Type of activity

Zip Line style tour


The tour takes place at the top of Johnsons Ghut high in the hills with spectacular views overlooking the south coast and Road Town Harbour, a virtual "Shangri-La" of lush vegetation, tropical birds and flowers and the newest attraction - the Original Virgin Canopy Tour. Similar to a "zipline" but much safer and quieter, it will provide you with all the thrills and adrenaline you are looking for but is also fun for all members of the family.

This is a tour that truly defies description, where you will have breathtaking views of Tortola and the surrounding islands and on a clear day you can see as far away as St Croix. Once you have filled out the corresponding paperwork our friendly staff will outfit you with your canopy tour gear. Following a brief orientation and safety talk on how to use the equipment you will arrive at the take-off point of the tour. From here you will enjoy spectacular views of the islands while sailing through and over the rainforest canopy. The tour has been expertly designed for adventurers of all ages (from 5 to 95) and every stop along the way provides you with an amazing "I Can't Believe I Just Did That" photo opportunity that you will want to share with friends and loved ones. The Original Virgin Canopy Tour, including the outfitting and safety talk and the 7 traverse and other challenge components will take approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

The tour, part of The Original Canopy Tour organization, was designed by world renowned designer Darren Hreniuk, who pioneered the first canopy tour ziplines in Costa Rica in the 1990's and has since invented many unique products that help makes this tour safe and enjoyable. This is an absolute “must do” experience even if you have already done ziplining before. The designers' US patented SYPLINE© safety system is much safer and quieter than outmoded "WIRE" zipline systems. Following the tour you can enjoy some refreshments or snacks (not included in the price) or just relax and take in the million dollar view from the patio.
