You’ll cross suspension bridges and fly over river rapids on this Hilo zipline tour.
Get ready for the ride of your life with the heart pounding, nonstop action of Kapohokine’s Hilo zipline tour! Soar, spin, scream, and zip across the fertile riverbanks, over waterfalls and rainforest, and catch mind-blowing aerial views of the biggest Hawaiian island!
Your adventure begins at the Hale Halawai, or “Meeting Place.” Here you’ll get situated with gear and a safety orientation, and you’ll greet your guides. The fun-loving crew will make everyone feel at ease and keep you safe. From here you’ll take off on the first lines across a suspended stairway. Catch amazing views of the coastline, volcano, Hilo Bay, and the old growth trees of the Hilo Forest Reserve. Marvel at the many distinctive shades of green in the Fern Forest. Watch for orchids and the famous ohia and koa trees.
This entire zipline course is unlike any other on the Big Island, because ALL lines are a side-by-side adventure! Race, take pictures, and fly to the finish line next to friends and family on these awesome parallel lines. Don’t worry about stopping – the newest technology allows a magnetic zip stop. This eases you into your stop with safety, comfort and consistency.
After your fourth zip, you have a chance to catch your breath and return to a resting heart rate. Guests can choose to have their lunch delivered to this peaceful spot in the forest. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, you can join your group in the walk-along journey. You can take the hiking trails up through the native Hawaiian rainforest up to this point as well, and watch the zippers shriek with glee across the misty waterfall. After you’ve regained your strength and composure, continue to four more awesome Hilo zipline cables across the waterfalls, river, and bubbling rapids below. Come spend the day outdoors with the adventurous crew of Kapohokine on this awesome eight line Hilo zipline course.
