What You Can Expect

Hilo Zipline over KoleKole Falls

Hike through the Forest

With its thundering waterfalls, deeply carved valleys, and verdant, tropical rainforest, Hilo is the perfect place to go ziplining and soar across the sky. This Hilo zipline tour takes place not far from Akaka Falls State Park, and features a dramatic aerial view of Kolekole Falls. This section of the Big Island, along the Hamakua Coast, is known for its beautiful botanical gardens and abundance of cascading falls. Experiencing the scenery from up in the air is an adventure you’ll never forget.

This Hilo zipline course spans seven lines, and also features views of the Pacific Ocean from up on the mountainous ridgelines. The course is designed for all comfort levels, as the first line is the shortest which then build up from there. Even if you’ve never been zipling before or have gone a dozen times, there are views, thrills, and heart-stopping moments that all different skill levels can enjoy. Additionally, each of the lines are named after a traditional staple of Hawaiian agriculture, and your guide will offer historical insight on native Hawaiian culture, as well as teach you sustainable practices that are still important to this day. You’ll even get to sample some tropical Hawaiian fruits while walking between the lines.

Finally, having already successfully crossed six lines, the pièce de résistance is the final line that is believed to be one of the longest ziplines in the country. As if the length isn't dramatic enough, you’ll soar right over a 250-foot (76-meter) waterfall while zipping between the two ridgelines, with the cobalt waters of the Pacific Ocean completing the view.

Fantastic! Kuma and Kelton were great guides. I analyzed everything as safety was a concern and I felt extremely comfortable with the equipment and lines. It really was thrilling and the scenery was spectacular.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

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!

Lisa M

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.
