Paradise Helicopter’s Zip & Dip Adventure tour combines three great adventures in one trip. Soar over Hawai‘i Island, seeing the strikingly beautiful landscapes in a way you only can from the air on the Hawai‘i Experience air adventure. Then, zoom through the trees and hike to a private waterfall in gorgeous North Kohala.

This adventure departs from the Kona International Airport in an executive style Bell 407 helicopter. En route to the Volcano area, you will overfly the world-famous Kona coffee district and skirt three of Hawai‘i’s towering volcanoes: Hualālai, Mauna
Kea and Mauna Loa. Upon arrival to Kīlauea in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, your pilot will search out the day’s activity with the hopes of seeing red hot lava. Then, you will venture deep into uninhabited valleys that showcase Hawai‘i’s wild, untamed beauty. Water cascades down soaring sheer valley walls, and surf pounds rocky cliffs and secluded beaches.

After navigating the island by air, land in historic North Kohala where you will be
met by our partners, Kohala Zipline. They’ll outfit you with helmet and harness for the next portion of your adventure – a thrilling canopy zipline experience! Trek along elevated suspension bridges, traverse across soaring tree platforms, glide
on thrilling ziplines and rappel from the final tree. From the moment you enter the aerial trekking course, you’ll be enthralled by Kohala’s magic. Kohala Zipline Canopy Adventures offers exclusive features, such as twin WhisperLinesSM and smooth- stop braking, to ensure your safety and comfort and deliver an experience like

no other. Upon completion of the course, picnic with stunning views of the North Kohala valleys and swim under a private waterfall fed by a cool mountain stream.

If you are coming to Hawaii in backpacker mode please keep looking. This tour is not pricey just for nothing. The tour is designed to take the most out of the island and take the helicopter tour to another level. I did this tour not because I could afford it, but because I won the prize for the top seller of the quarter in the company I worked for. They let me do this tour with my girlfriend and we had such a great time. I would do it again if I could. If you can afford this tour and you want to do zipline and a nice helicopter tour then take this one. I don’t think there is another one better than this.

Let me tell you something about this tour… The first thing you are going to hear everywhere you go is that it’s expensive… Trust me when I tell you: IT IS NOT. You would be surprised how many people come to Hawaii to do zipline and also to take a Helicopter tour and they pay way more than this just for booking separately. Do the math and you will see that the price is perfect. Besides the fact that you are an hour and a half in the air is a feature that not all the helicopter tours offer. This was for me the best decision and I loved every single part of it.

Whoever came up with the idea of combining ziplining and the quality of this helicopter tour nailed it 100%. I had a blast with this tour. The people at the zipline were so fun and friendly. The view that you see while you are driving through private areas is unforgettable. This tour has everything. I loved and I am looking forward to doing it again when we come back next year
