ZIPLINE TOURS IN HALEAKALA
Haleakala is the tallest point in the entire island of Maui. It can be seen from almost every point on the island. If you want to fly over the trees here, then you can join the Zipline Tours in Haleakala. The Zipline Tour in Haleakala is offered by Skyline Eco Adventures. Skyline Eco Adventure is the first zip line company in the US. It was founded in 2002 by Buck Boren and his son Danny. They choose Haleakala because of the picturesque and scenic views of the Valley Isle and the neighboring islands of Lanai, Molokai, and Kahoolawe. With this tour, you can soar over 90-foot drops and canyons filled with eucalyptus trees. The lines are connected by an Indiana Jones style hanging bridge. You can also learn about the flora, fauna, and culture of Hawaii through their guides’ expert narration. The last line of the zip line is a unique type of zip line. It is a pendulum line. It is the only one of its kind in Hawaii. Basically, you ride the zip line down and instead of stopping at the end, you stop at the middle. You will swing back and forth until you stop.
The Zipline Tours in Haleaka are 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. Being the tallest point in Maui, the altitude change is definitely large.
