Plan an adventurous day and take your family and friends on one of Maui’s amazing ziplining tours!
Without a doubt, ziplining has easily become one of the most popular activities to do in Hawaiʻi, and will definitely be an experience that everyone will remember for years to come.
If you live on Maui, you can check out a Maui ziplining tour anytime you wish (residents should ask about kamaʻāina discounts), but for those traveling from off-island locations, make sure to book this Maui activity before arriving on island. These tours definitely book up quick, so plan ahead!
Kāʻanapali Zip n’ Dip Tours
Offered only through Skyline Eco-Adventures, the Maui Zip n’ Dip Tour is the newest craze in Hawaiʻi ziplining. Guests have two options to choose from when planning their Kāʻanapali Zip n’ Dip Tour.
The first tour is a three-hour, four-line adventure where guests can explore three new lines and finally reach the fourth line Zip n’ Splash, where they can spend approximately 45 minutes swimming, splashing and Stand Up Paddleboarding in a fresh water pool.
The second option is a 4.5-hour tour with a brand new nine-line zip tour, where guests will soar through eight separate ziplines, and finally reach the ninth Zip n’ Splash, ending with 45 minutes of freshwater fun.
Skyline Eco-Adventures was voted No. 1 Hawaiʻi Zipline Tour in 2014 by many popular travel media publications, including TripAdvisor. This is a great activity for families with kids and for the adults that are ready to play while checking out breathtaking views of the Island of Maui.
Located in Olinda, guests can check out the Upcountry scenery from the Piʻiholo Ranch. For over seven generations, this Maui cattle ranch has been operated by the Baldwin family.
