Your Big Island zip lines tour through and under the canopy of the rain forest trees is accomplished without harming the beauty visitors to the area desire to enjoy! Trees nearby the tour are pruned of dead limbs and are in better care now than before the zip line tour was installed.
Our Big Island zip lines run above and through the rain forest canopy, not just across open fields on towers. Fly above the Honopueo stream with its little waterfalls, beautiful pools, and flowering trees. Zip between old growth trees almost close enough to touch. As you walk between zips, you will see exotic plants in our gardens and listen to botanical talks by our guides. At the end of your Zip Isle Big Island Zip Lines tour, you can visit all the areas in our botanical gardens and see Kamaee Falls, whose water comes out of a lava tube from Mauna Kea. It is a very historic waterfall used by ancient Hawaiians and home to endangered species.
