We did the Zip and Dip combination and it was one of the best things we did during our vacation. We were all zipline novices and the friendly guides got us going and comfortable with the experience right away so that we could enjoy zipping and seeing the beautiful landscapes we rode above. Swim time at the waterfall area was... More

This adventure was one I will always remember. It was our first time on a zipline and our guides made sure we felt safe and comfortable. We had so much fun. The views were amazing. 9 lines in all, some over amazing waterfalls. Truly an amazing experience! Mahalo Umauma Experience!

We booked the Zip and Dip and got rained out. Our entire trip has been rain so that has been a bummer. But not giving up we re-booked when it looked like a possible partially clear day and I am so glad we did. This place is beautiful. It is a huge ranch with cattle, fruit trees and the zipline...

My family and I pre-booked the zipline adventure and are we ever glad we did! Having never ziplined before, My wife and two teenaged daughters and I quite looked forward to this. Like many things, location has a lot to do with the experience and wow, do they ever have the location! Sure, the ziplining is one thing but the... More

I went zipping and dipping with my 7 year old. The zipping part was totally awesome. The operation is very organized and well run, and the guys guiding it were great! The reason for the 'average' rating is for the Dipping part of the experience... Don't do it! Total ripoff and not worth the $100. First of all we waited... More

My boyfriend and I had never ziplined before, and I did a great deal of research on ziplining options on the big island before finally going with Umauma Experience. I'm SO GLAD we chose Umauma! We could not have been more pleased. The only drawback was that, due to recent heavy rain, the "dip" part of our experience was cancelled,... More

We had an amazing time on this zipline. We had ziplined several times in different countries and each one is a bit different. The views and experience at Umauma were great and we will do it all again when we return to HI. The grounds are clean and beautiful, the crew was great (picking fruit for us to try) making... More

We did the Zipline and the Swing. Both were amazingly fun for different reasons. The scenery on the zipline was beautiful. It was fun to ride tandem together and even my grandma who is 77 loved it. The swing was a thrill! The first 5 seconds think you can keep control of your face but you cannot. We were laughing... More

We took our 4 year old and 5.5 year old during our recent trip to the Big Island. Ziplining was definitely the highlight of their trip and possibly, ours too. We had 3 guides for a group of 17 and we had the youngest kids in the bunch. The guides were very helpful and patient with the kids and inspired... More
