Our first time could not have been better. Well-managed, very professional and guides who are friendly and fun. This is a beautiful location, with views of waterfalls, streams, and the ocean. The only physical requirement is climbing stairs, at the most 2-3 flights. You won't be disappointed.

OK, so we signed up for the Umauma zip line Experience, despite our fear of heights. Others who had similar fears reviewed this quite favorably so we thought, what the heck, let's overcome our fears and do it. However, the day before we were supposed to go, the weather forecast called for monsoon-like rains on this part of the island.... More

We visit Hawaii every year; this is our second visit to Umauma Experience (went last year); nine lines; miles of cable; astounding views; friendly and experienced staff; pointers on zipping upside down; step off platform backwards ("Leap of Faith"); reasonably priced; edible scenery; water and fruit stop halfway through; lots of laughter; fun all around; highly recommended!

This place was great. The staff were friendly and very professional. They took great care of us, and everything felt extremely safe! And the views that we zipped over were absolutely stunning. I would also recommend adding on the "Swing Ride" at the end. Very scary, but worth the thrill!

Loved every minute of it. The staff was very patient with my youngest daughter, who was having a hard time with the height. She ended up not being able to do most of the zip lines but got to hang with the aunties at registration and have popcorn and shave ice. She said it was the best trip ever (:

We had a very bad first impression of this company. We followed our GPS to the listed address and it didn't take us to the meeting point. We called and were given incorrect directions that sent us further away from the location. Upon arriving 15 minutes before our appointment we were told by the receptionist that we were late and...
