Skyline Guide
“We had a great time with Jack(short for his real Hawaiian name) and Chris guiding us. They were awesome! Very patient and kind. The last two zips were first class. The rest were great and there was some good information about some of the local customs.”
“Perfectly arranged sequence of zip lines... from short and simple (to learn technique) to super long and picturesque! Guides Allen and Chris Lundy were delightful and highly attentive to safety.”
“Our guides were Jake and Chris and they were super friendly, funny, and reassuring (I am a scaredy cat). They took the time to explain everything and answer all of our questions.”
“Serge and Gabe were the BEST tour hosts we ever could have hoped for! These guys made the day a hundred times better—super funny, silly guys, but also really really informative. What a wealth of knowledge! We got so much more than we bargained for. ”
  • Where do we check in?

    Customers with serious neck, back, or joint injuries or chronic heart problems should use their own discretion about their capabilities to safely participate in this activity. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that anyone who has had recent surgery, especially on ankles, knees or their back, not participate in this tour. Although we try to always make customers comfortable both physically and mentally, some degree of impact on joints or some degree of customer anxiety about zipping is unavoidable.

  • How good of shape do I need to be in?

    Ziplining isn't strenuous, but you need to be able to hike about 1/2 mile and climb steps. We have had people from age 10 to 100 do the course without problems.

  • Do my parents or guardian have to zip with me if i'm under age 18?

ECOfabulous!
I can't even begin to share my enthusiasm about our experience...but I will try! First a shout out to our guides, Kaipo and Aka!!!!! They were so fun, safe, knowledgeable, and experienced we were in for a great time. This is definitely a five star company. They have thought of everything and have anything you might need in case you forgot it.

Holy WATERFALL!
This was a wonderful and thrilling experience- made GREAT by our guides Orion and Dustin! I'm not a thrill seeker by nature and somewhat afraid of heights, so having a few easy lines first to gain confidence...
07/25/16
Had an incredible experience
I was a first time zip-liner today and had an incredible experience. I went with some family members and they (as well as I) were a little nervous about what lied ahead. They start you off on a very easy line to get used to the feeling, and the guides do all of the hooking-up and unhooking for you so it is very easy and enjoyable. The lines get longer and more thrilling as you continue on.

Highlight of my trip to the big island
I zip lined with friends for the first time at Akaka falls on the 14th July and it was one of the highlights of my trip to the big island. To our guides Gabe and Chris T, thank you so much!
07/26/16
Amazing fun experience.
Amazing fun experience. Corey and Kolea worked extremely hard to make every second so pleasant and awesome. I am certain there is no zip line to top this one.
