When your cruise ship docks in St Lucia, spend your time in port exploring the island's rainforest via aerial tram and zipline. During this 4.5-hour shore excursion, enjoy a guided nature tour that allows a bird's eye view of the lush tropical forest. Then clip into a harness to zoom through a 10-zipline canopy tour and enjoy a hike through the rainforest.
When your ship docks in Castries, make your way to the park located in Chassin, St. Lucia, approximately 4.6 miles (7.4km) from the cruise ship port.
Board the aerial tram, a safe open-air gondola, and take your seat. Meet your professional naturalist guide, who will answer your questions, provide entertaining anecdotes and help identify the plants and wildlife.
As the 8-person tram moves quietly through the forest, enjoy the sounds of the jungle and look for colorful flowers blooming in the gigantic trees. Watch out for the native endangered parrot, the Jacquot, and agouti (a small animal related to the guinea pig) rustling around in the tropical underbrush.
Be sure to bring your camera for spectacular photos of the forest from a bird's eye view.
At the top of the mountain, exit the tram and enjoy a short guided hike through the forest. Admire the tropical plant life, towering trees and the buttress roots up close.
At first zipline platform, don a helmet and harness, then clip in to fly through the trees. Ride the course's ten ziplines between the forest platforms, enjoying breathtaking views as you go. Your guide will accompany you to ensure your comfort and safety.
After your 4.5-hour tour exploring the park by aerial tram and zipline, return to the cruise port.

The tour was fantastic! The only issue was the lack of transportation to the location of the tour. The taxi services at the cruise terminal wanted $120 for four of us to get to the tour (about 10-15 minutes from he terminal). It would have been cheaper to have booked through the cruise company!
Very well worth the money, the tram, the hike and the zip lines were all wonderful. Tour guide did not follow all the safety protocols which caused me some concern.
We had a great time on zip line. It was a highlight of our trip.
The Zipline and Aerial Tram was a great experience, however, had i had known that transportation from the ship was not provided I would have not bought the tour. I ended up having to pay the cost of the Zipline adventure just to take a cab to the location. I had to phone many times costing my a fortune in cell phone bills in trying to find out how I was going to get from the ship to the Zipline. This whole experience almost ruined my trip.
