Umauma Waterfall Rappel & River Tours

Want an extreme river adventure? Take a leap and rappel down a waterfall into the beautiful Umauma River. Afterwards, go for a swim or float, hike the valley, or just relax and enjoy Big Island’s natural beauty.

Make memories that will last a lifetime as you experience the coolest adventure in Hawaii. Start your rappel experience by rappelling 250 feet into the Umauma valley. The last 20 feet is a cave, so you will free rappel right into the Umauma River. But don’t worry, you will be fully equipped with a wetsuit, tobbies and all the necessary top of the line rappelling safety gear. Once you enter the river, you will relax as you float down the Umauma river to a 100 year old flume dam. This dam was made in 1910 and is still perfectly in-tact today. It’s level surface makes for an infinity pool like experience in the river! Next, you will boulder down a short distance to a natural stone slide formation where you will slide right into a large pool. On this tour, you will rappel down two waterfalls and even end with a jump (optional) at our private pond.

This tour will last approximately three and a half (3.5) hours
