First time ziplining for myself and my 14 year old. Wonderful experience and the last two lines (6&7) are worth it. Safety is priority # 1 with this company and I never felt that I was put in any situation that I felt was unsafe. Our 2 guides, Gabe and Tony were funny, informative and just great to be around. Great company, great company and highly recommended...a couple of tips, you can sign up online and save 10% and they rent GoPro (50.00 i think) to record your trip down the lines...

This zipline adventure was superb! Not our first zipline experience, but definitely one of the best. The views were beautiful - We carried our own video camera and got some great pictures. Our guides (Damien and Gabriel) were fun in addition to being knowledgeable about the area (produce, climate, etc.). There was minimal physical exertion required. The equipment was up-to-date and safety standards were followed. The group we were with included a wide age-range (up to 80) and everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything about the trip! Oh, and the locally grown snacks along the way were delicious. This zipline experience through Skyline Eco Adventures - Akaka Falls is highly recommended and definitely worth repeating.

Dave and Ninoa (hope I spelled that right) were excellent guides, the course is on private property in the same area as Akaka Falls so you get to see some local produce being grown (and sample the local bananas in the field) while taking the platforms for the zip lines. The first one is very tame but by the time you get to the >3000 ft line at the end, you get progressively faster and more dynamic, the falls you zip over are incredibly beautiful, well worth the trip.
