Come experience KING KONG, the newest and longest zipline on the Princeville Ranch adventure! Harness up and climb into Princeville Ranch’s all terrain open-air transporters for a short ride to the trailhead. Clip in and soar like a bird over breathtaking valleys and streams as you embark on a series of 9 zipline crossings. Walk through the treetops and over a waterfall on a suspension bridge that gives new meaning to the term “suspension.” After a series of zips and walks you arrive at a hidden treasure … an idyllic waterfall and swimming hole where the water is deep enough for you to jump from the surrounding rocks. You can swim, jump, float on an inner tube, or relax in a hammock while the guides prepare your picnic lunch. And new on this course is the tandem King Kong zipline … guests walk up to the top of a 26 foot tower and then zip for 1200 feet! This one-of-a-kind adventure gives you the chance to sail through the air while enjoying a bird’s eye view of a Hawaiian jungle paradise.

Princeville Ranch Zip and Dip works best for cruisers on the afternoon of day one in port … as long as they plan to rent a car and do some exploring on their own. It is on the north shore of Kauai and you definitely need a rental car (the drive is about an hour). It is an easy and beautiful drive and the tour is well worth the effort.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

A few years ago no one ever heard of zipping … now it is the hottest activity on Kauai! All of these lines have been engineered and constructed to the highest standards meeting requirements set by ACCT (the Association for Challenge Course Technology). This is actually one of the SAFER things you will do on vacation. You are more likely to get hurt loading luggage into your rental car or hanging out at your resort’s swimming pool!

Princeville Ranch’s lines have varying lengths, some of which are SOOOOO long I just can’t figure out how they were able to string them up in the first place! (did they use a helicopter?) They have courses that have multiple lines and you do each line once. Every line is a little different, but are tightly strung from pole to pole, and each requires a little instruction about what to expect … the guides say things like “The wind is in your face on this one so you need to get a running start” or “This landing has a steep incline … as soon as your feet hit the ground keep running.” These lines move along at a pretty fast pace, but not so fast that you can’t enjoy the scenery around you. There is a total of about one mile hiking in between lines.

Princeville Ranch has 9 lines that cross back and forth over gullies (actually one line is so long that it feels like you are crossing an entire VALLEY). Their brand new King Kong line is 1200 feet long and it is a TWIN line, which means two people zip side by side at the same time. They also have one gnarly (ie. fun) suspension bridge that you need to clip onto for safety when you cross. Princeville Ranch gets the edge over other ziplines on Kauai as their swimming hole has a private waterfall and is a really pretty spot.

Princeville Ranch allows you to take off backwards, although some lines they won’t let you do it because you can’t get a running start. They will also let you spin and the guide will “wind you up” a few times before you start out if that sounds like fun!

A word about observers. It is not possible for observers to go along with Princeville Ranch … they start from remote locations and once you begin the tour you have to zip to the end to be able to end the tour.

A word about the length of these tours … while there are published times regarding how long each tour takes to complete, these lengths are based upon average duration on a full tour. If your tour has active people who hike fast and don’t hesitate when they zip, the tour can be a little shorter in duration, especially if your tour time isn’t full. If your tour time is full and there are a few people who are slower on the tour, it could take a few minutes longer than the published duration.

Zipping is FUN … and it is addictive! If you have time and your budget allows, you might even decide to do two zipline tours during your vacation. Really … it’s that much fun! I talked with a client recently who did THREE zipline tours during one vacation. We have clients who have told us that they are making their vacation destination plans based upon the availability of zipline tours … if there are no zipline tours to do they’ll go someplace that has them! If you decide to take their advice and do more than one zipline tour, we would suggest either Princeville Ranch or Kauai Backcountry for one tour, and either Treetops or Kipu Zipline for the other.

If you are having problems deciding, call our office toll-free at 1.877.678.7333 and we’ll help you sort things out and make a decision. If you are debating between zip lines, we recommend doing the one that is closer to your resort.
