Kauai 5-Line Zipline Adventure Tour

Redefine “family fun” when the whole crew learns about Kauai's rich cultural history and untouched flora between zips over rich, green valleys with a dramatic backdrop of mountain and ocean scenery on our 5-line Poipu zipline eco-adventure, including Hawaii’s only plank-launch zipline for an extra dose of thrills. It’s the perfect way to experience truly authentic Hawaii.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Step (safely!) outside your comfort zone and onto platforms with 200-foot drops, then reach speeds faster than 50 miles per hour. Come home from Kauai with something to brag about!
Get a running start and launch yourself from Hawaii’s only plank-launch zipline—a great adventure for kids (and grownups, too!).
See a valley filled with native Hawaiian Uluhe fern, view the unmistakable light green leaves of the Kukui, Hawaii’s state tree, and come to understand why it’s so important to us to conserve and protect this beautiful land.
Skyline Poipu was recently voted best Kauai Zipline tour and top activity on Kauai. Skyline Kauai was voted a Kauai Best Extreme Tour, Best Kauai Guided Tour Company, and Best Kauai Land Adventure Tour Company in 2017.
