Kona Waterfall Adventure Excursion Reviews
Can I give this any more stars? I would! The Secret Waterfalls of Kohala was the trip of a lifetime. Our guide was so much fun and had so much to tell us about the rainforest. He provided nice raincoats, backpacks and water bottles. Listen carefully...when they ask if you'd like a walking stick, the answer is YES!!! Everyone who didn't take one regretted it. This is a true hike through rainy, slippery and VERY muddy terrain with hanging bridges, rope trestles, tree root steps, rocks and did I say mud? You will be soppy, muddy and envigorated to your core. I have never felt so alive. I am overweight and not particularly graceful and it was just enough of a challenge that I had to work to keep up with the group. But it was worth it. We started with a lovely bus ride with narration, followed by a CRAZY ride in a WWII Pinzer up a two-track, rocky and seemingly vertical ascent into a private jungle area. After our fragrant hike we took the vehicle to an outcropping with the most incredible vista's I've ever witnessed. The photographs look like something made up in the game Myst. We watched a rain squal blow in over the ocean as we ate a nice boxed lunch. This tour was a dream come true. When we returned we had a little bit of time in the town of Kona, which is a cute little village with a scenic port. There is a small beach there where you can dip your toes or more into the water. Good bathrooms and services. Grabbed some Kona coffee at a shop across from the tender port. Pride of America tenders were easy rides, no waiting to get on and off the ship. Kona rocked!
