Zipline Adventure Park
Ketchikan Zipline Adventure Tour
Your Ketchikan shore excursion begins as you board your motor coach for a scenic, narrated 25 minute drive out of downtown Ketchikan to Knudson Cove, an "off the beaten track" waterfront property in the Tongass National Forest-your playground for the next 2 hours.
Before you begin this Ketchikan tour, professional guides will instruct and outfit you with the best safety equipment in an open air forest pavilion. Then the adventure begins as gravity pulls you along seven zip lines. You will catch glimpses of bald eagles and the ocean below as you glide through old growth cedars, fly into an ancient tree onto the Eagle's Nest Platform, traverse a swaying log, swing across rope loops, feel the speed and acceleration of landing on a one of a kind ocean platform located 50' over the water, and finally the rush of zipping to the ground.
Once back on ground, if you still haven't had enough of this incredible Ketchikan excursion, head over to the 50-foot climbing tower where guides will show you techniques needed to climb to the top. A circular staircase inside the tower enables others to climb up, take in the mountain and ocean views, and snap photos of climbers proudly ringing the bell at the top of the wall. Don't worry! These ziplines are easy. There is no hand braking. Braking systems are state of the art.
For the less adventurous members of your party, guides can assist you to skip elements. After your Ketchikan tour, there is time to shop for souvenirs before boarding your motor coach for the return drive back to the pier. Ready to zip? Then come out and zip! Don't miss out on this unique and supernatural rainforest canopy experience with Ketchikan's most experienced adventure company.
The zip lining was fun and safe. They had a nice property and you are zipping thru a canopy of trees and one time over the water in a bay. The only thing I wish is that the obstacle course would be done at the end instead of the beginning. By the time you are done you are more confident in the harnesses and would try the obstacle course. Also wish the driver knew more about the area.....but all in all it was an excellent adventure and we are glad we did it!

My first time ziplining will most certainly not be my last. This experience is amazing - gorgeous forest, an over-the-water line, and an obstacle course. Best, though, are the fabulous guides. Both added great fun to the entire experience with their knowledge of the local area and its environment.
This is a first for most of my family. Very easy, no hand braking. There are about 7 ziplines, a couple of them go over water. My in-laws are in their 70s and they had so much fun. They were going to sit this one out jbut staff was great in talking them into it. Very supportive and meticulous staff. I felt safe throughout. I believe there’s a more challenging one for people who are into that. Awesome experience
This was a very fun trip with super guides (Sasha and Greg). They helped us through our trouble spots (a few fears and anxieties!) and highly recommend!

This was our first time and it was Great. We never thought we would be able to do something like this. They had several zipline for us to try and all were a different fun experience.
