The Zipline Tours in Makawao is quite strenuous so those with medical conditions like back problems or women who are pregnant are not advised to partake in these activities. It’s also advised not to go scuba diving 24 hours before the zip lines. This is because the ziplines are located at high elevations and going to a high altitude after scuba diving can have harmful effects. It can cause decompression sickness or the bends. This is caused by bubbles which form in the blood and other body parts of people who have the pressure around them decrease too quickly.

Here is a list of the different options for Zipline Tours in Makawao.
