You are not a bird. You do not have wings. You cannot catch a thermal and wheel around the sky, looking down at the Earth at if it is your domain. You, dear reader, are all too human.
And yet you still want to fly. Over the gorgeous gulches on the West Maui Mountains. You want to soar over the verdant green as naturally (read: safely) as, well, a bird.
So what to do?
It’s simple: sign up for a zipline ride with Kapalua Adventures. You won’t be flapping your wings, true, but you will be doing a kind of flying simulation—one that is as safe as it is comfortable.
Clad in clothes suitable for athletic outdoor activities and minus any jewelry, you’ll strap into the nylon harness and slide across one of eight zipline spans, two of which are more than 2,000 feet long. If you’re with someone else, you can ride along parallel ziplines and wave hi with your wing, er, hands.
So, yeah, going with a friend can help alleviate any apprehension you may have. But if you’re still nervous, don’t worry: the good folks at Kapalua Adventures will help you along.
“Our Tour is designed to gradually prepare you for some of the higher, longer zip lines,” according to their website. “Our professionally trained guides will be with you at all times to make sure that everyone has a positive experience. All our equipment is checked daily and meets or exceeds all industry standards.”
So fear not. Flying is easy at Kapalua Adventures.
We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
