Dunn’s River Falls and Zip Line Adventure tour from Falmouth

This wet adventurous combo promises to be a lot of fun and an adrenaline rush. First you will be picked up directly from your cruise ship pier by one of our friendly driver/guides. He will then take you on a journey along the north coast of Ocho Rios viewing local towns and then up to about 2000 feet in the hills of St Ann for heart pounding thrills, adventure and breath taking scenery on our Ocho Rios Zip Line adventure at Hevans Scent 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 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.

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 a 30 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.

After you have finished you will be taken on a short ride along the north coast to the world famous Dunn's River Falls. You may have heard about this truly popular and incredible 600 feet water falls that has challenged and fascinated families for generations.

Your tour includes admission to the falls and transportation to and from your cruise ship port. We generally take visitors to the falls first thing in the morning and avoid all the crowds associated with large organized pre-booked excursions from the cruise liners. This way you visitors can enjoy Dunn's River Falls more

Dunn's River Falls is the number one tourist attraction in Ocho Rios and one of Jamaica’s natural treasures. It has a truly remarkable atmosphere, within the layout there are beautiful cascading falls, which is a great pleasure and challenge to all visitors.

For those who do not want to climb, but prefer a less adventurous experience, the beautiful impressive sights and views of the falls alone are worth it. These visitors may view the action from the adjacent stairways and the beautiful surroundings all to the sounds of gushing water on the falls. Dunn's River Falls and park consist of a beach with water sports activities, a Craft Market, picnic areas and Food Court, but the main activity is climbing the Falls - which is a fun group activity!

The Park requires that you wear (Aquamarine) water shoes to make this wet but easily navigable climb. If you don’t bring your own they can be rented or purchased on property.

The park also provides guides to assist you with your climb. there is no charge for these guides but it's customary to tip them. They take groups of fifteen or more persons on the climb up the Falls. They are really helpful during your climb and will help you to enjoy the experience more. However, using a falls guide is not mandatory and left up to your comfort level and confidence in making this journey. The climb to the top of the falls takes (approximately 45minutes) from the base on the beach.

If you do not want to continue your climb at some point during the journey or would like to start at a particular point on the falls, there are several points along the way of the adjoining path that you can easily access the River. Over decades Dunn's River Falls has offered millions of explorers an instant connection to nature.

After you have finished your climb we will take back to Ocho Rios for a bit of duty free shopping before returning to your cruise ship or Hotel.
