This award-winning "walk on the wild side" is Maui’s boldest and most genuine adventure. You'll go RAPPELLING down waterfalls and jungle walls into the private rainforest canyon featured in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park.

It’s safe for the environment, and safe for you, too. You'll gear up in top-rated equipment, the same as your guides, and then "learn the ropes" by practicing basic rappelling on a 60-foot jungle cliff. After that, the 50-foot waterfall is next. Your third rappel is a 30-foot waterfall as you continue your descent into Maui's natural nooks and niches. It's wild!

We'll provide you with comfortable transportation from central Maui to the rappel site, a privately-owned property located an hour down the famous Hana Highway. You'll get to take in the sites of one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the world, and then take on one of the most exclusive and intimate rainforest and waterfall adventures on Maui, "The Valley Isle."

How it Works:

  • Drive half the famous Hana Highway with our skillful and knowledgeable guides.
  • Destination: a 30-acre botanical garden where you gear up like a pro in top-rated professional equipment including footwear, harness, backpack with dry keg, flotation jacket and helmet.
  • Hike a short distance under a rainforest canopy on private valley trails.
  • After briefing and demonstration from your guides, you'll train to use your harness and rope on a ridge overlooking the valley. Bring your camera!
  • Practice your moves on a 60-foot dry rappel down a jungle wall - this is where you'll find your inner canyoneer.
  • Take a 50-foot waterfall rappel into a large, natural pool. There's a short swim to edge, where there are places to rest and take photos.
  • Descend the 30-foot waterfall, also with a short swim at the bottom.
  • If long periods of heavy rains or severe weather cause high or swift water, we do alternate rappels a safe distance from the water course. High water days are often thrilling, as the sights and sounds of the roaring falls are quite spectacular.
  • The hike back to the top is a well-maintained trail under a cool canopy of plants, ferns and trees. Use the anchored ropes as handrailings, and stop to rest, take photos and drink water when necessary. You'll do a total of 1/2 mile of hiking with an elevation gain of about 300 feet.
