    Island Zipline Adventure

    Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas

    Duration 1 hr

    The Island Zipline Adventure course is a combination of the Osprey Zipline plus the Seahawk Zip to give you six high-flying zips plus a series of V-net bridges, chimney climbs and cargo nets, designed to challenge but not overwhelm your physical and mental strength. Tour starts with an elevator ride to the top of the Flighthouse.


    With platforms at 120-feet above ground and top speed of over 50 mph, your senses will be dazed with adrenaline as you zip out over the beach and reef of Great Stirrup Cay. The V nets allow you to transverse from one zipline to another while providing you with bird’s-eye view of your fellow guests, the many islands to the South or the turquoise waters and their inhabitants below.


    For those feeling extra strong and confident we’ve added an almost vertical cargo net climb or by-pass the cargo net and continue the course via the chimney climb and V net bridges.


    Either way this zipline course is great for individuals, families or just a bunch of friends who want to get together to experience some adventurous fun. Tour space is limited, secure your adventure today.

You may begin by strolling through the jungle canopy, much of it along suspension bridges and wooden boardwalks. From this vantage point high above the jungle floor, you can expect to see splashes of colorful flowers clinging to vine-draped trees, chirping tropical birds flitting through the air, and creatures such as iguanas and lizards perched on the branches.


    A more adrenaline-pumping adventure awaits you on the zip line, which involves sitting in a harness and darting through the treetops from platform to platform. It will be absolutely exhilarating as you pass over trees and through pathways cut out of the dense foliage at heart-pounding speeds. You will be treated to a literal bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous tropical landscape below so don’t blink because it will go by fast.

    Marine Park Glass Bottom Boat

    Kralendijk, Bonaire

    Duration 1 1/2 hrs

    View the bountiful sea life in Bonaire Marine Park from the comfort of a glass-bottom boat, one of the easiest ways to glimpse the wonders below the water’s surface without the need to get wet!


    Depart from the pier and from the comfort of a 32-foot glass-bottom boat, you will enjoy a spectacular look at the underwater wonders in Bonaire National Marine Park. Just settle into a shaded seat and look through the window that runs down the center of the vessel.


    The waters here are teeming with marine life because the park was one of the first in the Caribbean to ban activities that damage the environment. In the 1960s, legislation was enacted to protect sea turtle eggs and nests. In the 1970s, spearfishing was banned, and it became illegal to remove coral. As a result, Bonaire Marine Park contains spectacular coral reefs that support a huge diversity of fish and other marine species.


    Your window into the wonders below will offer a view that continuously changes, as the boat slowly motors over one spectacular reef after another. While there is no telling what will what come into view, you can expect to see stands of elkhorn and staghorn coral, graceful sea turtles, and a dazzling spectrum of colorful fish that may include grunts, wrasses, goatfish, parrotfish and tangs. If you’re not sure of the exact marine species, just ask the naturalist onboard or refer to the fish identification chart on board.


    After spending approximately 75-minutes navigating the amazing waters of the marine park, you’ll return to the pier.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes a very limited amount of walking. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light-weight, comfortable clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended. There is no restroom facility on the boat.

    Twice as Nice Catamaran Sail & Snorkel

    St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

    Duration 3 1/2 hrs

    Snorkel two reefs that are teeming with marine life and see the wreck of a freighter that has become an artificial reef. A sleek catamaran will bring you to the snorkeling sites, which are both located just off Buck Island, a naturally beautiful oasis that is a national wildlife refuge. Turtle Cove is known for its abundant sea turtles, the most common being green and hawksbill turtles. It’s easy to differentiate between the species, as green sea turtles weigh as much as 500 pounds and are typically twice the size of hawksbills. Countless tropical fish inhabit Turtle Cove and Shipwreck Cove, the second snorkeling venue, which is named for the ship that was scuttled there in 1979. A few years later, Hurricane Hugo broke the ship into three pieces and pushed it into shallower water. While snorkeling in the coves, you can expect to see snapper, blue tangs and parrotfish of every imaginable neon color.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Double your chances of seeing marine life by snorkeling two reefs off Buck Island.
    • Look for sea turtles and brightly colored tropical fish, which are abundant in both locales.
    • See a shipwreck that lies just 25 feet below the surface of the water.
    • Enjoy an open bar and Caribbean music on the return cruise.


    Need to Know:

    Note: Participants must be at least 5 years of age and a maximum weight 260 lbs. Guests must be in good physical condition due to swimming and snorkeling in open waters. Bring a towel, cover-up or t-shirt, camera, non-oil sunscreen and cash to purchase t-shirts if desired. Guests who go ashore do so with the understanding that they will be mixing with members of the general public.
