KapohoKine Offers Free Zips for Kama’ainaMay 26, 2016, 10:30 AM HST (Updated May 26, 2016, 10:30 AM)
KapohoKine Adventures is celebrating Memorial Day by offering free ziplining tours to residents.
The upcoming weekend will be the adventure company’s seventh year of offering the tours to Big Island locals free of charge.
“Many of our local families are unable to afford ziplining, even at the steepest discount,” said Tony DeLellis, co-owner of KapohoKine Adventures. “We want to give residents a chance to experience what’s in our own backyard, and take pride in the fact that it is our natural surroundings that draw so many visitors to the island.”
On both Saturday and Sunday, the first 50 kama’aina in line will qualify for a free zipline tour.
Wrist bands that will be color-coded will be distributed each morning, and vans will depart from the downtown Hilo storefront every 15 minutes beginning at 8 a.m.
Hawai’i residency is required at check-in to qualify for the free zipline adventure, and each person is required to bring one non-perishable food item to be donated to The Food Basket.
