Roatan Zip and Eco Walk
After meeting your driver at the pier, you will make your way to the west end of the island, approximately a 30 minute drive, where your exciting, dual cable zipline experience awaits. Lockers are available for your beach bag ($1 US per locker. Lockers can hold more than 1 bag) during this exciting Roatan excursion.
After suiting up, your professional instructor will take you through zipline instruction and safety to make sure everyone is at ease before starting the adventure. Afraid of heights? Never zipped before? This is not a problem. They will walk you through every step of the way until you are zipping on your own on this Roatan excursion.
Then it's time to zip. On a course set out over more than 25 acres of lush Roatan scenery, you will zip just under 2 miles of cable between numerous platforms. Ziplines range from a short 40 feet (it will surprise you) to more than 1250 feet at heights from 20 to more than 40 feet from the ground. Depending on the number in your group, your zip time will last between 50 to 70 minutes. New or experienced, young or old, by the end, you will be wanting more. Local staff will be on hand to take pictures for those wanting to purchase "proof" they actually did it.
What goes down, must go back up. Setting out with your guide, you will set out on a walk through the raw jungle habitat back to your starting point. Walking over paved paths, wooden steps and suspension bridges while keeping an eye out for tropical flowers, "Tarzan" vines, birds, lizards, Iguanas, fruit and nut trees and amazing views.
The suspension bridges have a width of 4 feet and a capacity for 10 people. They vary in length from 150 feet to 200 feet, making them the longest and strongest bridges in the Western Caribbean. They range in height from 20 to 85 feet above the ground below. The walking portion of the tour lasts about 50 minutes and covers approximately one mile in distance, uphill.
Upon reaching the top, you will meet your driver for the transfer back to the cruise pier.

We were picked up just a short walk from the pier and driven to our zipline adventure. Our guides on the zipline (Andy & Carlos) were fantastic! Knowledgeable and friendly plus comforting to the one in our group who was hesitant. They eased her fears and we all had a thrilling adventure zipping through the jungle.
Feb 20. 2019 We did the zip part which was really great. We had to skip the Eco walk portion of the tour due to road construction delays. They let the traffic go in one direction for about 45 min and then they hold it and let the traffic go in the other direction for that long. We finished our entire tour and another bus from our ship was still stuck in traffic for over 2.5 hours trying to get to their excursion. You need to be aware so you don't miss your return to the ship. The zip lining was great though. There were lockers to put your stuff.

The staff was wonderful and treated everyone as if they had all the time in the world, which of course they did not but there was no rush to get through the course. But be prepared for an all day trip. The only con if I had to give one was getting back to the ship, once the excursion was completed we had to wait on another group that was on a different excision because that was the only bus back to the ship but would definitely recommend the excursion.

We were on our 25th anniversary cruise with over 40 people. More than half of them did this. Every single one LOVED it. From the youngest 7 year old to the oldest 60 year old. All had a wonderful time. The guides were great with every one, even the ones who got a little nervous. Of course holding the monkeys at the end was a big hit too. Highly recommend this. Great family excursion.

The first time I ziplined and it was wonderful. The guides were great, experienced, helpful and fun. The location was good, busy but very well organized. Beautiful scenery. Didn't take the nature walk because most people went back to ship.
