On the Big Island, in Hawaii, or anywhere else, all zip line tours are about flying along cables. Participants soar over a natural terrain by gliding from platform to platform. Unique among these courses, the Zipline Canopy Tour of Kohala Zipline features platforms that are elevated and built directly into trees: For a few hours your home is high up in the forest. Even when you cross the suspension sky bridges, you remain high above the ground. The twin cables from which you are suspended on our course are nylon-coated, which other ziplines in Hawaii do not offer yet: Kohala Zipline’s WhisperLine coating reduces the noise of gliding by over 50 percent, so you can hear the forest itself. The twin system provides the safety of redundancy. Your adventure is located high up in the forested lands of a 6,000-acre private property, around a steep gulch with stunning views. This otherwise inaccessible area in the ahupuaa of Halawa is filled with such cultural and environmental significance that it has affected the course of Hawaii history.
