Do it all -- waterfall and rain forest hike, ocean kayak and snorkel -- all in one trip. This tour showcases Maui's beauty both offshore and onshore. First, we kayak along West Maui's rugged coastline for 2.5 hours. We snorkel by sliding off the kayak into a sea filled with colorful fish and large, green sea turtles. Then we hike the one-mile Short Waterfalls Walk. We're hiking to two waterfalls, from 10 to 20 feet high, where we swim, climb and jump into clear, fresh pools. No experience needed for the kayak. We teach you well.
