      Epic experience
      The zip lining experience alone was epic, but the real star of the show was the staff. Impeccably safety conscious, friendly, and fun. They are totally dedicated to creating your ideal experience. Highly recommend.

      Just beautiful!
      First time zip-liner and 60 year old woman here. This was a fun, exciting, terrifying trip. It started with a 30 minute bus ride out of the city of Roatan. After gearing up in harnesses, gloves and helmets we were taken to a training line to learn how to brake and land on the platform. We were also given instruction in how to interpret the hand signals the guides could give us while on the cables (slow down, straighten out). There were 11 or 12 platforms with lines in many different lengths, and a guide on every platform. After the first couple lines I was able to take a deep breath and look around (the first ones were just me looking straight ahead holding on for dear life). Once I relaxed a little I was able to enjoy each ride. The views were absolutely stunning in every direction. At no point did I feel unsafe. The guides offered to go with me tandem if necessary. They were very helpful and skilled. I wore a t-shirt and bike shorts. I would not recommend short-shorts or loose-fitting clothing. The harnesses go around your thighs, torso and shoulders and those clothes may make them uncomfortable. Close-toed shoes are required. We started at the top of a mountain range and zipped to the bottom, requiring a ride back up the mountain in an open buggy to get back to our starting point. They did take pictures which were offered for sale, and were selling t-shirts from a small shop. There were little kids in our group, but it is not for anyone with physical disabilities. There are steps up to every platform, no ramps and no handrails anywhere (it's Mexico). This was a fun excursion from a Norwegian cruise ship. Very well organized.

      Wonderful experience!! Highly recommend!
      We loved our experience at South Shore Zipline! The staff provided excellent service! They made sure we were comfortable and communicated well. I myself am a bit afraid of heights but our guides made sure that I was excited and not scared! We highly recommend South Shore to anyone who loves an intense adrenaline rush!! Be sure to include a Zipline experience with them during your trip!

      First time on a zip line. Very easy to do.
      Staff was helpful safety conscious. Spectacular view of the jungle canopy and ocean. Try to avoid times when cruise ships are in, can be very busy. We went in early morning and finished in about an hour

      Wow, were these ziplines fun. Two parents and two kids (8 and 10) had a fantastic time gliding along the canopy in Roatan. Friendly staff and we felt safe the entire time.

      Shore Excursion and Best One Yet
      This Zipline is the ultimate experience that is a must have in Roatan. If you want something exciting with fast ZipLines, high heights and wonderful views then this is the place. Numerous zip lines to ride on and the views are stunning! The crew who work with you on the whole experience make sure safety first and make sure you have a great time. So worth the time and the money to go through South Shore.

      Fantastic experience !
      Loved this experience! Beautiful scenery, helpful , fun staff, exhilarating, informative. From the time we loaded the bus to our return, we enjoyed it all with one “minor “ exception … I hate to even mention it but the that is what this “forum “ is for. Tipping was very confusing. We wanted to be sure to tip well , because like I said previously , we were very pleased overall. But, jeeperz. …. We were told a few times, not just once or twice , that each staff had to be tipped individually ? Bus drivers , 6 zip line staff, eco walk narrator , bus narrator,…. Etc. we were not prepared for all that and not even sure if it’s true. Seems like there has got to be a better way ? Everything else …. Top notch. You won’t be sorry you went on this adventure : )

      South Shore Zipline
      We booked this through our cruise as their Adrenaline Zip Line Adventure. It was an 11 line zipline experience, including transportation to/from the cruise port. It was simply great. I've been on a number of other zip lines, and this one was one of the best. They like to joke around quite a bit, but they are very serious when it comes to safety, from when you are fitted with the harness, to the experience on the lines. We had 7 staff accompany our group of roughly 18, and they were able to safely help some of the guests by riding tandem with them. I'd go back again

      Soaring above the jungle.
      What a great time. Jeffrey and his team were so much fun. It went by too quickly. Nothing like zip lining above the jungle with the ocean right in the background. This was by far the safest and most in control zip lines of the dozen I have ever done.

      Adreline filled zip line tour
      Love this experience. Was scared initially of doing it but enjoyed this zip line tour. The best was the No 9 zip line the longest and fastest. Will definitely recommend to everyone. My whole family did it and enjoyed the experience. Awesome people and experienced guides.

    We have been to this location twice now. The first time we did just the “basic” zip lining but this time we did the combo of the Superman zip line and the standard zip lines. The guides were great but by far Marlin was great and made this a great day.

    I would STRONGLY recommend this adventure. I went on the adventure with 5 of my Very good friends. Three are young and healthy while 1 is 69 and I am 66 and getting a hip replacement soon. We all had a blast. Us 2 old bags rode tandem to assure we could stop but the others are solo. I always felt extremely safe and equipment is very well maintained. The staff went above and beyond to assure we all ha a good time. There is 11 lines and yes there is stairs but all had railings to help. The views were absolutely gorgeous and the crew were a lot of fun. Don’t miss this outing!

