Baby boomers, are you looking to add a little adventure to your beach vacation in Kauai? If so, spending the day on Kipu Falls Zipline Safari will satisfy your need to paddle, hike, zip and jump through Kauai’s mountainous scenery.
Alan and I arranged this excursion through Kauai Outfitters. We boarded a van at their Poipu Beach location, then traveled to Lihue, pausing along the way for a photo stop at Menehune Fish Pond.
After receiving instructions from our guides on paddling the two-person kayaks, we entered the Hule’ia River to practice. Then, our kayaking group proceeded two miles up the river passing beside thick stands of mangrove trees.
At our destination, guides stood on the riverbank to assist our exit from the kayaks. After a short hike through dense jungle accompanied by the sounds of birdcalls and crowing roosters, the group arrived at a cascading stream. Guests satisfied their inner Tarzan by swinging out over the water on ropes before dropping with a splash into the deep pool.
