It’s not zip lining, it’s not rock climbing, it’s RAPPELLING. Rappelling is a controlled descent down a rock face (in this case a waterfall) using a rope. This once in a lifetime experience is a thrilling way to get up close and personal with one of Kauai’s most popular natural attractions. Our expertly trained staff use the BEST gear and promote SAFETY first.

Waterfall Rappel Details
This guided rappel tour departs from Da Life Outdoor Gear shop (next to Duke’s). A 10-minute van ride will take you to our scenic rappel training area. After a detailed rappel safety lesson, and a practice run on the dry wall, we’ll hike to secluded waterfalls. Our first rappel is the cascading 30’ Bamboo Falls, followed by the towering 60’ Papakolea Falls. The tour ends with a picnic lunch overlooking the Hule’ia Watershed and Ha’upu Mountain range. Guaranteed to be the most unique experience of your vacation!
