Unfortunate weather put a damper on the trip

Posted on: 2014/03/31

We were in Hawaii for our 25th anniversary and this was our first trip we had booked. My husband was really looking forward to the kayaking and I was really looking forward to the ziplining. Unfortunately because of the weather (nothing the staff could have done about it - they were really great people!), but we ended up kayaking down a mud river in pouring rain. Hiking through a muddy forest. Lunch was great (sun came out and beautiful spot), but we were super disappointed that there were only 2 ziplines and then the waterfall swim was more like a mud puddle splash. Unbelievably...the weather got worse and we hiked what seemed like 5 miles out of the wettest, muddiest conditions we've ever experienced and took an open boat ride back. Soaking wet, really cold with wind blowing on you from boat ride. Our whole group all tried to keep our spirits up, after all, we're in Hawaii, but you could tell that everyone just wanted it over by the end. An unfortunate shame...probably would have rated it a 4 if it had been a sunny day.
