To be among the best, you need to train with the best. We think our zip line guides are among the best in Hawaii, maybe even the world. We’ve been ranked the #1 zip line tour operator on Maui for consecutive years, and we know we have our guides to credit. After all, it is they who make sure our guests are comfortable, informed, and smiling.
But being a zipline guide is a tough job, and it takes a special kind of person to do it. So we thought we’d share a little “inside look” at what it takes to become a zipline guide. We pick applicants who are friendly, courteous, and eager to share their joy of ziplining with others. The job also requires an intensive 4-6 week training program, where guides learn the ropes (pun definitely intended) and also learn about the private land we operate on. This program produces a professional zipline guide who is reverent as well as skilled.
Take a look at what others are saying on Trip Advisor and you’ll see what we mean. Our guides get lots of fan mail (and even a few love letters!) which lets us know we’re doing our job well. This week, we’ve got a new crew of trainees and we’re as excited as ever over their talent and potential. Our veteran guides are showing them the ropes as we speak, and soon they’ll join the ranks among what we feel is the world’s best zipline team.
We hope you come by and see for yourself! Book your own zipline tour on Maui or Oahu, and be assured that when you meet your guide, you’re meeting someone special – someone who was hand-picked to begin training based on their natural potential – and who completed training because of their winning attitude, knowledge, and super-duper skills!
