Canopy tours offer everyone a safe yet exhilarating thrill. But they aren’t wonderful adventures for the thrills alone. Zip line canopy tours are actually relatively environmentally friendly as an outdoor activity. So if you needed another reason to come to Empower Adventures Tampa Bay, here we will discuss some of the ways a canopy tour promotes environmental friendliness.

Little Space Necessary

The first thing that makes a zip line canopy tour an environmentally friendly recreational activity is that it doesn’t require a lot of space. Other recreational areas and activities, such as parks, fields for sporting events, or golf courses require a lot of cleared space. While the canopy tours take you through a significant portion of the 396-acre Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve, we’ve had to clear very little of that space to set up our zip line and towers.

A Great View

Our zip line canopy tours will have you soaring between 25 ft and 65 ft over the ground. From this vantage point, you will be able to see what the Mobbly Bayou has to offer in a way you have never seen it before. Local wildlife are throughout this area, and you will be zipping right alongside them.

We hope that the time you spend observing the Mobbly Bayou helps you appreciate the beauty in natural spaces. After all, imagine a zip line course with no trees! How could we take our guests on canopy tours without a canopy?

Little Footprint

If you are an avid hiker and camper, you may be familiar with campsites left strewn with discarded wrappers or bottles along the hiking trail. Since we encourage our guests to travel lightly on our canopy tours, our grounds remain relatively clean. Also, most of our canopy tours can be completed within a couple hours, so there’s no need for our guests to load up their pockets with snacks that may later end up dirtying the bayou.

Canopy Tours: An Easy Way to Go Green

What’s great about canopy tours at Empower Adventures Tampa Bay is that you don’t have to shell out for expensive products just to do something healthful for the environment. All you have to do is take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
