What You Can Expect

Best Big Island Kohala Canopy Zipline Adventure

Big Island Kohala Canopy Zipline Adventure

From the moment you begin your aerial adventure at the Kohala zipline park in Kapaau, you will be enthralled by the unspoiled beauty of Kohala, the northernmost region of the Big Island. Perched among lofty trees, this exciting canopy park features soaring tree platforms, five elevated suspension bridges and nine thrilling ziplines. A total course length of 4,580 feet (1,395 meters) and height of 140 feet (42 meters) ensure that this adrenaline-rushing experience will be the highlight of your Hawaii vacation.

Safety is the top priority – courses are inspected twice daily, the guide-to-guest ratio is a maximum of 1:4, and you have the ability to choose the speed and orientation of your zipline. Exclusive features, such as the twin WhisperLines, ensure you’ll hear the sounds of the forest, and not the sound of metal on metals from the ziplines.

This was alot of fun!!! Our ziplining guides - John and Ashley - were really wonderful, helpful and entertaining. I felt totally safe with the two of them at either end of the zip line. The views of the forest floor were quite beautiful and not too blurry, considering that we could reach speeds of up to 60km/hr. The scariest part, for me, was the 5 suspension bridges and being able to see the ground below my feet as I stepped from board to board - even though I was securely clipped onto the line - I took my time - my teenage daughter traversed the bridges like a little monkey. John was the photographer for our group - but you can bring your GoPro along as long as you can strap it to yourself securely and don't mind letting go of the handle bar of your steering gear to take a video of your zipping.

Great zipline experience. The staff and guides were fantastic. They were fun but most importantly very attentive to safety and helped each individual in the group as required. Pretty setting and a very local feel to the town.

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our thrilling, yet very safe, Zipline adventure with our experienced, professional and humorous guides Liesel and BooBoo. Although the rope bridges were a little unsettling for some, they were overshadowed by the beautiful scenery and complete exhilarating Zipline experience. Top marks and 5 stars to the Kohala Zipline crew. Thank you for a great morning and we'll definitely be back for another round of fun next time we're on the Big Island. Loved It!!

Our Son who is 9 yrs old and has ADHD and ASD did not want to take that first step off to zip. Our two guides, Tim and Dave, were caring, calm, and excellent when dealing with him!
We were not rushed and truly enjoyed the beautifully exciting zip course!
