Heritage Beach Horseback Ride & Zip Line from Ocho Rios

This tour is offered for guests staying on island ONLY

Looking for some adventure? Come let one of our guides take you on a 15 minute ride along the scenic north coast to the stables, we guarantee that you will enjoy our beach horseback ride. Its the best on the island, this ride combines history with fun and is the only one of its kind in Jamaica.

Experience riding through the countryside and then going down to the beach for a ride in the ocean. Your tour starts with a short orientation at the Stables.

Then its time to mount up on your horse and visit all the places that we have learnt about, riding by the remains of castles and sugar factories dating back nearly 500 years. Ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first Islanders, their beliefs, habits and existence, before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep rooted history of this area.

On arrival at the beach, refreshments are served in our jungle beach hut, before we strip down to our bathing suits, for a dash through the waves on horseback. For your safety, we keep the saddles on, so you don't have to worry about staying on!!! Our return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other water birds fish in the shallow waters. Through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.

A history lesson and beach ride in one. After you are finished riding, you will meet your driver at the back of the Stables.

Next, we will take you into the hills to Hevans Scent cor some more fun and adventure.

Upon arrival at Hevans Scent each person is greeted by guides 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.

Each Zip Line ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed your safety instructions comes next then it is unto the first Zip Line.

LEAP OF FAITH
Each person is required to climb a staircase, once on the launch platform the instructor give you the final briefing and then you are ready to zip 500 ft, across the valley, you are then met on the other side by two members of staff, who take you off the line and then it is a short walk up to ride number two

THE RETURN
Once clipped to the zip line at ground level, You are required to run to the edge and Jump off, this gives you the momentum to traverse across the valley back to where it all began.

THE SCREAMER, (giant swing)
This is the ride of your life. One two or three sit in a seat once connected safely to the bar, an automatic witch takes the group up to 60ft in the air. When the motor stops one person must pull a ripcord this releases the seat holding all the riders, they then swing at 180 degrees. And keep moving till it all comes to a stop.

AWESOME (Zip Line)
This is located across the other side of the road, is the longest ride on the Island 1200ft across a scenic valley. No staircase so we belay or you up to a platform 50ft in the air. For this ride you must weight more than 110lbs and no more than 250lbs. It is a great ride and it gives you the thrill of a lifetime. Once you get to the other side of the valley, two members of staff then take you off the line. A walk up the hillside pass goats and cows lead you to the fastest ride.

SPEEDY
You will need to once again climb a staircase to about 10ft off the ground. After a safety check then from the platform you push off holding up your legs as you skim close to the ground, picking up speed all the time on your way across a scenic valley, back to where you left a few moments ago.
