Kapalua Zipline has dual or side by side ziplines. The harness assembly is comfortable with a cross bar above that creates a natural seat for a smooth ride. Each landing platform is equipped with coiled springs at the end of the line that brings you to a gentle stop. The guide brings out a ladder for you to step down on after you stop.

All zipline tours meet at the Kapalua Zipline Office on Office Road in Kapalua. There is plenty of free parking and the Honolua General Store is just across the parking lot. Maui zipline tours require each guest to be weighed when checking in and signa a waiver of liability.

After everyone has been checked in, your guide will walk you out to the assembly area where you will be outfitted in the harness and helmet. The guide will take a group photo, so smile and give the shaka...The photo, along with the rest of the pictures your guide takes throughout the activity can be purchased at the end of the adventure.

The next step in the journey is the shuttle ride up to the Zipline course. The ride treks up the mountain in 4-wheel drive for about 15 minutes until you reach the first line. There are ATV rides, jungle and some of the best views of the coast that can be had while zip lining with Kapalua.

Total length zipped is 9,750 feet. The 7-line course covers lines 1 through 7 or all the longer lines. You can reach speeds up to 45 miles per hour on the longer lines.

It’s the best zipline in Maui. The views are simply amazing. The course moves from dense jungle to open fields that were once planted with sugar cane. The third line begins under the forest canopy, immerging through a tree tunnel that is the best zipline you will ever experience.  

During the journey between ziplines the hiking is easy to moderate. In some cases, an ATV Polaris takes you part of the way. There is a 360-suspended bridge and the outpost, where the tour concludes.

The meet location is in Kapalua, but the zipline location is above the airport in Honokawai. From the outpost, you can see the entire West Maui coastline from Lahaina to Honolua Bay.

Although Kapalua zipline has dual lines, it still takes time to harness up and dismount. The group size is limited to 10 guests and 2 guides. One guide attaches you to the cable while the other waits for you on the other side. The guide who is on the other side uses a ladder to assist you in dismounting.

1 x Kapalua Zipline Adventure, 5 Line Course

Total length zipped is 6,200 feet. That’s over 1 mile. On the course map, the 5-line begins at the 4th line and continues through the 8th line.

The 5-line spans the lower part of the course. Some of the highlights are a Polaris ATV ride, waterfalls and the 360-foot suspended bridge. For the most part, the 5 - line course is over valleys and across open space that was once sugar cane fields that have become green meadows in the shadow of the mountains. The Kapalua Zipline is a fun adventure that your entire family will remember as the highlight of your Maui vacation.

Besides the fantastic views of Molokai, Kapalua Zipline is the only dual course on the west side. Families can race each other to the end of the line. It’s a gravity thing with usually the heavier person wins, but not always. You can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour on the longer lines.

The take offs are much like a horse race. The platforms have a gate in them that opens up once your set to zip. Your feet will be against the front wall, then the guide opens the gate, gravity takes care of the rest.

When you reach the other end, a set of coiled springs cushion the impact. First your line hits the braker bar which slows you down. The springs bring you to a gentle stop. The guide uses a ladder to dismount you.

1 x Kapalua Zipline, 6-Line Course

Total length zipped is 8,500 feet. That’s over 1.5 miles. It’s also the fastest zipline course on Maui. On the course map, the 6-line begins at the 3rd line and continues through the 8th line.

It’s a unique course that begins with the longest line which requires a Polaris ATV ride up to the platform. The ride takes you deep into the rainforest of the West Maui Mountains. When you arrive, there is a large deck to wait on, before it’s your turn to walk up a suspended bridge to the launching platform. The entire area is magical and will leave you with a feeling of being one with nature.

The third line at Kapalua has always been my favorite zipline on Maui. I enjoy the experience of zipping out of a tree tunnel. The first 100 yards are beneath the canopy of the forest. Once you emerge, the views are staggering. You can see the landing platform from the launch location under the trees. It’s amazing how fast this line is; one moment you are in the rainforest, the next you are on a platform at the beginning of the valley that the line races down. It’s a WOW factor, that is one thing that is known. The rest, well you’ll have to discover that for yourself.

A 360-foot suspended bridge spans a canyon in the middle of this course. It looks like the Golden Gate Bridge. Unlike other suspended bridges on Maui, this one is wide. You can drive an ATV across it. It’s also pretty high up with a year-round stream running beneath it. Out of all the Maui activities that feature a bridge as part of the activity, this one is the most scenic and best constructed.

Many times, we have been asked, what do the weigh ranges has to do with ziplining? The cable can hold 14,000 pounds, so what’s the deal. Insurance companies are the deal. Each person weight is relative to how fast you zip down the line. The heavier you are, the faster you go. It all about the landing. The insurance companies believe that adding a weight range will reduce the hard landing factor, which in turn will alleviate injury claims. When you zip into the coiled springs used as a stopper, it can bounce you back rather quickly.  Heavier people will experience the bounce back more than lighter people. Considering most people who come to Maui are not in shape with toned muscles and have some extra padding, they would be the ones who would suffer an injury. So, the insurance companies regulate the weigh ranges to reduce the possibly of claims.

The reason for the lower weight range is light people, such as children, may get stuck out on the line if their weight isn’t sufficient enough to carry them across the line. The lines are arced with the landing platform usually higher the lowest part of the arc. This is designed as a natural braking system. Like a car going down a hill and then coasting up a slope, you will lose speed.
Hope this makes sense. It is however the reason for the weight range.

This page is devoted to questions we frequently get about ziplines in Maui.

How do I get my tickets?
In most cases your zipline voucher is delivered electronically to your inbox. All you have to do is print it out; bring it to Maui and present the voucher to the vendor when you check-in.

Do I need a voucher for every person in my group?
No. The number of people participating is listed on the voucher under Q or quantity. One voucher works for the entire group.

I don’t have a printer?
That’s okay. Your phone works fine. All you would have to do is show the voucher on your phone to the vendor when you check-in.

Can I wait until Arrive on Maui to schedule a zipline tour?
In most cases you shouldn’t wait. Ziplines in Maui are the most popular activity on the Island. Although there are several zipline vendors, tour groups are small and sell out quickly. To secure the date and time you are looking for, book the activity as soon as possible.

What happens if it rains?
In most cases zip lines in Maui go rain or shine. If for some reason the zipline is canceled due to weather related issues we will refund the voucher 100%. Ziplines are very difficult to reschedule.

What is your cancellation policy?
All ziplines have a 48-hour cancellation policy for any kind of refund. Our cancellation policy is detailed in our terms and conditions page.

Are ziplines safe?
Yes. Each zipline vendor inspects their lines and equipment daily. There has never been an accident involving a guest on Maui.

What do the “Guidelines” mean?
The guidelines are restrictions imposed by the zipline vendors. The guidelines or restrictions were created by the insurance providers of the zipline company to limit their liability and putting it squarely on the zipline vendor. They are very strict with the guidelines. There are no refunds for booking the zipline and not meeting the guidelines when you check-in. Each zipline vendor weighs every person and has you complete a waiver of liability to participate. If you have any questions about the guidelines, please call us.

Do I need a car?
In most cases, yes, you need a vehicle to drive to the meet location. Ziplines are all conducted on private property. The amount of land required to build the course is often away from the resort areas on Maui. We will send you driving directions to the zipline meet location.

How long is the zipline tour?
The duration of a Maui zipline tour depends on how the group moves and the course you choose. You can find the duration under dates on the activity page of each zipline.
