If you're looking for a real adventure, this is a MUST try. Why just look at waterfalls when you can rappel IN one? There are enough detailed reviews on here that tell you what to expect on the tour, so I'm here to tell you that you just need to experience it! Do it.

They took our family of 5 on this adventure. They taught us all how to rappel down a "dry" wall, with painstaking instructions. They took all the time we needed to individually show us how it's done. Then we hiked (short hike) to a 30-foot waterfall where we applied our new skills. After that we walked to the taller, 60-foot waterfall which was incredible. There was no fear because they showed us exactly what to do, and they were positioned with one person at the top (holding the rope) and the other at the bottom (other end of same rope). WE never felt less than in control, but it was wild rappelling down adjacent (and partially in) to a waterfall. Amazing experience!

Amazing experience! We enjoyed our waterfall rappelling adventure. The staff was friendly and did a great job teaching us how to rappel. I highly recommend doing this you while in Kauai.

Phenomenal experience with amazing guides! This was what my son wanted to do for his 10th birthday, and he came away smiling and excited.
