    What to Expect
    Make your way to Hakalau's Umauma Falls Zipline Experience, voted “Best Zipline in East Hawaii” by the Tribune Herald for six years in a row.

    After a safety briefing it’s time to gear up and get ready for the 2-hour, 9-line course. Soar above waterfalls, enjoy aerial views of the spectacular Umauma River, and zip over treetops — including a lush tropical fern grotto.

    In addition to the four dual ziplines and five single lines, the course features a 200-foot suspension bridge above the river, right where it flows through a 2,000-year-old lava tube.

    Savor Big Island and Pacific Ocean scenery throughout this thrilling adventure.

    We chose the 11:00 time because you have to be there 45 minutes in advance (seemed unnecessary, by the way!). Obviously the earlier you go, the cooler it will be. However, there are covered places (wall-less, but covered to... More

    Transport can be arranged from Hilo but not the kona side. I would call them to ask. They were very helpful with our group!
