We had a great time! The captain was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We all learned a lot. Definitely recommend getting there a little early to make sure you get a good seat.

This wonderful canopy walk brings you up into the trees to see the different ecosystems that inhabit the changeable landscapes. The kids love to climb and walk along the swing bridge. The view at the top is the best!

Great view above the tree tops. Beautiful canopy walkway and very well built. It's a wonder how the hard work it took to build this.

Hike up to the top of the tower for a great view that goes for miles and miles! We went on a windy day and there was a little sway at the top.

This was a nice evening surprise. A short swinging bridge leads you to more stairs that leads to an awesome view.
