Waterfall Hike & Zip Tour

You’ll be at risk for being almost too delighted as Hike Maui leads you through lush landscapes to two waterfalls off the Hana Highway. You can swim in the clear pools or work on your lounging skills on the shore, then, after a hearty lunch, you’ll test your mettle on Skyline Hawaii’s stunning and thrilling 5-line Haleakalā Zipline Tour. This eco-adventure is enough to cover all your Maui bases.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Hiking: Start your day with Maui’s premier hiking operator, Hike Maui, and follow the back roads of Maui along the famous Hana Highway to a majestic rainforest valley with trails and streams leading to two waterfalls on a 2-hour hike. (With your naturalist guide, you’ll have access to some areas not typically open to the public!)
Swimming: Once you discover the waterfalls, it’s time to swim and jump into clear pools and languish beneath and behind the falls. (Swimming is optional - we always encourage just lounging as well! And weather permitting, of course!)
Ziplining adventure: Your day will end with Skyline Hawaii zipping over 90 ft drops and canyons filled with beautiful endemic trees. You’ll also get to experience an Indiana Jones-style swinging bridge and reach speeds over 45 mph on Hawaii's only pendulum line.
Lunch: A delicious lunch will be provided between the hiking and ziplining to ensure you have the stamina to hike ‘n’ zip!

CONSERVATION EFFORTS
#WipeOutPlastic

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. We want to do something about that, so we started an educational, participatory movement, keeping single-use plastic out of our operations, funding projects designed to clean our shorelines, and reduce overall usage of single-use plastic.

 
“Chauncey and Pono were excellent guides! Very funny, professional and eager to have a good time. We felt safe, had fun and learned about the local ecosystem. We would definitely zipline with them again!”
— Michelle H., TripAdvisor
