ZIPStream’s Castaway Canopy Zip Line Adventure (ZCCA) is a fully guided Zip Line Eco Canopy Tour lead by professionally trained and certified guides! Come enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the beautiful St. Augustine Aquarium grounds and an aerial trip through a corner of Wild Florida.

Seven zip lines and four bridges allow you and your group to traverse the canopy above the Aquarium and through the woods. On your trek you’ll get up close and personal with several tree species including Brutus, our beautiful Laurel Oak, in whose boughs resides Johnny Castaway’s treehouse! If you’re fortunate you may get the opportunity to be scolded by one of our resident grey squirrels for invading their living room, or hear the distinctive cry of the red shouldered hawks that call our woods home. You’ll zip through the air while learning about the ecology of Florida and the connection between our wetlands and the health of oceans while engaging with our fun, knowledgeable and entertaining guides! 

If you have never experienced the exhilaration and fun of a zip lining adventure, ZCCA is the perfect first experience for you! Our guides are extensively trained and certified by our sister company The Adventure Guild (TAG), an industry leader and accredited Professional Vendor Member (PVM) of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. So before you ever step in to a harness you can be sure that everything at ZCCA has been constructed to exacting standards and that our personnel know their stuff! 

In addition to the security provided by a professionally designed and constructed course and highly trained staff, ZCCA also employs ISC’s Smart Snap, 100% tie-off belay system, which means that at no time during the course of the adventure can a guest accidentally or intentionally be disconnected from the life safety system, which helps adventure seekers conquer their fears and fully embrace the experience of zipping through the air and being high in the tree canopy!

  • An adventurous spirit and a good perspective! ZIPStream’s Castaway Canopy Adventure is outdoors in sunny Florida, so guests should expect heat and humidity during much of the year.
