Big Island Zipline Adventures

Kohala Zipline Tours

Founded in 2011, Kohala Zipline is the creation of husband and wife team Rob and Cindy Pacheco, owners of one of the Big Island’s best tour companies, Hawaii Forest & Trail. Taking their 20+ years working in travel and tourism, Rob and Cindy wanted to create a new and different kind of canopy tour, something that would be completely special and unique from all other ziplines in Hawaii. They hired one of the most experienced canopy tour builders in the nation, Bonsai Designs, to help them achieve their goal. They spared no expense; everything from aesthetics and design, to ensuring top-of-the-line safety mechanism were in place, all are sure to provide an optimal experience for guests.
