Ohana Rappel

Rappelling a waterfall

This guided rappel tour is a big hit with kids and adults alike! We’ll fit you with rappelling gear, given a detailed rappel safety lesson, and then practice run on the dry wall to test out your new skills. Follow by a 15 minutes hike to the secluded Bamboo falls where you will rappel a 30’ wall of dancing water. Next, hike to the 60’ Papakolea Falls where you can swim and climb behind a cascading waterfall. The tour ends with a picnic-style meal overlooking the scenic Hule’ia Watershed and Ha’upu Mountain range before shuttled back to Da Life Outdoor Gear shop.
