Zip & Dip Video
The Big Island is a place of plenty, a location where anything is possible and there's nothing to stop the brimming fun and excitement. In the northwest corner of the Big Island sits Kohala, a region that houses a healthy dose of the thrills and adventure that The Big Island offers so freely to its guests and locals.
The Adventurous Highlights
You'll start your journey through this culturally significant section of The Big Island on an off-road drive through a private reserve. Aboard our 6-wheel drive passenger vehicle, you'll see Hawaii's rich scenery and culture unfold around you while our expert guide fills you in on the importance of Kohala.
When you reach your destination, the real fun starts – a series of fun activities that bring you closer to Hawaii's natural features. You may take notice to the natural waterfall that serves as the region's most predominant feature, and it's here and the pool it filters out into that you'll go for a swim. Enjoy the crystal blue waters as they filter down from a mountain stream above, showing you the process of nature on The Big Island.
As you're wading around in the cooling waters, you'll hear the excited hollers of other travelers as they soar through the forest's thick canopies. After you've dried off a little, you'll follow their lead and embark on adventure through the same rich forestry.
Flying Through Kohala
Acting as the thrills of the Kohala Zip & Dip combo is a zipline ride through the dense jungles of Kohala. You'll make your way up into the canopies of the forest where you'll be introduced to the gear and lines you'll be embarking down. Over 9 different lines are available for you to zoom down, each one providing an incredible and new view of The Big Island.
As you fly down and enjoying the rush of tropical air, you'll be completely free to let loose and enjoy yourself thanks to our high-end safety equipment. As you survey the area around you, you'll also catch 5 different sky bridges and a rappel that serve as other means to traverse through the high canopies of Kohala.
Once you're back on the ground, you'll set up near the rim of Pololu Valley for a picnic lunch provided by us. It's the ideal and serene ending to a perfect day.
