Fly Through the Trees on St. ThomasAugust 27, 2013
Imagine soaring safely, swiftly, through the rainforest, catching spectacular birds-eye views of Magen’s Bay, Tortola, Jost van Dyck, and beyond. It’s an exhilarating experience that awaits you on St. Thomas, atop St. Peter Mountain.
Tree Limin’ Extreme offers exciting zipline canopy tours, ranging from 2.5 and 3.5 hours. No previous ziplining experience is required. Your friendly guides will outfit you comfortably and expertly with a harness and helmet, and, regardless of your abilities, you’ll likely feel safe and confident even before the end of their brief safety demonstration. Just make sure you wear close-toed shoes: you don’t want bristly treetops scraping your feet as you fly over them!
A jeep ride takes you to the top of St. Peter Mountain, where six different ziplines await you. Each subsequent zipline takes you farther down the mountain, each line moving you faster than the one before it. Don’t forget to bring a small camera, to capture the gorgeous views from the course’s eight aerial platforms and two rope bridges. You might also consider renting a GoPro video helmet, which lets you document your zipline adventure hands free.
The zipline course was designed for maximum safety, with certification from the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), which oversees standards for high ropes courses, zip lines, challenge courses, climbing walls and aerial adventure parks. Tree Limin’ Extreme zipline participants must be at least eight years old, weigh between 70 and 275 pounds, be less than six feet six inches tall, be in good general health, and wear closed toed shoes.
Free storage is available for your belongings as you zipline.
