Before you contact us, please visit our website to learn about our tree-climbing events and instructional courses. After you have read over the information, you can book a climbing event by clicking any "BOOK NOW" button on the website. Please choose any available date and time slot. If the system does not let you book a particular date and time slot, that simply means it is already booked and/or not available. Please choose any other available date and time slot. Our minimum requirement is a 4-person event. Sorry, we cannot make any exceptions to this minimum requirement. You must pay the full amount upon booking an event. Booking an event is the only way to guarantee a date and time slot.

Please note, Canopy Climbers is required to give our local municipalities (the owners of the beautiful local parks in which we climb) at least five (5) days notice to climb trees on premises. We cannot book a climb any sooner than that. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but we must respectfully follow their rules. Please be advised that we cannot book events over the phone. However, feel free to email us with any other questions you may have.

We really enjoyed our climbing adventure with Danny. The instruction and background were helpful and engaging for all of us, including a 9 year old and 11 year old. Danny was well prepared and fully set up when we arrived. The two hours was just right and the climbing tree location was convenient and beautiful.

We were in town visiting U of Florida from St. Louis and wanted to see what else was in the area around the University. My daughter is 18 and my son is 16, both thinking about coming here for college. They are both big rock climbers and so were excited to try tree climbing. It was unique and a lot... More

We brought a group of children and youth for a group tree climbing experience and everyone has a fantastic time! Danny and Al were knowledgeable, gracious, great with the kids and patient! Everyone had a blast and even those afraid of heights couldn't help wanting to climb higher and hang upside down! Thank you all for an incredible day!!

I brought 20 high school students to climb for their first time. We all enjoyed the climb very much! The instructors were extremely kind and patient with all of us "rookies" and made the day very enjoyable. I look forward to doing this again sometime!

I took Danny's Basic Tree Climbers Course as part of my training as a graduate student in biology. Danny was very knowledgeable, thorough, and fun to be around. I'm very confident taking the skills he taught us home with me. The park we climbed in was beautiful and part of our payment is donated to the parks we climb in!... More

This was such a unique and calming experience (as calming as being 40 feet up in a tree can be!) Danny is super knowledgeable and friendly, and he takes great pictures! Overall it was a TON of fun and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the outdoors. If you can, do the picnic up in the tree- that's... More
