BIG ISLAND, HAWAII — Have you ever soared above a 250 foot waterfall? Skyline Eco-Adventures now brings you its newest and most breathtaking thrill ride of all on the Island of Hawaii.
Located on the famed Hamakua coast of Hawaii’s Big Island just footsteps away from the legendary Akaka Falls, Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure features seven ziplines across the island’s lush, tropical Hawaiian rainforest. As you work your way across a network of progressively longer ziplines, this high-flying adventure culminates in the most unforgettable ride of all – a 3,300-foot long zipline over one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls – a 250 foot cascade located on private land, less than a mile downstream from the famous Akaka Falls. Experience the thrill of crossing over a canopy of tropical trees below and the exhilaration of soaring 500 feet above the lush river valley and spectacular waterfall.
Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure is the first franchise location of Skyline Eco-Adventures, and as Skyline co-founder Danny Boren puts it “Every visitor and kama‘aina alike should see Hawaii from this unbelievable vantage point . . . it will blow you away!”
In addition to breathtaking views and thrilling rides, specially trained guides on Skyline’s Akaka Falls journey highlight the importance of preserving Hawaii’s fragile environment. Skyline is the first zipline operator in the world to join “1% For The Planet,” a group of businesses committed to donating at least 1% of all sales back to various Hawaii non-profit groups. “Skyline is committed to preserving Hawaii’s fragile environment,” says Boren. “Our guests will learn about the islands on each tour we offer, while a portion of each guests’ tour fees go back to protecting the irreplaceable things that make these islands so special.” To date, Skyline courses have donated nearly $500,000 to various non-profit groups focused on environmental, cultural and social issues.
In addition to Akaka Falls Skyline Adventure, Skyline also operates two Maui zipline tours, located at Ka‘anapali and Haleakala. With the longest track record of safety of any operator in the islands, Skyline guests can have confidence as they embark on any of Skyline’s breathtaking zipline adventures.
