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.

Other reviews had said the staff were friendly and helpful. We found this to be absolutely true. The instructors were encouraging, patient, friendly and had a sense of humour. They looked after the whole group, from my 13 year old daughter to an older couple with us. The zip lining was easily done, the dual lines a lot of fun... More

From the moment we drove in the parking lot we we're treated kindly and respectfully. They are very experienced in letting you let it all "Hang Loose" to say it in a Big Island way. You can rest assure this is a safe Umauma Experience! My wife, 60 and I, 61 enjoyed that we drove from Kona coast to Hilo... More

This was my first time ziplining and, while ziplining isn't as big of an adrenaline rush as skydiving or bungee jumping, it was still a fun experience. The staff will advise you how to make yourself go upside down if you need to add a little adventure to your ziplining experience. The scenery was beautiful and the staff was entertaining.... More

Big island is the perfect place to zip line. The staff a very friendly and relaxed yet very professional. We also opted for the zip and dip option and the dip did not disappoint either. Great rock jumping, waterfall and setting. If I go back to Hawaii I'll be going again!

My boyfriend and I had a WONDERFUL time ziplining at the Umauma Experience! Our "time" wasn't until 1:00 p.m.; however, we got there earlier than our check-in time and was asked if we'd like to go earlier. The scenery was breaktaking! The staff was so friendly, from check-in to our guides. I am 57 years old, and I cannot wait... More

Our family of four (including two kids, ages 6 and 7) had a great time ziplining at the Umauma Experience. First, the scenery is spectacular - apparently this is the only way to see the Umauma falls, which are a beautiful series of waterfalls cascading toward the ocean north of Hilo. Second, the guides were great - on two or... More
