“Not as scary as it sounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2009

This zipline is a 2 hour tour on Haleakala, not the 4 hour one in West Maui. We loved our tour guides and we loved the drive up the volcano, it was gorgeous. I'm a little afraid of heights, but it was so much fun. They start you out on a few shorter ones and the last 2 are the highest, longest, and fastest. You have to do this!

“Great fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2009

We had a lot of fun at the Ka'anapali Zipline adventure. We were a group of 8 including two 17 yr olds and two 13 yr olds. None of us had ever Zipped before. We really enjoyed the Skyline Staff from the guy who checked us in at the fairway shops, to our driver, and especially our guides Ryan and Kali. They were all very friendly, entertaining, and comical. We even enjoyed the bumpy van ride to the Zip areas. Lunch was also very good, and in fact, we went and ate at Celantros that night after having their lunch on the tour. The price for the tour is a little steep, but an overall good time. Be prepared to be weighed when you arrive, and wear old shoes and clothes cause it was very dusty and we were all covered in red dust at the end of the day, but that was part of the adventure. It just gave us an excuse to jump into the ocean once back at the hotel. For me personally, it was just the perfect thrill level, but for some of the more thrill seekers in our group it was not thrilling enough. They would have liked to have Zipped faster and higher. But once again for me, a middle age mom who doesn't like roller coasters, it was perfect. One more note, the more you weigh the faster you will Zip. The winds also have alot to do with the Zip speeds and that varied a lot during the day. Our teenagers really enjoyed it too, and really enjoyed our guides and the rest of the skyline staff. They couldn't wait to have their pictures taken with our guides....a Kali and Ryan sandwich as they put it. Can't say enough about their entertaining sense of humor, they were so fun! Equally as fun as the actual zipping!

“A lot of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

We did the Haleakala tour. None in my party had ever ziplined before but we had heard about it and were very excited. We met at the little office on the way up to the volcano and got our helmets and harnesses on with the help of our 2 guides. We got a quick safety lesson and then we hiked to the ziplines for about 5 minutes. The ziplines progress from short to long, so it was a great introductory experience. Along each zipline, the guides explained about birds and plant life that were indigenious to Hawaii. In addition to the 5 ziplines, there is also a suspension bridge that you walk over and was actually more enjoyable than I expected. The last zipline is pretty high up and long and they let you just ride on it back and forth for a little bit until they get you down with a ladder. It was nice because you really got to look down and around at everything. We then got in van and drove a short distance back up to the office.

The guides we had were entertaining, good-humored, and made you feel comfortable. It was a fun time! My only qualm would be that it can be a little tricky at first on learning to steer so sometimes you started thinking more about steering yourself in straight than taking the thrill all in.

“Kaanapali Zipline tour - AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2009

It is no wonder why so many people say this was the highlilght of their vacation. you can snorkel, scuba, snuba, sail, hike, eat, whatever... this is an ADVENTURE! I can see almost anyone being afraid of a zipline, but the guides are amazing. They remove the fear an replace it with humor and compassion for those who need it.

Our guides were Bryan (a Twitter Junkie) and Casey. There were awesome! I love those guys, tey really made the trip special. "Remember - Safety third!!" was their motto, but I assue yu safety is their top priority. Both class acts to be sure. The views of the ocean and mountains combined with the rush of the moment and the excellent tour guides make this a MUST DO. Trust me, call now and book your spot - there is a huge waiting list and for a great reason!

“Great time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

My husband, 2 teenage daughters and I enjoyed the day going to the summit of Haleakala, taking a little hike intot the crater, and ziplining. It was soooo much fun! None of us has ever done anything like this, and we all had such a good time! Everyone in the group that was with us was inexperienced, and seemed to be comfortable with this after being well coached by the 2 leaders, Mike and Brad(?). We took the 3 pm. tour, and the weather was nice. We wore long pants and fleece jackets and were comfortable. I would have been chilly in shorts. The higer altitude makes a big difference in temperature. We also wore tennis shoes/hiking shoes. They got dusty, but they rinsed off just fine. The best experience is the final zip!! Fun!
