This eco-adventure explores the rainforest canopy with a flight over 8 zip lines, 3 aerial bridges and a rappel element. A 4x4 Unimog will transport you to the mountain top out-fitting shelter where you will be fitted with safety equipment and taught the basics of zip-lining. From 135 feet above the forest floor, you'll traverse zip lines ranging from 175 feet to the 850-foot pulse-pounding ""Ben's Revenge"". Tree top platforms and 3 hanging sky bridges - offer breathtaking views of the forest and frequent wildlife sighting, especially wild black bears.

The final zipline emerges from the rainforest and transports you over lush grassy wetlands to a viewing tower, 55 feet above ground. Rappel to the ground and gear-down at the base camp, where you will be presented with a custom cast Alaska Canopy Adventures medal in recognition of your achievement.

Time permitting you are invited to tour the historic Fleenor Sawmill, observe a Master Native Totem Carver at work before exploring a garden of completed totem poles and visit the Alaska Raptor Center's Ketchikan exhibit to see their amazing birds of prey up close. Complimentary snack and beverage provided before returning to your ship.
