This was amazing! The repelling was something I have never done. I have been to Kauai 3 times - I have hiked, kayaked, etc. but NEVER something like this - The staff was AMAZING!! Each staff member cared about how "our" experience was going to be and how to make "our" repelling experience safe, exciting and fun!! It was all... More

The wife always wanted to try paddle boarding and Kauai and Kalapaki Beach seemed like the ideal place to take the plunge! And it was! It was a great experience from registering online to securing equipment to the instructor's personality (Erric), and his excellent instruction and attention. After overcoming some initial apprehension she had great fun and now wants to... More

We finally made it to Hawaii with the persistent "push" from our brother and sister-in-law! We had an amazing time hiking, touring, beaching, and eating our way through this beautiful place. "This Ain't No Zipline" rappelling experience with Island Adventures was the best thing EVER!! We've been on many tours throughout our travels. They've all had what our brother calls... More

This was our fourth trip to Kauai and the concierge recommended rappelling as a brand new activity for us. They called and confirmed our reservation for the next morning (Saturday). Several staff at our hotel said to report back on how the tour was since it was so new. We received a further confirmation call and email from the tour... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to do something a little more fun than riding a cruise ship around the island.We signed up for the waterfall rappel. They also do a kayak & rappel, but it was not available on the dates we were on the island. This adventure was the most fun we had on the island. The training was... More

My wife and I decided at the last minute to give this a try. We were very nervous as we are both afraid of heights and have never repeled before. The crew is top notch and very serious. This is not a tour for someone with health issues within reason. The instruction time is very good and after doing the... More

I am a 60 year old guy (still in decent shape) trying to act like a 30 year old, so the advertisement for the waterfall Rappel adventure called me by my first name! While they say no experience is needed, this is not for couch potatoes. You best bring your "A" game without any mobility limitations. Expect to leave some... More

We had a wonderful experience with on the waterfall rappelling adventure! The training was great and I had complete confidence in the guides. They took everyone's safety very seriously and gave us freedom to do it as much on our own as we could while still having a guide to help us and keep us safe when needed. If you... More

This was my second time going (my first was 3 years ago) and was just as much fun the second time around. The team is very energetic and makes the whole trip exciting. Tanya shared a lot of interesting history as we kayaked up the river which was a gorgeous trip looking up at the mountains and surrounded by flowering... More

We were the other couple on the 4 person tour reviewed below. I echo everything that FransK9 says in their review. The training was great and I felt very safe. The kayak trip down the river was super easy but filled with great stories from our guide. The scenery was beautiful. The rappelling was action packed and I would do... More
