Our family had an awesome time on the zip and dip. We had such an easy booking and pickup experience - the whole day was planned and ran smoothly. Our guide, Decker, was great fun and knowledgeable about the area and its history. He was also great at showing us details along the trails and journey, like plants and animals. The zips are beautiful - what an experience to be floating in a lush canopy in Hawaii. The bridges are a little nerve-racking, but totally worth it! Kodi was also an amazing host with positive energy and a welcoming spirit. We loved the hospitality - everything was at our fingertips. Lunch and snacks were great. The waterfall was a perfect ending to the tour.


Our guides Nick and Decker were awesome. Decker picked us up from near our hotel and stayed with us throughout the whole tour. The zip lining was fun but getting to hear the history, some plant facts and mythology of the Big Island was such a great bonus. I loved that we got to swim under the waterfall after zipping through the trees! 10/10 recommend.


We did the zip and dip. That day we did the waterfalls first. Nice waterfalls. Easy swimming and there were other groups coming in as we were heading out. This was the second time I ever zipped. Competent staff. Interesting zips. The first bridge is seriously scary. If you don’t get the hang of it the first couple of zips they basically give up on you and you don’t learn how to improve much. Nice area to zip in. Big trees with stream. Lunch location was awesome…really recommend if you have experience zipping. If you are a beginner, I might try somewhere else…. But it’s a good time!


Dane, our driver/guide picked the newlyweds and me up timely in Kailua-Kona, starting his informative and entertaining patter as we headed north. One stop to collect a family of six, and we continued the comfortable ride to Kohala. At the upland office we were expertly fitted out with helmets and harnesses, gloves and had a rest stop break. Off into the hills, the rough dirt road had ruts and mud, but this all enhanced the experience. As we alighted to start our arboreal travels, we met Jacob who would "catch" us as we zipped longer and longer runs between the trees. Several rope bridges (which triggered my fear of heights) proved that they can be mastered, and also gave the teenagers a chance to test their parents. With a short rappelling at the terminus, we left our safety gear and boarded the vehicle. Back to the road, we wove through small towns until a turn makai (towards the ocean) for a picnic lunch with a splendid view of the northern cliffs lining the coast. A bit further along the coast, we turned into the private preserve of Hawaiian royalty to bounce our way to the path taking us to the overlook and, subsequently, the base of the upper (of two) waterfalls. The younger folks friskily played in and walked under the falls. Boarding the vehicle again, Dane returned to the upland office where we viewed the pictures Zane and Jacob had captured, before we headed back to our respective rendezvous points. A full exciting adventure with a most informative guide, I'd recommend this outfit without hesitation. Great people, highly professional, friendly and knowledgeable.


Curtis was amazing. He took very good care of us since we never ziplined before. The experience was awesome and we used our gopro for lots of viedos. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone who comes to the big island. The waterfalls were great and to be able to swim under them was breathe taking. Great job to our guides Curtis and Ryan.


Swimming in the waterfalls. Also, our guide Dane was incredible! It's great having a native to guide us who really knows and understands the culture.


Awesome tour with cool guides and a lot of fun. It was definitely worth it. The adrenaline is kicking when you stroll down the zippline.


Decker and Eli were awesome guides! We always felt safe, and they were both very knowledgeable and friendly. We would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone we know!


We did the 8-hour "Zip & Dip" tour and loved every minute. A practically otherworldly experience as we crossed exciting Indiana-Jones-style suspension bridges through the stunning forest canopy to move from one long zipline to the next. Gorgeous, thrilling, and informative, and capped by a dip in a postcard waterfall in an idyllic glen. Our guides Dane and Jake were fantastic: patient, knowledgeable, and funny. They were careful and thorough with safety procedures... in fact, the whole setup, while genuinely exciting, is absolutely uncompromising regarding safety, with triply-redundant harness and suspension systems. Your heart may race but you are absolutely NOT going to fall. A thoroughly enjoyable experience from beginning to end. A little pricey to be sure, but very highly recommended.


Such a fun day with great guides! We enjoyed sampling local fruits and learning about the plants and wildlife on our hike. Always felt safe on the zip lines and bridges, get the picture package and no camera needed while zipping but bring along to take pics in the waterfalls and hike. Jump in the waterfalls for a swim - it’s cold but you won’t regret it and warm up on the hike. Everyone enjoyed the simple lunch. Dane was excellent!
