All our equipment is tested to hold at least 5,000 lbs.
Each zipline has a minimum breaking strength of over 26,000 lbs.
All our equipment is the product of meticulous crafting and careful engineering with a leading engineering consulting firm.
We train our guides above and beyond the industry standard of 40 hours. Each guide goes through an 80 hour training process, as well as a period of "assistant guiding."
Every day, our trained staff thoroughly inspects all ziplines, platforms, trails, and equipment on each of our courses.
Each year, an accredited ACCT inspector conducts a comprehensive review of each Skyline course, piece of equipment and all current practices.
We're located just a few minutes from Poipu's resort area. You'll check-in and meet your guides at the Shops at Kukui'ula, then we'll hop in one of our adventure vans and drive into Kauai's lush mountains where your tour will begin.

Customers with serious neck, back, or joint injuries or chronic heart problems should use their own discretion about their capabilities to safely participate in this activity. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that anyone who has had recent surgery, especially on ankles, knees or their back, not participate in this tour. Although we try to always make customers comfortable both physically and mentally, some degree of impact on joints or some degree of customer anxiety about zipping is unavoidable.
Ziplining isn't strenuous, but you need to be able to hike about 1/2 mile and climb steps. We have had people from age 10 to 100 do the course without problems.
We have a generous cancellation policy. Cancel 24 hours or more before your tour and you will receive a 100% refund. Less than 24 hours, no refund.
Yes, you may bring your camera/phone along to snap photos along the way. Your guides will also take many photos of you zipping. All the pictures from your tour will be available for $15. You can also rent a Go-Pro camera (you'll see this option when you check out).
Kids 15-17 years old need an adult signature on their waiver but can take part in our tours without an adult in their group.
Kids 14 years and younger need to have an adult on tour with them and an adult must sign the waiver for each child. The adult can be a parent, relative, or friend and must be 18 years or older.
For your safety, we require that you wear shoes with a fully-enclosed heel and toe - tennis, athletic or hiking type shoes are best. We do not allow hiking sandals, Teva's, Keene's, Crocs, Tom's, Vibram FiveFinger shoes or Skecher Shapers on the course. Shoes must be snug to your foot so please do not wear loose fitting or unlaced Converse-style shoes.
Shorts and a short-sleeve t-shirt are recommended (due to regularly hot weather here). SUNSCREEN is highly recommended. White clothing is NOT recommended. Wearing brightly colored clothes will make pictures look amazing!
We love little zippers, but we ask you have had your 8th birthday for our 5-line tour and your 10th birthday for our 8-line tour. Please keep in mind zippers must also weigh at least 60 lbs for our 5-line tour and 80 lbs for our 8-line tour.
