My boyfriend and I had an excellent time on our Canopy Climbing adventure. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a good teacher. He taught us how to use the equipment, and how the rope system works without harming the trees. He emphasized safety while still making the experience fun. There was one other couple on our trip, and they had a bit of an issue with some fear of heights setting in about halfway up the tree. Our guide stayed with them for a while and was very patient, and we were allowed to continue to the top. Climbing using ascenders can be a bit taxing, but you can take as many breaks as you want. I'm glad we made it all the way up because the view of Deception Pass from the top of a huge Douglas fir was stunning. And just being in the canopy of a forest, seeing from a vantage-point that normally is reserved for birds and squirrels was an unforgettable experience. It makes you feel very close to the life all around you, and the tree supporting you.
I chose this rating because there wasn't a higher one. The instruction was upbeat and careful. The instructor was encouraging, knowledgeable and informative. The process looked harder than I thought but was not as hard as it looked. And the view from as high up as I got was spectacular. I am so glad we did this.
This was an amazing one-of-a-kind experience. I gained a great appreciation for the ancient and majestic tree we climbed and loved being able to see the forest from above. The views from our perch were extraordinary and especially nice at sunset. Leo offered great personal care in helping me get to the tree top along with the younger members of our group. I highly recommend this experience!
