It went for over an hour, but felt like only an hour. The walk was very short taking long stops, so if you’re tired you don’t have to worry about walking very far!

I think that it’s a very fun adventure if you’re just visiting Hawaii, make sure to squeeze it into you’re schedule because it’s absolutely worth it!
