This was one of the highlights of our Big Island trip and a nice change from all of the water activities. We did the 9-Line experience, and although the weather didn't cooperate for the "Dip" part of the "Zip and Dip" it was still a complete blast. They also refunded the difference in cost, since the Dip was cancelled. Helpful... More

This Zipline Adventure was perfect for our family. I have two kids 6 and 9 and they absolutely LOVED IT. Ryan did a great job with my 6 year old, these guys are bang on with what they offer and how they make you feel along the way. PERFECT! THANK YOU!

The Umauma Zip Line Experience was probably the highlight of our family trip to the Big Island. The weather did not cooperate when we went to Volcanoes' National Park. A light rain while zip-lining only adds to the thrills. Our guides were so much fun and extremely dependable. There just isn't a better site to fly over the tree canopies... More

We finished our trip to the Big Island with this Zipline! We did the 9 lines and really enjoyed them. The tandem lines were especially fun for my husband and son who like to be competitive. There were several very long lines which gave you a chance to really enjoy the views of the waterfalls and the coast as you... More

Great guides, beautiful setting, this was a wonderful experience. From the mom who started off terrified to the daredevil boy, everyone was happy. The people are super nice too. It is definitely worth the time and money.

Professional and friendly staff. Wonderful and Gorgeous views! The owner was on our tour and she was great. After zipping, you have to do the swim in the waterfall. It is well worth it! Our family had a great time and the kids said it was one of the top activities they did during our trip. Take the challenge and... More

What an awesome experience during our stay on the Big Island! We stayed in the Kailua- Kona area and made the just about 2 hour trip over to zip and dip at The Umauma Experience. It was worth it, the drive over is beautiful. Take the 190 route as it goes through the higher elevations on the island with some... More

Having ziplined before, we knew what we wanted: something kid-friendly, great views, diversity in length and speed, and tour guides that are worth a damn. We hit the jackpot, and it wasn't the most expensive place on the Island. They also allow you to zip upside down, if that's your thing (no one else does). Perfect way to spend a... More

When we got to Hilo, one of the first things my husband wanted to do was zipline. We talked to the ladies at our hotel (gotta' love Hilo Seaside!) and they said, "Umauma." We had a ball . The people there are great. $ wise it's on par with the other zips. Word or caution -- the turn off of... More

The Falls are great, but it is an expensive trip just for the Falls (price is reason I can't give it 5 stars). The part we enjoyed is the walk in the garden and the cool "graveyard for giving up fears". Its a really neat idea in a beautiful setting - don't miss that part!
