Imagine yourself flying through a tropical rainforest canopy over splashing streams and waterfalls with a view of the crystal blue Pacific Ocean in the distance. That's only the beginning on this amazing adventure that combines a seven stage zip line course, a stroll through the famous World Botanical Gardens and a beautiful waterfall viewing in an exclusive area of the island. You'll be surrounded by beauty as you hike from one line to the next in this tropical wonderland. A portion of the hike is on a suspension bridge that cuts through the jungle with several small waterfalls below your feet. This course was created to fill the senses with anticipation and excitement in a safe and fun environment for the entire family. All lines are ground to ground making it easier for all to participate.

Customer Reviews for Rainforest Zip Line & Waterfall
This was an AWESOME excursion. We went in January. The staff has a place to lock up belongings you bring that you cannot zip with. They provide rain gear if needed. Be sure to wear long shorts and take a camera. The zip lines are all ground to ground so you don't have to worry about stopping yourself. The guides control it. There are suspension bridges, too. The scenery is outstanding. The ziplines are great fun & exciting. You need to be able to walk from zip line to zip line but the paths are all easy to manage. After the zipline adventure we had a guided tour of the botantical garden. We learned a lot! We didn't get to see much of the waterfall because it was raining to hard (the only time the entire cruise). The guide provided everyone with an umbrella. One guide told us a 92 year old woman had zipped there a week earlier! I highly recommend this excursion. We did both the zipline in Hilo and the treetop zipline in Kauai. Both are awesome. This one is easier overall.
This zipline and tour was fun and very informative. Our tour guide(s) provided continual information about everything we were seeing. The ziplines are a bit tame for the experienced zipliners but very good for the beginners or the entire family.
I was really afraid to zip line. I am afraid of heights. The guides were so much fun. I arrived at the first zip line the guides said just sit back and off I went. It was wonderful!!! The scenery was so beautiful. I think the thing that helped the most was I knew I could not fall. We have wonderful pictures and wonderful memories.
I did ziplining at two other locations on Kauai so I wanted to see what Hilo looked like. It is located at World Botanical Gardens, and the garden tour is part of the package. Here you will see and eat mango, apple bananas, star fruit, and guava. You will see cashew nut trees & learn they are poisonous until boiled, like a poison ivy but it's a tree. There are HUGE mango trees and Rainbow Eucalyptus trees. There are seven zip line runs, the trail is well-maintained and easy to navigate. You do an easy hike to the first zipline, the guides connect your harness to the cable, and off you go. At the other side another guide disconnects your harness from the cable, and you walk to the next zipline platform to do it again. The last zipline run has a double cable, so you can 'race' with someone else. There is no strenuous activity here, only FUN! Make sure to bring a lanyard for your camera or you can wear a fanny pack. You will want to zip ahead of others in your party to take their picture or video when they come down the zipline run. Here's a pic I took from high above the trees with a stream below at one of the runs.
It's a sad moment when you realize that your adventure at Zip Isle is over. Seven fun and different ziplines criss-cross the lush grounds of that overlook rivers, rain forests and even views of the ocean from this mini theme park. Our guides were young and full of vigor. Loved their stories and they made everyone feel at ease, because nobody in our group of 12 had ever zipped before. Just follow their instructions and you can't go wrong. The course also included a suspension bridge that conjured up memories of the "Indiana Jones" movies. What a great journey my wife and I had on this. We have to recommend this to everyone. Thanks, guys.
