Akaka Falls Zipline tour offers an exclusive chance to experience zipping over a 250 foot waterfall, located just downstream from world famous Akaka Falls. The tour offers a 7 line course that traverses tropical farmland, waterfalls, and deep ravines. Each zipline progressively builds on the prior – in length and beauty – until you reach the ultimate breath taker, their final 2000′ zipline! The lush scenery, dramatic ocean views and world class guides will make this 2.5 hour tour one to remember for a life time. Water stations and a variety of fresh cut local fruits (sugarcane, bananas, guava, passion fruit) are offered at every other stop. Guides provide information about the history of the island, native plants.

After a 15-minute ride throughout the rainforest you arrive at Line 1 (Ua – Rain). This is an easy training line and if it is raining the lines are faster and the waterfalls will be rushing. Line 2 (Mai’a – Banana) crosses over local banana farms. Line 3 (Wai -Fresh Water) flies you over a 40 foot waterfall. after a short walk you arrive at Line 4 (Kalo – Taro), a longer line that  goes over a rainforest gulch. The landing of Line 5 (Ko – Sugarcane) provides panoramic views of the Hamakua coastline.  Line 6 (Pua‘a – Pig)  is a rush as you drop 200 feet into a ravine that is populated by wild pigs.

The final zip on Line 7 (Wailele – Waterfall) is the grand finale. You climb up to the take-off tower and are met with amazing views of the coast and the river below. Then you jump off and the beautiful 250 foot KoleKole waterfall comes into view – as you zip 450 feet above the sparkling pools below. This is a truly unforgettable experience – leaving you with an adrenalin rush that will keep you buzzing for days.
