Thank you so much to our river tubing captain Andrew! He was so easy-going, informative, and entertaining. We had a great time visiting with him, learning about Jamaica, and relaxing on the beautiful jungle river! Would do it again in a heartbeat! Candace and Mike

We had not planned to be in Montego Bay. Our cruise ship was unable to dock in Falmouth due to high wind conditions. The captain sailed to Montego Bay. Our excursions were cancelled so we set forth to make lemonade from the lemons we had. We were on vacation after all. We engaged a somewhat sketchy cab driver who was... More

I went with my family in December and the water was smooth and gorgeous. Depending on what time of year you go I heard the water can be intense and rapid or calm and peaceful. However it's all very safe the tubes are grouped together, so no one gets separated and there is a guide for each group of tubes.... More

I guess I was swayed by the brochure where the people are sailing down the river on rapids; not the case. This is like floating down a lazy river at the hotel and in spots it is so slow the guide has to paddle. I didn't expect Class $ rapids, but I did think it would be a little faster... More

This excursion, offered as an add on to our zip lining adventure, was well worth it! It was so relaxing floating down the river, admiring the scenery, and learning about the Jamaican countryside. Our tour guide was Erik (aka Cool Cat) and he was incredibly laid back yet knowledgeable. He pointed out interesting plants and animals along the tour and... More

Our guide was called Eric and he was such a friendly person. He was full of information and fun. As we made our way down the river, eric pointed things out and took the time getting to know us all. It was a very relaxing tour. We stopped part way and we got had a natural pedicure with limestone. I... More
