Deli-style lunch included during the zip. Next, head out to explore the jewel of the Big Island, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

"Hilo KapohoKine Ziplining"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 10, 2020 NEW
Been on multiple ziplining adventures throughout the world. This rated among the top ones, but wasn't the absolute #1, mostly due to price, length/# of total lines, and services offered before, during, and after the tour. BUT, the staff, especially Kali and Whalen, were awesome!! Will definitely recommend them and KapohoKine to others (but yes there could be some overall company/tour improvement overall). Thanks for the memories!!

"Ultimate National Park/Volcano tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 09, 2020 NEW
Very friendly and informative tour guide. My husband and I have been to the Big Island a number of times, so we have seen a fair amount of the island during previous trips. We liked letting someone else do the driving, since it was a long day. We feel that for the length of the trip, we would have appreciated seeing/doing more things, or else having the trip shortened. For instance, we went to a coffee farm, and while it was in a nice location, it would have been a better experience if it had included a tour of the farm and the growing/production processes.

My time on the zip swim tour was fantastic. The crew (Tiffany, Lina, Bredan, and ashely (sorry if I got the names wrong lol)) were super nice and made sure everyone on the tour was having fun. The food was great and the views were gorgeous! Highly recommend

"Every trip was worth it"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 08, 2020 NEW
I went on the Zipline + Volcano your and the stargazing tour and both were great! All of the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The included snacks and meals were actually much better than anticipated. The only thing negative I can say is the stargazing tour got clouded over, but they filled the time with a lot of information. I think overall the most fulfilling trip was the Zipline+Volcano tour. A whole day of fun for sure.

"Pretty Good Zipline Course"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 04, 2020 NEW
The staff was great and friendly. 5 out of the 8 lines are pretty basic and don't have any nice scenery. The other three lines are what saved the adventure. They had great views and were long in length. Waiting times between lines with a large group was brutal at times. Overall it was decent.
