Your Ketchikan Zip Line Park Excursion begins as you board your motorcoach at your Ketchikan cruise ship pier for a scenic, narrated 25-minute drive out of downtown Knudson Cove, an "off the beaten track" waterfront property in the Tongass National Forest, and your zip line excursion playground for the next 2 hours. The zip line canopy excursion park includes eight ziplines and eight unique aerial traverses, which make this Alaska shore excursion from Ketchikan a diverse and interactive adventure excursion experience for everyone!
Before you begin your Ketchikan Zip Line Park Shore Excursion, the professional excursion guides will instruct and outfit you in the open-air forest pavilion with the best safety equipment. After ground instruction, your 90-minute canopy adventure begins as gravity will pull you along a series of eight zip lines and eight connecting elements. You will catch glimpses of bald eagles and the Ketchikan Alaskan ocean below as you glide through old-growth cedars. Fly into an ancient cedar tree onto the Eagle's Nest Platform, traverse a swaying log, swing across rope loops, feel the speed and acceleration of landing onto an ocean platform located 50' over the water, and the rush of zipping to a soft landing.
Once back on the ground, head over to the 50 - foot climbing tower where your zip line excursion guides will show you the techniques needed to climb to the top. A circular staircase inside the tower enables others to climb up, take in the mountain and ocean views, and snap photos of climbers proudly ringing the bell at the top of the wall.
This Ketchikan Zipline course is for everyone! These zip lines are easy and safe. There is no hand braking. For the less adventurous members of your Ketchikan Alaska shore excursion party, guides can assist you to skip elements.
After your Adventure Zip Line Cruise Park Excursion, you will have approximately 20 minutes to sit down, use the restrooms or visit the small store for a souvenir or to purchase a beverage before boarding your 25-minute transfer back to town and your Ketchikan cruise ship terminal.
