Maui Zipline Activities

Maui Zipline Activities
Zipline tours have become all the rage and a must-do activity among outdoor enthusiasts who visit the lush Hawaiian island of Maui. After being harnessed and attached to a cable that is mounted on an incline, you'll fall for a long distance---while soaring past valleys and ocean vistas. Listed here are the three companies that offer these high-flying zipline tours on Maui.

Skyline Eco-Adventures

Skyline Eco-Adventures was the first company to build a zipline tour in Hawaii. Founded in 2002 by a father and son with a love for the great outdoors, Skyline Eco-Adventures now offers this experience at two locations on Maui. One site is situated near Haleakala National Park along the slopes of a giant volcano, and the other is found just above the Ka'anapali Resort and the beautiful valleys of Mount Kahalawai. Skyline Eco-Adventures is committed to preserving the environment and recently converted its operations to be carbon neutral.

Kapalua Adventure Center

Situated on the slopes of West Maui Mountains, Kapalua Adventure Center offers the chance to ride down nearly two miles of zipline cable. There's also a short warm-up course along with other adventurous outdoor activities like high ropes, a climbing wall and a huge swing. You'll have to cross a suspension bridge to get to the center (which has been dubbed the "Mountain Outpost") and ride the Zipperlifter, a chairlift-like form of transit, up 3,000 feet to the start of the course.

Piiholo Zipline

Piiholo Zipline is the most recent zipline tour to be built in Maui, and it also boasts the longest shared journey. Piiholo Zipline features two side-by-side cables so groups of up to four people can share the experience and exhilaration with each other. To begin your adventure, you'll have to cross a suspended bridge. The tour is positioned above Piiholo Ranch and the panoramic views include forests, ocean and nearby canyons. There's even a treehouse for visitors to relax in while watching the zipline action.
