Website is down, phone is down, and email got bounced back. Sounds great, but in 2015 it's hard to do business with companies that go primitive!

This tour is fantastic. The adrenaline builds as you go from station to station. The guides are fantastic and very entertaining. The views are out of this world. Start out low and end up very high. When you are finished with the last zip line you just want to do it all over again.

The BIEA2 is located in the northern part of the Big Island, driving there was an adventure of its own, as we got to enjoy the sites of the town of Hawi. There were signs directing towards the location (though be warned the small road leading off the main road towards the tour main housing is a bit rough) and... More

If you are looking for an adventure on the Big Island, BIEA is the place to go! I have had some friends go to zipline at place with one or two lame runs. This is not the case at BIEA; they have eight ziplines of different heights, lengths, and speeds, and a fun suspension bridge. The views are amazing--waterfalls, canopy... More

Professional. Friendly. Entertaining. Educational. Positive.Just some of the ways I would describe the staff at BIEA in Kapaau. I am an experienced zipliner and let me tell you, these guys are top shelf. The front office handled details and made reservations and access simple and easy. Our guides, Ashley and Curtis, set the tone right away by interacting and connecting... More

This was truly one of the most enjoyable excursions my family experienced for the 14 days we were in Hawaii. We went to Kaui and Hawaii and the folks at BIEA were the absolute best. It began with the minute we walked in the door and were greeted with Aloha and our names. We did all the necessary paperwork and... More

It was a great experience, from the start booking with Courtney was a an easy experience, even when we had to switch our start time. She made every effort to accommodate us. Curtis and Ashly were excellent guides, they were funny, and made every effort to connect with each member of our group. They took time to educate us about... More

What a great time! 8 ziplines with more in the works. Many of the lines were over 1000' in length! A 60' suspension bridge over a gorge with waterfalls added to the excitement. A light lunch in an amazing tree house was very cool! What made our excursion so much fun were are guides...Curtis and Makani! These two were a... More

This ziplining tour was amazing. They currently have 8 ziplines and 1 suspension bridge and they are adding 2 more ziplines and 1 more suspension bridge shortly. The entire experience was so enjoyable. Even the car ride up to the first zipline was fun. The guides were the best I have ever seen. They were funny and knowledgeable about the... More
