The beauty and wonderous nature of being surrounded by Hawaiian culture, flora, fauna and wonderful people inspires us daily to share this mystical place with our guests. What?s your favorite part about your job? Knowing that I get to introduce the local culture to our guests and share it in a way that few ever experience in their lifetime. What makes your business stand out? The experience of [zip-lining] in, under and through the rain forest canopy, and gliding on Segways through real Hawaiiana tasting fruits and spices [to learn] about the wonders of the gardens and her history is an experience never to forget. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? There is a feeling that comes over our guests. One that interweaves peace and harmony with nature with the excitement and fun that comes from the adventures we offer. It is an amazing combination. What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer? Tears of joy from a woman that celebrated her 90th birthday by flying through the rainforest on the zip line. I am sure she will have a smile on her face on her last day from that memory.

The thought of going over the edge of a 250-foot waterfall usually inspires fear, but in the case of Skyline Eco Adventures, it stirs up exhilaration. This is because you never touch the water. Instead, you hang suspended far above its choppy surface on an expansive zipline. Throughout the seven-line course, guests appear to fly through the sky as they move through banana trees, sugar cane fields, and over two waterfalls, including the aforementioned 250-foot doozy, Kolekole Falls. Garnering a certificate of excellence in 2014 from TripAdvisor, the tour is made all the better by its experienced guides who put guests at ease with their local knowledge and good humor.
