Hule’ia is best known as the site for filming a wide range of major motion pictures including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Lost World. Hike lush jungle trails through a fern-covered valley to the secluded pools and waterfalls (ropeswings optional). Rather than paddling back into the wind, finish your kayaking adventure in style with a relaxing ride back on a motorized canoe through this treasured area, which is listed on the National Register of Historic places. The only kayak tour in all of Hawaii with return by motorized canoe, it’s easygoing fun and excitement for everyone.
