Makai means “by the ocean” in Hawaiian. Join us on this adventure that begins in a dense forest, opening up to a trail with stunning coastal views where you can pick strawberry guavas to snack on. With help from your trusty guide, descend down to the ocean using ropes along the mountain slope and swim across the refreshing ocean bay (if conditions allow). Relax in glistening saltwater pools and marvel at a giant sea cave carved into the coast. We will bring snacks, water and take photos of your epic hike along the way. This tour has everything for the active adventurer!

This tour is private, and offers free GoPro photography, water and snacks. Transportation is provided in our spacious and comfortable minivans (seating 6), with additional pickup/drop-off options.
