ZIP-LINING COURSE
  • Line 1: After a short hike through a forest of eucalyptus trees, you'll arrive at the first zipline. 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 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 Indiana 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 rainforest; 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!

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?

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.

We booked an 8-line Zip course for the Ka'anapali location. You meet at the store front, then two of the guides (ours were Gavin and Bobo) drive you up the mountside in a 15-person van. The van ride up the mountain is about 20 mins one way. It is an EXTREMELY bumpy ride due to the rough terrain. Part of the experience I guess. You stop halfway to put on the gear and to store away your belongings. They also provide you with a small fannypack so that you can bring your phone/camera/other small things. Definitely wear closed toe shoes, there is a bit of hiking (easy hiking) involved as you go from zip line tower to zip line tower. Some of the zip line towers are connected, others require you to hike for a few minutes to the next tower. Our guides were funny, shared local restaurant knowledge with us, and overall provided a bit of comedic relief/entertainment. The zip line process is very safe and secure, I never felt nervous about my safety. Next time I'm trying the 11-line one!

My husband and I went on the 8 line zipline for our honeymoon. We had Jesse and Shawn and they were seriously amazing! They made the experience so fun. The road up to the ziplining was very very bumpy but nothing crazy, after that its all fun and walking to the different lines. Would definitely recommend Jesse and Shawn and this place

My husband and I chose the 8-line zip-line tour during our stay in Maui. This was our first time zip-lining, so we didn't really know what to expect. We were both a little nervous about it initially, but in the end we had so much fun! Our guides Bobo and Kevin were hilarious! They were cracking jokes the whole time, making our whole group feel at ease and getting us excited. They always prioritized safety, and they were there to send us off and catch us every step of the way. They also were very knowledgeable about the island and its history. Additionally, the staff at the main office was very friendly. You can tell that everyone enjoys what they're doing, which makes you more excited about the experience. The ziplining was over a valley with beautiful views of the island. With each line, you could see most of Ka'anapali, the ocean, and Lanai in the distance. Definitely wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, because the natural red dirt will get all over. You're also able to bring your phone/camera with you to capture all the views as well as some great action shots of the actual ziplining. Overall, it was a memorable experience, and we would definitely do it again!
