What to expect and what not to expect with this Ketchikan shore excursion

Round-trip transportation is provided, and you'll start the journey with a pick-up right near the cruise docks in downtown Ketchikan. Venture out towards Herring Cove, and arrive at the Eagle Creek ziplining base camp surrounded by the Tongass National Forest. Towering Sitka spruce and cedar dominate this area, and you won't be looking up at them for too long because pretty soon you'll be ziplining in between these monstrous treetops! After a quick orientation, gear fitting and safety briefing, put your faith in your trusty guides and begin the first of 8 ziplines ranging from 100 ft up to 850 ft in length!

  • 8 zip stations and 3 skybridges
  • Keep your eyes out for wildlife on this tour!
  • Off-road Unimog transport up the mountain
  • All gear, equipment, and transportation provided for you

Did we mention this ziplining course also backs up to a wildlife sanctuary? Eagles and sometimes even bears are spotted below while you soar through the canopy above. Skybridges connect 3 of the zip platforms and provide great photo opportunities of friends and family. The highest point, 135 ft above the forest floor, provides incredible views of the landscape, and you'll finish the last zip station over the grassy wetlands before arriving back at base camp. If you're looking to get into the Alaskan outdoors with a tinge of adventure built into the mix, we highly recommend this excursion for you!

You've got questions, we've got answers
Q:How many ziplines are included on this tour?
This tour consists of 8 ziplines and 3 Skybridges connecting some of the platforms.
Q:Will we make it back to the ship in time? What if we don't?
We've never had a guest miss their ship and we only schedule tours that work well with your cruise ship's itinerary. We leave plenty of cushion so you can confidently book your trips independently. If you were to miss your ship’s departure through no fault of your own on a tour that has been booked with us, we'll get you to your next port of call.
Q:What makes this zipline tour different from any other in Alaska?
It's true that you'll find several ziplining options along the cruise route, and this one can be distinguished mainly by its location. Nestled in a private reserve in the Tongass National Forest, wildlife sightings are much more common on this ziplining excursion than any other in Alaska.
Q:Is ziplining safe?
Safety is fundamental to this tour, and the course is inspected weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually. Dual ziplines means you are connected to 2 cables while ziplining, and you are connected at 4 points at all times throughout the course, even between stations. For each group of zipliners, you will have 2 certified guides that are versed in First Aid/CPR and AED certification.
Q:What should I bring?
Some guests show up with the clothes on their back and the smile on their face. Other guests show up with a small backpack that contains an extra clothing layer, a bottle of water, a snack and other personal items. So, it's up to you! Space is often limited on the shuttle, so it's best to keep your items to a minimum, but bring what you need. While on the tour, you're welcome to use your camera to snap photos of the beautiful scenery, yourself and your group! A smaller camera works best, but if you're comfortable bringing your DSLR you may; however, they can be burdensome while zipping at times. Keep in mind that you will be several stories above the forest floor at times while ziplining, so if you drop your camera it will likely not survive; for this reason, be sure that your camera has secure neck & wrist straps or is compact enough to fit in the small zippered hand pocket of the provided rain jacket. If bringing a large camera, the staff ultimately determines if your camera may be taken on the course, as it pertains to your safety and the safety of other guests and our guides. Once you arrive at the zipline course, your guides will collect the group's belongings and secure them. Upon completing your exciting tour, you will be able to quickly retrieve your personal items!
