As the only certified zipline company in the area, Zip Isle is located in the World Botanical Gardens, the state's largest botanical garden. Making a hole in the lush jungle along the beautiful Hamakua Coast, this is a rather moderate zipline course, not like a crazy one in a foreign country, but it's still exciting and will do the trick. It's a perfect course for children and first timers and was constructed in partnership with certified engineers to guarantee the safest experience possible. They offer six tours daily, but it's a good idea to reserve a week in advance.

Driving along the Hamakua just to go ziplining is a rewarding experience in itself, since the drive is along the coast in full view of grassy meadows and the ocean. As one of the more adventurous attractions on the island, ziplining with Zip Isle is a unique and new experience, as until recently, there were no zipline tracks on the island.

Visiting Zip Isle is a good experience whether you're heading to the opposite side of the island via the Hamakua Coast, or venturing out to the botanical gardens just to ride the course. Don't forget the camera for this experience, and get some memorable family shots while flying through the Hawaiian jungle.
