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 best of the two as there are more ziplines and they are longer.For more
