Zip Line Canopy Tour Safety

The guides and equipment used in the Zip Line Canopy Tour will ensure your saftey

Before commencing the journey, Boquete Tree Trek's experienced guides will instruct you in the rules of safety including the behavior that is required to ensure that you and your fellow riders will live the experience to the fullest. You'll then be directed to a take off platform from where you'll begin a controlled flight to the next platform.

Children ýounger than 6 years of age can participate only when accompanied by a parent or guardian. For safety, we recommend maximum weight of 250 pound for gentleman (113.4 kg) and 170 pounds for ladies (77.2 kg), not because the system would not be able to handle it but because the inertia that heavy gliders could gain would make it more difficult for them to brake at the end of each zipline and they could crash against the tree (which is padded but participants could still get hurt).
