If you travel past Honokaa on Highway 19 towards Waimea there are a couple activities you might want to consider. Both are run by native Hawaiians.


  • If you enjoy horseback riding then we recommend Dahana Ranch which is a few miles past Honokaa heading towards Waimea. Dahana Ranch is the only native Hawaiian owned ranch on the Big Island and is located on the slopes of Mauna Kea, the tallest Hawaii volcano. Mauna Kea is in fact the tallest mountain in the world if measured from its base on the floor of the ocean. My wife and I quite enjoyed the one time we rode horses on the ranch. It was incredible to ride on the slopes of the volcano and other than the cowboy who guided us we were the only ones on the range that day. Call (808) 885-0057 or toll free (888) 399-0057 or visit http://www.dahanaranch.com.


  • Fluminí da Ditch is back after being closed by the earthquake in 2006. Our friends speak very highly of this eco-system 2.5 mile tour. After being transported to the site via special vehicles you board kayaks and cruise along the famed Kohala Ditch System where you pass through a Hawaiian rainforest via 10 earth tunnels, water flumes and native flora & fauna. This too is located past Honokaa heading towards Waimea.  http://www.kohaladitchadventures.com - (808) 889-6000 or toll free 1-888-288-7288.
