We have upgraded our Hakalau birdwatching adventure and are proud to announce our first publicly available “HFT Exclusive” product. This tour will now be run in one of our brand new 4WD Short Wheel Base Mercedes Sprinters. These vehicles are perfect for our birdwatching tours as they are designed for smaller, more intimate groups (9 passengers max) and deliver a rugged build that allows access to those off-the-beaten-path locations. To top it off, they offer all the luxury comforts including leather captains seats, USB charging ports and a roof mounted awning. Riding in style with our best in class field guides to a restricted access nature preserve, you'll experience a truly unique Hawaii Island adventure.
Guests should be able to hike on uneven or rocky terrain. We sometimes encounter cool, wet or muddy conditions. Other tour restrictions may apply.
What to Bring & Wear: Sturdy closed-toe shoes or boots, long pants, and a light rain jacket.
Departures are dependent on availability of restricted-access permits. Tour time is 11 - 12 hours round trip, departing from Queen's Marketplace at Waikoloa Beach Resort, the junction of Highway 19 and Waikoloa Road and Hawaii Forest & Trail Headquarters.
Cancellations within the cancellation period and “no-shows” will be charged the FULL AMOUNT of the tour.
