While planning a trip to Catalina, I decided that my boyfriend and I should go zip lining. He is the thrill seeker. I am not. I do not regret this experience at all! We had the best tour guides (Chris and Justin) who walked us through every step. We took a short ride up the mountain and before we knew... More

My brother and I went on the tour and it was fantastically fun. We had the best guides with a great sense of humor. And it's an eco tour - as an Environmental Scientist - I was totally impressed by their knowledge of the dynamics of the island eco system. It was the first time both of us had zip... More

I went on this with my girlfriend and kids. In our group we had a 8 year old boy that went first on all 12 stations. Amazing ride, great friendly help full funny staff. They made us laugh and enjoyed the ride. The highest part was 350 feet above the ground. You have to add this to your bucket list.... More

My whole family had a great time with this activity! Scott and Luis were hilarious zip-guides, with the perfect blend of joking around and safety reminders. They know so much about the history of the Island as well as environmental aspects, and they're more than willing to share their knowledge. Those guys have a dream job. In summary - DO... More

We had so much fun and this was such a thrill. Although, it would not have been the same without our guides. Big props go out to Christian and Jake for being so friendly, fun and truly enjoying the time they had with us. This was not just zip lining but also a tour from the highest peak on down.... More

Came for my 50th Birthday with a few friends - had a fabulous time, never felt safer, and were thoroughly entertained (and educated) along the way by this dynamic duo. Highly recommend it to all!

Ziplining at Catalina for my girlfriend's birthday couldn't get any better. Much love to our tour guides Nick & Kris for an awesome experience. Ambiance: * From where our shipped dropped us off, we were about 20-25 minutes walking distance to the place.
