Even if you’re ziplining in Kauai for the first time, most people prefer not to come across as first-timers or even “idiots.” While we certainly don’t consider any of our guests as fools or dingbats, we want you to enjoy your experience to the utmost! As the most reputable facility for eco-based zipline tours in Kauai, we have a few tips we think you’ll appreciate if you’re a newbie to this fun and exhilarating experience.

First of all, don’t wear the wrong clothing trying to “look your best.” Short shorts, mini skirts, flip flops…what you’re going for here is safety, not style. Because you’ll be in a harness, you’ll be safer and a lot more comfortable wearing closed shoes and either light-weight well-fitting pants or long shorts – and you’ll fit right in with those who’ve ridden dozens of times and know what they’re doing.

Don’t ignore the safety instructions given by professional guides. Even if you’ve ridden 30 different ziplines around the world, every one is different. Don’t assume you know what to do, because you know what happens when you assume! Be safe, and listen carefully to safety instructions and other information provided by guides.

Leave EVERYTHING that’s unnecessary behind. Sure you’ll want your camera or cell phone to take pictures, but leave the fancy jewelry, keys, or other items you don’t absolutely have to have behind. When it comes to taking a zipline tour, simple is best. Make sure your camera or cell phone is secure, tie long hair up in a ponytail or braid, and have the time of your life!

Realize there’s more to it than taking a hundred selfies. Sure you’ll want to take a few pics to share with friends and family on social media – but you don’t want to be so absorbed in yourself that you miss out on all of the beautiful landscape that surrounds you! Lush forests, gorgeous mountains, and depending where you are, sparkling rivers and deep canyons – there are breathtaking views around the world you may only have the opportunity to see once, so don’t make the focus all about you.

These are just a few of the things you should keep in mind when taking a zipline tour in Kauai, or anywhere else around the world for that matter! If you’re visiting the island in the near future, make sure to come see us at Just Live!, the place where adventure, fun, and excitement abounds.
