My husband and I and our 3 children (19, 16 & 10 years old) are still raving about this tour. It was the best thing we did while on Kauai and we were so well entertained and taken care of by our fun and kind guides. We recommend this to any family with a sense of adventure!

A great tubing trip down the old sugar plantation! Cyerrah was our guide and was awesome! Very knowledgeable and funny. We even stopped for a sight seeing adventure on the way. Not exactly that fun to get splashed when it's cold outside though ;)

One of the highlights of our trip. The staff was very knowledgable, compassionate and fun. They are very focused on safety. Even so, I managed to dislocate my finger while rappelling. I did one of the things they said NOT to do (not on purpose obviously, just a mistake when I got a little spooked). They took me to the... More

By far the best experience while on Kauai! The owners are amazing the guides are incredible! Very exciting, huge adrenaline rush! Rent the felt shoes or bring some along. "Ride the Bull" on the 60 foot waterfall! You won't regret it! I will do this again when I come back to Kauai! Don't miss out on this. Book early before... More

Hands down the BEST excursion I've ever done......and I've done many! The guys were incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging and they made you feel safe. Pay attention to the instruction at all times, this is totally worth the risk. Such an amazing day with hiking in the jungle, adventure and a great lunch to help ease down the adrenaline. I HIGHLY recommend... More

Tanya and Charlie Dundee are the real deal. We had a fantastic time. Safety is a top priority with this team. It isn't the condescending kind of safety like tie your shoes or you'll trip. It's like, if you end up upside down in a waterfall rappel here's what you do. It's strange because Tanya and Charlie are people I... More

Who wouldn't want to rappel down gorgeous waterfalls in backcountry Kauai? Rappelling with Island Adventures on their Hawaiian Dundee has got to be one of the coolest experiences of my life. This is not just an "activity" - it is an exhilarating, adrenaline pumping ADVENTURE. Saula, his wife and guides give absolute top notch instruction and support during the entire... More

We are so glad we met the wonderful folks at Island Adventures. They are not only professional and skilled, but they are knowledgable, fun and, being native Hawaiians, they brought the amazing traditions and heritage to light for us. Kayaking the peaceful river - and hiking to the beautiful waterfalls was a great adventure! Getting soaked under the power of... More
