It does not take long for your Ketchikan adventure zipline cruise excursion to begin. Your transfer excursion guide, who is driving a custom all-terrain 4x4 Unimog, meets you directly at your Ketchikan cruise ship pier. You will drive for 25 minutes along the coast before turning inland and uphill to reach the zipline base camp. Your shore excursion guides will meet you upon arrival and help you with outfitting. Then, there is an orientation to the zip line activity. Now it is time for your canopy zipline guides to transfer you 15 minutes to the top of the course and introduce you to eight dual cable zip lines that zig and zag through the Alaska rain forest. Along the zipline excursion course, there is also a lofty suspension bridge with aerial views of Bear Creek and platforms attached to huge Western Hemlock trees that will allow you to rappel from platform to platform and again to the ground after the final zipline.
Experience panoramic ocean, forest, and mountain views from the tree platforms on this exciting and safe Ketchikan zipline cruise excursion adventure at the lush Herring Cove rainforest reserve, located an eight-mile drive along the coast from Ketchikan. In addition to tall stands of spruce, hemlock, and cedar, the ecosystem here supports an extensive wildlife population. Although one cannot guarantee wildlife sightings, guests often see eagles and bears throughout this Alaska Zipline Cruise Excursion from Ketchikan! The total time on the zipline course is approximately 100 minutes.
Returning to the excursion base camp 10 minutes down the hill, you will gear down while you compare zip line experiences with your fellow travelers. You will receive a special award in recognition of your achievement and have the chance to sample a local Alaskan snack and enjoy a hot beverage. You will also have approximately 20 minutes of free time to view your action photograph and shop in the General Store.
Then load back into the Unimog for the 25-minute trip back to your Ketchikan cruise ship pier.
