4 years is our minimum age allowed. Anyone lighter than 70lbs (30kg) may be escorted by a guide during the tour and maximum weight allowed is 300lbs (135kg). Participants should be able to hike short distances (less than 0.25 miles or 400 meters) and should be in reasonable physical shape. An adult must accompany children under 16 years of age. We cannot allow pregnant women to zipline. We reserve the right to deny any individual access to the tour in order to uphold our safety standards. If you have any doubts, feel free to contact us before making your reservation.
2. How to Dress, What to Bring and What to Leave?
Wear comfortable sports clothing appropriate for humid or wet conditions. Avoid loose clothing that could tangle in ropes or other gear. Skirts should be avoided. The Zipline Canopy Tour runs rain or shine so come prepared with rain gear and shoes that have good traction and do well in muddy conditions. Sandals or flip-flops are highly discouraged. We offer shoe rental in the event you do not have appropriate shoes for the tour. You should remove any dangling jewelry and tie long hair back. Our advice is to remove all items from your pockets before going on the tour.
You will have a chance to store any items that cannot be clipped to your harness during the tour before departing to the Jungle Canopy. Anything you bring on the tour itself must not be an entanglement hazard or have the potential to drop during the tour. We will provide a secure and locked storage area. We are however, not responsible for the theft, misplacement, or loss of any items.
3. How About Cameras?
You can bring your camera on tour, however, it will be very difficult to use during the tour because you will be wearing gloves. The tour is also very "hands on" and you will only be permitted to use your camera while standing on the platforms. It is essential that your camera is secured to your body while zipping, rappelling or on any other element of the tour that requires your undivided attention. We sell mini carabiners for this purpose. If you choose to bring a camera please know it is at your own risk and there is a possibility that it will be damaged.
A photographer is available and will accompany us on the trip. Photos are made available to view and to buy afterwards. An HD helmet-mounted camera is also available for rent.
4. What About the Weather?
Rain actually brings out many Red Frogs and other animal life not normally seen. Weather conditions that cause us to cancel tours are excessive rain, wind, and/or lightning. In any case, you should show up for your tour. We may cancel a tour minutes before it begins or anytime during a tour due to the varying weather patterns here. In the event of cancellation before a tour, we will try to get you on another tour or will offer a full refund. We will offer a re-schedule or partial refund upon our discretion if the tour is cancelled anytime during the tour.
5. Can I Go if I Have Medical Conditions?
It is initially your responsibility to determine whether or not you're capable or fit to participate. Bastimentos Sky reserves the right to exclude any guest from participation for medical, safety or other reasons. The canopy tour is designed for participants young and old of average mobility and strength who are in reasonably good health.
Obesity, high blood pressure, cardiac and coronary artery disease, pulmonary problems, pregnancy, arthritis, tendonitis or other joint and musculoskeletal problems may impair the safety and well-being of participants on the course; as may other medical, physical, psychological and psychiatric problems. All such conditions may increase the inherent risks of the experience and cause the participant to be a danger to themselves or others. Participants with underlying medical problems that put themselves at greater risk of injury or illness during a canopy tour must carefully consider those risks before choosing to participate. They must fully inform tour staff in writing prior to the beginning of the tour.
