Owner description: Your trip begins from the moment you arrive into the Port of Ocho Rios or Falmouth; you will be picked up by our well informed driver for a spectacular ride up to H’Evans Scent . On route the Caribbean Sea is so close you feel that you could touch it. And so you begin a leisure drive up hill. The drive takes you through sleepy villages past kids going to school to locals doing their washing H’Evans Scent is located 2000ft up with a view across the green fields of St Ann, our garden parish.Upon arrival at H’Evans Scent Bamboo gates you will be met by our friendly staff who will give you your first real taste of Jamaica, a natural fruit drink made from fruits that are in season, served in a calabash cup. H’Evans Scent was the first to introduce Zip Lines to the Island of Jamaica and they have stayed ahead of the competition by installing rides which are different to what others are offering. Each ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed your safety instructions comes next then it is onto the first Zip Line.

“Love the staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We booked our trip through Jamaica Tours - and I am so happy we went with this package rather than the Mystic Mountain zip lining. We did this and the Dunn River Falls tour in the same outing. H'evan Sent is a littler farther away from where we stayed in Ocho Rios, but it really allowed for us to see REAL Jamaica - rather than just the Jamaica you see at a resort or a touristy area. You have to ride through the hills and thin roads where the locals live, which was half the fun of the excursion.

It will definitely push your comfort limits - but it is worth it. The big swing is AMAZING, and the views are even better.

We REALLY enjoyed the staff. The owner, Derrick Evans, greeted us and explained some of the history of the place while we were waiting for the rest of the group. Everything there, the tables, buildings, etc - are made from the trees that fall naturally from storms. They don't destroy the ecosystem there for the sake of tourism, which I really appreciated. The staff members have worked there for years together, and they are very fun and friendly.

“Awesome Experience for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Took wife and 2 daughters ages 15 and 10. The owner and workers could not have been nicer and the ziplines were awesome. Screamer lives up to its name. It is an interesting ride up there but well worth the time. I would go again and suggest to everyone to do this excursion.

“A rush!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time zip lining (my boyfriend & I). We were staying at a resort about a half hour away & didn't know where we were going driving all the way up into the mountains on a narrow road! But we finally made it & Orlando explained everything to us. The other guides were great too, they even gave my boyfriend this leaf to smell (not sure what it was called) but to help with the hangover nausea he had haha. The zip lines were so much fun & I always felt safe & secure! Nobody on the resort had really heard of this place which was great for us because we went early in the morning & literally had the place I ourselves! They said it gets busier in the afternoon when cruise ships dock. But it was an amazing experience! Orlando even showed us "Shy Lady's" which were these little blades of the grass that when you brush your finger on them they close up! It was so cool!

“Best Excursion in Jamaica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This was by far our FAVORITE part of our cruise. All the employees were awesome and very helpful. I felt safe 100% of the time. By the end of the excursion, we were sad to leave them. I will recommend this place to everyone I know going to Ocho Rios. I can't wait to go back! Orlando, the main guide explained everything so well and thoroughly. Awesome people. Awesome place!

“Screamer's Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went with a group of 12 as an excursion from our Carnival Victory cruise. Great time! The owner gave a very nice welcome brief and his staff was fantastic at each point of the course. Especially like the 2nd line where you get to actually run off a cliff to propel yourself down the line. The 3-person swing was also a blast! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone making Ocho Rios a stop on their Jamaican trip.
