    Thumbs down What's with the jacked up atv prices?

    I just looked on Kini Kini's website for atv tours and noticed they jacked up the prices for a half day tour to $110. What are they nuts? That thing was in the $80's a few months last time I looked and back to 2006 in the $60's. Thanks but no thanks Kini Kini, you may be ranked #1 in atv tours but I'll pass and put my $110 elsewhere.

    Maybe it has to do with the price of gas? It does seem a bit pricey though

    That's way over priced.

    ...taking off my moderator's hat...

    As far as I am aware, there are only two ATV excursion operators on the island, though last I knew De Palm subcontracted out to Watapana so some might think there were three.

    When you compare the two on a rate per hour, they are pretty darn close.
    If you want to go the Natural Pool you only have a choice of Watapana's morning tour.

    Comparing the most comparable tour, with Kini Kini you would end up paying $25 extra for a half hour less and still visit the Natural Pool.
    With Watapana you can only sightsee in the afternoon and they substitute Arashi for the Natural Pool.

    Personally, I would be hard pressed to do an island tour in the middle of the day's heat. It was plenty hot enough touring on the ATV in the morning, but that is just me.
