Ketchikan Zipline Adventure

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After pickup in Ketchikan, head to the zipline course at Herring Cove, an 8-mile (13-km) drive from town along a scenic coastal road. When you arrive, hop in a 4x4 all-terrain Mercedes Unimog for the ride up a steep rainforest hill to the canopy chalet.
    As your experienced and well-trained guides fit you with state-of-the-art equipment, including a harness, helmet and gloves, listen to zipline instructions and safety tips. Then climb up to the first platform and start your adventure.
    Zoom through the air across eight dual-cable ziplines, looking down on the dense canopy of spruce, hemlock and cedar trees that make up Tongass National Forest. Between the starting zipline of just 100 feet (30 meters) to the heart-pounding 850-foot (260-meter) ‘Ben’s Revenge’ line, you’ll fly over salmon-spawning streams and tidal estuaries, and have the chance to spot native wildlife like bald eagles and black bears.
    In addition to the eight ziplines, the course includes three suspension bridges and a nature trail so you can maximize your opportunities to see wildlife and natural features like Eagle Creek Falls. Your guides are present on all the platforms to help you take off and land safely at each one.
    The final zipline brings you out of the rainforest and over a grassy wetland, where you’ll land at a 55-foot (17-meter) viewing tower. Admire your lush surroundings, and then finish your zipline adventure by rappelling to the ground. Take time to look at your photos in the general store and pick up a few souvenirs to remember your experience before returning back to downtown Ketchikan.
    Please note: Previous ziplining experience is not required, but be aware that this zipline course is designed for those who have done it in the past and/or are looking for a more challenging and exciting experience.

    Great experience. Guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. The zip lines were exciting but not too scary. The scariest part was actually as the end when you had to step off the platform and rappel to the ground.
