Kihei Beach Bums - Privately Owned Vacation Condo Rental


   Maui Books


If you want to have some adrenaline inducing, high-flying fun on your Maui vacation experience, try a zipline tour. The first zipline tour in the United States was started right here in Maui on the slopes of Haleakala in 2002. Since then the number of tour operators has grown and there are no less than 6 zipline tours you can take on Maui today. Over a million people have safely zipped on Maui and that's just with one of the tour operators!

A zipline tour offers a unique way to see Maui, the surrounding ocean and islands. All tours offer a blend of adventure sprinkled with information about Hawaiian culture, plant and animal life. If you've never experienced ziplining, its a real treat. We've been on all but one tour and have enjoyed them all.

Listed below in order of distance from the condo are the current zipline tour operators. We suggest you review each of their websites to learn more about the tours they offer. Then contact them in advance to book your tour. Don't wait until you arrive as you may not be able to make a reservation. One other tip - try to book the first tour of the day as you'll have less chance of getting wet.

  • Skyline Eco Adventures is the oldest in Maui. They offer two tours - one on the slopes of Haleakala and the other on the slopes of the West Maui mountains above Kaanapali and Lahaina. We like the Kaanapali tour the best of the two as there are more ziplines and they are longer.For more information call (808) 878-8400 or see their website or Facebook page.

  • Kapalua Adventure Ziplines is located in Kapalua at the north west end of Maui. There are many differant tours offered by the company, all above the pineapple fields of the West Maui Mountains.
