This 1.5-2 hour guided tour takes place on our private property that overlooks the Hule’ia watershed and Ha’upu Mountain range and has two secret waterfalls. A quick quarter mile (one way) hike is a great opportunity to visit two secluded waterfalls in the Lihue area. The 30’ Bamboo Falls is a great spot for pictures, and the 60’ Papakolea Falls offers the exciting opportunity to swim in, and climb behind a cascading waterfall!

Please note that on this hike, we will make several stream crossings, and encounter ankle-deep mud.


  • Transportation from Da Life Outdoor Gear to the secluded waterfalls!
  • Walking sticks and water.


  • Towel, Bug Spray and Sunscreen.
  • Water Shoes. The hike is muddy, and the bottom of the waterfall pool is rocky, so plan on wearing shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy and wet. Water shoes work well for both hiking and swimming portions of the tour.
