This tour travels along winding coastal cliffs without guardrails. The roads are completely paved and it is safe to drive - locals do it everyday - but it is all about what you’re comfortable with. If you are not a confident driver, afraid of heights, or get motion sickness easily, we recommend you drive about halfway to the Nakalele Blowhole, then turn around. If you choose to do this, we do not provide audio directions for the return trip, but you can still use the offline map to guide you.
In Hawaiian the word malama means “to take care” and the word aina means “land.” When you’re in Hawaii, we ask that you practice this and pick up your trash; respect the marine life, plants, and animals; and avoid spots that are unsafe. Hawaii’s natural resources are precious, it’s up to all of us to help preserve these resources for generations by respecting the aina when you visit.
IMPORTANT: Bailey House Museum closes at 4pm (if you’re starting the tour in Kahului this will be one of the last stops), so plan accordingly.

Yes, but it depends when you’re traveling. In the summer, the waves are generally calmer and safe for swimming. However, in the winter (October through March) waves can be extremely rough and we recommend you avoid swimming during this time. Always use your best judgement and please note there is only one beach with lifeguards on this tour and that’s at DT Fleming Beach.