    WOW!!! Perfect for someone who loves adventure but not quite ready to jump out of an airplane! I felt perfectly safe with experienced tour guides. Something no one tells you is to bring plenty of smaller bills. There are about 8-10 guys to tip and they deserve it! Also there are photographers, bus drivers, and guides on the buses. So much fun!!!

    Hello Christy, Thank you for the wonderful review. We work very hard to provide safe and fun zip-lining experiences, there are many aspects of the tour such as driving to our facility and our drivers and tour guides definitely deserve a small gratuity for the service they provide. Thanks again.

    It was my first time Zip-lining. This was a ton of fun and well worth the price. No shady ladders to climb. The bus picked us up from our villa and dropped us off at the villa when we were done. It was a smooth walk to each zip line. The bus was waiting at the bottom to carry us back up to the staging area. The guides made everything very simple and therefore very safe.
    I highly recommend this activity.

    Retired couples went zip lining, eco walk, and west bay beach. We were on NCL cruise and had 9 hours ashore. South Shore transported us to and from all locations, great job Alvin. Smooth transition all the way and returned to ship in plenty of time. We zipped with Capt Jack Sparrow and Kevin Hart, a most excellent experience. Then Nora took us on an eco walk where we learned much about the ecology of the area. A short drive to West Bay to Paradise Resort for some time in the ocean and snorkeling. Regrettably our time was short for the ocean part of the tour. If we had to do it again, we likely would have skipped the eco walk to spend more time with snorkeling. Cie la vie, you live and learn. We had a great time and it was well worth the money. Thank you South Shore Adventures.

    Everything about this tour was amazing!! The views are beautiful. The safety equipment and briefing put you at ease (even for someone who has issues with heights, like myself). All of the guides were helpful, friendly, encouraging and funny. The photos they took were great quality. What *really* made this tour for me though was the dedication and kindness our main guides Harry and Naun showed my brother. They were made aware of his apprehension and developmental challenges and nothing more needed to be said or explained. They immediately took charge, stuck with him on every single line and made it a thoroughly enjoyable time for everyone. So much so that he even continued on and finished the last two optional lines!! Harry and Naun, you are amazing, thank you so much!!!!

    Very helpful employees and our children (8 and 11 years) were able to participate with tandem help and solo ziplining. It was lightly raining when we went but still very fun. It’s possible I got the activity name wrong but it included 11 ziplines and was close to 2 miles in length I think.

    Amazing experience at South Shore Ziplines. Our guides Cedrick and Terrell were both great guys who made the experience so much fun. The zip lines themselves are great. They are big and have amazing views. The whole place is very well run. They even had a photographer taking pictures for us and then emailing us each picture later that day. If you are looking for some adventure, i strongly recommend this company.

    Traveling with my wife and 2 boys (ages 7 & 10) Roatan was one of the ports on our cruise. I booked this excursion through Tripadvisor, because it was half the cost of what the cruise ship was charging, and we couldn't have been happier.

    You start by taking about a 30-45 minute van ride from the port to the zip line starting area. It took that long because the road is awful, crater sized pot holes everywhere, so the driver was going slow. Once there you have the option of paying $2 for a locker to keep your belongings, use the rest rooms, get a cold drink or snack before getting started. They don't give you a lot of time because there's a lot of other people and they want to keep things moving. From there you get geared up, get an overview about safety and how everything works, and away you go zip-lining through the jungle from one set of trees to another. Some lines were longer than others, some faster, in total went on about 8-10 different one but each one was super exciting and fun. My kids loved it....highlight of the trip. At each stop there were other guides to assist with getting off one line and onto another. We always felt very safe and in good hands with our guide Tony, who followed us the whole way down. The zip lining itself took about 1 1/2 hours, but it all depends on how big your group is and there's plenty of time to take pictures during this adventure

    Once done w/the zip lines, you jump back into the van and take a short ride to the beach area which has a nice bar, restaurant, bathroom and changing rooms, chairs and umbrellas, etc.. It was a nice place although small and pretty crowded. There's lots of people trying to sell you things so just need to ignore them and enjoy yourself. The water itself was crystal clear and super refreshing after the adventure through the trees. We were there for about 2 hours before getting back in the van that took us to our ship in plenty of time before departing. The whole trip took about 4-5 hours and we were all exhausted afterwards before very happy and loved every minute of it

    I would advice bringing plenty of cash with you to tip the zip line guide, the driver and if you want to buy anything at the beach.

    We were worried that this might be a little dangerous or too strenuous. Don’t worry. Follow their instructions and it is a piece of cake. They strap you into the equipment and you get to enjoy a dozen varied zip lines. We were nervous the first few rides but relaxed and enjoyed the last 8-10 rides. Watch out for #9. It is high and long but great...enjoy it.

    You are in good hands. We had s medical emergency in our group midway through the experience. All of the sudden 4 or 5 of the staff emerged from nowhere and handled the problem professionally. One of the girls in our group fainted.

    For the adventurous you can take one of the rides with a staff member and then “freestyle”...ride up side down

    The best part is that they sell a thumbdrive with your pics on it for $15 per couple....about 20 pics

    Fun and well worth it
