Discover Your Wild Side at Descanso
People are taking to the trees at Catalina Aerial Adventure, a unique and alluring outdoor experience at Descanso, SoCal’s favorite island entertainment and adventure destination. Catalina Aerial Adventure is just a short stroll from Descanso Beach, but you’ll feel like you’re deep in the woods, as you climb, swing and slide from tree to tree on a series of obstacles suspended in a grove of towering eucalyptus high above the canyon floor.
Five self-guided, self-paced courses—each made up of rope ladders, log bridges, balance beams, zip lines and other challenging elements—are arranged in beginner (2), intermediate (2) and advanced (1) configurations, offering aerial excitement for everyone, regardless of skill or athletic ability. Please read our policies and requirements before purchasing your Catalina Aerial Adventure tickets.
