Hakalau Forest Reserve Exclusive



Our Hakalau birdwatching adventure is run in one of our 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. 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.

Highlights include:
Gain entry into a restricted-access National Wildlife Refuge
Discover rare native plants and animals, including carnivorous caterpillars and happy-faced spiders
Search for native & endangered birds including Amakihi, Apapane, Elepaio, Akepa, Akiapolaau, and Iiwi
Our interpretive guides are expert bird trackers
