We are open on that Date. We do trips year around, but don't do trips on many Sundays and Holidays.
Hi, - I want to check the availability of following tours for July 2nd. 1) The Big Dells Kayak tour for 2 people. 2) Peak 1 zipline for 1 person. - Also, is it possible for other family members to come to the beach area while 2 of us are doing the Kayaking tour? Are there any shaded areas or picnic benches in the beach area? - What time are the Peak 1 zipline tour? Thanks.

How long does zip lining, kayaking and climbing take? Would it take a whole day or a few hours?

Agree, we went Kayaking only and we were pretty tired after doing just that. I would say do one or two activities per day. The guys at VI can advise as well when you call. They are very helpful.
