Zip Line and River Tubing Adventure Tour

This incredible adventure begins with you being picked up from your cruise Ship Pier in Ocho Rios or Hotel in Ocho Rios or Runaway Bay and taken on a short ride along the north coast viewing local towns and then up to Hevens Scent a Hill top retreat located about 2000 feet in the hills of St Ann for heart pounding thrills, adventure and breath taking scenery.

Our Ocho Rios Zip Line adventure is at a hilltop retreat which in addition to thrills and adrenaline rush offers unforgettable scenery and moments of peaceful meditation.

After a scenic drive of about 35 minutes you arrive at this retreat which is an innovative, eco-tourism experience that both adults and children can enjoy. Based at a location that affords breath taking views, exhilarating activities and down to earth homeliness. Upon arrival, each person is greeted by a guide with a natural fruit drink in a Bamboo or coconut cup orientation and safety briefing will follow.

This is followed by reading and signing the disclaimer and health declaration forms. This ensures that everyone needs to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.

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. What an adrenaline rush? try it again if you like!

Zip number two Zip Line 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. Then you free fall for 12 feet before you travel forward on the line for about 40 feet and you then alight from the middle. Next you may try the screamer, which is a giant swing that which soars 80 feet in the air. This can take up to three persons at a time, who will fly up to approximately 60 feet and sent flying 180 degrees over the valley. Let me tell you about adrenaline!

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 can dally awhile in one of the gazebos or lay back and relax in a hammock on route.

After all this action and adventure it's time to relax, take a break and unwind with a snack and fresh fruit drink. You may sit in a swinging chair or lie in a hammock and let the cool Jamaican breeze relieve you of all the stresses of life. If you prefer, one of our guides can take you on a30 minute nature walk through the lush greenery and beautiful landscapes.

This is a family adventure and provides an atmosphere perfect for families to spend quality time with loved ones.

The adventure continues as your driver/guide will take you along the coast and then head about two miles inland to begin your river tubing adventure on the White River. On your way to the river, you will get a taste of Jamaica as you pass through local neighbourhoods.

When you arrive at the White River, you will be briefed, placed one person to a river tube and with two experienced river guides who head groups of 5-15 persons at a time down stream. If the group is smaller, you will be provided with one guide to every five tubes. The river tubing guides are fun, very helpful and attentive as you go down stream, they will help you to have fun but always with your safety in mind. Life vest are also available for those who prefer these and there are changing rooms and bath rooms at this point. The tubes are filled out with a bottom which helps you to enjoy your journey.

On your trip down the river you will go through seven rapids and placid pools. The tropical scenery is amazing as you glide downstream on this 45 minutes to 1 hour journey. This is a trip that you wont be forgetting anytime soon.

There is a midway stop as you go downstream where you will have the opportunity to stop and swing on a rope and fall into the river which is about 20ft. deep at this section, before continuing downstream in your tube. Your guide/driver will safeguard your belongings while you go tubing.

After you are finished, your driver/guide will then take you back to your cruise ship. However, you also have the option of going to the Island Village shopping centre or Tajmahal shopping centre which are both walking distance from your cruise ship pier. Here you may do some shopping for souvenirs at the Harley Davidson Store or go do the pool slide at Jimmy Buffets famous Margarittaville.
