Zipline Above Tropical Maui

December 9, 2013 by

Maui Zipline

Couples can zip next to each other at the same time.

Helicopter tours provide stunning views of Maui, but more and more families are enjoying a family-friendly zipline course that zips above a lush landscape, swaying palms, and offers a thrill of adventure along with the majestic views.

The tour takes about 1.5 – 2 hours plus the time for check-in, orientation and training.

Fun for the whole family.

About the Maui Zipline Tour

The Maui Zipline Tour starts with a short walk along a well-maintained path to the observation platform. With no rigorous hiking involved just about everyone can enjoy this tour, however everyone taking part must be able to climb 4 flights of stairs.

Ziplines are situated side-by-side so parents/children/couples can zip next to each other at the same time with every guest (including the kids) having their own equipment and zipline.

If you’ve never tried this before, you don’t have to worry about it. Trained guides fit each person with state-of-the art equipment and maneuver you into the course with a training session where everyone has the chance to practice and become familiar with the equipment and techniques before heading out on the tour.

In all, they have five side-by-side ziplines which range from 300 to 900 feet. The zipline course is designed so it doesn’t require “hand braking” to slow yourself down so you can sit back and enjoy the view and the wind in your face without a worry.

Tours run rain or shine but close if there is a threat of lightning or high winds in the area. If your tour has to be cancelled due to weather, it can either be rebooked or refunded. For those who don’t want to try the ride, there’s no charge for walk-along guests. If you prefer, you can watch from the grounds or from their treehouse which overlooks the tropical lagoon.

If you’re ready to zip above Maui, reservations are recommended to guarantee a specific time and can be made online or by phone at 808-633-2464. Maui Zipline is located at Maui Tropical Plantation in Wailuku, Maui, Hawaii.
