Owner description: Kauai's LONGEST zipline course is home to 3 of the 5 longest ziplines on Kauai. Featuring our 1/2 mile Waita Zip. Each of our lines average over 1,000' in length and have you Flying through the jungle, soaring above the forest and gliding across the water. We're also the only Zipline on Kauai that offers headfirst ziplining with our Flyin' Kauaian Harness! Located just 5 minutes from the major resorts of Poipu, Koloa Zipline is the closest of all activities to the South side of Kauai.

“Beautiful location with excellent guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Zipline Koloa's lines are located in the hills behind the abandoned sugar mill just east of Koloa and north of Poipu. The 8 lines are mostly all within the beautiful forests except for the last one which goes over some pastures of cows. Our guides were awesome! They worked well as a team, loved to joke around, and made everyone comfortable. Thanks Hilary, John, and Cal! I cant imagine the other zipline courses on the island being as picturesque as Zipline Koloa's. Also two of their lines are around half a mile long each. The only thing to be ready for (besides having a fun time) is to get some extra help if you are small. The two kids in our group who weighed about 80 pounds each had to ride tandem with a guide so they could make it completely across on two lines. Otherwise if you arent heavy enough on the two longer lines, the guides may have to rescue you with a rope to pull you in the last few feet. I would recommend this operation to anyone wanting to zipline on Kauai!

Aloha, and thank you for writing such a comprehensive review. Sometimes i sit on the benches at the top of the course and "take it all in", I'm glad you had a good time and enjoyed the beauty of the land.
I don't want to sound nitpicky of anything, however, i do believe it would be more accurate to say that our last line is 1/2 mile long, and our 4th line is 1/3 mile long... but whose counting?
Thanks again for letting us be part of your vacation!

“Fantastic day of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Our family of 5 (mom, dad, and 3 teenage boys) had a fantastic day ziplining. Staff was courteous and always attentive to our safety. The staff constantly checked our equipment for safety, which made me feel very comfortable having my kids do this activity. Would definitely recommend!

“Highlight of the Trip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

My wife and I had never ziplined before and we couldn't have picked a better place to do it for the first time. Amazing views, very professional, safe, entertaining staff. Our guides were awesome! 8 lines and each one is an experience all its own. The last line was a half mile ride! AMAZING. This was worth every penny and topped off your vacation. Mahalo Koloa Zipline. -Iowa Travelers
