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, professional guides will instruct and outfit you with the best safety equipment in an open air forest pavilion. Then the zipline 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 zipline adventure park, 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 zipline adventure 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.
