Ziplining pioneers Buck and Danny Boren founded Skyline Eco-Adventures in 2002 to both share and sustain the natural beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. The father-son team built their first zipline course minutes from Haleakala National Park, providing stunning canopy views of the forest without the ecological impact of leading vehicle-based tours or installing a series of escalators. They strung lines over fragrant eucalyptus groves and even constructed a treetop rope bridge. Of particular note: the up-and-back "pendulum line," which reaches speeds of up to 45 mph.
From there, they went island-hopping. Skyline Akaka Falls zips above a 250-foot waterfall, while Skyline Kauai shows off the seascapes and beaches of the southern shore. As they've expanded, the duo have increased the amount they invest into preservation. They donate 1% of all proceeds to environmental-preservation efforts, and have made all tours and services they offer completely carbon-neutral, which means they've figured out how to avoid consuming fossil fuels better and hold their breath longer.
Skyline's suite of tours is designed for zipliners of all ages and experience levels and was named the #1 Land Activity/Adventure Tour Company in Hawaii by TripAdvisor, as well as winning their TripAdvisor Hall of Fame Excellence award.
A journey around the world, testing and traversing the waters of many lands, eventually brought the husband-and-wife owners of NeverDry Divers to Hawaii. Mike and Jen got their first taste of professional scuba training on the island of Koh Tao in Thailand, where they discovered their love for diving and underwater videography. Searching the globe for a new land to develop their skills, they ended up in Bocas del Toro, Panama, where they earned their PADI instructor licenses, married, and had a son. Not long after their son was born, they headed to Hawaii, where they now provide basic to advanced scuba instruction and lead underwater excursions around the beautiful coastline.
Setting off from launch points at Maui's scenic Makena beaches, guides of Aloha Kayaks Maui escort their clients on kayaking, snorkeling, and paddleboarding adventures. During the tours,
paddlers can get up-close glimpses of Hawaiian green sea turtles or, during certain months, humpback whales in migration.
Though each tour has its own starting point and duration, they all have an educational orientation. Between oar strokes and staring contests with dolphins, guests can learn about ocean and land ecology, local culture, and responsible eco-tourism.
