This is the perfect choice of adventure in a short, easy walk to two waterfalls in our gorgeous Maui rainforest valley. There's plenty of time to swim and jump from waterfall ledges into deep freshwater pools, plus learn about the island and its rainforests from our knowledgeable guides. Fun, easy, and great for families, or if you are limited on time.

Need a bathroom? Porta potties or toilets are near most trailheads. After that, search for privacy foliage.
Should we use our own backpacks? We prefer you use ours, then you don't accidentally walk off with our gear, and you don't get your pack dirty.
What are these ninja water shoes? Japanese tabis (fishermen shoes). The felt sole clings to wet, mossy rocks better than any other shoe. They can be slippery in mud, however. Best to wear them in the water, not on the hike.
Bugs love you? Got a bite? Ask your guide for AfterBite -- pharmaceutical ammonia that neutralizes the toxin. Takes away the itch. Also very good for bee, spider, scorpion, centipede and hornet stings.
What are flash floods? Sudden, very rapid flooding in streams, due to heavy rainfall. Rare, but get out of the water if your guide blows a whistle. You need to react very quickly and head for high ground. Listen to your guide.
Do you have medical issues? (back, knees, heart, diabetes, pregnancy) Write these down below or tell your guide.
Is tipping the guide common? Yes, this is a service industry. If you're happy with your guide, a 10-15% tip is the best way to show appreciation.
Our guide's name: Isaiah Extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, went beyond what we expected, great photographer (took an amazing Panoramic) and a true asset to Short Waterfalls Hike. We not only did 2 waterfalls but 3! We had the time and our team was quite fast. The waters were so refreshing, I kept splashing every time I could. Bathrooms= porta potty's (take wipes) they help. Other than that, enjoy the walk and the fruit trees! We had guava, banana's, saw giant avocados, passion fruit- delicious! Our team consisted of 7 ppl, we all happen to be from California! Truly a gem and a must do! We had juicy pineapple and cookies as we drove back to our drop off! They did provide water, snacks and a backpack (we had our own and we brought our water shoes as well, worked out great!) prior to our walk! Thanks Isaiah and thanks Short Waterfalls Hike for accommodating us THAT morning!!!! Cheers from the BAY AREA!
It was perfect for us, a few hours in the morning and the rest of the day to do other things. Loved the hike, our guide Roger showed us a wide variety of plant. The waterfalls were incredible, plenty of time for swimming. We went back on our own we enjoyed it so much.
Want a hike the whole family will enjoy? Want to explore the rainforest valley and swim under (and jump into) two waterfalls? Want to learn about the history of Maui and its people along with the current plant, animal, and insect life on Maui? If so, take this perfect tour that will no doubt build lasting fun memories for all! Our guide, Tony, was awesome!! Having lived on Maui for 37 years and working as a guide for the past 12, he brought his passion for Maui and all its wonder to this tour. He enthusiastically drove us to, and walked us through, this wonderful hiking and swimming experience. He got us to swim behind one of the waterfalls, jump off rocks into a plunge pool below, and engaged us in the marvel of Maui :)
