Da Life Outdoors - Waterfall Rappel
This Kauai waterfall rappel lets you walk down two waterfalls that cascade down a cliff. The tour includes some time spent at the rappel training area, where you’ll get a rappel safety lesson and a practice run on a dry wall before heading out for your island adventure.
After a 15-minute nature hike along a private jungle trail next to the Hulei'a Wildlife Refuge, you’ll arrive at the first waterfall, the 30-foot Bamboo Falls. Then test your skills rappelling down the 60-foot Papakolea Falls.
