About Zip Line Tours:
The art and skill of zip lining (canopy zip lines) was first introduced in Central America. The process was developed for scientists who were studying the unique eco-systems in the rain forests and canopy tops of Costa Rica, as a means of traveling from one tree top to another without having to climb up and down each tree. The landing platforms made ideal observation areas to conduct studies and learn about the different plants and animals that live above ground.
Scientists have found new species never before discovered by exploring the canopy environment. It also provided an elevated view of the forest floor and any activity below.
Zip Adventures is the first canopy zipline in North Florida. It is the longest and most diverse zip line tour in the state of Florida. We utilize 3 towers, 14 zip lines and 2 sky bridges to explore the forest and streams of Northwest Florida. You will soar over the pine wire grass uplands. Then you will enter the hardwood hammock. After leaving the hardwood you will glide onto a platform about an ox-bow lake system. There you will see the unique sand flowing stream named Coldwater Creek. This first adventure is named Forest Flight. In this section of the zipline are 4 historical areas including one of the oldest gristmill dams in Florida Circa 1820.
The second zip line adventure starts after a 1/3 mile hike through a forested pine plantation. After climbing a 60 foot tower you will marvel at the views overlooking thousands of acres of forest lands. You can observe hawks and other birds soaring around you. Your 1st flight takes you beside a 100 year old pine tree overlooking Bass Brink and Coldwater Creek. From there you travel a series of zip lines and a sky bridge with magnificent views of Coldwater Creek. Then from high above Stumpy Alley Beach you will soar 700 feet over Coldwater Creek to land on a low platform. The last climb is on the tallest spiral staircase made from wood harvested in Florida. This 60 foot tower is the last zip line platform and provides the start for your longest zip adventure of the day. You will fly 900 feet over Coldwater Creek dipping down and almost touching the water.
