Maui Zipline at the Maui Tropical Plantation is the one of the most family-friendly tropical adventure on the island! Soar above groves of mango and papaya and swaying palm trees. The whole family can enjoy this fun and exciting tour.
The course has five side-by-side ziplines that range from 300 to 900 feet long. First you will meet your guide and get set up with your gear. Then you will have a short stroll on a well-maintained trail to the top of the observation deck. Take in the stunning bi-coastal views of the ocean as well as the pristine gardens of the tropical plantation below you. Once you are up in the air, you stay high off the ground as you zip from one platform to another. You don't end up back on the ground until the very end of the tour!
The highly trained guides are responsible for your safety, and they will divulge knowledge about Maui's agricultural plants and culture. Each line transports you over the flourishing gardens, and on the final line, you'll journey through palms and over the garden's large tropical lagoon.
For this type of adventure and activity, Maui Zipline is the best value around, and it is the only zipline on Maui that can accommodate children as young as 5 and who weigh as little as 50 pounds. Observers are also welcome to watch most of the action at no charge, which not many other zipline tours allow. Maui Zipline is the perfect opportunity for a fast-paced and exciting experience with the whole family!

Kevin's Activity Tips:
Maui Zipline fills a nice niche as many families have been frustrate by the 12 year old minimum age on most zipline courses. Kids as young as 5 and who weigh as little as 50 pounds are able to do this course. This course was built not to be the longest, or the fastest or the highest, but the most accessible, fun zipline … especially suited for those who have never done this sort of thing before. This course doesn't have the longest lines, the highest lines, or even the most lines. For those looking for a longer, more extreme zipline tour be sure to look at our Flyin Hawaiian Zipline page. But there are people out there who aren't looking for the most extreme tour out there … and this course is a great introduction to zipping and may be just right for you. And at half the cost of other courses, the price is right. One other advantage is that members of your party are able to watch some of the action from below as there is no admission fee to walk around at the Maui Tropical Plantation.
One other thought … for those who are on a tight time schedule and trying to do a lot of fun things and not enough time on Maui to do them all. This zipline tour is located just about 3 minutes away from Maalaea Harbor, where the vast majority of Molokini snorkel tours begin. For a full day of fun, consider doing a Molokini snorkel tour in the morning, followed by this zipline tour at 2:30pm. Most Molokini tours return to the harbor by 1:00pm … see our Molokini Snorkel Tours page for details.
