Absolute must do... - Water rappel was the higlight for us in Kauai! If you are re novice instructional teaching you get is great, and i and my 13 year old felt very safe. Matt and Katie were great with knowledge of area and flora fauna around. The hike to the waterfall is nice, but real thrill begins when you get to the edge of that waterfall and lean back and stare down the waterfall... let yourself go.. absolute must do..

Must do for the adventurous type - This was a highlight of our trip. The crew takes great care in each individual. They teach you really well to ensure your success. My 14 year old was a little nervous but quickly gained confidence and wanted to go first down the 60 foot waterfall. I would recommend to anyone who likes some adventure

I would go again! Awesome experience - Best experience was the guides and lessons on how to repel. I was with my husband and terrified of heights and was able to conquer my fears. It was such a great experience and the instructors were very knowledgeable and very encouraging.

Best Kauai Experience ... Best Experience Ever! - Absolutely the most exciting activity we did on Kauai! If you think hiking to a waterfall is great rappelling down one is AMAZING! I have never rappelled before, but the instructional teaching you get is great, and I felt very safe. When you get to the edge of that waterfall and lean back you are in for an experience of a lifetime! There aren't enough stars in the sky to give this experience.
