Cutie:

I haven't used that company but I did the Carnival zipline tour in April. Your zipline tour sounds MUCH more exciting than Carnival's. Carnival's was the Bobsled and Zipline and was pretty "tame". The bobsled was about the same as a county fair roller coaster and the zipline, while fun, consisted of five short runs and a twenty foot repelling platform that was about the same as when you come down from the rock climbing wall.

Your tour is also $40 less than Carnival's.

Have fun!!!!!

yeah, after seeing friends last year go off in st. kitts for $15 pp all over island tour with the locals, i am all for going out with local tour companies vs. ship tours. so i thought i'd try it this time in a bigger way

never ziplined but sure am looking forward to it!

i think i'm going to book it. the time is perfect for the ship docking and sailing away and it looks like a blast.

Ziplines are FUN!!!! I've done them in Puerto Vallarta, Roatan, Costa Rica and in the states. Haven't done it in Jamaica, though. Dunn's River Falls is my favorite place in Jamaica and I HAVE done that 3 times. Lovin' every minute of it!

I,too, tend to like using local companies rather than ship's tours. I've always had great results using recommendations on the boards for tour operators. Saves $$$ so I can do more of them.
