Maui Canyon Adventures

Take the plunge into a Maui adventure on this 6.5-hour, small-group, rappelling excursion. Join no more than 8 participants as you ‘learn the ropes’ of this exciting sport, discovering how to descend down the numerous waterfalls and cliffs found along the famous road to Hana.

What You'll Do

Rappel Maui conducts daily guided tours at a dedicated rainforest valley location where adventurers 10 and older can experience the thrill of rappelling. No previous canyoneering or rappelling experience is necessary. Beginners welcome!

Tour Summary
You can either meet your guides in Central Maui or request hotel/resort pickup for an additional fee. The tour begins with a scenic ride down the famous Road to Hana to the rappelling site--a rainforest preserve about halfway to Hana. That's where you'll gear up in the harness, helmet, devices, flotation jacket, backpack and footwear we provide. You'll then take a short hike to your first rappel, a dry 60- to 100-foot jungle wall, where you'll listen to a briefing and watch a demonstration from one of your guides. After you practice on the dry side, you'll take a short walk to a 50-foot waterfall, take your rappel, and swim across a small pond. After that, you'll unleash your moves on a slightly trickier 30-foot waterfall. If weather conditions cause flooding in the streams and waterfalls, you'll use alternate rappel stations that are a safe distance from the watercourse. In between rappels you can enjoy the waterfall pools, take photos and enjoy the surrounding rainforest sights and sounds in this secluded preserve.

After a hike under the forest's green canopy back up to the top of the ridge, you'll enjoy a picnic lunch among forest and ocean views. Before boarding the van for the ride back to Central Maui, you can dry off and put on some dry clothes in the privacy of a changing room. The total time of the tour is approximately 6.5 hours, including round-trip transportation.

What's Included
Included in the tour is transportation, all rappelling gear (including footwear), picnic lunch, snacks & bottled water. Your guides will carry insect repellent wipes and hand sanitizing gel, but not sunscreen.

This was great. The guides and views were amazing. I would warn that this is not for the faint of heart. If you're adventurous, go for it!

My wife and me are over 50 and this was the best tour we did during our holiday in Maui. The tour guides were excellent and very competent. Thank you for a great time.
