It's difficult to explain how fun it is. I love being in the tall eucalyptus trees and traversing over mountain stream gorges.

Being afraid of heights and making myself go on a zipline in 2008 despite the fear (I closed my eyes and jumped off the platform backwards!) gives a real perspective when watching someone gripped with fear of heights & jumping. We had a gal on this trip that was terrified of the last zip jump. My heart went out to her as I KNOW that fear! It took well over 5 minutes and but she did it. Talk about a cheering section!

The guides on our trip, Aka and Kalani were totally awesome. They should have their own comic act! Engaging, informative and funny!

Screaming is one of the most fun parts of the zip experience. Joking around, laughing, taking photos of each other, the comradery..... It's kind of an 'outward bound' experience.

I don't go zip lining for the people connections but inevitably it's part of the real joy of what I come away with. I believe the Skyline Eco-adventures Haleakala zipline has the longest last zip on the island. Or maybe it's the fastest. All I know is it is a REAL screamer and we were all ready to do it again!

My husband and I just returned from Maui where we decided to try zip-lining for the first time. We did it on the actual day of our 20th anniversary! Neither of us had zipped before and we are late-40's/early 50s.

We loved it, and unless you are truly, truly, mortally petrified by the idea, so will you!

As many of the reviews state, this is a perfect place to do your first zip. The guides and staff are very attuned to safety and are extremely 'alert' (they can also apparently smell fear since they were 2 of the funniest people alive!). They are safety first but it is so fun and they are so funny - I kinda miss them! Hugs to you Kalani and Kua (and to Aloha A at the front desk and thanks Aloha for spelling the names for me)! Very professional, kind and i may have mentioned, funny!! The zip we did in the crater had 5 lines - which start you out with the "bunny zip line" - i.e., a small one to ease you into it and build confidence. Then they build up to the "holy crapstorm, Batman" line which is the longest, highest and yes, scary but super fun one!!!!!

After gaining confidence on the first few lines, I was truly able to look around and enjoy the scenery and look down without worry. The day was somewhat cloudy and foggy when we arrived but it cleared up for the zipping. I actually preferred it not being super sunny since zipping through the mist really gave it a 'rain forest' feel.

My main concern before going (besides the event itself, of course) was a slightly bothersome knee (i am very active and work out but it sometimes 'acts up' - not bad enough to warrant any real medical attention but just 'old lady knee'). I did mark this on my form in the beginning and they were able to help me and advise me on the best ways do this to avoid too much impact. It was awesome, so don't let that stop you - just be honest.

I also like the Eco aspect very much. They teach you a lot about the ecosystem and birds and they are helping to build the area for the future. Not too shabby...

All and all - this was fantastic! I always wanted to try it and am so glad we did! My husband also loved it and he is not super fond of heights. I'm sure it won't be our last zip but I am really glad we did our first here. It was the perfect way to start.

We went on our way down from haleakala, hoping to jump on the first tour in the morning. Luckily we were able to get some spots with the best guides Kevin and Kua. Couldn't have been any better. Everyone was great and the lines were perfect for first timers!

This was one of the most excellent mornings of the trip! The guides Aka and Kamalei were fun and very safe! They taught history and the connection to the surrounding area and the species that had and do inhabit the area! All the while cracking jokes and remaining professional! Awesome outstanding trip! I plan to go again!! So recommend!!

If you're afraid of heights like I am, no worries as this adventure was the most fun we've had on the island so far. Andrew and Kam were very professional, cautious, funny, and calming the entire time. By the time we got to our third zip, I www volunteering to go first. The bridge was nerve wrecking (don't look down) but it was an amazing experience. If you're going to do the sunrise tour, I suggest planning this the same day because of the two activities being close in proximity to one another. A must do!!
