Big Island Super Saver: Helicopter Tour plus Zipline Adventure

Zipline over a Waterfall on the Big Island

9-Hour Tour from Kona:
Your tour starts at Waikoloa Blue Hawaiian Heliport, where you’ll check in and board a comfortable, air-conditioned helicopter for the 2-hour flight across the Big Island of Hawaii. Feel your adrenaline pumping as you fly through columns of steam rising up from the volcanoes below, and then head north past Hilo into waterfall country, where you’ll soar over Rainbow Falls and Akaka Falls. On the way back to the heliport, travel past more waterfalls and over an active volcano covered in dried black lava.

After landing, enjoy a scenic drive to the zipline course, where the all-dual, 8-line zip course covers 2 miles (3.2 km) of tropical river gorges and features five suspension elements. Strap in and let your professional instructors guide you along one of the Big Island’s longest ziplines — more than 2,300 feet (700 meters) in length! As you fly through the air 160 feet (49 meters) off the ground, admire views of surrounding waterfalls and look for local wildlife.

When you’re back on the ground, enjoy a picnic-style lunch before being driven back to Kona (snacks and beverages are also provided throughout the day).

6-Hour Tour from Hilo:
The helicopter and zipline tour from Hilo features the same itinerary, but the helicopter flight is shorter and bypasses waterfall country for more time on the ziplines.

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Fantastic tour. Everyone was lovely to deal with, our helicopter pilot Caption Redbeard (alias Scott) was brilliant. We loved every minute of the helicopter ride over the volcanos and his knowledge was invaluable. Then a wander around Hilo, some lunch and then up to the ziplines. What a buzz. The guys Matt, Chris and Gavin rocked the lines, everything was fun, safe and the views were AWESOME! Had a ball. Everything was on time, we were looked after from the minute we touched down in Hilo until the time we flew back to Oahu! Thanks to everyone for a brilliant day - one we will remember for ever.

The helicopter tour was amazing and our tour guide John was the BEST!! The zipline was SO much fun too! Everybody involved in the day of activity was simply amazing, from our drivers who picked us up to our tour guides down to support staff. Everybody was amazing, friendly and professional.

This was a fabulous package and a great company to book with. It's a bit costly but was worth treating my two daughters and sister to our first time on the wonderful Big Island. Rick was our esteemed pilot - an ex Marine, we felt totally safe during our flight. He was very informative and open to all our questions. The zipline was great! The young staff were all very professional and extremely efficient - this was all our first time and we all had a blast! I've recommended this company to everyone I've talked to about this vacation.
Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Wow! This was an amazing trip from start to finish! The helicopter tour was phenomenal and the zipline was fun too. However, the best part was probably our pilot Dan who talked with us throughout the entire helicopter tour showing us so many wonderful things and explaining them so well (we had two children with us). He listened to our interests and focused the tour on those. It was a fabulous day - one none of us will ever forget. Well worth every penny!

OUTSTANDING! Super fun crew and beautiful landscape that you zip thru. Waterfalls, deep gorges and lush valleys. Awesome experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

Brilliant. You get a fantastic 2.5 hours time in the air; seeing the entire island (in 2 seperate flights which provides a nice break in flight times). The zip line was also a load of fun. Only advice: after the zip-line you're in Hilo with no specific agenda for a few hours before the 2nd leg of the flight. So I suggest you investigate options and plan something to do (even if only foregoing the zip-line lunch and having a nice meal/late lunch somewhere in Hilo)

This was our first trip to Hawaii and This Adventure Was Worth Every Single Penny. The Paradise Helicopter Pilot, Marco, was excellent, discussed everything, from what we were seeing and the locations' history. Minor turbulence was experienced once, but nobody was worried. The KapohoKine Adventure Tours took us to the 5th longest Zipline in the world. Amazing Ride and Super Safe Guides on the Lines! Greatly appreciated. The little kids (61lbs) with our group were so comfortable with the guides they were not afraid and even went down the lines first! When they didn't make it to the platform, the guides were retrieving them in moments. The Guides also were knowledgeable about the area and the history of the Big Island.

Absolutely a must do!! You will see some of the most amazing waterfalls and breathtaking views. Next time I come to the Big Island - I am Doing This Same Trip AGAIN!!
