What To Expect

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.

Great Adventure
Janet_A, Apr 2024
Amazing zip over waterfalls. Crew fun but very safety conscious. Beautiful sites along the way. There was a light rain but in no way limited the experience.
Aixa_R, Apr 2024
We had an amazing time! The place was easy to locate and very clean. The staff were very attentive and professional. It was rainy day and it nice to see they had rain jackets for everyone. Our guides took their time in insuring we were safely secured and doing their safety checks. Highly recommend! The final Zipline was breathtaking!
Exhilarating experience
Gabriel_L, Apr 2024
They did an awesome job with the ziplining infrastructure, safety measures, preparation, and the actual guide throughout the process. The guides were super friendly, informative, and caring about the safety of everyone, and helped all for the maximum enjoyment. The increasing level of lines with length, height, and duration made it easy to get acclimated to the process, and the ultimate 1/2 mile line was extremely fun and exhilarating. Kudos to the company and the guides! My son and I had so much fun!

We came here on a post-chemo trip. This zip line tour was thrilling and beautiful. But still easy enough to do without much skill. The guides were funny, personable and very professional. They always kept a smile on our faces. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to my friends.
Great tour!

Great Experience With The Family
Jeremy_S, Mar 2024
We had a blast on the zipline tour! Great zipline for kids who have never done it before. The tour starts with short/slower runs and work their way up to fast long runs (1/2 mile long). The tour warmed/familiarized our kids up to ziplining and we were off to the races. We had Abby, Ryle, and Hanna as our guides. They were awesome! We had a daughter who had sunburn on her bottom and hands- Abby was very gentle when helping her get her equipment on and fitted. It was very much appreciated! Ryle was the entertainment for the group with his comments/jokes ("Hawaiian short necked giraffe"- lol) . Again- we had a blast on our tour :)
Breathtaking views

Erika_E, Mar 2024
Amazing tour!!! The crew made it so easy to enjoy zip lining. The gear and process was top notch. I’ve zip lined in other countries and I felt much more secure with this company. If you have never zip lined before, this is an awesome crew to start with. Views are stellar. A huge shout out to the crew for their advice, knowledge, and sarcasm. They really put you at ease and allow you to fully enjoy the experience.
Loved every minute!
Sarah_R, Mar 2024

They made the entire experience exciting and enjoyable! The falls were gorgeous and I’m so happy I could see them this way!
