Kohala Zipline wins Business Innovation Award


Kohala Zipline has been recognized by the Kona Kohala Chamber of Commerce with a Pualu Award for Business Innovation.

The award recognizes Kohala Zipline for its commitment to product development, safety, and customer service.

From course design to ongoing industry-leading expert consultations, Kohala Zipline has set a high standard for zipline design and safety. Kohala Zipline’s course from the ground up is a complete experience, not just another ride or attraction. It’s not just a zipline, it’s an aerial trekking course.

Through the use of interpretative elements, innovative course design and expert guides, guests are engaged the entire time, not just when zipping. The unique course design, along with strong community involvement, has led to Kohala Zipline’s Business Innovation Pualu Award.

“We are happy our business model that successfully integrates safety, fun, conservation and community is being recognized with this award,” said Kohala Zipline President Rob Pacheco. “We have a fantastic team that provides memorable experiences for guests and this award belongs to them.”

The Kohala Zipline Canopy Tour traverses a forested, stream-rich land on the northern tip of Hawaii Island, in an area known since ancient times as Halawa.

The course features soaring platforms built into majestic trees accentuated by arching suspension bridges and progressively longer zip lines.

Kohala Zipline’s sister company, Hawaii Forest & Trail, has been exploring Hawaii since 1993.

The companies’ missions are to deliver guests an excellent, safe and fun learning experience, to support island communities and resources through philanthropy, sustainable business practices and a conservation ethic, and to provide a healthy, profitable, and rewarding environment for their company ohana.
