We had a lot of fun on this tour. The kayaking was reasonably easy, and the guide was helpful with tips. Our guide was Tanya. She had some good information on plant species. The waterfall was beautiful AND you can climb it with ropes, which...More

Went kayaking up a 2.5 mile river adventure. This is a physical trip. You have to paddle yourself so take that into account if you're considering this trip. At the end of our trip, there was a flash flood, so the guides parked us on...More

This is a great thing to do in Kauai. The guides are excellent, they are patient, you get good training, and I was thoroughly pleased by the entire adventure. I think this is far superior to a zip line (which I've only done once) because...More

This adventure was truly an amazing adrenaline rush! The staff were very knowledgeable and covered each step in great detail, so we felt well prepared before beginning to rappel down the waterfall. Practicing on a dry wall first was very helpful. This adventure is definitely...More

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity but it is not for everyone. You need to have some coordination and be physically fit. If you are afraid of heights do not attempt this. The guides are very professional and if you listen to them...More

We are bringing our early daughter and son-in-law next week and they want to do this rappelling waterfall activity. My husband and I are 60 and not interested in rappelling off the waterfalls but would like to go with them and see them do this. Do we have to pay the full price just to go and observe?

The hike is "down" to the falls. Once you're at the small one, it's almost a level stroll to the base of the larger one with just one small incline. The real climb is on the way back out as you switchback your way up to the... More

I am not sure what you are asking. Do you know that these tours are only a few hours in length? This is not a cruise. Sorry.
