First off, the ziplining only takes about an hour, not the 5 hours that the description says. You have to walk a good distance out to the edge of the port compound in order to meet with the driver. The initial drive up the hill in a beat up pick up truck at a nearly 45-degree angle was a great way to start off the adventure. Two-thirds of the way up you get out and hike the rest of it. The two guides ensured that we were safe. When my friend accidentally dropped his camera lens cap into the river they went out of their way and actually found it. That was much appreciated. Flying over and through the rainforest was delightful. The hilly and tropical terrain of the island lends itself perfectly to ziplining. Afterwards, our driver asked us if we wanted to go hold some sloths and monkeys for $10 a person. This turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire trip. I highly recommend it. With the additional sightseeing and monkey/sloth experience, it came out closer to 5 hours.

We had an easy time finding our contact outside the port gate, and it was a very short walk to the zip facility. Our group of six was combined with another group of 5, and together we had two guides and the camera man. The guides were funny (Go Max!) and did tricks that the kids especially enjoyed. This was a really fun excursion. There was no hiking, but afterwards there is a small monkey, deer, and bird animal section. The excursion definitely doesn't take 5 hours, but it was enough time to get off the boat and have fun for the day. They also have an onsite bar and food, but we didn't purchase anything.
This zip line adventure excursion in Roatan for our group of 8 it was the best zip line we have ever done we did the zip line in roatan before but nothing like this one this zip line was the longest zip line we have ever did 17cables tree 23 flatt form tree suspension bridges and a hiking area this zip line was awesome all of the staff are so friendly and helpful we highly recommend this excursion

The zip lining was awesome. We have never gone zip lining before and thoroughly enjoyed this 17 zip lines through the jungle. The excursion said there was a hike with this excursion there was no hike. Also the excursion said it was 5 hours it took us an hour in half to complete and we were left with the rest of the day to figure out what to do. There is not much to do in Roatan itself unless you spend money on an excusion.
really had a great time. zipline was a lot of fun

My family and friends had an awesome time on the zipline. Our guides were the best. They made it fun and exciting. You could tell they were having fun along with us. They let you make it as fun as you wanted it to be. We ate lobster afterwards there on site and one of our group even tried Iguana. Great times. I would highly recommend.

My husband, Bob, wanted to do a Zipline excursion. He ONLY wanted to do the Zipline & not be gone for 5-6 hours. Beings I have very bad back issues, I could not do this. We were picked up by Creg Henry, the owner of Roatan Henry Tours Creg, beings he had room in the vehicle I got to go & watch. Creg Henry, stayed with me so I was not by myself. My husband ENJOYED his way down the hill via several ziplines & Roatan Zipline Adventure had someone taking pictures (we rec a disk, very reasonable priced). There is an area that has several monkeys, a little deer, and parrots all in cages. We did get to hold and play with a couple of the monkeys. They also have an eating area, if you get hungry. A VERY nice excursion and the people were TERRIFIC!!!!*****
We really enjoyed this excursion! Be sure to visit the monkeys afterwards!

Great excursion! Within walking distance of the pier, great guides, breathtaking views, very safe but a great adrenaline rush.
My son and his girlfriend (20's) said this was the highlight of their cruise. Easy to connect with the tour just-off the port. Lots of lines through the trees.
Reviewer: Deborah Sheeler
This excursion was totally worth it! The crew was great and so much fun with so many lines! My 11 year old loved it so much she went on it twice and was doing flips and hanging upside down! I would definitely recommend this excursion to young kids and adults!

Can't say enough good things about this adventure, from a guide on either side helping me up the steep and rugged trail to the top of the first platform. (I'm 70 and out of shape). These folks were entertaining, most helpful and showed great care for our safety. Over the suspension bridges, one always assisted me. My daughter, her husband, my two granddaughters and I think this was the highlight of the cruise. There was also a small manangerie on the site where we played with two capuchin monkeys. They would go from one shoulder to another, like branches. I shared my water with the baby who mostly wanted to chew the plastic cap from the bottle. We hired one of the guides to take us around the island, to a resort beach (very crowded) and to a high overlook to the sea and our ship. I loved the jungle and zipping over and through the canopy like a kid! Don't miss this!!

No helmets, no gloves, no brakes! If you know what you're doing you'll have a great ride; we've done zip lining in Mexico and other Caribbean destinations, very tame compared with this set of more than 20 runs and a few swinging bridges. The guides will let you take more risk than others in the group might prefer! The guides did facilitate an elderly participant who wanted the experience, so they took her on a few bypass routes and also tagged a guide along her while riding. Easy walk from the cruise ship dock, we were done in time for lunch back on the boat.

I bought this excursion through Cruises Only and had a wonderful time. I had never zip-lined before and found it quite exhilarating. I would try it again. Our guides were knowledgeable and safety conscious. GREAT TRIP!!
would definitely recommend this zipline adventure. great trip for the 3 of us
Our guides Peter, Andy, William, and Edward were great. They made it so much fun for everyone. They did tons of tricks and taught you how to do them too. I would do this again in a heart beat. The only problem we had was at the end of the adventure you can go over and see/hold monkeys, and other small animals.....we totally forgot to go and look at the pictures that they took of us! Would have liked to seen and got some of them. So don't forget about them like we did.
Not a fan of heights, but I've always wanted to do this. I'm so glad I did. The guides along the zip lines were so fun and reassuring and helpful. I wanted to do it all over again. The only confusing part was that from our docking point we walked to the zip line. It was fine, I just would have liked to have known that
We have done other ziplines in the past (including one in Roatan), this was by far the best!!! It was so fun, we loved doing tricks!!! It was our favorite excursion of the three we did.
This was much more fun than I had anticipated. I normally do not like heights but my husband talked me into this. I highly recommend it. It is unlike anything I have done before and I would do it again.
Great time, 24 lines so worth the money.
Excellent guide, Excellent value, Fun and Very Enjoyable

Fabulos guides. Made it extra fun.
Reviewer: zippie... lol
was fun to zip thru the trees... guides took very good care of us... (Peter and Alex) ... will do again next year when we go back on the same cruise... Norwegian Dawn ...ENJOY
We pre-booked this excursion before leaving on our cruise. We followed the directions on where to meet the guide and it was very difficult to find them. We were not the only ones who had this problem. This was very frustrating. It was a short 5 minute walk to the ziplining and we really could have done this on our own without booking through this website. The ziplining itself was GREAT! The guides were very safety conscious and we highly recommend them. My husband's Go Pro actually fell off during the zipline (the first run) and the guides were very accommodating at the end of the excursion and helped him find it. They were all very friendly and would definitely recommend even if you haven't ziplined before; this was our first time.
