Tour Details

Zip Line Adventure Shore Excursion in Falmouth

Your trip begins from the moment you meet your well informed driver/tour guide for a spectacular van ride up to H'Evans Scent Zip Line facility, approximately 40 minutes away. On route, you will first drive along the Caribbean Sea. so close in places you feel that you could touch it. Then you turn inland and follow the narrow road up through lush landscaping, passing though sleepy villages, past kids going to school to locals doing their washing. H'Evans Scent is located 2000ft up with a view across the green fields of St Ann, our garden parish.

Upon arrival, you will be met by the friendly staff who will give you your first real taste of Jamaica, a natural fruit drink made from fruits that are in season, served in a calabash cup. H'Evans Scent was the first to introduce Zip Lines to the Island of Jamaica and they have stayed ahead of the competition by installing rides which are different to what others are offering. Each ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed you will receive safety instructions before the first Zip Line.

To reach the first zip, named the Leap of Faith, each person is required to climb a staircase. Once on the launch platform, the instructor will give you your final briefing and then you are ready to zip 500 ft, across the valley. You are met on the other side by two members of staff, who take you off the line and then it is a short walk up hill to the next zip.

Once clipped to the zip line at ground level, you are required to make a short run to the edge of the platform and jump off, this gives you the momentum to traverse across the valley back to where it all began.

Your next adventure is the Screamer, a swing that will give you the ride of your life. The seat an accommodate up to 3 average sized people. Once you are connected safely to the bar, a cable will automatically pull you back until you are 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 through the air back and forth until the swing comes to a stop.

A walk then takes you to the Awesome Zip. This is located across the the road, and is the longest line on the Island spanning 1200ft across a scenic valley. To reach the launch platform, after you are attached to the safety line, each guest must climb up the staples (metal steps on either side of the pole) to the platform 50ft in the air. (For this zip you must weigh 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 leads you to the last, and fastest zip.

Aptly named Speedy, you will need to climb a staircase to about 10ft off the ground. After a safety check, you push off holding your legs up 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. From here, it is a walk through the fields past local produce being grown, local folks doing their washing and cooking outdoors.

Small lockers, restrooms and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at the zipline site.

Please note: Zip line does not accommodate tandem riders. This Falmouth tour is NOT for guests with a fear of heights.

In an nutshell......it was absolutely thrilling in every way. Thoroughly enjoyed the two (2) zip lines. We elected to forego the remaining two and the swing because the exhilaration of the first two was more than enough for two Senior Citizens over the age of 65. The ride to the zip line was also exciting. Traversing narrow mountain roads was literally breathtaking. Especially when encountering vehicles coming from the opposite direction. Immediately apparent and notable is the absence of guard rails. The zip line personnel were very friendly and very professional. They sent a "test employee" on the zip line first to assure us that it was safe. We are glad we took this excursion and my wife has readily removed this from her "bucket list". A JOB WELL DONE!

We had a blast doing this. The staff was warm and friendly. We were greeted w coconut drinks and then started the course. It was my first time ziplining and they were patient w me and explained what we were doing. The scenery is gorgeous. It was just a really awesome experience overall. I would highly recommend and would do again myself.

We were the only people on the course in the morning and went through the course quickly. Climbing the pole with staples takes some strength and was a bit scary for our 10 year old. The staff was very safety conscious and provided great customer service. We all had a ball!

This was awesome. I went with my 13 year old Son and had a blast. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. The drive to the location was a little long, but it was well worth the time. Would suggest to everyone.

This is hands down the coolest way to spend your excursion from Falmouth. The company was very professional and entertaining, and the experience was unforgettable. If you're scared of heights, you should still do this excursion. The crew is very thorough with safety, and this is a perfect opportunity to conquer your fear for a moment knowing you're in a safe setup. The fear and adrenaline really made this memory with my family powerful... we all conquered our fear of this jungle together! Ate some jerk chicken with a Red Stripe on a dock, and we went back to the boat. I'll never forget this day. Thank you to Trish, Darryl, Punkus, Blip, Nina & the rest of Jamaica!

I do have a fear of heights but did this anyway. The team at the facility were very reassurances as I climbed up the pole. They made me feel very safe. I want to go again.
