    What to Expect
    There’s something for everyone on this action-packed zipline tour in Kauai! Choose from two morning departure times, then connect with your guide at the designated meeting point. 

    Hop aboard a deluxe two-person kayak for a leisurely 2-mile (3.2 km) paddle down the Hule'ia River. Disembark along waterfalls in the natural pools, then hop aboard a tractor pull covered wagon for a scenic ride across Kipu Ranch. You may recognize the landscape from movies like Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark. 

    Hike along the Kamapua'a Falls trail to reach your lunch spot — an elaborate tree house constructed in a giant Banyan tree. Dine on a picnic prepared by your guide while enjoying incredible views of the waterfall.

    In the afternoon, get your adrenaline pumping as you fly across a series of jungle ziplines with the stunning Haupu Mountains as a backdrop. Soar through the canopy on an 800-foot cable, then return to the base via a suspension bridge. For a true thrill, feel the rush of a 90-second flight across an 1,800-foot (549-meter) zipline as you ride tandem with a family member or friend.

    After your exhilarating zipline adventure, relax as a motorized Hawaiian canoe carries you along the river back to the starting point.

    Restrictions: Must be able to walk 2 miles (3.2 km) and kayak 60-90 minutes. Participants must weigh between 80 and 275 lbs (between 36 and 125 kg) to fit in the harness for the zipline. Minimum age to participate in the zipline is 7 years.

    Took the family on this adventure and laughed and had a blast the whole time. Started out with a paddle that took probably 1hr. Not too strenuous. Off loaded then began our 30min hike. It had rained so the hiking part was pretty muddy so we were slipping and sliding around a bit

    Initial thoughts were this trip was expensive, but so much included and definitely worth the money! Great day of hiking, kayaking and zip lining to some beautiful locations not otherwise accessible. The guides were all wonderful and made it a wonderful day out!
