I was so nervous to zip line but my husband wanted to go so I agreed. It was amazing! Scott and Ray were our tour guides and they were great. At no time did I feel unsafe since they check and re-check all of the equipment and the security straps. It was so AWESOME!

I did this tour with a group of friends and it was a blast. Not only were the views great and the zip lining exhilarating, the guides shared a great many facts about the history of the island, it's owners, the flora and fauna and they were very nice, friendly and super silly too. We had a great time here!

We did this with our 8 and 11 year old daughters and it was amazing! Kids loved it as much as we did and I will do it again for sure. The guides were friendly and very funny and clearly love their work. What an amazing family adventure!

Weather was rainy but we still had so much fun. I am a bit of a wuss, and it was quite high up but our guides made it a fun experience. They were friendly and loads of fun. Would recommend to anyone.

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

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
