  • Times are approximate and will be confirmed at time of booking confirmation.
  • Line 1: After a short hike through a forest of eucalyptus trees, you'll arrive at the first zipline of the tour.  Your expert guides will help you clip in, and then off you go sailing over a massive ravine more than 50 feet below you're dangling feet. Ten seconds later, you'll gracefully land on the platform more than 150 feet from your starting point. The lines get faster, and longer from this point forward! 
  • Line 2: This line is known for its 70-foot cliff-like drop-off. Our wooden platform is securely fastened to the edge of the cliff where you'll step off from into thin air. This line carries you over a deep ravine where you might spot some endangered Ama'u ferns.  
  • Line 3: This line is known for its plank-like launching platform that dangles over a huge valley. If it isn't too wet, your guide may let you take a running start for this line to pick up some real speed. After a brief free-fall, the line catches you and zips you across a valley filled with bright orange lichen, rich green ferns, and lush grass. 
  • Line 4: This line is over a football field long, and sends you directly through the valley you zipped over on line 3. Valley walls will tower above you on either side as you fly just above the valley floor. 
  • Swinging Bridge: Since we couldn't build a zip-line uphill, we found another way to get back to the other side of Pahakuokala Gulch - an Indian Jones-style swinging bridge!  Swinging 80 feet above the valley floor, this bouncy bridge will give you a chance to really get a good look at the beautiful nature around you. Below the bridge is an area where our staff, and many volunteers have planted thousands of trees and native plants. You'll notice the native wildlife returning to the area.
  • Line 5: As you approach the beginning of the line, you'll notice stunning views of Maui's North Shore framed by Haleakala's subtropical rain forest; this line is one of our favorites. We named the line after Hawaii's fastest bird - the Io, for a reason. You'll accelerate from 0 - 45+ mph in just a few seconds on this pendulum style zip-line. This line will give you a story to tell, and an experience to remember. We look forward to seeing you soon!
After your zip-line tour, spend time exploring Upcountry Maui. Hike in Haleakala National Park, tour a lavender or coffee farm, taste locally distilled Ocean Vodka, visit local art galleries, and sip pineapple wine. You'll go home with a real Hawaiian vacation story to tell!

No, but they tend to be more comfortable when wearing a harness and are recommended.

Can I bring my camera/phone?
Yes, you may bring your camera/phone along to snap photos along the way. Your guides will also take many photos of you zipping. All the pictures from your tour will be available for $15. You can also rent a Go-Pro camera.

How good of shape do I need to be in?
Ziplining isn't strenuous, but you need to be able to hike about 1/2 mile and climb steps. We have had people from age 10 to 100 do the course without problems.

Customers with serious neck, back, or joint injuries or chronic heart problems should use their own discretion about their capabilities to safely participate in this activity. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that anyone with who has had recent surgery, especially on ankles, knees or their back, not participate in this tour. Although we try to always make customers comfortable both physically and mentally, some degree of impact on joints or some degree of customer anxiety about zipping is unavoidable.

Customers MUST weigh between 80 & 260 lbs. This Policy is STRICTLY ENFORCED, for your own safety. All participants will be weighed at check in and those that do not comply will not be allowed to zip and no refunds will be issued.

Is ziplining safe?
Safety is our top priority, and it shows. Over 3 million zipline crossings - we've set the industry standard in zip lining safety. All equipment is tested to hold at least 5,000 lbs. Each zipline has a minimum breaking strength of over 26,000 lbs.

Sophisticated engineering
From concept to design to installation, we work closely with Glynn Geotechnical Engineering to develop our zipline courses. Glynn is an internationally recognized firm, licensed in 46 States for structural and geotechnical engineering work, and recognized as the leader in the Aerial Adventure engineering industry.

Thoroughly trained guides
We believe that your safety starts with guides that have a comprehensive understanding of the ziplining industry and safety best practices.Each of our guides go through an 80-hour training process, and a period of ?assistant guiding??a time where ?junior? guides are paired up with more experienced guides to get on-course training and experience. The industry standard for this process is a short 40-hour training process.

Daily course inspections, yearly professional inspections
Every day, our trained staff thoroughly inspects all the ziplines, platforms, trails, and equipment of each course. And at least once a year an accredited ACCT inspector conducts a comprehensive review of each course, equipment, and all current practices.

Do my parents or guardian have to zip with me if I am under age 18?
Kids 15-17 years old need an adult signature on their waiver but can take part in our tours without an adult in their group on tour EXCEPT for Ka'anapali Zip n' Dip tours! 
Example: 15 & 16 year old friends can zip without a parent or adult in their party as long as they have an adult sign the waiver for them at check-in first.Kids 14 years and younger need to have an adult on tour with them and an adult must sign the waiver for each child. The adult can be a parent, relative, or friend and must be 18 years or older.
Example: 14 & 17 year old siblings need an adult or 18 year old to zip as part of their group, in addition to having an adult sign the waiver for them.  (Note if it were just the 17 year old, they could go with just an adult signature on their waiver - but because they have a 14 year old in the group they also need an adult to zip as part of their group)
Ka'anapali Zip n' Dip tours: Requires 1 adult to participate with each party regardless of the age of the minors.
Example: Jones party of 2 (15 and 16 year old's) cannot go on 4 line Zip n' Dip without their 18 year old sibling or another adult.

Nella and Ryan were fantastic guides. They made us all feel confident and safe and made sure we had a great time. Beautiful way to spend a morning on Maui! Will recommend to our friends.

Our family was wrapping up our Spring Break trip with a zip line adventure. Tour guides Frank and Ryan were the best! Very funny guys with a lot of knowledge on zip lining. They made the day fun because of their personalities. It helped that our group was not a bunch of stiffs. Uncle George playing some Ziggy Marley "Beach in Hawaii" on the ride down was awesome. It's a must do, and we will be back next time we are in Maui!

My friends and I had the best time zip lining with Haleakala Sunrise Bike & Zip. It was my first time and I was very concerned about the whole thing but our guides Adam and Andre were so nice and explained everything in detail that I was able to relax and had the best time! Adam and Andre were very helpful, funny and professional. They helped us pose for some cool action shots! Adam & Andre you are the best! The ocean and forest views were amazing! We did the 8 zip line. Great choice. It must when in Maui.

A big mahalo to Annabelle and Kelly for making me feel comfortable and safe during our tour. I'm extremely afraid of heights and knowing I had experienced guides helped quite a bit. They made the tour enjoyable for me! P.S. the resident pig a cute twist to the morning.
