Offroad tours in Hawaii?

I'm going to Hawaii next year with the family even though I don't want to. My family's idea of a vacation is sitting by the pool....ALL DAY! I can do that here and just put up a backdrop on the other side of the pool. So, like on all our vacations, I have to find things things to do on my own. Fishing is a given (hopefully with a fly rod) but I need to find a nice Offroad tour in a rented Jeep hopefully up a volcano. I didn't find anything online where you aren't just a passenger so I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

I don't think there are any off-road tours per say, of course you could always rent a stock Jeep and head out to some trails but a majority of areas are restricted to vehicles, because of the risk of damaging local wildlife and botanicals. Some beach access routes are okay but honestly it depends on which Island you head to. If you do head to O'ahu I can give you a few names and numbers but your idea of finding an Island Off-Road expedition isn't gonna be quite what you expected.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

G'day,
I was looking for something similar, before the wife changed plans.
I found a rental company that claimed to have FJ's for hire... can't remember the exact details, but a simple google search popped up the website...
Cheers
Baz

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

It would of made sense to say where in Hawaii I was staying, sorry. I'm staying at a place called Carribean Way in Wailea, Maui. I'm not looking for anything special, just a trail ride through the woods or something like that.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

Maui is our second home. Wailea is on the south end of the island. Wailea is the high rent district. There are ATV tours, zip lines, hiking etc. The drive up to the Haleakala is a paved road. Worth the drive but it is cold at 10,000ft. The road to Hana is good as is the hike to Waimoku Falls. Head up to Paia and check out the big wave surfing at Jawz. Tons of stuff to do on Maui.

Still to come, Baja Rack and install my 40" Rigid.

Vito, is this the place? Nice Villa!

ATV tours are your best bet. There's not much offroading here like Silver Bolt already stated.

Re: Offroad tours in Hawaii?

A little south of your condo is Makena Beach. Good snorkeling. Good chance to see turtles. Just south of that is "Little Beach" which is clothing optional. South of that is Big Beach which is not bad for boogie boarding.
