When endless exploration is on the menu, you can get your fill by taking private and group tours from Outfitters Kauai. On their tours, you can soar high above the beautiful island landscapes or zoom across the breathtaking waterways. Then, once you get a taste of the exhilarating adventures, you can keep the fun going with their kayak rentals.

If you want to fly high while experiencing the beauty of Kauai, you just have to sign up for their zipline tours. They have nearly one dozen separate lines set up across Kipu Ranch, located on the southeastern side of the island. Amongst those lines, you can find the longest zipline on the island, their ¾-mile-long FlyLine.  

If you’d like to keep your feet closer to the ground, you can take their kayak tours instead. Depending on which tour you select, you can go on a jungle adventure along the Wailua River or explore the National Wildlife Refuge by way of the Huleia River. Either way, you’re sure to see stunning waterfalls, tropical rainforests, and everything in between.

Want the best of both worlds? Then, definitely sign up for their Kipu Zipline Safari Tour. On that trip, you’ll start off at the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor for a paddle up the Huleia River. Then, you’ll take a hike to the waterfalls where you can swim and play to your heart’s content.

Once you’re done enjoying the rejuvenating waters, your tour guide will take you on a wagon ride to all the nearby filming locations for blockbuster hits, like “Jurassic Park” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Then, you’ll zipline around to see it all from above before relaxing on the motorized canoe for the trip back to where it all started.

Their most popular activities include:

Hidden Falls Kayak Adventure
The Hidden Falls Kayak Adventure takes you on a two-mile trip down the Huleia River, so you can experience all the best sights in the National Wildlife Refuge. During this excursion, you’ll land on jungle trails, get to play in the waterfalls, and take a motorized canoe back to shore after you’re all tuckered out.

Adrenaline Kauai Zipline Tour
Upon signing up for the Adrenaline Kauai Zipline Tour, you’ll be set to race across the skylines on four separate ziplines, including the FlyLine. As you cruise through the skies on this three-hour tour, you will have a chance to try sweet spins and other aerobatics before plunging into the Bamboo Pool at the end.

PowerLine Zipline Tour
The PowerLine Zipline Tour is a tandem adventure for you and your best buddy, letting you fly side by side through the gorgeous skies. Across your 2.5 hour run, you’ll glide over Kipu Ranch before hitting the fourth line for a superhero-esque flying experience. Then, you’ll climb up the five-story tower to ride the 4,000-foot FlyLine, which gets you up to a blazing fast 50 MPH.

When you want to explore the waterways on your own, just ask for a kayak rental. Their convenient pickup locations are located right along the Wailua and Huleia Rivers, letting you jet off on your explorations in an instant. You’ll get a rundown of the hazards along the way, tips on paddling to your destination, and info on the hiking conditions if you’re looking to explore nearby waterfalls.
