Welcome to Umauma Falls Zipline on the Big Island of Hawaii. Umauma Falls features 9 long lines with 2 MILES of spectacular ziping. You’ll fly over 14(!) waterfalls and panoramic ocean views. The first 4 lines are also dual lines so you’ll be able to zip side by side with someone from your party!

The Big Island’s Umauma Falls Zipline has a total of NINE long lines spanning over a total of 2 miles in total length!  You’ll zipline over 14 waterfalls and expansive panoramic ocean views.

Things get off to a fun start as you’ll participate on dual, racing zips for the first 4 lines.  These ziplines allow you to zip side by side with a group member.  Whether that person is a family member, friend, or stranger, you’ll enjoy sharing the moment as you fly through the amazing scenery found on the Hamakua Coast of the island of Hawaii.

Exciting dual ziplines at Uamuma Falls

Enjoy the bird’s eye view as you fly over roaring waterfalls and find out why Umauma Falls is considered to be the premier destination zipline in all of Hawaii.

On line #2, not only will you enjoy unobstructed views of a 100 foot waterfall, but you’ll also look towards the summit of the sacred Mauna Kea!  Most locals have never been lucky enough to see this waterfall and here you are, ziplining over it!

Line #4 is one of the most scenic as you zipline over 2000 feet of river water and many cascades along the river.  You truly won’t believe what you are seeing and doing, this is a special trip.

Long suspension bridge spans a gorge on Big Island, Hawaii

To keep things interesting on your feet, you’ll cross a 200 foot suspension bridge which is over 100 feet above a water filled lava tube and fern grotto on your way to line #5.  And at the end of line #7, you’ll get a close up view of our tours namesake, Umauma Falls.  You’ll also get to enjoy the view from an exclusive shelter reserved for Zipline guests only.

This is truly a once in a lifetime experience.  There are other Zipline parks in Hawaii and on the Big Island, but none will compare to the scenery, speed, and length of ziplines like you’ll find at Umauma Falls Zipline.
