Kevin's Activity Tips:

The Umauma Experience is the name of this magical place and the overall description of all the events that there are to do here on this amazing waterfall property. We've offered the Umauma Zipline to our clients for years, and they have recently added ATV's to their fun lineup of events. This is a great way to explore this ranch, with wide open vistas, tropical gardens, and a canyon loaded with waterfalls that are just jaw dropping. If you don't do the zipline, this is the SECOND best way to see the sights of Umauma.

The ATV's available here come in three sizes … single ATV's for riders 16 and older with a valid driver's license, 2 seat Side-by-Sides that allow you to switch drivers during the tour, and 4 seat UTV's that also allow for changing drivers. The larger vehicles have a minimum age to drive of 21 (18 with parent's consent who is also along on the tour.)

When making reservations we need to know the names of the single drivers, and who will be the initial driver and the names of passengers on each of the other vehicles. The reservation form will prompt you for all the information we need.
