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

Saw this attraction online before we left and was determined to do it. We rappelled the 30ft and the 60ft. My husband even did the 60ft going down the middle with water crushing down on his head. It was awesome. So much fun! Even with a few cuts and bruises (which makes it even more memorable!) I would recommend this... More

This was a must do in Kauai! The guides are amazing. You will feel like family immediately. My dad is afraid of heights so the thought of rappelling down a 60 foot waterfall didn't exactly appeal to him. But with the help of the guides and the great training that they provide, he said that this was his favorite adventure... More

What a great adventure! This is an amazing tour company that will teach you how to wet rappel down a waterfall. There are two different adventures to choose from, depending on how big a waterfall you want to rappel down. The only thing disappointing is that the bigger waterfall tour was not available on the days we had free, so... More

We were convinced that this was going to be a little cheesy, but we're delighted to find that it was hard work and a true adventure. We did the one with both waterfall rappels and I'd definitely recommend this option. While the 30ft fall is challenging because of the shape and how slippery it was, the 60ft was certainly more...

A must do in Kauai! Guides are great, very professional and friendly. My husband is a little afraid of heights and had no problem! Kayak was great, but if we had to do it again we'd definitely go for the Hawaiian Dundee.
