Zip lining in Maui

Hi! Can anyone recommend a good company for ziplining in Maui? I found one, Skyline Eco Adventures, and it seems to be the #1 spot. At least it says so on it's website. My family of five will be in Maui mid July and looking for something fun and adventurous to do. We typically just relax and snorkle, but my boys (teens and older) are looking for something a bit more exciting. Any suggestions? Also open to other ideas for fun.

Thanks!

Will preface this w/ -- I haven't done it myself. But my neighbor used one company and my cousins used a different one . . . and BOTH said it was the best ever! Definitely 2nd hand info, but I just looked up both on TA and both have overwhelmingly good reviews like 99% excellent. Kapalua seems to have fractionally better reviews.

Hopefully someone w/ personal experience will see your post.

We have used Skyline twice - both were the only times we've ever been ziplining. They were wonderful. They really put us at ease, and were extremely friendly and informative. We did the Haleakala one and the Kaanapali one. Both were great! The Kaanapali one had amazing views and was longer and higher. I have some posts on both of them on my blog:

Thanks, Tifa. My husband really wants to try ziplining but has some issues with arthritis in his ankles. I don't know if he could handle the walking involved, especially if it is a little rocky.

We will be on Maui in November for our 40th anniversary! I hope you will someday celebrate your 40th as well!

Karen - You're welcome! We had an awesome time! Hope you do too

Betty - Thank you! I'd love to celebrate every special occasion on Maui LOL!

I think if you had knee/ankle injuries ziplining will be tough especially when you have to land...some of the landings can come in fast and you'll need to land on your feet running in order to slow yourself down. In any case one of the guides will be there to catch you to prevent you from falling or smashing into anything. Have a great time!
