Welina mai! My name is Charlie Cobb-Adams I am true native Hawaiian, a descendant from the forbidden island of Ni’ihau. I have spent many years exploring the backcountry of my beautiful island home and I want to share some of these hidden locations with special guests on this one-of-a-kind private adventure.

We have a one of a kind waterfall adventure that we do for all of our guests especially designed based on a persons activity level, and weather conditions. I will guide you through tropical jungles and lush forests to secluded streams, waterfalls and pools. See famous mountain peaks seen in movies. This amazing adventure is fun and exciting for the who family.

Totally unique experience after many years of visiting Kauai

We were a group of 6, mostly doctors, and it was a private trip with just us. Charlie is totally awesome, guides you on a very private tour into the jungle in areas no one else can access. He has built his own tracts down into the valleys where you can rappel and discover/climb secret waterfalls (which I guarantee no one else will be at). He is very experienced, it was thrilling but definitely safe if you listen and pay attention. He has some awesome search and rescue stories from teams he has led, and knows a lot about the island that no one else does. In many years of coming to Kauai, this was a totally unique and memorable experience, not a “Disneyland” group tour like many others!

Fantastic adventure. Just the right length. Had to deal with mosquitos and getting VERY wet so long sleeves are a must. The terrain was beautiful and Charlie the guide was knowledgeable and funny. I cannot recommend this enough.

Hawaiian Dundee was awesome. Had a great time trekking through the jungle, traversing waterfalls and crossing rivers. Not your normal tour - and so much better. If you're thinking about it - don't hesitate.

To be honest, my husband and I agree that we did not really know what to expect. While we expected a jeep tour and some hiking, we were treated to an Indiana Jones trek picking our way through the Kauai jungle. But Hawaiian Dundee Charlie did everything to make the day fun, doable and interesting I would encourage anyone to give it a try. Charlie is well versed in the history flora and fauna in the area. It was a real Kauai experience. We did see another tourist all day.

What an amazing adventure! We took our family (two adults, two kids/teens) on this hike to really get an authentic Kauai experience. Hawaii Dundee did not disappoint! We got an opportunity to explore amazing terrain. The highlight for all of us was swimming by a waterfall. We could not have asked for a better day, or a better person to lead us through it. Wear comfy shoes with some traction! My husband wore water shoes that had a good amount of traction that worked great for him. Our youngest wore crocs (which we all thought was a bad idea), but worked great for her. The other two of us were flipping between running shoes and water shoes with no traction. That was our bad! We made it work and Hawaii Dundee was of course incredibly patient as we changed, but just a pro tip from us. Don’t hesitate to book this day if you are looking for some adventure and fun!!!

This is NOT your typical touristy "hike to the waterfalls" tour, this is the BEST PRIVATE tour we have done on any of the islands! Our Guide, Charlie, was awesome and kept the tour very interesting and tailored it to our ability level which was perfect since we love to do real hiking versus your typical paved trail hiking lol! We loved it and will book all our future tours with Charlie! Best $ we've spent this whole time and on any of the island tours we've done throughout the years!

We trekked through the Jungle well off the "beaten path" and swam in some incredible waterfalls! We also got to learn about the history of the island and the uses of the various flora from our amazing guide!

This is one of the best experience that we have ever had! Charlie aka Hawaiian Dundee is the best in business. He teaches us everything about history, plants, and lots of tips about jungle adventure. He always finds the best waterfalls around and always let the guests enjoy the best time and never in a rush. We had a great time in the jungle and we literally enjoyed the beautiful waterfalls entirely without any other tourists around.

Charlie is a great guide. He is super friendly and helpful. We rely on him throughout the whole experience. He is a true Hawaiian and is deeply knowledgeable about the Hawaiian history and culture. He personalizes this trip just for you and your group. He only takes one tour a day so that you will never feel rushed.In this tour, he will take you on his own private 4x4 vehicle to explore a tropical rainforest and waterfalls that you would otherwise have no access to. The area that you are going to explore is privately owned so no other tourists are allowed. You won't encounter other people on the trail or in the waterfalls. Please do not expose the location of this tour. Trespassing is strictly forbidden.The hiking itself is the difficult part. The trail is steep at many portions. You will need to climb on a slope with help of ropes. You will find yourself crossing the rapids over some rocks, and walking down a small waterfall. Non-slip shoes are a must. Your shoes and clothes will get muddy and dirty. Charlie provides two dry bags that you can put your own backpacks in them. He is indeed very thoughtful;One thing you must know is the abundance of mosquitos. Kauai is the most rainy island and you are hiking in the middle of its rainforest. Mosquitos are everywhere and they will not leave you alone. Some days are better than others but be certain to know that mosquitoes are ubiquitous in this experience. We are from an urban area so not too used to be around mosquitos. I bought a bottle of eucalyptus oil and uses it generously. We still got tons of mosquitos bites. That's the only reason that the tour got a four stars instead of a five starts. Charlie is awesome and he deserves the best review. The missing star is due to mosquitos and not him. If I would do this again, I would definitely wear long pants to have my legs better protected.The hiking part is adjustable. He has a longer route that he would take us. But my daughter is breaking down due to the mosquitos. So, he offered us a short cut to the main waterfall. The main waterfall is private. You are not allowed to get to it by yourself. Only Charlie can get you there. It is about 30 foot tall. It is quite wide, like around 80 foot. It is absolutely gorgeous. It is the most beautiful waterfall I have seen in Kauai. He said the deepest point is about 10 feet deep. You are free to swim in the waterfall pond but please make sure you are a good swimmer. We are not very good swimmer so we skip the swimming part, but I trek to the side of the waterfall through the rocks around the pond, and it was fun. You can stay in the waterfall as long as you want as Charlie delights in personalizing the trip to your liking.After you are done with the main waterfall, Charlie guide you back to the 4x4 and get you back to the base, and that's it. Throughout the trip, he will tell you things about the rainforest, the plants and the animals, and anything you would like to know about Kauai.Charlie is such a gentle giant you will absolutely love interacting with him. He is fully vaccinated and boosted. He would even show you his vaccination card without being asked. He takes pictures and videos throughout the whole trip so you don't need to worry about taking pictures yourself. You certainly don't want to drop your cell phone into the mud or into the water. He will send you a link to download the pictures and videos after the trip.I hope this will give you an overview of the experience. Charlie does not have much space to describe the trip on the website so he is hoping that we all help him out this way.
