Outfitters Kauai - Kipu Zipline Safari Tour
Outfitters Kauai and Hawaii Activities Discount invites you to come experience Kipu Zipline Safari, a day sure to be action packed! You will be kayaking, hiking, waterfalls, rope swings, and ziplining through Kipu Ranch. Also take a hayride across Kipu Ranch, and a ride on an exotic motorized canoe.
The Kauai Kipu Zipline Safari begins with a 2 mile kayak adventure on the serene Hule'ia River. Then hike the footpaths through Kauai's pristine tropical paradise. After the hike you will hop on board Outfitters Kauai's one of a kind wagon and take in the scenery of Kipu Ranch - see sights from Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park. You will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch after the wagon ride. After lunch comes the Kauai ziplines! Soar past the Haupu Mountains & treetops on the 800' zipline. Traverse a rain forest valley on the suspension bridge. Walk through a hand carved tunnel that was created a century ago by Kipu Ranch cowboys. The 1800' tandem zipline is great fun as you share zipline excitement with a friend! With the center dismount you will be have 90 seconds of air time - be "in flight" for over a quarter mile. Cool off at the secluded wet and wild blue pool. The new water T-bar zipline alllows you to zip over refreshing waters then let go and SPLASH! The adventure ends with a short walk back to the riverside. Relax as Hawaiian style motorized canoes take you back.
