Explore the immense beauty of Kauai's south shore with Koloa Zipline! You will glide over the water on 22,000 acres of Hawaii's first sugar plantation. Koloa Zipline has Kauai's longest zipline course featuring 3 of the longest lines including the Waita Zipline (1/2 mile). This tour is about approximately 3.5 hours long and consists of 8 lines. Koloa Zipline offers Tandem ziplining, your choice of harness, handlebar pulleys, sunset ziplining, Ground School, and Aerobatics. They were the first company on Kauai to offer the Flyin' Kaua'ian Harness, which allows you to choose to fly hands free like your favorite super hero head first into the action, or kick back and zip traditional style. You can also test your limits with Aerobatics going completely upside down!
The eight ziplines average over 1,000' long, and many of the lines pass through a magical koa forest. Between lines six and seven a light snack and cold drinks are served while enjoying mountain, ocean and lake views. The tour concludes with the famous "Waita" zipline where you soar over Waita reservoir on zipline that is half a mile long!
While the minimum age to zip is 7 and the minimum weight to fly solo is 100 pounds, lighter guests who meet the minimum age may zip using a tandem harness combined with another member of your party (or with a guide!).

Kevin's Activity Tips:
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!
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!
The big attraction at Koloa Zipline is their "Superman style" harness which allows you to zip while lying down with your hands stretched out in front of you! If you have gone ziplining before and feel like you don't need to do it a second time ... THINK AGAIN! You really should give this a try! It adds a WHOLE new dimension to the zipping experience!
