Skyline Eco Adventures was founded in 2002 by a father and son team who wanted to share their love for the outdoors with others, but do it in a way that was new and exciting. They also wanted to highlight the importance of preserving Hawaii’s fragile environment. However, it wasn’t all bells and whistles. In fact, when Skyline Eco Tours first opened, they only served 6 customers during their first month. That’s definitely changed now…
That’s why Business Day with Terry Bradshaw looks at Skyline Eco Tours, a growing company focused on both outdoor adventure and conservation. The company has grown from a small single-site tour, to having multiple locations on Hawaii and franchising their brand to places around the world.

Business Day on their Conservation Programs
Finally, Business Day TV with Terry Bradshaw looks at the conservation program that Skyline Eco Tours has created. Skyline Eco Tours was founded on the mission of providing an exciting means for people to see the natural wonders of Hawaii, while always aiding in the preservation and perpetuation of the island’s unique land and culture.
That’s why Skyline Eco Tours has joined the 1% For The Planet Initiative, a group of businesses committed to giving at least 1% of all sales back to the environment. Skylines donation program gives significant financial support to numerous non-profits and support groups that are unique to each Zipline operator’s location.
By dedicating funds to the local communities in which they operate, Skyline Eco Tours knows that the money used is supporting the same natural and cultural resources they are seeing on their tour.
Furthermore, Skyline Eco Tours committed to make all tours and adventures Carbon Neutral. Skyline Eco Tours strives to reduce its carbon emissions and whatever cannot be eliminated is offset through purchases of the Carbon Fund. By operating carbon free, Skyline Eco Tours doesn’t contribute to the growing problem of Global Warming.
