Excellent zip lining company with attention to safety, friendly attentive staff, great location overlooking a beautiful canyon and river and 7 long cables. Great fun! I would absolutely do this again.

I had heard about the Big Island version of this and was glad to see a version of this in Kauai. Shorter trip, but the team members keep it entertaining with local lore and even provide recommendations for Kauai events, restaurants, and shopping.

The tour started with a 30 min van ride. We choose to ride with Sherri and Dustin (the sarcastic van). When I say "choose" I mean we beelined it to their van. They did NOT disappoint with the sarcasm. My mother, boyfriend and I were...More

The trip through the canals is really fun, especially I think if you had kids, it’s an easy pace. We usually like things that are a little more adrenaline packed but this was a nice change for our vacation, it kinda gave us a break...More
