Zip & Dip Tour Details

Double up on an incredible and memorable adventure with the best of both Umauma Falls worlds. Begin by zipping through the air with a 9-line Zipline Tour, followed by an hour-long play in the falls —swimming, kayaking and jumping down the falls into the frothy 70-foot deep pool or cool, clear water.
