Ziplining in Ka‘a‘awa Valley

Begin the Kualoa Ranch Zipline Tour at the top of Ka‘a‘awa Valley. The 2.5 hour zipline tour includes seven exciting tandem sections that are perfect for friends or couples who want to zip side-by-side. Walk across the two exciting suspension bridges, but don’t worry, you’re still clipped in as you cross the bridges! Throughout the tour you’ll be enjoying nature including three mini-hiking trails that take about 5 minutes each.

Ka’a’awa Valley has a rich cultural history and each of the seven ziplines is named after a culturally-significant element of the valley. Your zipline tour guide will share with you Hawaiian traditions, flora, and fauna as you cross natural streams and zip through this gorgeous windward valley. The zips were designed so that each provides a distinct cultural experience and learning opportunity.

The Kualoa Ranch Zipline is safe, fun, and easy. No experience required! First time “zipliners” immediately get the hang of it. The state-of-the art automatic braking system allows you to enjoy the views and the thrills without having to do a thing. There are no handbrakes on this zipline. Your guide will stop you automatically at the end of your zip.

Buffet Lunch

Package includes our signature “all-you-can-eat” Ranch buffet lunch.


Transportation departs Waikiki at 7:00am. The return to Waikiki is at 2:30pm. Transportation is shared with other Kualoa Ranch activities, so there is limited space and it fills up very quickly.


This is one of the most popular activities at Kualoa Ranch and one of the most exciting experiences on Oahu.

    Did the horseback ride through the property. Liked that they limit the groups to 6 people. This allows time for questions, photos and keeps it from feeling like a standard nose-to-tail ride, despite being required to keep the horses in that formation (safety reasons).

    Victoria was a wonderful well-informed guide. It’s a walk only ride so it’s quite manageable for all skill levels. This tour was awesome. My youngest 4 years old and even my 60 years old mom had a great time on the ziplines.

    If you want to see the best view of the mountains of Kualoa ranch do the this tour. You will have the best photo op. The horseback trail riding was combination of rugged, uphill, and beautiful terrain that makes your ride more adventurous.

    My husband and I celebrated our 45th anniversary recently. The concierge at our hotel, directed us to the tours at Kualoa Ranch. We enjoy the horseback and zip line tours. The guide for the tour was friendly, funny, and so informative. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area. Strongly recommended.

    I and two of my friends attended a one hour horseback tour and then on to the ziplining. We were the only ones in that tour and our guide did her best to make this experience unique for us. The views were amazing and it was cool to see the valley where movies like Jurassic Park were filmed. Kualoa valley is simply beautiful.

    Me and my boyfriend visited Kualoa Ranch last week. We chose this tour and booked in advance as we were told that the tours book up fast. The views were SPECTACULAR especially on the day we went. They provided stops so you can take advantage of photo opportunities. It was my first time horseback riding and was a little scared at first, but the horses are well trained and our guide gave us tips on how to direct and keep the horse calm. As far as ziplining…I can’t think of a more scenic place to do it. The valley is surrounded by majestic green mountains. Amazing!
