It was pouring rain throughout our ride, and nevertheless this was really a top notch experience. Waipio valley is simply beautiful, and Cecil and Tracy were just lovely guides, and locals to boot. Would definitely do it again!

The best part of our journey. Very well organized and Micah was very helpful and knowledgeable. Nicole was quick to answer any questions we had before arrival. No complaints at all. Worth every cent.

A hat, sunblock, pants, and a closed shoe preferably with a heal. I would wear a shirt that shades your shoulders. I loved this experience both times I went.
