The ultimate eco-adventure, the Rainforest Canopy Zipline Expedition receives some of the most glowing reviews of all Ketchikan tours and is definitely an excellent choice for thrill-seekers! Climb aboard a massive all-terrain Unimog vehicle for the steep ascent up a mountainside to a ziplining course bordering the magnificent Tongass National Forest nature reserve. Then launch yourself on a high-flying, fast-and-furious ride through the top of the rainforest canopy along eight dual-cable ziplines ranging from 100 feet all the way to the adrenaline pumping 750-foot line called Ben’s Revenge. Your heart-pumping adventure covers 6000 feet of scenic canopy and ground-based trails, as well as three suspension bridges swaying high above the forest floor. Keep your eyes peeled, and you could be lucky enough to spot bald eagles, black bears, and the other wildlife abundant in this pristine wilderness area.

This adventure is recommended for those who have already experienced ziplining and are ready to tackle a new challenge. As with other Ketchikan tours, pick-up and drop-off for the scenic 16-mile round trip are conveniently located near the cruise docks in downtown Ketchikan. Your adventure begins as you board the Unimog for a gravity-defying ride up a steep mountainside to the starting point for the ziplining course. Here, your experienced guides will outfit you with state-of-the-art safety equipment and give you detailed orientation before you launch yourself out into the treetops, where you’ll fly along as high as 135 feet above the ground! When you finally descend from the final viewing platform you’ll be awarded with a custom-cast medal for your achievement. Then you can get your breath back while enjoying a snack and hot beverage. For a truly breath-taking adventure, the Rainforest Canopy Zipline expedition is an unparalleled experience!

    Great experience!!I highly recommend this one! I had a great time! Our guides, Ben and Paul are very professional and also lots of fun. Being inexperienced, I was pretty nervous (terrified) but these guys put you right at ease, and are so very supportive. I felt safe at all times. Beautiful setting saw a bear with a salmon and a cub following behind, ravens too!! Loved it!!

    Amazing!We had a fabulous time zip lining in Ketchikan. We saw a bear and several bald eagles. We zipped overlooking gorgeous views and walked some suspension bridges. The guides were first rate, the course was beautiful, we always felt safe, and everyone had a great time.

    AmazingAn amazing and exhilarating experience, so high up in the trees you could feel the trunk sway. Clay and Andrew, our guides, were an added bonus, allowing us to feel in control while keeping us safe. A truly sensational ride. I will remember it forever. Thank you.

    Glad we did it - fun for whole familyBoth the facility and staff were great. I was afraid of heights, but they were great at connecting with every person and distracting them / keeping them focused on safety and fun.

    How many ziplines are included on this tour?

    Answer: This tour consists of 8 ziplines and 3 Skybridges connecting some of the platforms.

    What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?

    Answer: It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases, we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.

    What makes this zipline tour different from any other in Alaska?

    Answer: It's true that you'll find several ziplining options along the cruise route, and this one can be distinguished mainly by its location. Nestled in a private reserve next to Tongass National Forest, wildlife sightings are much more common on this ziplining excursion than any other in Alaska.

    Is ziplining safe?

    Answer: Safety is fundamental to this tour, and the course is inspected weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually. Dual ziplines means you are connected to 2 cables while ziplining, and you are connected at 4 points at all times throughout the course, even between stations. For each group of zipliners, you will have 2 certified guides that are versed in First Aid/CPR and AED certification.

    What should I bring? Are cameras okay?

    Answer: Some guests show up with the clothes on their back and the smile on their face. Other guests show up with a small backpack that contains an extra clothing layer, a bottle of water, a snack and other personal items. So, it's up to you! Space is often limited on the shuttle, so it's best to keep your items to a minimum, but bring what you need. While on the tour, you're welcome to use your camera to snap photos of the beautiful scenery, yourself and your group! A smaller camera works best, but if you're comfortable bringing your DSLR you may; however, they can be burdensome while zipping at times. Keep in mind that you will be several stories above the forest floor at times while ziplining, so if you drop your camera it will likely not survive; for this reason, be sure that your camera has secure neck & wrist straps or is compact enough to fit in the small zippered hand pocket of the provided rain jacket. If bringing a large camera, the staff ultimately determines if your camera may be taken on the course, as it pertains to your safety and the safety of other guests and our guides. Once you arrive at the zipline course, your guides will collect the group's belongings and secure them. Upon completing your exciting tour, you will be able to quickly retrieve your personal items!
