1. Oahu Zipline & Adventure Tower Package

Oahu Zipline & Adventure Tower Package

Tour Highlights:

  • Duration: 4.5 hours
  • Departure: 91-1780 Midway St, Kapolei, HI 96707

If you’re on the hunt for a fully-comprehensive tour that comes with a cool-looking spot, various activities, professional staff, and a whole lot of fun, look no further! The Zipline & Adventure Tower Package fits that description and more. Lasting 4.5 hours, it’s great for an afternoon or morning getting that adrenaline rushing!

Known for their one-of-a-kind, 60-foot Adventure Tower, this tour is great for newbies and seasoned vets. Once you sign up, you’ll get to take advantage of all 6 lines of their signature Zipline Course! This course will take you soaring through trees and fresh air!

You’ll step off a 20-foot platform with an auto-belay system that’s convenient and requires no stairs! If you’re a bit nervous about being too high up, there’s no need to worry. The first level is just 20 feet off the ground, and the second level is 40 feet.

While that alone is worth the trip, you also get 18 challenge elements where you’ll feel like you’re on some competitive tv show! For example, you’ll get to make your way over wobbly bridges, rail sliding, ropes, and more.

Our personal favorite was the King Swing, which is much like the name suggests: a huge pendulum swing which will have you flying through the sky! The experienced guides will make sure you’re slowly and safely lowered to the ground.

If you still haven’t had enough adventure, finish off the tour with the Climbing Wall that features 4 different routes to try!

Next up, we have the Oahu Full Zipline Tour, which consists of 6 lines and a ton of fun in the middle of lush greenery. This is one of the more budget-friendly tours as it doesn’t have a lot of the “extras” outside of the actual ziplines. However, this doesn’t mean it’s any less exciting!

We love this tour option for those who are trying to pack in as much as possible and want a short trip that still includes enough time for instruction and zipping through the air.

This 2-hour tour ensures you make the most of your time and get to try out ziplining while still leaving room for other activities throughout your day. You get to choose from either a morning or afternoon departure so you can best plan out everything.

The professional guide does an amazing job on this Coral Crater ziplining tour with 6 lines that range from 300 to 900 feet! This versatility is very handy as nervous beginners get a lower line that’s closer to the ground, and can work their way up as their confidence grows.

The ziplines are very well-maintained and feature the newest, most reliable braking system. This system means that you don’t have to control your own speed or worry about stopping yourself, as it does it for you!

Even if you’re traveling with younger children, you’ll be able to tandem zip with them, so long as they weigh above 40 pounds.

No Oahu ziplining guide would be complete without the mention of the Half Zipline Tour. This one is the shortest tour of the bunch, which is great if you don’t want to dedicate much time to it.

Consisting of 3 lines that range from 300 to 900 feet long, it’s perfect if you’re just starting out or don’t have any experience. You’ll start off by meeting your guide at the check-in location and take you to each tower so you know what you’re doing.

If you decide to tandem with a child, it’ll leave you more mental space for focusing on them, too.

We enjoyed the brightly-painted structure which is just as much fun to climb up and over as it is to zipline from! Oh, and did we mention that there are baby bunnies present? The guides are great, and offer some insight into the history of the island, along with some personal anecdotes.

If you’re looking to save some cash while still having a blast, this is one of the best options out there!
