On this exciting Kaanapali zipline tour, you’ll meet your guide in Kaanapali just minutes from the resorts and Lahaiana, and strap in for an off-road journey up the slopes of Mauna Kahalawai. Also known as the West Maui Mountains, these slopes are 1.5 million years old and hold deeply eroded valleys, which you’ll soon be zipping and flying across as you soar your way down the mountain.
At the start of this 8-line zipline course, take a moment to drink in the views of the Hawaiian islands before you, with the panorama stretching from Kahoolawe on your left to the summit of Molokai on your right. Staring directly in front of you, however, are Maui’s eroded ravines, which you’ll criss-cross at speeds that will get your cheeks flapping as you zip your way down towards the coast.
In total, expect to hike about 2 miles (3.2km) as you walk between the eight lines and view a lush valley. Throughout the tour, your knowledgeable guides provide history lessons and explain the island’s geology, as well as discuss the wildlife and plants that call the mountain slope home.
There are four more ziplines you’ll need to cross before eventually reaching the bottom, where you’ll transfer back to the Kaanapali office and turquoise shoreline below.
