Traveler Tips

I would recommend wearing leggings if possible as it can be slippery and I was very glad I had.
I recommend this activity if you're looking for something adventurous to do and don't forget to put on some bug spray in addition to sunblock!

Fantastic start to our trip
Lindsay_C, Mar 2023
Did this excursion with my 11 year old son. Our guides Abbie and Jeffrey were amazing. Most of our group was new to rappelling. They provided great instructions and support to make everyone in our group feel comfortable and we’re amazing cheerleaders the entire time. They were also very personable to chat with throughout our time. We did three rappels. The first was more of a warm up along the side of a short cliff that was angled. The second was our favorite. It was the largest and went alongside a waterfall in which you jumped into a pool or water at the end. The final one was a bit shorter just more technical going directly in the waterfall and landing in a pool of water again at the end. Brace yourself because the water is cold! The scenery is beautiful along the way for lots of good picture. The hardest part might have been the hike back to the top after we we’re done. Very steep with lots of stairs but didn’t take too long (~10 min). My son was a bit timid at first but very much enjoyed the experience. Would highly recommend!
Best adventure on the island

This is our 7th trip to Maui, and our first Rappel experience. Alena and Gabbie are fabulous instructors, they instilled the confidence we (me, my husband and 14 year old son) needed to brave the rappel over three separate drops. It was the most terrifying yet thrilling thing we have ever done, and this won’t be our last rappelling adventure.
Wet adventure
MaryKate_J, Jan 2023
The two guides were very personable and encouraged us to venture into the waterfalls and jump. There were also beautiful peacocks and ducks on the route. 10/10 would do again
Most fun adventure on Maui

Maui Waterfalls!!
Amy_B, Jan 2023
A unique and fun experience. This is the 2nd time we did this as a family and enjoyed it just as much the second time. Great for kids and adults alike. Our guides Naomi and Sam were awesome!!
Guillaume_G, Jan 2023
very pleasant welcome, trustworthy and fun professionals. a sumptuous place… in my opinion, the activity is superb and it is a good thing to do! I would have liked 3 waterfall and not 2 because it is a bit fast or more walking. I'm happy and I recommend
Crazy kind of fun!
Erika_F, Dec 2022
This was amazing!! Abby & Sam were awesome, very knowledgeable and great at explaining what to do and where to go. As one of the other ladies in our tour said - it’s definitely a crazy kind of fun! I was nervous at first but it was so worth it and I’d love to go back!
A Fun Experience!

Great fun and experience. Total beginners and we survived :) Abbie and Kopheka were amazing and super patient, cheering all of us on through each of the rappels.
Do it

My wife and I had a blast. It's a beautiful place and a one of a kind experience. Our guides were helpful and added to the day.
Must do!!

Our guide Abbie was amazing!!! My 10 year old got really nervous and Abbie got her through the entire thing with such ease. She is so good with kids and made our experience amazing!!! One of the most memorable things we did in Maui!!
Amazing experience

Sam and Abbie were amazing! It was so cool to run into a girl from my hometown all the way in Maui. Both girls helped calm nerves and helped through the entire process. They were awesome!

Sam and Abbie were amazing. They educated us and kept everything smooth. We felt safe with these young ladies. The rappelling is incredible. The hike back was brutal. Worth the soreness the next day!
Incredible waterfalls
Cherise_L, Sep 2022
Ropheka and Clint were very helpful for us first timers! Would definitely do this again ! Stop by the shop nearby for essentials oils and handmade products. May meet a peacock walking thru the shop! Great day and unforgettable adventure!
Not for me
Melanie_H, Sep 2022
Other family members enjoyed the experience, but I am too old and only made it down the first trek and part way down the second
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Aloha Melanie, Sorry to hear you were not able to complete the tour. As much as we want folks from every walk of life to experience our us, it's just not suited for everyone. We do hope you enjoyed the rest of your time on Maui!
Don’t think twice, JUST BOOK IT!
Manuel_V, Sep 2022
Loved everything about this activity! If you’re debating weather to do it or not, DO IT! My husband had the time of his life! I am still learning how to swim and did awesome thanks to how much Sam and Naomi hyped me up and gave me the confidence boost i needed. S & N were so kind and so full of energy they made our time w them very fun and enjoyable. We loved that we felt very safe w the gear we got and all the safety procedures. So glad they started us off with a smaller cliff and then leveled up from there. enjoyed the whole experience. And we are very grateful our guides were Naomi and Sam. Such great girls 💕
Great people, great experience!

This is an AMAZING experience! You are repelling off 3 ledges - 1 “practice” and 2 waterfalls. These are on private property and you are not going to be able to experience these on your own or just walk in. The falls are beautiful and our guides say it is very rare for them to never have any water. For the reviews complaining about too strong… we went when the falls were “moderate” according to the guides. At that level the water does pound on you! Still incredibly fun and a life experience. Guides were very concerned about safety and great at explaining how to repel. We also got to swim in the pond under the falls which was amazing! On a personal note Repel Maui went far above and beyond. I lost my cell phone and their ops manager found it and many people worked to get it returned to me in less than 24 hours - including on a Saturday! These people are great to work with. You can trust these people because I worked with and talked to 5 different people from booking to getting my phone back. All 100% professional and went above and beyond!
The guides were great!...
Alison_S, Aug 2022
The guides were great! They knew what they were doing and I was never nervous as they guided me down the amazing, secluded waterfalls.
Cool experience
Ilyse_R, Aug 2022
We loved this excursion! Our guides, Rapheka and Abbie were awesome! The whole experience from start to finish was so much fun. I wish there was one more rappel / 4 hour tour instead of 3 hours.
Arthur_D, Aug 2022
Guides were best I’ve ever had. Made the trip. Plus rappelling was so fun in the waterfalls! Would definitely recommend. Plus had some swim time in postcard lagoons
