This Ain't No Zipline - Island Adventures

Starting at: $159.00

Enjoy kayaking, hiking and rappelling. The tour begins with a guided kayak trip up the Hule'ia River. An easy downwind paddle (70-90 minutes) into the heart of the National Wildlife Refuge. The first short hike is a 10-15 minute walk along a lush forest trail, to an awaiting Island Adventure 14 passenger van. A 6-minute van ride takes you to the beginning of a private trail. (Island Adventures leases 40 acres of private land adjoining the Hulei'a National Wildlife Refuge. The waterfalls are exclusive to Island Adventures). After a detailed lesson on rappelling, you start the second hike down to the waterfalls. This is a 15 minute nature hike through a tropical forest abundant with succulent guava, passion fruit, laua'e fern and noni fruit, leading to your ultimate destination, two secluded private waterfalls! The first 30 foot waterfall is named "Bamboo Falls". Here is where you get your chance to rappel. The second location is"Papakole'a Falls" a 60 foot cascading waterfall where you have the opportunity to swim and take photos (not a rappelling site). Then you will hike back to a shaded picnic area for a custom gourmet picnic lunch from Don's Bread and Deli Connection, over looking the river and Haupu Mountain Range. The tour ends with guests being driven back to Da Life. Sunscreen, bug spray and sunglasses are recommended. This tour does not cancel because of rain.

Mika Neff
Absolutely one of the best things we did on our 3 week vacation. There were 8 in our party, 6 family members and another couple that we did not know. A nice small group. None of us had any prior experience with any type of repelling and several of us had never Kayaked. The family run business was a blessing and we were often referred to as "Ohana", Hawaiian for family. The instructions were clear and practical and if you aren't paying attention (as our 18 year old son who was talking while the instructions were given) you will be told about it. I had no issue with this because there could be very serious consequences, if you miss them. Also, if you have repelled before, you may have ideas of exactly how things should be done, however it is still very important to pay attention because it is quite different repealing the surface of a slippery waterfall with water rushing on you and you can't see where to place your feet. Everything is done by feeling your way with your feet for foot holes. I also recommend the special water shoes that are offered for a small fee in the beginning. It is possible to use any water shoes but the ones you rent slip less and fit great so they make you feel more secure. The instructors are concerned for your utmost safety and even allowed me to practice my dry repel a 2nd time to ensure I felt safe and comfortable. We had so much fun learning Hawaiian history/culture, seeing the island in it's purest forms and experiencing the thrill of concurring a waterfall. Highly recommend this tour!
