I have done many ziplines and this course with 11 ziplines is one of the best. It is perfect for families with children of all ages. It is at Mahogany Bay cruise terminal, literally a 5 minute walk from where all the carnival ships dock. If you are cruising on other cruise lines it is a brief ride from Roatan's other cruise terminal. Like all ziplines, it does require climbing a lot of steps and being in reasonably good shape. The weight limit is 250 pounds but I did not see them turn away younger children as many ziplines do. I would say any 4 or over that are not afraid of heights and zipping through tree tops woulld probably do fine. Usually it was the adults that turn and ran. Seriously, there were people of all shapes and sizes and all ages. The only caution I would give you is that most zipline have a stool you can stand on to clip and unclip from the zipline. This one does not. So you have to be able to pull yourself up high enough for the employees to connect your harness at each station. The employees help but you still have to lift most of your own weight. In addition, there is only one employee at each station who has to catch the incoming zipliners, unhook them and hook them on the next zipline. As a result, there are frequently delays, especial with the large crowds that exist when two ships dock. It is very hot and muggy in the summer so expect to sweat a lot, but the views are magnificent and the ride is thrilling. Note for cruise ship passengers, I have cruised a lot and almost always book shore excursions with the cruise line. This is the vendor that Carnival uses, but I booked this one directly with Clip N Zip because of it's proximity to the cruise terminal, the exceptional long time Carnival spends at this port and the simple fact that the price is $19 per person cheaper if you book it online. Also you are not restricted to a specfic time and a large group. You can walk across at your convenience, pay at the window when you get there and be zipping in 15 minutes, but do make a reservation online before you go or they will not give you the discount.

Before going on the Carnival Glory in April 2012, we did some research. Trying to make it fun for ourselves as well as the kids. I came upon the Clip "N" Zip review from another family, so looked into in more. This is not an excursion the cruise ship offered, so we were taking a gamble doing it on our own. It was well worth it!!! Upon arriving to Roaton, we departed the ship and started on our journey. No joke the walk was 5 minutes from where we docked. No cost for transportation and/or extra costs. We walked right up and they started us on our way. Very inexpensive at $40.00 per person. If you do a combo excursion, there are ATV's right next door. You can do both for $80.00 per person. Each tour was about an hour and a half. The gentlemen that led us through were great. Have to give props to Bictor and Chino at Clip "N" Zip. There was 11 runs ranging from 50 feet to 900 feet. Awesome time...one of our favorite by far for us and the kids. Their website is www.clipnziproatan.com

Our party of six, ages 20 - 55, was looking forward to our first ever zip lining experience. We did a lot of online research before selecting Clip N Zip. I highly recommend visiting the company website, as it has great videos and information to help you understand what you are signing up for before you get there.

We arrived in Roatan by Carnival Cruise on Wednesday, 05/23/12. The ship docks within walking distance of the entrance to Clip N Zip. It's less than a 10-minute walk from the dock. We made an online reservation about three weeks ahead of our arrival, but it was not very crowded when we got there. Upon arrival we checked in and paid for our tour in US$ with no problems. We were immediately set up with two guides, Ramon and Burt, who got us securely harnessed with all of our safety gear very quickly and efficiently. After a quick trip up the hillside on the back of a pick up truck, we made the short hike to the first tree-stand.

The guides were very friendly, reassuring and informative during the entire tour. Since this was our first time zip lining, there was a little apprehension and nervousness among our group, but Ramon & Burt did a great job of making sure that we felt safe and comfortable during the whole process. We did a total of about 9 zips.

A photographer takes photos of the participants, which can be purchased at the end of the tour. The CD of photos was reasonable priced and the photos were really great. Make sure to budget some extra cash if you want to take advantage of the photos - highly recommended. Also, make sure to carry some extra cash to tip the guides. I can't emphasize enough what a great experience we had thanks to our guides - we were very happy to tip them for the great job!

Clip N Zip was a great experience and a great value. We will certainly go back next time we are in Roatan, and I would recommend them to everyone I know.

First off, I did make reservations online before our cruise and was given the price of $40 per person...that included the $5 cruise discount but was also told that if we had not made reservations they would be unable to honor that price since they are now somehow associated with Carnival. We had a great experience the whole time. Check in was easy, they had several guides gear us up and everyone was very friendly. Only ran into one guide that could not speak English and he only walked us up the hill. It really worked well to have 4 guides because that allowed us to keep moving instead of waiting for each person to cross and then waiting again. I did not pay attention to the clips used but felt safe. This was my third time zip lining and this is a good course with a variety of zips. Great views included. Easy to reach, just walk across the port area...plenty of time to shop or go to beach afterwards.

Booked with clip 'n' zip prior to my cruise on Carnival Liberty, not sure what to expect. Upon arriving it was very easy to get to, and the staff was friendly, reassuring, and experienced. They did a great job instructing me on what to do and what not to do, and made the experience one that I will remember for a lifetime. Our instructors were Bruce and Mike, and they were incredible! I would recommend clip 'n' zip for the experienced or inexperienced zip-liner.
