Tour duration: 3-4 hours
We have special access to the highly acclaimed Walk the Plank Zip Line of Samana.
Fly 350 feet above the Lulu Waterfalls (wear your swimsuit under your clothes to swim in the falls afterwards) as you WALK THE PLANK off of the Pirate Ship at the top of the mountain. The first run is over 1000 feet long. The first of 12 total lines. (The competition only has 10)
We use only the highest quality equipment on the 3 cable Zip Line system. Rated for up to 26,000 pounds you can enjoy the Zip Line even as a double ride with our instructors if you are nervous. We have not just one but 3 cable to ensure your safety. You are fastened in with a double harness that has two cams that run along 2 of the cables overhead. Our integrated braking system allows you to concentrate on having fun. You don’t have to reach up with your hand and grab the cable to slow yourself down on each of the lines. On zip lines where you have to wear a glove and control the braking, you can have premature braking accidents that leave you suspended in the middle of the zip line or worse, you can brake late and hit the pole at the end. NOT WITH OUR INTEGRATED BRAKE SYSTEM! You just kick back and relax while you enjoy the panorama zipping by below your feet. Or your head, if you want to go upside-down!
-No age limits
-Participants must weight at least 45 lbs.

Wear normal clothes.
Most wear shorts and shoes.
Please don’t wear flip flops.
Some come in their swimsuits.
Definitely wear your swimsuit under your clothes though! The waterfalls is at the end of the last Zip Line run and you won’t be near the truck to get it.
Bring Small bills for Tipping and Shopping
Tipping Opportunities to keep in mind:
There are various Zip Line guides depending on size of the group. You can give the tip to one of them at the end of the tour and they’ll split it up.
There are local kids that will walk along with the various groups on the trail to help anyone who needs a hand. I recommend to people that they bring dollar bills for tipping, IF, you need help in a few spots. The kids are very helpful and kind. Please don’t be upset with them, they are just trying to make a few dollars working with people who come to their backyard to see beautiful sights and they are actually providing a service that some really need. They are not begging for money which you find often in tourist areas.
Also keep in mind that they are in NO WAY affiliated with Tour Samana With Terry.
Pure hands free fun. Be LEGENDARY.
