from Piiholo Ranch Canopy Zipline Tours
If you want the experience of a zipline tour but need to keep it short, our 3-line canopy tour is the one for you! Two zips over lush valleys lead up to our ultimate 930-foot line, which zips you high-speed through the air to finish through a tree tunnel in the tropical forest canopy.
Approx. 1 hour.

You’ll zip on 6 distinct lines through the beautiful tree canopy on our 6-line canopy tour. Fly high over ravines and the forest floor and observe native and introduced trees and plants. Your final line is the longest in-the-trees zipline in the state and finishes through a tunnel in the trees. Great for families looking for educational adventures and big excitement!
Approx. 1.5 hours.

Once you’re off the ground, you’re in the trees the whole time on our premier 9-line canopy tour! You’ll soar through a tropical forest of towering eucalyptus on ziplines up to 930 feet long, cross an aerial canopy bridge and finish with a high-speed zip through a tree tunnel. Great fun while you learn about Hawai‘i’s native plants and unique ecosystem, and enjoy amazing views. This tour includes a stop at our pirate treehouse for snacks and drinks.
Approx. 3 hours.

We did the 6 zipline tour. Great guides... Safety first... You're always tethered to the trees. Great experience. Remember to show up early and bring mosquito repellent!

Zipping was fun! Our guides were great and made the trip fun even though it was raining the whole time. Beautiful rainbows and scenery. Suspension bridges on way up to platforms. First platform was pretty scary because we were not sure what to expect but after we realized we were secure and clipped in we were able to relax and enjoy the ride. Best zip was the last longest line.
