Great staff! Very friendly and informative. The zipline was exhilerating!
My teenage son and I had a great time. It was worth it even though it was raining. Our guides - Annie, baby! and Chubby - were wonderful and provided a lot of background information during the van ride to and from Dennery. They would stop occasionally so we could get photos - bread fruit trees, pineapple, a small boa constrictor at the side of the road near a broken coconut, etc. I discovered there is a zipline closer to the Northern resorts, near Castries, but I think going to Dennery was better - we saw a lot of St. Lucian life on the trip, and the zipline system in Dennery is a series of 12 lines, and felt quite professionally done. The only downside is that the winding roads of St. Lucia can make you nauseated if you're prone to car sickness.
Personally I did not rate this particular activity. There are 20 different lines you zip along of different heights and lengths. After the first 7/8 it felt a bit like same old thing again. Also I found it tricky to be looking around at the vegetation and at the same time avoid the tree branches, some of which get quite close as you are zipping along.
Others in our group thought it was fantastic, but personally I did not rate it.
