Earlier this week I heard Hawaii 5-0 was filming in Hakipu’u Valley today. While driving a jeep through the valley this morning, my guests and I came right up on the set for the show. With a downed helicopter on the left side of the road, and a helicopter flying right above us, just below tree-height, blowing smoke throughout the valley; the guests were stoked to be on set!
Some of the actors could even be seen in the distance. Another tour guide told me he saw “McGarrett” and “Chin” riding a quad through the valley!
During a blogger meeting in the afternoon, we wanted to get out on the field and try to come up with a new blog. I had an idea. . . let’s go look for McGarrett! We wanted to see if we could see the actor (Alex O’Loughlin) on set, like some of the guests got to do earlier in the day.
We hopped in a jeep and drove through Hakipu’u where the Jungle Expedition tour goes. We were surprisingly rerouted and decided to pull over and stop. I turned the jeep off, then we heard, “Rolling!” All of a sudden, gun shots were fired! Steve and Claudia yelled, “They got me!”
Even though we didn’t get to see McGarrett this time, I’m sure they will soon to return to film on Kualoa’s beautiful property. Maybe next time!
