  • Zip over stunning scenery near the Hamakua Coast
  • Dramatic aerial views of Kolekole Falls on the Big Island
  • Professional instruction and all necessary equipment
What to expect
  • With its thundering waterfalls, deeply carved valleys, and verdant, tropical rainforest, Hilo is the perfect place to go ziplining and soar across the sky. This Hilo zipline tour takes place not far from Akaka Falls State Park, and features a dramatic aerial view of Kolekole Falls. This section of the Big Island, along the Hamakua Coast, is known for its beautiful botanical gardens and abundance of cascading falls. Experiencing the scenery from up in the air is an adventure you’ll never forget. This Hilo zipline course spans seven lines, and also features views of the Pacific Ocean from up on the mountainous ridgelines. The course is designed for all comfort levels, as the first line is the shortest which then build up from there. Even if you’ve never been zipling before or have gone a dozen times, there are views, thrills, and heart-stopping moments that all different skill levels can enjoy. Additionally, each of the lines are named after a traditional staple of Hawaiian agriculture, and your guide will offer historical insight on native Hawaiian culture, as well as teach you sustainable practices that are still important to this day. You’ll even get to sample some tropical Hawaiian fruits while walking between the lines. Finally, having already successfully crossed six lines, the pièce de résistance is the final line that is believed to be one of the longest ziplines in the country. As if the length isn't dramatic enough, you’ll soar right over a 250-foot (76-meter) waterfall while zipping between the two ridgelines, with the cobalt waters of the Pacific Ocean completing the view.

Great experience!!!
The staff was amazing and made you feel comfortable and staff the entire time.
Shout out to Cassie, Josh, and our driver David! They were fantastic. You go from Zipline to Zipline with little wait time. I was nervous to go but I'm so glad I did!

First Zipline - Won't Be My Last
Sep 2021
I went ziplining for the first time on a recent trip to Hawaii, and my trip was with Hawaii Zipline Tours. I loved it! The staff was very professional, knowledgeable about what we were seeing, and fun. Even better for me, who is afraid of heights, the seven zips go from short and low to long and high, so I was able to build up my confidence before the beautiful final run. You are partially in farmland, and it’s great to see some Hawaiian plants and flowers up close while waiting for your turn. And the two waterfalls on the course are beautiful.

I was a bit nervous, never having done this before. But our guides were absolutely amazing and had us all feeling like pros in no time. The views were spectacular, the commentary witty and informative, and the customer service unparalleled! I would gladly take this adventure tour again and again. SUPERB!

On the bucket list! Check!!
They took us from inexperienced to total pros by the end! Even had an elderly couple that had an awesome time! An added bonus is the guides knowledge of the local flora and fauna! Ask about the Ice Cream Beans!!!! Totally worth it and look forward to my next trip back! Aloha!

Amazing Zipline experience
An amazing Zipline experience! Vince and Monique were very fun and knowledgeable guides. The ziplining was very organized and safe. The tour took us through a lush privately owned farm with various tropical crops to view and learn about. The last few lines are long, above rivers and waterfalls with breathtaking views. Highly recommended!

Breathtaking zipline tour!
Sep 2021
We had an amazing adventure on this zip line tour! It was my first time ziplining so I was a bit nervous, but it turns out that there is absolutely no reason for nerves. Our tour guides Josh and David are really down to earth and made our experience fun and informative! This zipline experience is great for anyone who has never ziplined before. Each line gets longer so that you are more comfortable by the time you get to the last two, which are breathtaking!
Don't bother to bring a backpack or bag, they have fanny packs to hold all of your items and it goes around your waist so that you can be "hands free." The last zipline over KoleKole Falls was exhilarating and breathtaking! When we go back to the Big Island with our kids (16 yr. old & 18 1/2 yr old), we will definitely take them to the Hilo Zipline over KoleKole Falls! This first time zipline experience has set the stage for me to be confident in going ziplining and I am so thankful we booked this tour! Thank you Josh and David for making this such an enjoyable and memorable experience :)

Perfect Afternoon
Oct 2021 • Couples
Our two guides, Jake and Josh made this such an entertaining adventure. They are hilarious! Great instructors who kept us safe and shared their knowledge of the area. Gorgeous views of canyons, waterfalls, and the ocean. Make sure to use the mosquito repellent they provide. We also took their advice and got Shaved ice at Ed’s Bakery, walking distance. It was the perfect afternoon for our first trip to the big Island.

Going on the ziplines. Come prepared to have fun. The layout is very easy and the walking was easy an mainly flat. Some steps at each zipline landing. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly.
