Coral Flyer, Island-Island Zipline (back dated to 29 July 2014)

Flying fox, I have tried flying across tall trees many times but this is my first time flying across islands. And now, I'm proud that Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia has the World's Longest Zipline across Islands. To start this trip, you need to sail to Sapi Island from Jesselton Point and register yourself there. For your information, the fee to go out to the islands has increased in recent years. We paid RM 28 (price per person) for the return boat ticket for local tourist including conservation park fee and make sure that you negotiate with them to get this price. Upon arriving at Sapi Island, register yourself at the counter. Ticket per person is RM 50! After paying, you will sail across to Gaya Island, the starting point with a small boat. There, they will set the kits up for you and you are ready to FLY FLY FLY! =)

 Gaya Island, the starting point!

The thin thin zipline across the 2 islands 

 For some read up while waiting for others to sign the consent.

Everyone is ready to FLY now!!! 

But selfie first =p and we are "lucky" number one to go so that we can take pictures for others while they are flying across =( 

About 100 meters hike to reach here... 

Another group picture before everyone set on the line to fly! 

See, you are flying across this path.. I believe that it will be nicer if the sky is much clearer 

Here comes group 2! =) 

It seems this braking system cost about RM 200,000! 

Group 3 is here... =) 

"What a fast ride, 10 seconds for RM 50!" =p

End of trip.

Just some advise. Operating time is from about 10 am till 3-4 pm, provided the weather is good! Maximum weight is 120 kg, exceeding that will not be allowed. Consent to be taken when you register. Make sure that you don't hold anything while you are flying and keep everything is inside your bag. Zip your bag up because the brake is a bit hard when your reach, something may slip out if you don't zip up your bag. Slippers can be tied to your waist before you fly! =)

Enjoy and have a nice day. =)
