This activity will end right where it started.
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 zip lining. Our guides, Emma and David were really great. They gave us plenty of Hawaii information about plants and such also.

Okay but better ones in the area

The guides who took us were nice however the zip lines were not as advertised. Most of them were short and over fields. We thought they were more over or in the tropical forest. Okay for a first time experience if you never gone. The waterfall we saw was cool however after being there. There are other zip lines that were better and in the tropical forest and also had tandem lines.

Aloha, Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. As described in our product description our lines start off small and gradually increase in length and height working our way up to our 1/2 a mile long line that zips 250ft over a 250ft waterfall! We are not sure how our product could be viewed as not as advertised as all of our photos used are of our zipline course. And in our description, say our lines zip over agricultural land which include bananas other tropical crops, as well as valleys and waterfalls. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your guides, they are the best! Thank you for joining us and we hope you have a great rest of your Hawaii Vacation! Mahalo!

The experience was great! We’ve been ziplining so many times in many different countries and places and this is one of the best views yet. The first few lines are intro/beginner level…and they explain that. The last two lines are long, beautiful and amazing. They make it all worth it. Bring your phone/GoPro to take your own selfies during the zip. I loved the guides’ humor, which made it all more fun. They also give you some history of the area and explain the plants and flowers along the way. I felt very taken care of during the whole experience. Totally recommended! (Too bad my pics aren’t loading bc they are awesome)

Our experience with Big Island Zipline was so much fun. Our guides were hilarious and we always felt safe. It was our first time so we were nervous, but we were comforted and assured that safety was first. We will be back.

My husband and I got lost in the way here and arrived late to our zip lining session, however the manager was great and drove us up to catch up with our group. The view and zip lines are AMAZING! Our tour guides were also great! I think it was Jack and Jamie! Loved them! ❤️

All my family members had a great fun, and this zipline exceeded our expectation with great ocean view and long ziplines over the waterfall. Guides were so kind and professional. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves an adventurous experience.

Lack luster zips
Amye_S

The three guides: Alyssa, Emma and Byron were the best thing about this tour. They were awesome! The zips however were much to be desired. There were 7 zip lines and the only one worth anything was the last one by the waterfall. I would recommend this for people afraid of ziplining because it’s very timid. As I said the guides were the most enjoyable thing.

Aloha and thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the ziplines. As its states in our description, the tour was designed for all levels of zipline experience. The ziplines start off small and gradually increase in length, height and speed. Ending with our last line reaching 1/2 a mile above a 250ft private waterfall! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your guides! They are great! We hope you enjoy the rest of you stay on the island. And thank you for joining us.

The pictures make it look like you are zip lining over lush rainforests when in reality you are zip lining over fields. Disappointing

Aloha, and thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you felt misled by our product photos. However, all the photos we use are of our zipline course. We have ziplines that soar over large jungle valleys with rivers and waterfalls below and have some that see more of the agriculture. We appreciate you taking the time to join us and hope you will give us another try soon!

Ziplining over the Kole Kole Falls was an AMAZING experience and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. The 6 zip lines leading up to the kole kole falls gave everyone good practice so by the time we got to the 7th line which is a half mile long, it wasn’t an issue for anyone (we were all just waiting to see the falls)!! The 6 zip lines before were also very beautiful but it’s just so hard to talk about those after you’ve gone over Kole Kole Falls!! Vince and Joseph were our guides and they did an excellent job and we’re funny too!! I’m a mom and normally worry quite a bit, but I really enjoyed the experience. Tip: if you want to take a video with your phone while ziplining, make sure to bring a camera holder that you wear around your neck!

I wasn't able to go due to illness. Niece caught Covid and it went down the line. 😰☹️ Viator was Wonderful in giving me back my money. I cannot thank them enough. Believe Me, I'd Rather Have Been there! 😁😁The others that made it said it was WONDERFUL! They did wish the Zipline was longer and that you had two cords instead of just one to ride on.. just for better safety. Other than that, It Was Amazing! I cannot wait to come back so I can do it! Love Hawaii!!

This was a wonderful adventure! It rained on us the entire time, but it was never cold nor any less fun. We were able to see both waterfalls as well as some wildlife! Our guides, David and Monique, were funny and informative. This course is perfect for anyone— it had beginning lines that helped reassure my boyfriend, who had no previous experience, and it also had an amazing payoff with the final two lines for me, who had been ziplining before. Plenty of opportunities for pictures. We never felt left behind or rushed by our guides. Worth it!
