Rocketing from behind to dominate the field of zipline competitors in the Best Zipline Co. & Course from the No. 4 last year, Skyline Eco-Adventures Akaka Falls earned rave reviews for its seven-line, 2.5-hour course. While other zip courses send you sailing high above Hawaiian soil, Skyline Eco-Adventures Akaka Falls is the only one that lets you loose 450 feet above the crashing 250-foot Kolekole waterfall with unparalleled views. On the way, zippers will spot several smaller falls, misty mountaintops, banana forests, gullies home to wild pigs and sugarcane and kalo (taro), important Hawaiian crop plants, growing wild.
