Southeast Exposure Outdoor Adventure Center in Ketchikan Alaska

Zipline Adventure Park

Different from all the other zip experiences, you can swing, scramble, climb and zip your way along this giant jungle gym in Alaska's forest canopy. This is a fun recreation for friends and family in a perfect setting - high in the lush green canopy of Southeast Alaska’s temperate rainforest.

Zip over water

Your excursion begins as you board your motor coach for a scenic, narrated 25 minute drive out of downtown Ketchikan to Knudson Cove, an "off the beaten track" waterfront property in the Tongass National Forest-your playground for the next 2 hours. Before you begin professional guides will instruct and outfit you with the best safety equipment in an open air forest pavilion. Then the adventure begins as gravity pulls you along seven ziplines. You will catch glimpses of bald eagles and the ocean below as you glide through old growth cedars, fly into an ancient tree onto the Eagle's Nest Platform, traverse a swaying log, swing across rope loops, feel the speed and acceleration of landing on a one of a kind ocean platform located 50’ over the water, and finally the rush of zipping to the ground.

Once back on ground, if you still haven't had enough, head over to the 50-foot climbing tower where guides will show you 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. Don’t worry! These ziplines are easy. There is no hand braking. Braking systems are state of the art. For the less adventurous members of your party, guides can assist you to skip elements. After your adventure, there is time to shop for souvenirs before boarding your motor coach for the return drive back to the pier. Ready to zip? Then come out and zip! Don’t miss out on this unique and supernatural rainforest canopy experience with Ketchikan’s most experienced adventure company!

Ketchikan to Clover Pass



This was a last minute add to our trip, and by far one of the highlights. Anyway wanting to do zip line, I would suggest this activity. Not only do you get the zip line action it adds in all these sweet rope course work. Bottom line, if you stop at Ketchikan you have to stop do this adventure.

Rainforest Zipline and ropes adventure - several members of our larger group did this excursion and all had a great time. The tour guide met us at the designated spot and everyone at the ropes course was helpful and supportive. Everyone got some exercise and some great laughs.

We weren’t sure if we could handle this much adventure, but we did! We had amazing guides who were very professional and really focused on safety. They cheered us on every stretch of the way. This is something that we never thought a couple of 50+ year olds could do, but we did it and have the photos to prove it thanks to Brian and Greg, our guides!

We thoroughly enjoyed our zipline adventure! We were a little afraid that our ages (58 & 53) would limit our fun, but that fear was put to rest after our first zipline run. After the ziplines, I even managed to climb half way up the optional medium level rock wall and repel down! We both felt perfectly safe the whole time thanks to our very capable guides. Because we booked thru Shore Trips, we arrived before the tour buses. We were given a private tour around the grounds while waiting for the tour buses to arrive and got to see a young bald eagle perched within 100 feet of us. A thoroughly fantastic adventure!

The zipline experience in Ketchikan was terrific. We were met at the pier by our guide, who gave us an impromptu history of the area as we drove to the facility. I’m a bit of a wimp, but the team gave me such a feeling of confidence that I tackled the ropes course and the ziplining eagerly. I even made it partway up the climbing wall! I’m so proud of myself! I had such a great time, and so did my husband. I’d definitely do it again, and recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure.

We had a wonderful experience on our shoretrips in Alaska. The zipline was fun and uncrowded. We loved the unhurried and relaxed pace.

Our zipline trip for 13 people was great. It was well done by the owners and employees, safe and enjoyed by all.
