“Dionne Thank You so much for hooking Scott and I up to the Zip n’ Dip adventure. We had the best most exciting day. The guides at the Princville ranch were very helpful in getting us in our gear, and making sure it was all done correctly, and comfortable. They told us what to expect, and how to get the most out of our rides, safely. They were patient and encouraged us when we were wondering and having questions about how to do it. The guides were friendly, entertaining and very professional. The views were the best in the world. I got some great photos !! Each ride was exciting and got better and better. This adventure is well planned out. My gosh Kauai is a lush jungle of rivers and trees, the prettiest of Islands. The dip part of the adventure was awesome, I’m so glad I had my bathing suit on because the pond near the small waterfall was just like a movie setting. Lunch was delicious in a cute little gazebo and you could make the sandwich the way you want it , with chips, cookies, and even a friendly cat to help you with leftovers. I could go for this again!! Well worth the money. Thanks for recommending it Dionne.”

“Some friends of ours live on Kauai. They told us to come out and that they would take us on a tour of the island (they went over and beyond). Back to the tour… This would have to be by far the best thing we did in Hawaii. I chose to ride with my man just so I could enjoy the beautiful surroundings and be the photographer. Some of the best shots I have ever taken. The grounds were lush and full of wildlife. The guides were amazing. Very informative and extremely knowledgeable. Justin, Kimo, and one other (I apologize for not remembering his name) were our guides for the day. They were not only knowledgeable but very entertaining. They made you laugh at every chance they got. They were extremely into our safety and would let you know when and what to do at every obstacle we came upon. The guides always stopped and always asked if anyone wanted their picture taken. They are VERY good at what they do!!!! The tour we did takes you on a “movie” tour. We saw where Jurassic Park was filmed as well as many other movies. Best of all the rope swing that Harrison Ford swung on in Indiana Jones. They did not hold anything back and let everyone (that wanted to) swing from the rope. They also have a waterfall tour that we will be hitting up the next time we go out there. If I could give this tour 10 stars I would. Mahalo to the boys at Kipu Ranch!”
“Great time and great scenery, a must for all visitors to Hawaii. The crew keeps it interesting and safe for all ages. Great choice of vehicles and well maintained. Enjoyed the sites, people and stories.
I was a little reluctant to paddle and hike all on the same day, but it was a walk in the park! AJ was very informative, personable, and patient. We were able to proceed at our own pace. And yes, I did swim under the waterfall…after paddling and hiking, being able to take a dip and pose for a picture under the waterfall was the highlight of the adventure! Great food and awesome fresh fruit and other goodies! I’ll be back to do it again, and next time, I’m bringing the whole family!”
“My experience with Hawaii Adventure Center was a very positive one indeed! As a local resident of 21 years, born and raised, I really enjoyed being able to “play tourist” for a day and see a different side of the island. The tour I experienced was The Kauai Backcountry Ziplining tour, which consisted of 8 lines of gliding above wondrous, lush green valley and cool freshwater streams! Our tour guides were a delight through and through, and also, extremely helpful in calming my nerves, which went away as soon as the adrenaline kicked in. In addition to a rush like no other, the ziplining tour also provided a new appreciation for the beautiful island I reside on. I can thank Hawaii Adventure Center for being extremely helpful throughout the process! They were able to squeeze me in on such short notice and during high season too! They certainly know how to serve their customers, both local and visiting! Mahalo HIAC!!”
“We LOVED our adventure with Holo-Holo charters! My friend arrived Kauai with a horrific cold so we wanted to move our tour to Sunday instead of Saturday and they were most accommodating and as Saturday was super windy, we were so lucky on Sunday as it was a perfect day to be on the water. Check-in staff were very friendly and check-in was a breeze. The boat was very clean and comfortable with a great crew. Captain Amy got us right out to a beautiful snorkeling site and then off we went to Napali Coast. There are simply not words to describe the beauty of this coast line. The crew were very knowledgeable about the history of the island and pointed out lots of interesting things. Sails were raised and we clipped along with a school of dolphins and flying fish! Good food, lots of great stories, and Jeff and Wade made sure we had everything we needed to make it a wonderful day! The one thing I would suggest if for younger couples they may enjoy a zodiac tour versus a larger boat as there were children on our tour and older couples. We met a couple at our hotel who said they really enjoyed the zodiac as the boat was fast and it was with other people their age. I would most definitely recommend this tour to anyone! Thank you again.”
