Rappelling on Maui:
Hawaii's Coolest
Outdoor Activity

Maui Waterfall Rappelling Tour Canyoning Adventure

The Most Unique Thing to Do on Maui

And Maui's Only Waterfall Rappelling Tour. Your nature adventure takes place in a privately-owned, secluded waterfall valley, one of the few tour destinations of its kind. Get away from it all: The crowds, the traffic, the pace. Get into nature: Experience the Valley Isle in a more intimate, personal paradise of rainforests, waterfalls, pools, and streams. Everything you'll need is included; no experience necessary. Beginners and first-timers welcome. Your safety is your guides' top priority when delivering what visitors call the best day of their visit to Maui and the Hawaiian Islands.

Located halfway down the famous Road to Hana, you'll enjoy a curious mix of peace and excitement on this nature tour of "the other side of Maui." Relax and take in the sights on the way to this iconic, historic passage of the North Shore's Haiku. There's no better way to spend an active day away from the beach and appreciate all aspects of the island's beauty than to rappel down jungle cliffs into wild, inspiring, raw nature.

If you're feeling a sense of deja vu during your visit, maybe that's because this valley is so extraordinary that Steven Spielberg shot the opening scenes of his movie Jurassic Park here. Make your Maui waterfall rappelling tour day the most memorable of them all by starring in your own action adventure, with Maui waterfalls and greenery as the set.

Incredible experience that we will talk about for years. Seriously, I don’t leave reviews but you don’t want to miss this experience. Naomi and Shauna were incredible guides and teachers (for their first day lol). I laughed, I cried, it was better than “Cats”.

We absolutely loved this adventure during our recent trip to Maui! Our instructors Naomi and Shauna were so fun, knowledgeable and professional, and they really brought the experience to life. Our fearless teenage son had a blast, and my husband and I were able to face our fear of heights and have a great time too, thanks to the guidance and patience of our instructors. We definitely recommend booking this tour, and since you'll already be halfway along the "Road to Hana", continue your journey along it afterwards and see the black sand beaches at Wai'anapanapa State Park like we did. You won't regret it!

Best experience in rappelling and staff was amazing. Our guides Jonas and Elena were very patient and helpful. The climb back up the stairs to the top at the end will definitely burn the calf muscles

Our family had a really fun rappel trip thanks to the great people at Rappel Maui! We began the day with a beautiful drive up the road to Hana before the crowds, got to Rappel Maui and were greeted in person by Shauna, and then given all the details in an informative but not intimidating way by Naomi. These girls are rock stars who put us at ease with their great sense of humor and effortless command of the ropes. We loved it!!

EPIC. That is the one word to describe this adventure. Where else are you going to get to rappel down waterfalls in the lush jungle of Maui or any place!? Nowhere. This was one of the coolest experiences that my wife and I have enjoyed on island, just a blast and glad we did this. Huge thanks to our guides Naomi & Jackson!

Naomi and Jackson were great! Very fun and professional. Take your wedding ring off before you go bc mine went flying off after I did a flip and a half off the waterfall above the crocodile pit during the hail storm in the cyclone but I found it hanging on the last ledge! We had an awesome time. Mahalo!

Elena, Jonas and Naomi made our rappel experience amazing! We did a lot of amazing things in Hawaii and this was at the top of the list. We spent the most time with Naomi, because she was with us at the bottom of each rappel and brought us from place to place. She was absolutely AMAZING and made the entire experience that much better! The experience was very secluded since tourists aren’t allowed in the area where you rappel so you get a private tour of some amazing spots! Plus, the area where you rappel is part of where they filmed Jurassic park. It’s that cool!

This excursion ranks up with our Road to Hana. My son and I had a blast. He was hesitant with this one, but floating in the pool below the waterfall he turned saying he was so glad he did it. Naomi and Shauna were outstanding. Two great ladies who love what they do, and their attitudes rub off on all the participants. We would do it again and wouldn’t think twice!

Rappel Maui is an adventure that redefines thrilling experiences in paradise! Our guides, Shawna and Naomi, were not just instructors; they were entertainment and safety rolled into one perfect package.The stunning cliffs set against the backdrop of the Garden of Eden Arboretum created a picturesque scene straight out of a dream. Surprisingly, the adventure doubled as an educational expedition, introducing us to the world of fruits, trees, and local fauna.What sets Rappel Maui apart is the seamless blend of adrenaline, learning, and sheer fun. The gallery gift shop added a unique touch, reflecting the island’s beauty in every piece.Trust me, if you’re planning a Hawaiian getaway, this experience is an absolute must! It’s the perfect balance of excitement, natural beauty, and learning, making it an unforgettable adventure.

Shauna and Abby were the best! Had an amazing time rappelling down waterfalls with outstanding views and a one of a kind experience. Swam in beautiful pools at the base of waterfalls in a gorgeous rainforest. Would highly recommend to anyone, at any age or level of experience. My partner and I took our 15 and 16 year old teenagers as well as my 65 year old mother. Everyone had a wonderful, unforgettable time even with zero experience. 10 out of 10!

Shauna’s comedic timing was on point & Abbie’s soft-heartedness was very comforting. Our group’s experience being the first timers through the woods down the falls was impeccable. Highly recommend them for your next trip!

This was a blast! The last and only time I've ever rappelled I was a senior in high school. Now I'm 58, overweight and out of shape but I couldn't resist giving this a go. Our tour guides, Abby and Naomi, were knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic about our rappelling experience. The only thing we did wrong was not take a camera. Be sure to take one as there will be ample opportunities for some great pics to be taken.Go with a group of friends! You won't regret it!!!

Took my son today and we had a blast. This is a must do in Maui and top of my list for adventure here. Naomi and Abbie were fantastic guides. I also loved the small groups. The scenery is spectacular.

The guides, Abbie and Naomi, were amazing! They make you feel so comfortable doing the uncomfortable and they’ll cheer you on the whole way. The waterfalls you rappel are beautiful and the small hike to get to/from (~5 minutes each) has gorgeous views. I even had a blast climbing through rocks/boulders between waterfalls. 20/10 would recommend :)

The views were incredible, and there's really no way to describe how incredible it is to rappel down next to waterfalls!Our guides, Ropheka and Abbie were amazing as well - they made sure we were prepared for each leg of the journey, but made the whole experience fun at the same time! They also had great recommendations for places to eat after our tour!

An absolutely excellent experience. My wife, 2 kids 12 and 14, and I went on this tour this week and we had Elena and Jonas as our guides. They were absolutely fantastic. My wife was very nervous about rappelling and had never done it before. They were extremely calm and talked us through everything that we needed to do to rappel. We were inexperienced and they were great at explaining and giving us tips to help. They both worked together very well to make sure that we were safe and not to mention they were such nice people. The waterfalls were beautiful and so cool to be able to rappel down them. In fact the second waterfall they even let us choose a drier way down or to rappel into the waterfall which was great to have the choice. If you are brave I recommend the wetter way down but watch your steps. It’s a beautiful place to get to do this fun activity. We were lucky that it was a beautiful day as well. This was a very memorable experience and can’t wait to tell all our family about it and tell them to go!
