What You Can Expect

Hilo Zipline over KoleKole Falls

Hike through the Forest

Your exciting zipline adventure takes place at near the Akaka Falls State Park on the Big Island’s beautiful Hamakua Coast, known for its lush botanical gardens and waterfalls.

Just north of Hilo, Akaka Falls State Park is home to Akaka Falls, located on Kolekole Stream. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by your professional zipline instructor and given a safety orientation. Once you’re strapped in, you’re ready to fly!

Soar over tropical greenery, cascading waterfalls, lush botanical gardens and diverse agricultural land. As you zip along, enjoy views of mountains and the beautiful Pacific Ocean off in the horizon.

You’ll travel on a 7-zipline course, which starts out mild and progressively increases in length and height, so that both thrill seekers and those who have never ziplined before can enjoy the thrills of ziplining. Each zipline is themed after an important staple in Hawaiian agriculture, and your guide will accompany and educate you along the way. You'll also get to sample some native Hawaiian fruits!

The grand finale is a zipline that reaches 3,350 feet (1,021 meters) in length – making it one of the longest ziplines in the country – and travels directly over a 250-foot (76-meter) waterfall!

This was my first time ziplining and I couldn't have asked for better place to try it. The guides were great and very reassuring about what the whole process. I would certainly do it again.

This was one of the coolest things we've done as a family. We have 2 teenagers and a pre-teen and everybody loved it!!! I am afraid of heights but the progression of heights and lengths and the beautiful scenery made me not even think about it. The guides were GREAT!!! They both grew up around Hilo so knew of the history of where we were ziplining. This was definately a highlight of our visit to The Big Island!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

The guides were great and I felt very safe and well informed about zipline safety. The scenery was beautiful and the waterfalls are breathtaking. I gave this 4 stars because there are several lines that are really for just moving you from one location to the next more quickly than hiking. The three lines that included canyons, rivers and waterfalls were outstanding.
