Have you ever watched Tarzan fly through the jungle on vines and thought, “Wow! Now that would be cool to do!” Well, here’s your chance to be a real live Tarzan or Jane flying through the lush jungles of Maui! Of course, your “vine” will be a bit more high-tech and safe than hanging onto a piece of foliage as you sail over remote jungle valleys and streams on one of Maui’s ziplines.
A Unique Adventure: Ziplining in Maui
Before becoming a popular recreational activity, ziplines were most commonly used by wildlife biologists to access high, remote forest canopies. Now you too can soar like a bird over terrain that is inaccessible by foot, seeing sights that you could not otherwise experience. Safely snugged into a harness seat attached to a heavy-duty steel cable – you can be in sitting or soaring position – and garnering speeds up to 35 miles per hour, ziplining Maui’s skies for many is the thrill and vacation experience of a lifetime.
