Very relaxing tube ride down the river. Two guides were very knowledgeable and funny. If you are looking for a relaxing/easy going excursion, this one is for you.

We had such a great time. They assigned two very knowledgeable guides who assembled our tubes into two groups. We drifted lazily down the river while they explained the history of what we were looking at. We stopped twice during the tour. The stop, they tied our tubes off to the river bank and explained all of the benefits of... More

Great fun! We already rafted down the Martha Brae on this trip. This seemed like a longer ride, but the MB is a prettier color. No vendors on the river banks on this trip but be prepared for your 'driver' to stop and want to give you a limestone foot massage/mud masque. Also the guys see you floating down the... More

Our tour guide, Chris, was most amazing. Part of the appeal of Jamaica is the hospitality of the people. The river is cool and refreshing, Chris knew all about the local plants and animals. He told us some funny stories, he gave us limestone pedicures and we swung from the rope into the river. He stopped and went into a... More

My girlfriends and I booked the tubing excursion because it came in the package with the zip line. We honestly didn't know the type of pampering we were about to receive. The staff was profession and very friendly. Any and everything we wanted was "No Problem Mon". We relaxed while tubing down this amazing river and enjoyed the scenery. Our... More

We went on a tubing ride during our recent trip to Montego Bay. It was part of a ziplining package and didn't think much of what the experience would be like prior to arriving. We were in for a very private tour of just us 4 (my boyfriend and I and our friends). It was a much smaller experience than... More

On our recent visit to the idyllic island of Jamaica (our 4th time back), we booked a day trip for bamboo rafting and later, a visit to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary to feed hummingbirds by hand. I highly recommend both tours, which are quite close in proximity to each other. I have posted a separate review under Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, which... More

The level of activity was just right for my sister and I. The biggest part of the adventure was the ride up in the bus and it was a one lane road with a lot of switchbacks. We were allowed to leave our dry clothes and other items on the bus. The souvenir shop also had clean bathrooms and you... More
