Flyin Hawaiian Zipline is Maui’s longest, highest, and fastest zipline course! This course features eight zipline experiences with really long rides. One line is 2800 foot and is tied for the second longest line in Hawaii, and there are also lines of 2100 feet and 1900 feet. Their grand finale is the longest at a staggering 3600 feet in length, which is over two-thirds of a mile ride on one single zipline!
Flyin Hawaiian Zipline’s location in Central Maui is a convenient drive for guests staying in both South Maui and West Maui. The course is so long that it starts and ends in two different towns! Flyin Hawaiian Zipline tour begins at the Maui Tropical Plantation in the village of Waikapu. The course ends in Maalaea a little over a mile from the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and Maalaea Harbor.
After checking in, you will board a 4 wheel drive van and enter the picturesque Waikapu Valley by way of a dirt road through old sugar can fields. The first stop is their 250 feet long “trainer line,” and you will gear up here. This line is only a few feet off the ground, and it is designed to familiarize guests with the equipment. You will gain confidence in the zipping system before moving on to the longer and higher lines. The guides make zipping easy by securing you in your harness and attaching your trolley to the line each time you zip. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
Next, board a six-seat ATV called a “ranger” which is driven by one of the guides. They transport you to the top of the ridge on the south side of Waikapu Valley to the 1500 foot level. An uphill trail, which is short but moderately strenuous, leads you to the observation deck where you look out over the valley. The second line is 2800 feet in length, and watch as your guide zips to a landing platform that you can barely make out on the other side. When it is your turn, you will fly through air and soar past the spires of the breathtaking West Maui Mountains.
Typical ziplines courses will work their way down going back and forth from the top of a mountain or cross back and forth over a gulch. The Flyin Hawaiian course is different. From the top of a ridge, you will soar across 11 ridges and 9 valleys as you work across slopes from north to south of the West Maui Mountains. From the second line, you cross a very wide valley and land on the next ridge. Then the third line starts on that ridge, and to get to the fourth line, you cross the next valley! And then to get to the fifth line…well, you get the idea! Not only is this an adventure, it’s a form of transportation!
The greatest vertical elevation drop is on the third line. It is 1900 feet long, and the drop is about 500 feet. You can go to speeds up to 55 miles per hour as you gradually accelerate and then speed when you hit the middle of the line. On the forth line you’ll smoothly cruise 2100 feet of line. The fifth line may seem short, because it’s 500 feet long. Keep in mind that this is considered a “long line” at most other courses. On this line, you have the option to zip backward, which we highly recommend!
The sixth line is 800 feet long and the seventh line is 600 feet. When the final line comes to view, it’s hard to believe the distance the line covers. It’s hard to see the landing platform across the 3600 feet of line! You will cross close to the tops of three ridges, which gives you an diea of the speed you are zipping. At the end of the final line, an ATV ranger takes you down the mountain to a van, which will take you a few miles away to the check-in location.
The Flyin Hawaiian offers adventure plus stunning spectacular views of the West Maui Mountains, the Central Valley of Maui, Kahului Harbor, Maalaea Bay, and Halaeakala!
