There were 6 of us in group (age 8 to 40) and it was an amazing experience. The guide were awesome with high energy and did a great job. Zip line over water falls was an unforgettable experience.

It was my first time zip lining and I loved it. The staff were very accommodating to pick me up from Hilo airport, take me to Umama and then return me to my Hilo hotel. Booking staff in the cafe were efficient and friendly. I enjoyed the funny chatter with the crew taking us on our zip lines. They were... More

9 total zips across Hawaiian jungle ravines. Longest is 2,060 feet. Views are fabulous and the crew is great. We opted for the waterfall swim after zip lining. Great spot with a cool freshwater pool, fed by a 20' waterfall. I think the extra price for the water fall swim was a bit too high, but the experience was fun... More

This was a fantastic experience! Be sure to walk around the garden trail and try the strawberry guava fruit. We too used the coupon from the Big Island book we picked up at the airport.

We had done other ziplines in Hawaii before. This was the best zipline experience for scenery and thrill. Compared to others, Umauma has more dual lines. Also some of the lines were higher and longer than other companies. Scenery was pretty cool, especially the line over the gouge. Staff had told us to wait in an open area. The outdoor... More

It was a great experience and I am really happy we got to do it. There are 9 different lines, all fun, some bigger, some small, and the views are just amazing. Also, the team is very nice and fun! I could have stayed a couple of more hours. I would definitely do it again if I get the chance.

Our “Zip and Dip” exceeded every expectation. We had so much fun we went three times—yes, three times. We wanted to go again. Absolutely the best experience on the Big Island—we were on the island for a month. You are nuts if you don’t go! The place is owned and managed by great people who are passionate about everything—the owner... More

This was "my choice" of activities on our trip to the Big Island, and nobody else was overly excited about it - more nervous than anything about the 'safety' of zip lining! We had a BLAST. We were the last group of the day, at 2pm, and our group was small - only 6 of us. Funnily enough the other... More

I've traveled a lot, and I have never run into a more infectiously happy group of guides. They were obviously friends, kidding with one another and with us while still attending to our needs and questions. Their skills and antics during their own "flights" gave the feeling that they would be up there ziplining on their day off. They had... More

The ziplines were fast and demanding. The scenery was spectacular and delicious. The staff was encouraging and fun. The most memorable event of our trip to the big island.
