About the Rappel Maui Tour
What is rappelling? It's a practice used in the outdoor adventure sport of canyoneering to explore vertical terrain using fixed or anchored ropes and other equipment. It's often used by climbers looking for a quick and safe way to descend a route. We've modified the sport to make an exciting and eco-friendly way to enjoy the tropical rain forest of East Maui. The Classic Tour includes three rappels; the Extended Tour includes four or more rappel events, and you can opt in for some harnessed climbing if you like. You can learn more about each tour here.
