Owner description: Outfitters Kauai has been making vacations awesome since 1988! Offering you a wide range of activities, including HAWAII’S LONGEST ZIPLINE; Exciting Ocean and River Kayak Tours; Waimea Canyon Downhill Biking Tours; SUP Tours; along with hiking and swimming options for many of our guided adventures. Zipline Tours: On May 1, 2017, Outfitters Kauai launched their newest additions... the 3/4 mile long FlyLine Kauai Zipline, and the Kipu Ranch Visitor Welcome Center. The result is improved and reconfigured Zipline Tour packages, and a new, convenient check-in location. Each zipline tour is unique as our lines vary by size, skill-level, and terrain. Fly with us over lush valleys, tumbling waterfalls and forest canopies — landscapes made famous by movies like Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Indiana Jones. Kayak Tours: If you want to explore the secret beaches and hidden waterfalls of Kauai, Hawaii, look no further than our kayak tours. Outfitters Kauai offers both ocean and river kayaking. Each tour is unique and combines kayaking with additional activities like hiking, snorkeling, swimming, and wildlife viewing. See the famed Na Pali Cliffs, or take a Poipu Whale Watch tour (seasonal). Paddle-Boarding Tours: We invite you to take a standup paddle along a tranquil jungle stream, ringed by the majestic Hau’pu Mountains. The adventure starts with a quick SUP lesson, then you’ll be fitted with a paddle and board that is just the right fit. Outfitters Kauai provides paddlers with top-quality equipment, so you can paddle with ease and get the most out of your adventure. Downhill Bike Tours: Our bike tour takes you alongside what is called “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” at 3,600 feet on the west side of Kauai. As you wind your way down this geological wonder, you will enjoy panoramic views of crested buttes, amazing waterfalls, rugged crags and deep valley gorges. From the main lookout point, there are dramatic views of Kauai’s lush interior and dazzling ocean coast. Think of this as a nature walk on two wheels, complete with refreshments and information about the culture, history and folklore of Kauai.

“Excellent and fun day!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

My wife and I took the 6 hour tour on a recent vacation and were extremely pleased with our choice. The guides were friendly and enjoyable and you could tell they loved their work, especially Muppy! The road on the ranch was rough and there is a bit of hiking involved, neither of which is a big deal. The scenery is fantastic, zip lines were fast, long and varied. Trust falls, tandem zips, upside-down...and the end of the day was jumping into a swimming hole from platforms or another short zip line. My in-laws took a different company and they weren't nearly as happy. This is a more personal experience (13 people in our group) where you don't feel like cattle being herded around. Highly recommend!

“Zip line”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

In Nov 2013 I took my family (wife and two girls 15&11yo) to Kauai. It was just fabulous. while we were there we had the good fortune to book a half day zip line tour with Outfitters. Trestan and Brian were our guides and they made a fabulous day even better.. we felt safe and welcome. Even my wife who doesn't have much of an need for adrenaline had a wonderful day.

Everything went to plan. no nasty surprises. do take the bug spray because the mosquitoes can become very attached. would choose outfitters again in a heartbeat to do any adventure trip.

“Awesome time with local guides and amazing experience in breathtaking nature of Kipu Ranch”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

My husband and I with another couple planned this Zipline adventure months in advance. We were a bit late to the meeting office place, but staff was gracious enough to wait for us for 10-15 minutes. Our guides were Chelsie and Lucky initially, later Juan helped us out as well at a later time too. Chelsie and Lucky were very knowledgeable and fun, telling us stories of the local land and had great answers to all our questions. We felt safe on the zipline with their guidance and support. It was an amazing experience to hang down the line and flying through the air! And the hidden waterfall was so much fun, we each jumped in several times. We got great pictures of the ranch and the zipline and even better memories of both. Thank you Chelsie, Lucky and Juan. You made our zipline experience through Kipu Ranch greatly fun and special!

“kipu tour great...bathrooms disgusting”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We enjoyed our 8 hour kipu safari tour, however the outhouses at the two stops were unusable. Toilet paper and urine all over the place. Obviously the tank had not been cleaned out in some time. When we called to see if there were bathrooms, we were told there were bathroom facilities all along the way. Perhaps they meant the "facilitrees"?

Aloha Luvkauai2013,
Mahalo for the taking time to review. I am happy you enjoyed the Kipu Safari. I apologize for the condition of the outhouses. Although they are furnished by a contract company, it is our responsibility to make sure they are keeping up with their services. Thanks to your comments we are increasing our check ups of each unit. Mahalo once again and we hope to see you next time you visit Kauai.
