The Antigua Canopy Zip Line is an adventurer’s delight with this unique eco-tour through Antigua’s lush rainforest, where you embark on an amazing 15-element journey through the verdant forest, high above the trees.
You will be met at your SeaDream yacht by professional guides and taken by air-conditioned taxi to the Antigua rainforest some 20 minutes away. After being briefed by fully trained and experienced Rangers your exciting adventure begins!
The adventure offers uncompromised safety on a complete double wire throughout with a Double Redundant system. Your state of the art harness and safety helmet are from the world’s leaders in challenge course equipment. All our Rangers have attended and passed the most stringent training programme conducted by the ACCT, world leaders for Challenge Course standards in installation, operation and inspection.
Commencing at the Old Pump House, you walk over a suspension bridge from the side of the building, which spans the gorge to the far bank. Once across the bridge, your remaining 15-element thrilling journey through the forest begins, as you trail to the first aerial zip, and continue onto the others which criss-cross the verdant gorge.
There are zip lines of 52 feet or 15 meters to 328 feet or 100 meters in length. The geography of the gorge dictates that you are above the treetops for large parts of the run – entering a corridor in the foliage at either end. There are a series of 13 zip lines and 2 suspension bridges giving a bird’s eye view of the flora and fauna in the rainforest whilst listening to the numerous bird species.
The gorge is full of interesting plants and fruits and has a definite tropical feel to it. There are also a series of large trees (incl the silk cotton, one of Antigua’s National Symbols), prominent boulders, a rock pool, small waterfall and a shaded area with interesting plants, wild fruits, vines, mosses and lichens.
