ST THOMAS — Prepare for the ultimate zip trip with Tree Limin’ Extreme Zipline Tour! High in the rainforest of St. Peter Mountain is where you will catch breathtaking views of Magen’s Bay, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands, and experience what National Geographic considers to be one of the top 10 island/ocean views in the world.
Tree Limin’ Extreme Zipline Tour opened twelve years ago under the guidance of Julie Eaton-Bryan. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, she moved to St. Thomas in 1991 after falling in love with the white sand beaches, endless sunshine, cultural diversity, and rich opportunities the island provided. After an exhilarating ziplining experience in Costa Rica in 1996, Julie decided that she would open a zipline in St. Thomas one day. In 2011, that dream became reality once she secured an 8-acre tract of land, known today as Tree Limin’ Extreme. This idyllic slice of tropical rainforest sits across from an existing tourist attraction high on St. Peter Mountain, making it the perfect location to build out a zipline course for visitors and locals to enjoy. Marc Bryan, owner and builder of the course, has firm roots in St. Thomas, thanks to his family migrating to the island in the early 1900s. His background in architecture and design led him to construct the beautiful course found at Tree Limin’ Extreme.
This adrenaline-rich excursion includes eight aerial platforms total, six exhilarating ziplines, and two sky bridges that reach up to 35 miles per hour (56 km/h)! As you soar through the island’s Caribbean rainforest, marvel at the spectacular ocean views that extend in the distance. The course is certified through the ACCT (Association of Challenge Course Technology), which means zippers can be confident in the safety of their experience. The final zip experience, called the “Yo- Yo,” is the perfect name because it feels EXACTLY how it sounds; plus, you won’t find another zipline of its kind in the Caribbean. Throughout the tour, their guides offer to guests their knowledge of the Virgin Islands culture, flora, fauna, and folklore.
Tree Limin’ Extreme Zipline Tour is located at 7406 Estate St. Peter, directly across from the St. Peter Mountain Great House. Zippers must weigh between 70 and 275 pounds, be no taller than 6 feet, 6 inches, and be in good general health. Closed-toe shoes are required to participate, and zipping occurs rain or shine.
