Maui Waterfalls Rappelling Adventure
Dave is definitely the man to be in charge. He has been on Maui since 2006, one of the first to bring canyoneering / rappelling to The Islands. He is well known for his expertise and his books—six survival and canyoneering / climbing books.
He has been a soldier, firefighter, paramedic, mountain guide and writer. He spent six years in the Air Force as an Arabic/Spanish linguist and cryptanalyst, then three years in the Army as an SF intelligence analyst, and three years in the Navy Reserve as a Marine Corps medic. He is a veteran of search and rescue operations and he has taught disaster response and paramedic systems in the Middle East, the Balkans and Caucusus. He has been a climbing guide since 1976, and he’s happy to be back on the rocks.
