Zipline through and above the tree tops of North Kohala's eucalyptus forests, the historic place where Hawaii's first King Kamehameha was born!
Beyond the black lava fields and bright green country-side of Kohala, perched high among the towering trees of ancient Halawa, is an exciting zipline course where aerial platforms are built onto the trees! Look down upon bubbling gulches, fragrant flower and fruit trees and take in the tranquil sounds of this remote mountain forest reserve. This award-winning canopy course features five elevated suspension bridges and nine thrilling ziplines, up to the loftiest platform at 140 feet above the forest floor. Friendly and expert guides love to share stories of the area and keep groups small at five guests to a guide, for unmatched enjoyment and safety.
We were lucky as the weather was cool and cloudy, but did not rain. Our guides were terrific. We had our "safety" talks and felt very comfortable with the safety harness and double clips used. Our party had ziplined before in Colorado and Costa Rica, so we had comparisons. Our guides were entertaining, knowledgeable and very patient. We did see wildlife - a hawk and of course, the mongoose. We did not want it to end.

This was by far our favorite part of visiting Hawaii for the first time. It was a total rush but we also felt completely safe wit...h our extremely competent guides, Mattie and Jeramiah. Highly recommended. We have a slight fear of heights but the guides made us feel completely comfortable and we had so much fun! If you're going to zip line in Hawaii, definitely use this company! Thanks again for an amazing experience, Kohala Zipline! more

My husband and I loved this zipline adventure. We loved Hawaii but this just made the trip perfect. I had never done it before (my... husband had) and to be honest I will a little bit scared but as soon as we started I had so much fun. Our guides were amazing. So fun, friendly and careful. We participated along with a family of 5 (3 children and their parents). They had so much fun too! I HIGHLY recommend everyone try this. The lines are safe, the views are spectacular and it will really make your vacation special! more

My husband and I spent a lot of money on activities to do while we were on the Big Island, and the zipline was worth every single ...penny!!!!! Our guides were nothing short of amazing! They knew so much about the history and it was amazing how much they did know and pointed things out to us! We had the best experience and I would highly recommend ziplining and using Kohala zipline Canopy Adventure! Our instructors, Matt and Ashley, let us have fun and also taught us to be safe. I can not say this enough.....best time of my life! more
Best experience ever. I was apprehensive once faced with the challenge, but the guides were awesome and very caring individual. W...ill definitely do it again. Thank you Chris Guzman and Cassie See you next time! more
Had a great time! Learned a lot about the environment and other tidbits along the way to and during the zip line. The safety lec...ture was very thorough. Brett and Rogan were very informative, friendly, knowledgeable, and funny throughout the day. We took a couple of our friend's young teenagers and we all had a great time. Would definitely do it again when we visit again. Thanks for an awesome day Brett and Rogan! more
My wife and I were looking to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in a special way and this was the perfect activity to make me...mories. Our zipline guides, Micah and Rog, too great care of us and made the entire experience outstanding and really fun! more
So many things make this the best zip line on the big island including NINE zips, the last one a tandem AND over 1100 ft long but ...the absolute best part was the tour guides Kalei and Kalani. In fact, Kalani was our ATV tour guide 4 years ago when we were last there. They made this a very fun adventure and encouraged my hubby who was fearful of heights; even he loved it, after the first one! Truly amazing scenery and very fun, patient, and experienced guides. Safety was definitely a priority for them but made our adventure extra special. Thank you Kalei and Kalani!!! more

This was a very good Zipeline with great guides. Ziping through the trees is a great experience and beautiful views.
Our group of 6 people had a great time zipping thru the trees . the 2 guides were very knowledgeable and always safety conscious.
We had a great time, the guides were friendly and the equipment was well maintained. I would do it again.
This was the best experience and the guides made me feel so safe with their knowledge. This was a highlight of my trip I would def...initely do it again with them! more
My entire family had a blast zip lining through the tree canopies! Chris and Cassie were our guides and they were hospitable, inf...ormative and patient. It was our first time zip lining in such an environment-hundreds of feet in the air and we felt completely comfortable and confident in their hands. They provided us with water and snacks midway and at the conclusion of our adventure, including freshly picked bananas! They shared knowledge about the vegetation and geographical landmarks, as well as, insight into local eateries! Not only did we enjoy the various zip lines, but there were also suspension bridges and a final rappel to the ground. You also get to ride in a really cool armory jeep of some sort as you travel to and from the excursion. It surpassed our expectations and we were so glad to have chosen that adventure during our travels on The Big Island. more
