I did this and it was really fun! First you train on the ground when the tour guide person strings a wire between two trees and teaches you how to use it, then he climbs the tree so you can be roped in while you climb. You then use these little pegs to climb the tree. This was the scariest... More

My son and I had an exhilarating time being the only participants for our Redwood Canopy Tour. Adam was our guide, and was friendly, patient, and encouraging. We were looking more for a tree-climbing experience rather than ziplining experience, as we've had done plenty of ziplining before, and this was perfect. What to expect: 1) Receive training on how to... More

One of the activities that we had promised our son and his wife while on our Pacific Northwest vacation was a canopy zipline tour. We were going to have our more relaxed time while in Arcata/Eureka, thus decided to book with a company close to this area. We booked with North Coast Adventure for their canopy tour. Good directions were... More

CJ, We are sorry your experience did not match up to your expectations. We are very proud of our hands-on, low volume Redwood Canopy Tour. All of our pictures are taken on site and our website description walks our clients through (step by step) every climb, zip, and differentiation. Good luck on your next adventure! More

I booked my son a Marine on this tour after his return from deployment. I figured a Marine would love it right? He brought his girlfriend who was probably more excited even. They did the ground school with their guide Ari, who was very thorough and patient teaching them how Tod verbal commands and step through the experience before climbing.... More

I booked the Canopy Tour online and got a PayPal confirmation so I thought the trip was booked. When we showed up, the guide had no record of us supposed to be there. There was another older couple there who was in town the whole week so they agreed to change days which worked well for us. As a side... More

My fiance and I took a canopy tour with North Coast Adventure Centers. Treat (our guide) was awesome. We felt safe the whole time and the zip lines were exciting. The extra climb up the redwood at the end was so exhilarating! Definitely do this if you are in the area!

I just recently participated in a North Coast Adventure Center canopy tour. The staff was well qualified and made me feel very safe. I have to admit the tour was a bit more strenuous than I originally thought it would be. But it was fun to learn that I could be coaxed past my pre conceived limits. I would definitely... More
