Your day starts with a complimentary pick up between 7:00 and 7:30am in a 6 to 8 guest Luxury Limo-van. Tour returns between 4:30pm and 5pm. The beautiful Road to Hana will give you many photo opportunities along this spectacular sea coast drive. Some of the many sigts you'll experience is Ke'anae, a quaint Hawaiian village with peaceful taro fields and Waikani Falls, glistening with fresh mountain rain-water. Learn about the native Hawaiian people, the culture and the land.
You will discover Maui's own "Wonder of the World", the incredible Ka'eleku Cavern. This cave was created by Pele, the Goddess of Fire. This enormous subterranean lava tube resembles a chocolate-colored Lava Cathedral Cave. You will walk beneath the dense tropical rain forest of Hana through Pele's famous undground passage. You will learn and discover elephant's foot stalactites, mounds of chocolate colored lava drops and soufflé-like lava swirls formed over 30,000 years ago. After the 1 hour hike, enjoy a delicious Pacific Rim Cuisine lunch on the serene grounds, and then you will head back to your accommodations.
If conditions permit to swim in a fresh water pool under a cascading waterfall or an ocean swim at a black sand beach, so bring bathing suits and towels. The tour includes ice cold soft drinks, a light morning snack, and a Pacific Rim lunch.

Cruise Ship Clients
NCL cruise ship passengers are able do the Hana Cave Quest on their first day in port in Kahului. They will pick you up at the harbor shortly after you disembark. Please note that they cannot tour you on your second day in port.
Unfortunately Lahaina cruise ship passengers are not able to do this tour either on day one (you arrive too late) or day two (your cruise ship departs too early)
Van tours offer a nice advantage over driving around on your own. Many of the most scenic roads on Maui are rather narrow and winding with bridges that are only one lane wide. An experienced tour guide / driver who knows the road will ensure that everyone in your party gets to enjoy the view. Mini-coaches that these companies use sit higher than a regular rental car and offer superior visibility with oversized windows ... you'll see things looking over the top of the guardrail that you would miss if you were in a rental car. These vehicles are superior to a tour done in a bus (for obvious reasons) or a standard 14 passenger van that is difficult to crawl in and out of. Another advantage of the smaller vehicle with great visibility; don't be surprised if your guide knows your name by the middle of the tour.
If you love to drive on curvy winding one-lane roads that you've never seen before, you might enjoy the drive to Hana! Go for it! Many people HATE the drive to Hana, but love the ride there.
