Kualoa Ranch UTV Tour Details
- This exceptional opportunity to tour Kualoa Ranch’s iconic Jurassic Valley is a sure way to make incredible memories to last your lifetime. The lush jungle landscapes and towering mountains overhead have been featured in many films and this tour will take you to see many recognizable sites along the way.
- Get the opportunity to drive your own open-air UTV (Ultra Terrain Vehicle) and bring your whole group along for the adventure. Drivers must be at least 21 years of age and may swap out mid-tour. Our state-of-the-art UTV’s can accommodate groups from 2-5 people per vehicle, and 6 if smaller children are aboard. Operating in rain or shine, you will drive along the saddle road that leads into remote areas through stunning landscapes of 1,000 acre Ka’a’awa “Jurassic” Valley. After a good rain, you may have to cross rivers and peer up at mystical waterfalls that pour over the cliff tops overhead. This offroad adventure may get muddy, so dress accordingly! We would suggest wearing comfortable clothing, sunglasses, and a hat, bringing sunscreen and a camera.
- There are multiple options for this tour. Choose from a 1-hour or 2-hour 4WD UTV adventure, or the Exclusive UTV Tour option that includes lunch and lasts 2.5 hours.
- An advantage of the UTV versus a traditional ATV adventure is that younger passengers can ride along, you’ll have opportunities to stop and take photos at will, and it is easy to converse with each other in the vehicle. Friendly guides will show you all of the exciting features along the way and make sure to keep a low guide-to-guest ratio of one guide per 5 UTV’s so that they can focus on creating the best experience for your group.
- The Jurassic Valley UTV Ride is a very popular tour and can book out 1-2 weeks in advance, so make your reservations early!
- Transportation to and from Waikiki hotels is available for $15 per person. There are early morning and mid-morning departure times to Kualoa Ranch that return throughout the afternoon to Waikiki.

About Hawaii Tours
Erica and I are very much DIY Hawaii travel people but sometimes a guided tour is the best and easiest way to experience the islands. A guided tour supports local tour guides, reduces the number of cars on the roads, and they can take care of permits and reservations that are hard to acquire. We have developed a relationship with one of the owners of Hawaii Tours, Daniel Logtenberg, and trust him with our Hawaii vacation planning.
Here is what Dan has to say about his company and tours:
We’ve been offering high-quality cultural and sightseeing tours throughout the Hawaiian islands for 20+ years – and we love what we do! So expect to be greeted with a friendly “Aloha” when you contact us by phone or when we pick you up at your hotel. Also, we’ll always do our very best to make your Hawaiʻi dream vacation a reality because we know you have worked hard, and your holiday time is important. You see, it’s not just our pleasure; it’s our honor to be of service to our guests.
We take great pride in showing you the natural, historical, and cultural splendors of our beautiful tropical paradise. Hawaiʻi has a special place in our hearts, which is why respecting and caring for these precious islands is of utmost importance to us. We care for the land or “Malama the aina” by showing you the best of Hawaiʻi so that you can fall in love with this incredible destination too… just as we did so many years ago.
