A zipline is a cable that is suspended high up in the air, typically between two trees and made of stainless steel, and is used as a means of transportation or recreation.
It allows people to fly down the slope to travel from the top of the inclined cable to the bottom. Ziplines can vary in length and height; some even have multiple loops you can zigzag through.
Oahu Zipline Tours are typically 2 hours long. Depending on the Zipline Tour you choose, you can expect a different number of zipline routes and lengths. For example, Kualoa Ranch is home to 7 different ziplines, and all of them are included in the tour. The shortest one is 200 feet long, and the longest one is 1300 feet, or a quarter of a mile. Needless to say, it will be one memorable experience for everyone!
Zipline prices can vary depending on the company and the tour you choose - from $105 to $400 per person. That being said, here at Real Hawai'i tours our Oahu ziplines are around $175 + tax per person.
Yes, you can, and we recommend bringing your own camera on tour, especially your GoPro and a selfie stick. However, we recommend leaving valuables such as jewelry at home.
What To Expect
Every Oahu Zipline Tour is different in their own aspect. However, just so you get an idea... let's cover a day on one of the most popular zipline tours on oahu - The Jurassic Valley zipline at Kualoa Ranch!
You'll start your day by Jumping on a shuttle bus from Waikiki to Kualoa Ranch and enjoy the stunning landscapes around Oahu - getting there will take approximately 1 hour. Once at the ranch, the physical requirements will be checked, and you'll get ready to go ziplining.
You'll start with the shortest zipline, which is 200 feet, and enjoy a few different lines until reaching the last one, which is 1300 feet long.
While descending, you'll go through famous filming locations such as those in Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and King Kong, and we recommend taking your GoPro to watch them again at home.
Once you're done, jump back on the bus to Waikiki and remember all the incredible moments and unique locations you've just witnessed.
What To wear
First and foremost, you'll want to dress for comfort. Wear clothing that you don't mind getting dirty or wet, as you may be climbing through mud and over puddles.
Secondly, make sure to wear closed-toe shoes as they're required, and don't forget to bring sunscreen as the sun in Hawaii is pretty strong. With that in mind, tank tops and short sleeve shirts are fine.
You should also avoid wearing loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught on the zipline. For women, it's important to use a hair elastic as you will feel more comfortable.
We also recommend bringing your own camera on tour, especially your GoPro and a selfie stick. However, we recommend leaving valuables such as jewelry at home.
