Canopy Zip Line Tour And Tabyana Beach Is One Of Our Favorite Cruise Excursions

One of our favorite Carnival excursions is the zip line canopy tour followed by Tabyana beach at the Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan port. Upon arriving in Roatan it does look a little third world, but it is a very safe port with some of the best Carnival excursions.

We booked this tour directly from the ship and the cost was less than one hundred dollars per person. We definately got what we paid for with this excursion.

After arriving at the pier you will take an air conditioned van ride through the country side. It will take about forty five minutes to arrive at the first platform. The instructors will then give a very thorough safety lesson and instructions on how to use the zip lines. You also must sign a waiver before the first zip line. It should be noted that the maximum weight is 200 pounds for women and 225 pounds for men and this is strictly enforced. The maximum age limit is 55. My wife was very nervous, but once she saw there were two ropes and two cables to support her she was ready to go.

Each platform was 18 to 30 feet above the ground with seven traverses, ranging from 120 feet to 600 feet apart. The scenery was simply breathtaking along with the ride. At no time did we feel unsafe. If you get nervous a guide will take you all the way down and never leave you. I actually strapped my flip camera to my belt the whole way down to capture the memory. My wife enjoyed it so much she wanted to go again, but it was time to hit the beach.

The last platform ends at the beach. Just when we thought this tour could not get any better it did. The beach is simply beautiful. The water was crystal clear and the sand was pristine. There are some nice little shops at the beach as well as lots of chairs at no extra charge, a fairly nice place to eat and snorkeling gear for rent. I had a shrimp with vegetables kabod along with beans and rice for lunch. It was very good. The snorkeling was average, but the atmosphere at the beach was more than enough. They also had a very good band playing all day.

I would have to say this was one of our favorite Carnival excursions we have ever done out of eleven cruises and over thirty five tours.

I would love to go on a zip line. There is one in Durango, Co. But I haven't gone to it yet. Maybe this summer.

Sounds great. We are going to Mahogany Bay in April on a Carnival ship. I can't wait - sounds like a lot of fun.
