If it’s your first time to visit Kauai, be ready for a wonderful, fun, relaxing, and adventurous time! If you’re the adventurous type who loves a little challenge and excitement, you’ll want to be sure to take one of our Kauai ziplining tours. There’s plenty to do for everyone in the family on our beautiful island; we’ve listed some our favorites below!

How about a mountain tubing adventure tour? Imagine enjoying the natural beauty of the Garden Isle as you float through the narrow tunnels and down the flumes of the Old Lihue Sugar Plantation! A unique tubing adventure – you’ll enjoy an entire mile, in a way that’s relaxing and fun; perfect for families with children.

Love movies? How about a movie site tour, where you’ll enjoy visiting locations where movies, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, and South Pacific, were filmed? Not only will you enjoy visiting the sites, you’ll also experience scenes from some of the biggest blockbusters right on location. Live narrated tours – don’t miss out!

Wailua River kayak, hike and waterfall swim. If you’re up to a five-hour adventure, you’ll enjoy this guided tour where you’ll paddle a kayak along the Wailua River; hike a trail to a “secret” waterfall, as you enjoy a dip in the streams and pools along the trail; and learn about the history of ancient Hawaii and Kauai’s mystical land from expert guides. Truly an adventure you don’t want to miss, not to mention the tropical surroundings that will amaze and delight.

Hula or Samoan fire knife dancing, anyone? Smith’s Family Tropical Paradise Luau in Wailua is a celebration of Hawaiian tradition – an experience you’ll never forget! Enjoy a feast of local island and Hawaii cuisine, including pigs cooked in an underground oven, along with the Rhythm of Aloha show, where you’ll see some of the most amazing dancing, including hula and Samoan fire knife dancing and the Tahitian drum dance.

These are just a few of our top picks of things to do if you’re a first-time visitor to our gorgeous island. There are literally hundreds of activities and events to choose from, but be sure to include one of our fun-filled and exhilarating Kauai zipline tours!


zip lining in kauai

While our Kauai zip line tours are among the safest in the country and vigorously maintained to ensure fun, adventure, and safety for our guests; the same cannot be said for backyard ziplines. While it may sound like a great idea, you can read the newspapers or speak with an injury lawyer to get a true (and maybe even shocking) understanding of why it just isn’t a smart thing to do.

To be honest, there are probably far more backyard ziplines families have enjoyed and that haven’t resulted in injuries than those that have, however, it’s always best to be on the safe side. Why? The injuries people incur from these ziplines are often catastrophic. While closed head injuries and concussions are less frequent injuries, it isn’t unusual to experience strains, sprains, and bruises – but the most common injury of all is broken bones.

Many of the accidents with backyard ziplines can be attributed to the fact that homeowners fail to install them correctly and follow directions. Imagine a zipline installed above a concrete patio, swimming pool, or even hard dirt – it can be disastrous. In addition, most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover the cost of injuries that may occur on one of these “do-it-yourself” zip lines – another factor that may make you rethink your decision.

The best thing to do is avoid these “injury traps” in your own backyard, and, instead, stick with the commercial ziplines that are regulated and adhere to strict safety standards. At Just Live, our Kauai zipline tour facility operates under The Association for Challenge Course Technology – and our leaders are highly trained and certified. We use only the most solid, trustworthy gear and equipment, and can proudly say we have a perfect safety record that spans 14 years, since our facility’s opening in 2003!

If you have a backyard zipline, please be sure it’s properly installed and be careful. If you’re looking for something far more adventurous and challenging, consider zip lining in Kauai! Riding a zipline is one thing – but doing it in the midst of the breathtaking surroundings in Hawaii is something else.
