Just wondering if anyone out there has done the canopy zip-line excursion in Ketchikan. If you have done it, what is it like? If you haven't done it, have you heard people talk about it? I have pre-booked this for myself and my wife (7/17 Princess cruise from Vancouver) and am trying to get some feedback/opinions on what appears to be a very different adventure.

Thanks - Kevin

Been on one of these in the Carribean (Jamaica) and its a hoot. Kinda of expensive, but most of the tours are over priced anyway. Just don't forget to look around while you are zipping. And you better not be afraid of heights. One of my daughters almost backed out, it took a lot of convincing to get her to go, but once she did the first "zip" she got past the fear for the fun of the zip... I imagine that the Alasaka ones are bascially the same.. you only need some tall trees to do this with.

Thanks for your responses - it looks like this is going to be something quite different. Give me a holler before you go in August and I will let you know what it is like -

We recently did the zip-line in Juneau-It was excellent. Worth every penny. That one excursion was such an experience that it was the highlight of our trip. It was awesome!!!
