We’re locals who are passionate about sharing all that we love about Alaska.
That’s why we create great adventures that show off our Alaskan beauty and thrills with enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. We hire and train our staff for exceptional customer service and keep our state-of-the-art equipment up to the highest standards for safety. So you get authentic Alaska, guided by those who love her.
From the sky, you can see the grandeur of the fjords. From the zip line, you can feel the adrenaline as you soar through the treetops. From behind the wheel of your kart, you experience the landscape as a living thing. From the ground, you’ll see bears, eagles and other wildlife. No matter if you’re at elevation 0’ or 3,000’, you’ll experience the adventure that is Alaska. There’s a tour for every age, interest and fitness level. From an informative walk in the rainforest to a stunning flight over a fjord, there’s an awesome, must-have experience waiting for you.
We are local and have a deep Alaskan legacy. We have been serving the local community for more than 40 years, first through Taquan Air and then later, through ground tours. Owner Brien Salazar is deeply committed to the region, supplying scheduled and charter service to remote towns, providing year-round and seasonal job opportunities and sharing his love for the world’s largest temperate forest with locals and tourists alike. We support our community with volunteer time, donations and more.
What we'll do
Get off the ground in a thrilling exploration of the rainforest – flying through the air on eight ziplines.
This eco-rainforest experience is for both beginners and experts. It features ziplines, tree platforms, and rappelling and is perfect for families, groups and first-time zipliners. How’s that for a memorable and fun tree top zipline adventure?
Here’s how your aerial Ketchikan rainforest adventure will get off the ground.
You’ll start out on wheels with an eight-mile narrated coastal drive to Herring Cove, where you will then ride up a steep hillside in a custom all-terrain 4×4 Unimog to the briefing camp. After outfitting and orientation, your guides will introduce you to the ziplines that will take you on an aerial view of the rainforest below.
An Eagle’s perspective of the Tongass National Forest Located on the border of the vast Tongass National Forest, you’re going to see everything from panoramic ocean vistas, to forest and mountain landscapes as far as your eye can see. You’ll have plenty of time to take in the scenery from the tree platforms. Along with tall stands of spruce, hemlock and cedar, the ecosystem here thrives and supports a diverse seasonal wildlife population.
After your adventure in the trees, you’ll gear down at the base camp. Stop by the General Store, where you can see the pictures taken during your zipline experience, picking out the ones you’d like to buy and shopping for mementos of your Alaska adventure.
Before you head back to the dock have your camera ready as you explore the totem park, historic sawmill, watch blacksmith at work and see an eagle up close at the Alaska Raptor Center exhibit.
