The Big Island's Umauma Falls zipline has nine long lines with 2 MILES  of spectacular zipping through paradise, over 14 waterfalls and great ocean views.  The first four lines are exciting long dual lines. You get to race your partner, take pictures and see the beautiful Umauma river and its waterfalls from a birds eye view.

At line #2, you will have time to view the beautiful scenery which includes a view of a 100 foot waterfall as you look toward the top of Mauna Kea.  Most people who live on the Big Island of Hawaii have never seen this beautiful waterfall.  You will, if you book this tour. You also visit a shelter that overlooks the river as another river joins the mighty UMAUMA.   Keep an eye out for the native Hawaiian hawk (I‘o) that lives in this area.  He may soar into the canyon while you are zipping.  On line #4 you will zip over 2000 feet of river water and many falls.  This is so amazing you will pinch yourself that you are actually here. Lines 5 through 8 take you through scenic pasture land, guava orchards, and a tropical garden. Cross a 200' suspension bridge that takes you 100' over a water filled lava tube and fern grotto to get to line #5.  You will get a close up view of the dual waterfall part of the famous UMAUMA FALLS at the end of line #7. Finally. line #9 sends you back to where you started at the visitors center.  Hear and see the people standing on the deck of the visitor center cheering you as you zip down the river past the visitor center and land on a platform Oceanside of the center. Sandwiches, Wraps, Smoothies and Drinks are available for purchase in the Snack Shack at the Visitor Center.

Each zipline has a shelter that keeps you cool in the sun, dry in the rain, they also provide great photo opportunities and time to relax between zips.
