Flying high on Maui with Kapalua Adventures

On our visit to Maui last weekend, the family headed to Kapalua to check out the buzz surrounding the new zipline adventures there. Kapalua Adventures is the outfit behind the excitement and I had a blast with my mom Lynn, brother Jon, and his girlfriend Sarah on the Upper Mountain Loop zip tour. I’ll let the following video speak for itself, but the scenery was incredible, our tour guides were fun to hang out with for 3.5 hours, and the ziplines were exhilirating.

In total, we did four runs.  Including one at 2,500 feet.  We also walked the longest suspension bridge in Hawaii (the thing in the video that looks like the Golden Gate Bridge).

You’re probably wondering where Nate was on this trip, right? Afterall, he set the whole thing up with is friend Adam Quinn, Kapalua Resort’s director of VIP relations. Well, he took one for the team and watched Ensen for the morning. But word is they had fun with Adam playing disc golf, enjoying the mini-golf course, and driving around the resort in a golf cart. There’s obviously a lot to do at Kapalua.

It’s always fun as a local to play tourist and do these activities. I’m glad I had the chance to experience this side of Maui with my family and would do it again in a heartbeat. Here’s a few more pictures I took while up on the mountain.

    No ziplining for me anytime soon. Just taking the lift up to Grouse Mt. and walking the Capilano Suspension Bridge in B.C. was exciting enough. This is something Ensen’s Kona Grandpa might enjoy.
