What You Can Expect

Kipu Zipline Safari

Wagon trip across Kipu Ranch

There’s something for everyone on this action-packed zipline tour in Kauai! Choose from two morning departure times, then connect with your guide at the designated meeting point. 

Hop aboard a deluxe two-person kayak for a leisurely 2-mile (3.2 km) paddle down the Hule'ia River. Disembark along waterfalls in the natural pools, then hop aboard a tractor pull covered wagon for a scenic ride across Kipu Ranch. You may recognize the landscape from movies like Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark

Hike along the Kamapua'a Falls trail to reach your lunch spot — an elaborate tree house constructed in a giant Banyan tree. Dine on a picnic prepared by your guide while enjoying incredible views of the waterfall.

In the afternoon, get your adrenaline pumping as you fly across a series of jungle ziplines with the stunning Haupu Mountains as a backdrop. Soar through the canopy on an 800-foot cable, then return to the base via a suspension bridge. For a true thrill, feel the rush of a 90-second flight across an 1,800-foot (549-meter) zipline as you ride tandem with a family member or friend.

After your exhilarating zipline adventure, relax as a motorized Hawaiian canoe carries you along the river back to the starting point.

Restrictions: Must be able to walk 2 miles (3.2 km) and kayak 60-90 minutes. Participants must weigh between 80 and 275 lbs (between 36 and 125 kg) to fit in the harness for the zipline. Minimum age to participate in the zipline is 7 years.

Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. My husband and I took this trip with guides Keith and Ben. Muppy joined us after the kayak portion and was knowledgeable about island history and the plants and animals. After our couple mile kayak trip, and a chance to rope swing into a swimming hole, we had a short hike to a tractor and wagon for a ride to the ziplnes. We had a nice lunch of Turkey sandwich, pasta salad and a brownie. Following lunch we went on a suspension bridge and two zipines. During our hike to the motorized double kayak for our return, we stopped at a swimming hole for a short zip line into a swimming hole. You could also jump from a high or low deck. Overall, the trip was fun, the guides were knowledgeable and great. I would recommend this trip for a little bit of everything.

Awesome tour! The paddling was fun, hiking took us to amazing places. Lunch is not gourmet, but eaten in a nice location. The ziplines are really something to experience. The guides are very good, keep up a good mood, and make you feel safe on the ziplines. Would recommend to anyone who is into outdoors.

This was an incredible experience. A triple treat with kayaking, hiking, and zip lining, with dips in fresh waterfall fed pools to cool off in between. Christian, Aaron, and Chase were wonderful. Great guides. with such friendly and helpful dispositions. They all made everyone feel safe and confident. Even with a full day of activity, nothing was too strenuous....we even had an amazing 5 year old who was the bravest one in the bunch! If you only have a few days to spend in Kauai, (or not, come to think of it!) this adventure should be at the top of your list!
