Which Tour Time is Best for Me?

We operate every day of the year, and with as many as five possible tour time slots per day, that means there are ample opportunities for you to find a way to work a Rappel Maui tour time into your itinerary the next time you #letHawaiihappen.

When Are the Tours?

The number of available tours and their timing varies with the seasons. The daily tour times for the Classic Tour are 8:00 AM, 10:30 AM, and 1:00 PM. The tour time for the Extended Zip Rappel Tour is 8:30 AM–this tour operates a maximum of 3 days per week.

Is There a Difference?

We’re often asked if there’s a difference in the experience from one tour time to another. While the weather may change between the early and late times, there’s no predictable change in the weather, especially in the rainforest, where the weather can change on a dime without warning.  Because the rappelling takes place in an area of the island that tends to be cooler than the rest, there’s no one time when the weather or the water is significantly cooler or warmer than the others.  The tour, with the exception of the guides and maybe the weather and traffic, remains the same from one tour time to the next.

The main reason we have the different tour times is so that you can arrange your itinerary however it’s best for you.  If you want to have a leisurely breakfast and maybe do something on the water before the wind kicks up, there’s a later time for you to do just that. If you have a luau the same day as your rappel tour, then the 8:00 or 10:30 times get you back with time to return to your hotel to shower and throw on your aloha wear.

No matter what time you want to take your tour, the total tour duration, from the time we meet you at the activity site from the time you are back at base camp is approximately 3 hours for the Classic Tour, and 4 to 4 1/2 hours for the Extended Tour.
