73. ZIP KAUA‘I

101 Things to Do (Kauaʻi) - - BEYOND THE CITY -

With its un­even ter­rain and tan­gled jun­gle canopy, Kaua‘i’s back­coun­try is a nat­u­ral set­ting for ZI­PLIN­ING.

A thrill ride above the tree­tops, zi­plin­ing is a wild, let-your­self-go ex­pe­ri­ence that calls for shriek­ing from be­gin­ning to end. Sim­ply put, a zi­pline is a ca­ble stretched be­tween poles. Har­nessed to the ca­ble, zi­plin­ers sail through the tree­tops, dip into val­leys, drop into wa­ter holes and gen­er­ally do their best im­i­ta­tion of a James Bond es­cape. Any­one look­ing for a rush that’s safe and only mildly ad­dic­tive won’t be dis­ap­pointed with a ride on a zi­pline.

OUT­FIT­TERS KAUAI brought zi­plines to the is­land sev­eral years ago. Now, many com­pa­nies on Kaua‘i (see be­low for tour providers) run zi­pline cour­ses com­bined with other high-en­ergy ad­ven­tures, in­clud­ing the is­land’s new­est zi­pline op­er­a­tion, SKY­LINE ECO-AD­VEN­TURES. PRINCEVILLE RANCH AD­VEN­TURES brings an ex­tra spe­cial ZI­PLIN­ING/ BIK­ING of­fer­ing to Hawai‘i. Its most pop­u­lar tour, Zip N’ Dip, is a thriller com­bi­na­tion of nine pic­turesque zip lines and an hour stop at a nat­u­ral hid­den swim­ming pool and water­fall where guests can jump in and splash around. Other great op­tions in­clude JUST LIVE! ZI­PLINE TOURS, KOLOA ZI­PLINE and KAUA‘I BACK­COUN­TRY AD­VEN­TURES. Age, weight and height re­stric­tions ap­ply for zi­pline runs.
