That will whiz you through the air
To Maine or Spain or Africa
If you just tell it where

So will you let it take you
Where you have never been before
Or will you buy some drapes to match
And use it on your floor?( shel Silverstein)

This hunt was soooo cool! We are on a tight budget and camping for two weeks on the island. We could not afford most of the activities on Kauai like zip lining and boat tours n such, even though it’s so gorgeous its satisfying, but it’s fun to do something ya know? so I was a little sad until we found this amazing island journey. It completely compels you to get personal with the island, locals, and get a taste that’s hard to get unless you’ve stayed for like 6 months or something. Totally worth it as our one activity. Tara recommended we play full on to make the most of it and we did. We met great people,learned so much,heard great stories and all of us jumped off the pier into the crystal blue water together :) We got a ton of gorgeous & funny pics, Instagram worthy friends loved them lol Such a cool experience, forsure recommend it if your gonna do anything & yea.. give it your all!!

This was such a fun and creative adventure! I loved how Tara was a game show host and came with us right in our pocket interacting and adding on to the clues we found as we went. You could see a lot of thought and study went into this game design. We learned a lot of fun stories,expressed our creative sides that she encouraged and met some beautiful and friendly people we never would have met. One clue asked us to give the friendliest local an award. I love escape rooms but I have to admit this was better! Planning for a rematch at Tara’s Santa Fe hunt in December!

It wasn't interesting enough for the price. Host was in another location, maybe not even in Hawaii. Meeting point was extremely crowded and to be wandering around looking at my phone was dangerous.

Such a cool unique experience! My kids and I had a good time learning about local history, talking to locals, and exploring. We really loved Fig too! ❤️ Recommend this if you want something fun and different!

Tara knows the location well! Fun little adventure offers a nice opportunity to connect with Hanalei, learn some lore, and connect with your group and local community. Take care to be respectful and considerate of locals who are facing large fluxes of travelers all at once.

We loved doing this scavenger hunt as a family! Well worth it to get Tara’s insight in Hawaiian culture and Hanalei! She was very energetic and taught our kids so much!
