Catalina Island Zip Line Eco Tour
From US$129.00
Overview
Experience the thrill of soaring 600 feet above sea level, across five high-speed zip lines on this incredible Catalina Island zip line eco tour. After a safety briefing and equipment fitting, you'll cruise along 1,100 lineal feet of line  (335 meters) — close to three-quarters of a mile — and fly some 300 feet (91 meters) above scenic canyon floors. Daredevils and thrill-seekers will love reaching speeds of 40 miles per hour as they take flight on this epic adventure.
What to Expect
You will begin by checking in at the Zip Line Eco Tour Base Camp, a 15-20 minute walk from Catalina's central city of Avalon, and then gear up for your tour. After receiving an orientation to the zip line you will be transported to the top of Descanso Canyon, while enjoying picturesque views of the city of Avalon.
Your zip-line adventure begins at the Hog's Back gate, high in the hills near Avalon and descending through Descanso Canyon. You will pause at several eco-stations during your journey, where your guide will give you a presentation on various aspects of Catalina Island, including wildlife, history and ecology. Your tour will end at Descanso Beach after approximately two hours.
All participants on tour are required to hike short distances, ascend and descend stairs, need to be of average mobility and strength, and in reasonably good health. Those with preexisting injuries, back, neck, or heart issues should consult their physician prior to booking this trip.

Beautiful zip line adventure

There are 5 total zip lines on this tour, each one a little different. What I loved the most about these zip lines is that they are fully automated to stop for you...I'm the person who spends the last few seconds on a zip line...More

We're glad that you had a blast with Nate & Justin, Chaitali! Taking that first step off the platform can definitely be frightful. Thanks for zipping with us... and for spending two hours with us, taking in the beautiful ocean views! See you again soon.
