Soar Over the Treetops on the Garden Island

Would you like to soar through the air like a bird high above the jungle canopy? If the answer is yes, then ziplining is for you! First you strap on a harness connected to a trolley that rides on the steel cable. Then jump off the platform and enjoy the ride of a lifetime!

Adding to the fun of Kauai zipline tours are suspension bridges, rappelling high above the ground, and various innovative new activities such as the Monster Swing and other experiences you will never forget.

Some tours follow up these exciting adventures with a visit to a mountain stream where you can finish your day with a refreshing dip in a swimming hole, perhaps beneath a waterfall!

Princeville Ranch Adventures offers ziplining, kayaking, and hiking tours on their 2,500 acres of private land on Kauai’s north shore. Trained guides provide a thorough orientation to ziplining and then continue to provide ongoing supervision as well as local knowledge of the region’s history, flora, and fauna.

David Carswell, who owns the company with his wife Denise, is a descendant of several generations of Princeville Ranch owners. Tours include the 4.5-hour Zip n’ Dip Expedition featuring 9 zipline crossings and a walk over a suspension bridge through the treetops and over a waterfall. Then you will take a short walk to a deep waterfall swimming pool and enjoy lunch and recreation as you swim or float on an inner tube.

The 4.5-hour Jungle Valley Adventure takes you on a kayak along Kalihiwai Stream through a rainforest valley. Then tie up and hike deeper into the ranch across stream crossings until you arrive at Uluhe Fern Ridge. Here you ride two 400-foot ziplines and explore the connecting bridge over the twin waterfall and swimming hole.

After zipping, you can jump, swim, float on inner tubes, enjoy a freshly prepared meal, and relax at the private swimming hole. Kayaking is beginner-level, and total kayaking time is approximately one hour round trip. Hiking is moderately strenuous, includes multiple stream crossings, and is approximately two hours round trip.

Kauai Backcountry Adventures offers a 3.5-hour Zipline Adventure Tour that begins with a guided educational drive through the backcountry to seven ziplines where you will glide over forests and valleys and then enjoy a swim and a picnic in a bamboo grove. This company also offers Tubing adventures.

Just Live! offers a 3.5-hour Zipline Treetop Tour with seven zipline runs up to 800 feet in length and 60 to 80 feet above the ground. There are also five bridge walks on a course set amidst 200-foot-tall Norfolk pine trees, mango, eucalyptus and bamboo.

The 2-hour Wikiwiki Zip Tour offers three zipline runs (two more than 700 feet long) and three bridge crossings, while the 4-hour Zipline Eco-Adventure Tour offers 3 ziplines, 3 bridges and rappelling (choose 50-foot or 100-foot platform). Highlights include a 60-foot Monster Swing and 60-foot rock climbing wall.

Outfitters Kauai offers a half-day Kaua‘i Zipline Trek that includes a series of ziplines as well as a hike on forested trails and swimming near waterfalls. The Kipu Zipline Safari begins with a two-mile kayak on the Huleia River and includes a hike to swimming holes and waterfalls and great views of Kipu Ranch featured in Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The Zipline Safari takes you on the new Keko Kai zipline course which includes their “impossibly long” tandem, center dismount zipline stretching more than a quarter mile which takes about 90 seconds and also includes the new Waterzip Zipline so you can cool off during the beautiful Hawaiian days.
