Can You Go ATV Riding in Hawaii?

Absolutely, you can! The most important part is picking the right Island.

With Kauai ATV you can ride all over the little town of Koloa located on the least populated island of Kauai.

The Kauai ATV tour will take you from mauka to makai on old sugar cane haul roads used in the plantation days. You’ll learn the history of the beloved Koloa town and share in the magic of Kauai.

Our brand new Polaris UTVs will take you into a once-in-a-lifetime off-road adventure deep in the unseen, unspoiled backcountry of Kauai’s south shore.

Rain or shine, you will motor through thousands of acres on historic Grove Farm terrain. For 20 years we’ve shared our Garden Island playground with malihini(New-comers) and kama’aina(Native Hawaiins) alike.

Alongside the old Koloa Sugar Mill you will see classic Hollywood movie locations like Jurassic Park and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Animals You’ll See On A Hawaii ATV Tour

If you’re a bird lover, you will see wild chickens (Moa) everywhere! They’re super adaptive and have made every part of Kauai their stomping grounds.

Everyone has the same question. Where did they come from?

They are also referred to as Junglefowl because that’s what Polenesians called them. Polenesians brought them to Kauai when they first settled here somewhere between 300 and 800 AD.

Then there’s the Muscovy Ducks (Koloa). You’ll be able to tell the Muscovy Ducks (Koloa)apart right away. They’re best known for their black and white coloring on their bodies and red faces.

There is also the Hawaiian Coots (Alae ke’oke’o) are such a unique bird. They’re black with a white bill and a white stripe going up their forehead.

Hawaiian Boar (Pua’a) were also believed to be brought to Hawaii by Polynesians. Found on all main islands except Lana’i. They are omnivores but they mostly forage for vegetation and worms by digging their long snouts into the ground. It is legal to hunt Boar in Kauai.

What To Wear On An ATV Ride 

The trip proceeds rain or shine and rain or shine you WILL get dirty. Kauai is famous for its Technicolor red volcanic dirt. If the weather has been dry, you will get what is called a ‘red dirt tan’. If it has been raining, then you will get a complimentary mud bath treatment.

Wet or dry, remember that red dirt stains absolutely everything! Do not bring or wear anything that cannot get dirty, muddy or wet, and make sure to have closed toed shoes as flip-flops do not make for good ATV shoes.

The less you bring the better. We are not responsible for lost or damaged personal belongings. If it’s valuable, don’t bring it on tour with you.

If it’s raining, bring a poncho or a raincoat. Even though you are in Hawaii, it can get chilly when you get wet and stay wet.

Kauai ATV provides you with a complimentary souvenir bandana to keep the dirt, dust and mud out of your mouth.
