Rainforest Canopy & Zipline Expedition

Imagine gliding through the top of a rich rainforest canopy along a series of seven zip lines and navigating two rappelling elements suspended between tall spruce, hemlock and cedar trees.

Your rainforest canopy challenge features a flight over eight zip lines. Your guide will gradually guide you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 100 feet up to 600 feet, with platforms reaching heights of up to 100 feet above the ground. Some guests often see eagles and bears from the platforms. Cross a hanging bridge to reach our longest zip line, which plunges into the canopy and provides you with breathtaking views of the salmon spawning creek and surrounding forest. Throughout this award-winning adventure you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the rainforest wildlife reserve.

The last zip line leaves the rain forest and takes you across lush wetlands to an observation tower that is 55 feet above the ground and offers a view of the Whitman Lake Fish Hatchery. From there, you will rappel to the ground. If time permits, stop by our ancient sawmill, see our Tsimshian totem park, watch our local blacksmiths in action, and have a cool Alaskan beer or freshly made coffee (not included). Make sure to visit the General Store where you can view photos captured during your zip-line adventure and shop for memorable mementos to commemorate your thrilling Alaskan experience. The excursion concludes with a scenic drive back to the ship.
