The first zipline course to open in the United States was right here in Hawaii, Skyline Eco-Adventures. In 2002 the father/son zipline operation was begun by Buck and Danny Boren on the slopes of Haleakala and is known as the Haleakala Skyline Tour. Though a short course by today's standards, it set the bar for all zipline courses to follow. Thoroughness and competency were the hallmarks of their operation and still are to this very day. As the years progressed they opened a much longer course in Kaanapali on Maui with amazing views of the Lahaina Roadstead and the peaks of the West Maui's up above them. Next came the Skyline Akaka Falls on the Big Island with its enormous zip distances and its views of the 250' Kolekole Falls just below Akaka. Currently the newest of the Skyline courses is on Kauai in the Poipu region with an eight line zipline tour. A big part of Skyline's success can be attributed to their business philosophy. Of course, like all businesses they are in business to make money, but their intentions run deeper than that. Since their beginnings they have made it a point to give back to the community and to give back to the islands which sustain their business. They have planted thousands of koa trees in an effort to reforest the areas they operate in. They have made their facilities available for charity and youth groups. They have set aside 1% of the cost of every tour and donated it to a worthy cause. They respect their employees and have be named one of Hawaii's best places to work for five years in a row and they have been named 'Hawaii's best land activity company' by the readers of the 'Hawaii Magazine'.
High above the resorts, amidst the verdant valleys of Mount Kahalawai, an incomparable adventure awaits. This land steeped in legend, with panoramic views, plunging cliffs and lush valleys, plays host to a zip line adventure unlike any other.
In collaboration with Maui Downhill, Maui's first bike company, the Bike n' Zip tour will begin with a Maui sunrise at Haleakala's summit before gently descending down the 21 switchbacks with bi-coastal views, starting from 6,500 feet on the mountain's western slopes.
