Kohala Zipline - Kohala Zip & Dip
This Big Island zipline adventure includes zipping across a total of 9 lines and crossing 5 suspension bridges, plus rappelling from a tree. Plus, you’ll have the chance to swim under a tropical waterfall! The Kohala Zipline is located on the scenic northern tip of the island, near the town of Hawi. The zipline course is built right into the jungle and features soaring tree-top platforms. While zipping you’ll enjoy plenty of spectacular views of natural streams, lush vegetation and ancient taro terraces.
After your zipline tour, you’ll travel to a scenic lookout point at Pololu Valley, where you’ll be served a delicious deli lunch. Then get ready for a short nature walk along a private trail that leads to a waterfall, where you’ll have the option of having a refreshing dip. This is truly one-of-a-kind island adventure!
