Kualoa’s new open-air UTV *(Ultra Terrain Vehicle) 4WD vehicles are a great way to see Kualoa up close and personal! You will drive your own UTV for the tour, and one of you (21 and over) will be the driver. Drivers may swap out mid-tour, and each UTV can hold between 2 to 6 people (depending on how many kids there are in your party) … and we do not mix different families or parties together in the same vehicle, unless you request that. Whether you have just 2 or up to six people, you will have your own UTV to drive on trails deep into the scenic valleys and to remote areas rarely visited by others. Our UTV tours go out rain or shine – rambling through the mud and crossing seasonal streams are part of the fun! Our one hour tour will take you over a saddle trail to visit movie sites located on our beautiful 1,000 acre Ka’a’awa Valley. These family friendly UTV Vehicles allow you to talk to each other and take pictures during the tour which is not able to be done on single ATV tours.

You can sit in the small restaurant area, or roam around the gift shop. I caught up on writing post cards while waiting for my group since we took different tours.
