This is THE best zipline tour ever. Not only the views from the ziplines were very beautiful, our tour guides, Adam and Kinnie (? or "Special K") were very nice, funny (and NOT corny, no mean or insulting jokes either), and very knowledgeable. I would go back not only to enjoy the ziplines again but to just say hi to... More

Wow, we had SUCH a fun day zip lining with Slingshot and Goober. (OMG, they are HILARIOUS!) I love those guys... they are "brothers from another mother" (ie: parents have been together for like 15 years) and I LOVED the comraderie and friendly nature between the two. They are seriously crazy dudes (and I mean that in a good way).... More

My companion and I had a blast with BEIA on the Big Island zip line tour. Our guides Jay and Braxton made the outing fun from the get-go. They started cracking jokes early on at check-in, which got our group of 10 all comfortable with each other. After suiting up, we piled into a Panizer, which is basically a 1970s... More

My husband & I went on this zip line tour in February! What an amazing tour! It was an absolute Blast! The zip lines were so much fun, but I think the guides are what really made the tour! We had the pleasure of having Brandon & Tim as our guides for the tour. I noticed when they were getting... More

One of the best tours we had on the big island hands down. Our original date was cancelled due to poor conditions, but they re-scheduled us on the next clear day (which was the very next day). Starting in an old army 4x4, you take a bumpy but fun ride to the first of the ziplines. What a rush! This... More

The zip line was great fun, and the guides Jay & Charmaine made the whole trip even better. They obviously love what they do and love to share their knowledge of the area with everyone. The tour started with a 30-45 min safari ride in a hummer, which was great fun too. The Zip lines got progressively more exciting and... More

We had a great time on our zipline tour. It is a little pricey, but I felt like it was worth it. The area is beautiful and the ziplines were fun. We booked the 10 am tour to be in the hummer with a smaller group, so there were only 7 of us. Our guides, Mai Lani and Shanti (?)... More

I did the BIEA zipline tour with a group of friends. The ride to the forest takes about 30 minutes each way and is pretty bumpy in some areas. It's an adventure in itself, but I'm not a fan of bumpy rides. The zipline course is well set up, with 8 total ziplines. The ziplines get progressively longer and more... More

This was our 3rd time ziplining and we loved it here. As with most places they start you off with the easy lines to build your confidence. Then the amazing lines come in at the end. Incredible views of waterfalls and ocean. And a lovely snack midway overlooking a waterfall, and the suspension bridge was fun too. I can't say... More

Other reviewers noted all the right points. Ride down, with Braxton driving, was excessive. We read reviews of all the ziplining on the island, and this was the best. It did not disappoint. Budda and Braxton lent the right balance of information and jokes. Great time.
