The island’s newest adventure has quickly become a must-do activity, with visitors young and young at heart returning to challenge the Catalina Aerial Adventure again and again.
Located in a grove of eucalyptus trees at the top of Descanso Canyon, the Catalina Aerial Adventure is composed of mini-ziplines, suspension bridges, cargo nets, log bridges, balance beams and more. Perfect for families, teens and everyone with an adventurous spirit, this new Catalina Island activity takes about an hour and half and has been getting rave reviews.
Five courses are available with two beginner courses, two intermediate courses and one advanced course. Helpful guides are available to offer support and advice no matter which course you decide to challenge. Beginner courses are the perfect way to get the lay of the land on the Catalina Aerial Adventure and – depending on your sense of adventure – you can then move on to challenge the more advanced courses.
The Catalina Aerial Adventure is open seven days a week, weather permitting. Adventurers should wear closed toe shoes and must be at least 55 inches tall. For more details or to book your own adventure, click here.
