“Wonderful time!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

We had a wonderful time on the zipline tour. While it is not for the those who are looking for adrenaline pumping thrills it is a very nice enjoyable time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The zip lines are through banana fields as you walk from line to line. You get to taste the apple bananas and some other fruit. The last 3 zip lines are the best as the others are very simple easy ones. This is a great 1st timer zip line experience. The last zip is over a beautiful waterfall although not actually Akaka Falls.

Thanks for the great review. It is always nice getting a review from users with a profile like yours.
We have to build up to that last line with the waterfall. Akaka Falls is at the state park just up stream from the falls we zip over, both spectacular views.

“Super”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Very much as advertised. Everyone we had contact with was very friendly and knowledgeable. You start off with short simple lines and work your way up to the last two lines that are just awesome! The last line over the falls is around 6/10th of a mile and by the time each person gets across, you can barely see them. Highly recommend!!

“Holy Cow!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The staff was great, the weather was warm and windy, The head wind was strong and we didn't go as fast as I'd like. The Akaka falls were beautiful, The weight of the Go cam made it a bit difficult to see- from with a baseball cap. It did turn out nicely though. No complaints just head wind.

Glad your video came out nicely and you got a warm day.
The head winds will slow you down a bit, but it makes for more time to take photos.

Thanks for the review!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The experience was definitely a highlight of the trip. The ziplines were felt very safe and our guides were also very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. The best part was the last two lines by far. If you are afraid of heights, don't worry - we all got over that fear once we were moving. It was awesome that they let you bring your own cameras and video cameras. If you do, just make sure you have a strap attached to the devices becuase you will have to strap them on to your harness as well. Bring a plastic bag or something in case it rains to protect your electronics. If you are wearing sunglasses or glasses, don't worry you can wear those too! As long as they fit securely on your face you are good to go. Overall a great experience!

“Amazing view of the Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

After doing the "Flight of the Gibbon" Zipline course in Chiang Mai, Thailand -- I must admit that after the first few lines, I was a bit nervous that this was an over priced beginner Zipline tour. Once we went over the smaller waterfall, I started getting excited when they let us know the last two lines were the best. They certainly made the best of the terrain and the final line over the falls was AMAZING. This line made it worth the price as did the amazing, professional and extremely kind/friendly staff. If you want to Zipline on the big island, I believe this is the only course with such an amazing view of a natural waterfall -- do not be worried by the beginner lines. If you are a beginner, rest assured that you will work your way up to an amazing and worthwhile experience. Thanks to Tony and the others for a great time on the big island!
