Ready to soar like a bird from tree to tree in a rain forest? Come enjoy an amazing shore excursion to the cool hills of Lethe to experience the thrill of the longest zipline in the Caribbean plus a brief Montego Bay Highlights.
Meet your friendly and professional tour guide at the designated meeting point near the Montego Bay cruise ship port where you will board a mini-van/bus. Your tour guide will brief you on the day’s proceedings while educating you on some Jamaican history. As the bus makes its way to Lethe, feel free to participate in the discussion by asking all the questions you have whether it is cultural, religious, political or otherwise.
You will be in awe! As the trip takes you along the northern coast of Jamaica your eyes cannot escape the amazing coastline and ocean with an array of colors and crystal clear water. When the bus reaches the town of Reading, it will make its way up through Longhill's lush, green rain-forest until it reaches approximately 1500 feet. A little way further and you will arrive in the lush, green Lethe Valley where the zipline is located.
When you arrive in Lethe and meet your very experienced zipline guide, you are harnessed, given a brief orientation for the zipline canopy adventure and prepare to board their off-road all-wheel drive truck that will take you around the jungle. Feel free to purchase drinks and snacks while you wait to board the jungle jeep that is waiting to take you to the first of five platforms in the mountains. Some lines are faster than others so be prepared to expel tons of adrenaline as you make your way through the trees. The total time spent on the zipline canopy will be approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.
After the zipline canopy you will be taken to downtown Montego Bay where you will visit historic sites starting at Sam Sharp Square. Next, you will visit the St James Parish Church which was built in 1775 and is still fully functional. From there you will go to the Richmond Hill Great House which was built in 1804 and is situated on top of a hill in the center of town. From the house you get a full panoramic view of the entire city of Montego Bay. If you wish to go inside the Richmond Hill Great House simply purchase the $3 ticket and take the tour.
After the Montego Bay city highlights you will be taken to do souvenir shopping and eat lunch, after which your bus will return you to the Montego Bay cruise ship port.
