Zipline Tours in Hawaii: The Biggest Travel Craze on the Islands

Zipline tours in Hawaii are perhaps the hottest travel craze on the islands right now.

The popular adrenaline-filled sport allows you to see Hawaii from another perspective…safely. Whether you want views of the rainforest canopies, the impressive canyons and volcanoes, or of spectacular tropical waterfalls, ziplines are a great way to really experience the islands.

What’s also great about ziplines is that they are not exclusive – anyone can do it. Whether you are young and seeking adventure, or a little bit older and are a little bit apprehensive, it really doesn’t matter.

Every zipline experience is operated by experienced and knowledgeable guides, and you are always in safe hands.

Each Hawaiian island has a zipline to offer the adventurous traveler.

From the Zipline Safari Tour in Kauai to zipping along the coastline of Oahu, there is something for everyone. And it doesn’t matter if you have never tried it before, anyone can do it.

So here are some of the best zipline tours in Hawaii:

Kauai Zipline Tours

Enjoy an action-packed adventure with Outfitters Kauai on the Kipu Zipline Safari Tour.

Not only do you get to zipline across the rainforest, past the Haupu Mountains and through the treetops, but you also get to kayak and walk across a suspension bridge. And the tour doesn’t include one, but two ziplines.

The second zip goes above water, so you can let go and fall into a beautifully clear waterfall pool.

Maui Zipline Tours

The Piiholo Ranch in upcountry Maui is full of fun zipline adventures, including the Treetop Zip Tour.

This tour includes a zipline trek with a choice of six or seven ziplines. When you take this tour, you can experience the longest side-by-side zipline in Hawaii, which is a massive mile-and-a-half long. This fantastic thrill ride will let you zipline across ranch lands, gulches, forests and the beautiful Mount Haleakala. One of the highlights of the tour sees you land in a pirate ship tree house.

The tour also has the longest in-the-trees zipline in Hawaii at 930 feet long.

Oahu Zipline Tours

See Oahu’s Windward coast from the sky by taking the Bay View Zipline tour with Go Zip Oahu.

It’s a 400-foot-long dual zipline and starts in a suspended tree house. Zip all the way over Kaneohe Bay side-by-side with a friend, so you can share the experience.

This is a great zipline for beginners and gives you an unforgettable view of Oahu’s coastline…if you can bear to look down.

Big Island Zipline Tours

The Big Island is famed for its rugged and volcanic landscape.

You can hike, walk, and cycle through it – and you can also see it by zipping at 25 mph across the canopy with KapohoKine Adventures. Take the Zipline through Paradise tour from Kona on the Big Island and get to ride on eight ziplines throughout the day.

From 160-foot-high you get to see 25 waterfalls, and take on the longest zipline in Hawaii – a massive 2,400 feet long.

Tips for Ziplining:

  • Wear appropriate clothing – including long sleeves and long trousers
  • Don’t wear flip flops. Wear comfortable, secure shoes or sneakers.
  • Make sure you wear and bring along sunscreen.
