Kona: Air Zip & Dip Adventure
Paradise’s Helicopter Air Zip & Dip Adventure combines two great adventures in one trip. Soar over Hawai‘i Island and see the strikingly beautiful landscapes in a way only possible from the air. Then, zoom through the trees in gorgeous North Kohala on a thrilling zip line canopy tour.
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. Nearing Kīlauea, the only erupting volcano in Hawai‘i, 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.
Land in historic North Kohala where you will be met by our partners, Kohala Zipline. They will outfit you with a helmet and harness for the second half of your adventure – a thrilling canopy zip line experience! Trek along elevated suspension bridges, traverse tree platforms, glide on zip lines and rappel from the final tree. Kohala Zipline Canopy Adventures offers exclusive features, such as twin WhisperLines and smooth-stop braking, to ensure your safety and comfort and deliver an experience like no other.
Upon completion of the course you will enjoy some time at the charming historic plantation town of Hawi to browse a few shops and grab some lunch before heading back to the Kona airport on a complimentary shuttle.
