Tour Details

This is an innovative eco-tourism experience that both adults and children can enjoy. Based 2,000 ft up into the hills of St Ann, the location affords breath taking views, exhilarating activities and a chance to meet the locals.

Upon arrival, each person is greeted with a natural fruit drink in a Bamboo or coconut cup. Zip line orientation then takes place, followed by a 10 minute chat with Mama TunTun - she knows all about herbs and their benefits. Most people in the surrounding communities go to her as an alternative to the doctor; she will explain that some things can be bought from your local health shop. Harnessing then takes place, and onto the first Zip. The climb is 30 feet up into the air, using the staircase or the outside staples whilst attached to a belay rope. From the platform you zip 440 feet across the valley, where catchers are waiting to remove you from the line. Zip no 2 is a little bit more challenging; there are no stairs so you must climb up the staples on the outside of the pole whilst attached to a safety line. (approximately 20 feet) Then you free fall for 12 feet before you travel forward on the line for about 40 feet . The 3rd Zip is 1100 ft which is the longest of all. From each of the zips you can take a leisurely walk back to base, via numerous tracks flanked by heliconias, crotons, plantains, and almond and coconut trees.

You will then drive to Dunns River Falls. The falls drop in a cascade (or steps) from a height of 600 feet down to sea level. They are constantly fed by beautiful crystal clear water running down from the nearby mountains and rain forest. It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to make the entire climb. There are places along the way where you are able to slide down into pools of water, take a swim and climb again. There are local "guides" at the falls who will lead you up. These guides are separate from your tour and will expect a gratuity when you reach the top.

Please note: Although there are changing facilities at the falls, we suggest wearing your swimming suit under comfortable beach clothing. Water shoes can be rented at the falls if you do not have sneakers or your own water shoes. Flip flops are not recommended. Climbing the falls is not recommended to guests with back or hip/knee concerns. Zip line does not accommodate tandem riders.

Tour pickup times begin approximately one hour PRIOR to the tour departure time listed. Full details will be outlined in your electronic ticket.
