Your Ocho Rios Zip line and Dunn's River Falls adventure begins directly from the Ocho Rios cruise ship pier or Ocho Rios/Runaway Bay resort. Journey into the hills passing through villages, lush vegetation, and locals doing there normal chores.
We now arrive at H’Evans Scent, located over 2000 ft. above sea level with incredible coastline views. H’Evans Scent Jamaica was the first to introduce Zip Lines to the Island and they have stayed ahead of the competition due to there unique offerings.
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 seasonal fruits, served in a calabash cup. Each ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed you will receive safety instructions before moving on.
Leap of Faith
Persons are 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 will take you off the line and then it is a short walk up hill to the second Zip line.
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.
The Screamer (Swing ride)
The garden swing ride will definitely leave you screaming uncontrollably. The seat 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 that releases the seat holding all the riders, they then swing 180 degrees through the air until the swing comes to a stop.
Awesome Zip Line
The “Awesome Zip line” runs 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 passing goats and cows leads you to the last and fastest zip.
Climb a staircase to about 10ft off the ground. After a safety check, push off holding your legs up as you skim close to the ground, picking up speed as you zip across the scenic valley back to where you left a few moments ago. From here, it’s a short walk through the fields past local produce being grown and folks doing their daily washing and cooking outdoors. Your Ocho Rios Zip Line excursion now comes to an end.
Dunn's River Falls is next; a refreshing spot where generations of visitors have been thrilled by the guided 600 ft. climb up the falls.
Your driver will now take you back to your hotel or close to the Ocho Rios pier for a bit of duty free shopping or Margarita Ville (optional), where Jimmy Buffett's "Parrothead" fans love to relax, listening to his beloved songs, while enjoying a water slide, private beach, rooftop whirlpool, regular pool, and of course, a swim-up bar for a variety of beverages. Margaritaville is an easy walk to your ship!
