You’ll experience amazing views of tropical waterfalls from multiple overlooks at Wailuku River, including a private viewing area at famous Rainbow Falls and a roaring waterfall generating hydroelectricity.

TravelShack's Choice

Why we recommend this option over others
  • All on private land with virtually no one else around
  • Minimal time stuck in a van, as all of the waterfalls are near each other and very close to downtown Hilo, so you spend the day immersed in nature, not simply being driven around for quick photo ops
  • The most reputable and longest running small group tour operator on the Big Island (almost 25 years)
  • Intimate group of only 2-12 people
