Hawaii Helicopters & KapohoKine Adventures Introduce HeliZIP PackageJune 24, 2019, 10:00 AM HST (Updated June 24, 2019, 9:40 AM)
Hawaii Helicopters and KapohoKine Adventures have partnered to introduce the new HeliZIP Package, an extensive helicopter and zipline combo adventure tour on Hawai‘i Island.
The eight-hour adventure begins at the Waikoloa heliport, where guests will board a Hawaii Helicopters A-Star Class aircraft for a tour over lush rainforests and waterfalls on the way to the Hāmākua Coast.
The aircraft then takes guests to an exclusive landing site next to a private waterfall for a Hawaiian-style barbecue lunch and a refreshing swim.
Following the flight, guests will embark on the Zipline Through Paradise eight-line course that covers nearly two miles of gorgeous tropical river gorges.
This is the only Hawai‘i island zipline course to boast every line as dual lines, allowing side-by-side ziplining. The last line is also the island’s longest riding tandem line at nearly one-half mile.
To conclude the tour, guests will be taken on a return drive through the center of the island, flanked by stunning views of Maunakea and Mauna Loa.
The HeliZIP Package is an eight-hour experience departing from Kona.
