Fun group and excellent guides. It's a decent course. The second line is the best, very high and long. It's a good course for beginners and (as I stated with the second line) good for those with some experience. I also liked they allowed my son at 60 pounds to zip, tandem, but at least he got to participate. Overall,... More

As our first stop on a Carnival Cruise, my friend and I went on the zipline excursion. I'm a worse case scenario thinker and was freaked out by the idea of the zipline but my friend really wanted to do it so we did. The first leg was so super scary for me but as we zipped our way down... More

A very convenient and comfortable process. We researched online although we made our reservations via a phone call (for my wife's birthday). We parked and departed from Long Beach on the Catalina Express. We chose the 11:00 am departure boat with a return on the 6:00 pm boat. The express boat is free on your birthday and about 65 minutes... More

Took a day trip to Catalina Island. The boat ride from Long Island on the Catalina Express and back was excellent ($74 / person). We bought the Zip Line Tour ($125/person) at the Catalina Express Boat Dock. Once you get to Catalina Island (Avalon) you can eat right at the pier, and there are J shops too. To get to... More

This is the first time I have visited Catalina Island and tried Zip line. It was amazing! Our guides were very safety conscious and helpful. The views were breathtaking and the experience was awesome! It was definitely worth the money. We went as a family, even my in-laws did it with us. The whole course was 5 lines and about... More

Listen, I have been on bigger and better Zip Lines in other Countries BUT this one was incredibly FUN and worth every second. I am not sure if it was the staff or the Zip Line that I had more fun with. Art and Juan were THE BEST!!!!! There is a reason for all the good reviews!

The Zip Line Eco Tour was a highlight our of trip. First tip? Go online and shop discounts and deals, we purchased our Ferry & Zip together and saved significantly up to $50 each depending on day/time. The Zip locale is about a 12 minute walk from downtown Avalon towards the Wrigley Casino and then around the bend. Don't wear... More

Great zip line with great views. Start is just past the Descanso Beach Club, about 30 minute walk from the Catalina Express. Long shorts ok. Wear closed toe shoes. Don't wear a hat as they give you a helmet. (Essential, as you will bump into the zip line at attachment on 4 of the 5 lines.) Combo ticket available with... More

What an awesome time!! Lorenzo and David were fantastic tour guides. They were professional yet joked with our group which enabled us to cheer one another on as we took turns "being first". The views, the excitement, the thrill of adventure. If this is on your "bucket list" hurry and pre-book your zipline tour. Summer is coming and we were... More
