One of the things that we don’t do often enough when we travel is to check on sites like Groupon for deals related to activities that we’re already interested. I guess it’s a good thing that my mom was looking out for us, otherwise we wouldn’t have found out about Skyline Eco-Adventures and gotten an amazing deal for our ziplining adventure!
Located in Poipu, Skyline Eco-Adventures offers two different course options for your ziplining adventure, a 5 line or an 8 line course. The 5 line course costs $98.95/person while the 8 line course costs $125.96/person, and the Groupon that Chris and I used was the 8 line course for $99/person. Basically we got 3 extra ziplines for free!
Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Skyline Eco-Adventures. Chris and I have been ziplining before in Jamaica on a cruise, and while it was fun, our time in Kauai absolutely blew it out of the water. Not only did I think that the courses were a lot better, but I can’t say enough positive things about the guides. They told us a lot about the history of the island of Kauai, but they also told us some cool pop culture things, like how Jurassic World was filmed near where we were ziplining. We had such a blast on our ziplining adventure, and I know that you will too, if you’re looking for some adventure during your Hawaiian vacation!
Know Before You Go
- Wear a hat and close toed shoes and comfy clothes- You could get seriously injured if you wear sandals, and you’re going to be strapped into harnesses in order to zipline, so you definitely want to be in athletic clothes and closed toed shoes!
- Don’t forget the sunscreen- You’ll be flying over the trees, not standing in the shade underneath them, and the last thing you want is to be fried before you make it to the beach!
- Be prepared to hike- As you’ve guessed, in order to actually zipline, you need to first start at a high point. In order to get to a high point, you will have to do some walking, but just think about how amazing it will feel to have the wind whipping through your hair as your ziplining back down!
- Bring your own GoPro- Skyline Eco-Adventures allows you to rent a GoPro so you can remember your fun, but you can bring your own and save some money!
- Arrive early- You have to sign a couple of waivers, get weighed in, and fitted with all of your equipment, so make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes early. You don’t want to miss your bus to the ziplines!
- Bring a phone, but maybe not your nice camera- They provide a small pouch that you can store small items in, but remember that you’re going to be going on a zipline which means things get jostled around. I wouldn’t recommend bringing your nice camera. You can get some pretty awesome pictures with your phone or a point and shoot camera instead.
- Don’t be afraid to take a leap- I know that ziplining can be scary, but I promise that it’s a ton of fun, and totally worth every little bit that you might be scared! Don’t be afraid to run and take a leap off the platform for lthe adventure of a lifetime!
- Check out their website- Skyline Eco-Adventures has quite a few requirements on their website and you want to make sure that you fit all of the requirements before booking your trip. There are certain age, height, weight, and other requirements that must be met in order for you to go ziplining!
Overall, you will not be disappointed by choosing to zipline with Skyline Eco-Adventures during your stay on Kauai. With great guides and a great course, you’re sure to have an amazing adventure!
