Rappel Maui. If the idea of walking backward down waterfalls appeals to you, this company stands ready, willing, and able to accommodate. Their friendly, knowledgeable guides encourage and assist you literally every step of the way. You must be at least 10 years old to participate, have a waist size between 22 and 48 inches, and weigh between 70 and 249 pounds. Rappelling is a fairly strenuous activity, so be prepared for a workout that includes hiking and swimming in addition to rappelling. The tour price of $219 includes all gear, lunch, bottled water, mosquito repellent, and transportation to and from the site from their pickup point in Central Maui. Nonrappellers can go along for $150, and can either swim or simply sit on a rock and take in the action. The pickup spot is at the intersections of highways 310 and 30. 10600 Hana Hwy., Haiku-Pauwela, Hawaii, 96708. 844/368–1017;
