Make your way to the family-owned Kualoa Ranch, a working cattle ranch in the sacred Ka'a'awa Valley. The windward side of the island, where the ranch is located, has a very different landscape than the beaches of Waikiki and is ripe for exploration. The cliffs, beaches and thick rainforest have made up the backdrop for many blockbuster films like Pearl Harbor and Jurassic Park. Meet your experienced adventure guides for a short orientation, then get fitted with your safety equipment. Take off over the series of fourteen ziplines, each named for a culturally significant aspect of the Ka'a'awa Valley and ranging in length from 200 feet to 1/4 mile (.4 km). The course has an automatic braking system, so all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the ride. Fly through the forest and across burbling natural streams. Cross several suspension bridges and learn about the local plant and animal life from your guide along the way. Embark on a couple of short treks along nature trails, each about 5 minutes in length, as your guide points out Hawaiian medicinal plants and describes their ancient traditional uses.
This was our favorite tour we did on our trip. Our guides, Amy, Jesica, and Kayleen were wonderful. They were so much fun. Our driver, Kevin, who took us to the base camp where our tour began was full of information about the ranch and all the filming they do there. It was like doing 2 tours. We would love to go back again.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is considering it. Our driver Jaron, who took us up to zipline platform, was fun and nice. He pointed out areas where certain movies were made and gave us a brief history of the Kuala Ranch. On arriving to the main area we were greeted by our guides Jacki, Went I know there is a story behind his nickname and Mark. They took us through putting on our harnesses correctly with a few laughs from how snug they had to be. I had my GoPro with me and had planned on wearing the harness over my helmet but Jacki provided me a helmet that had a snap on feature for GoPro cameras. This was definitely a plus for me. They told us we would be traveling to seven platforms to zipline from which varied in length. Our group was small with only five people Tracy and Cody, Steph and Luke and myself which made conversation with everyone easy. First platform they instructed us what and what not to do when traveling down the line and then they asked for one us to start off the group. Since I had been looking forward to this I didn't hesitate to go first. From that moment on I looked forward to the next zipline. Through out the tour Jacki, Went and Mark were fun and even had us laughing at ourselves. When we were done our guides were gracious enough to pose for a few pics. I would definitely do this again and recommended it to any at the hotel, where I was staying, to anyone who was interested.
Thanks again to the best guides. Jacki, Went and Mark who made my first experience Ziplining a great memory.
Good fun, great scenery, really nice guides who made this a great experience and a great day. Be aware that this is more of a family zip-line experience without the lines being terribly high at all. This is not a tree-top zip-line experience so look elsewhere if you are looking for something more challenging. That being said, everyone can have a bit of fun doing this and can participate - even the scaredy cats. Thanks for making this fun guys.
