Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure Zipline Tour
Cascading nearly 250 ft., one of the World's most spectacular waterfalls passes under your feet as you glide effortlessly through the air. An adventure unmatched in Hawaii, with ziplines that pass above jaw-dropping scenery along unrivaled spans - the Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure is Hawaii's most amazing zipline experience.
First Zipline in the U.S.
This zipline tour sets a new standard for family adventure along the Big Island's famed Hamakua Coast. Skyline is the United States' first and most experienced zipline operator, with nearly 2 million safe zipline crossings at its multiple locations, making the Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure by far the most trusted and proven zipline operational system on the Big Island of Hawaii.
