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

Orlando was our guide, he was very informative about the fauna and ecology. He was attentive and did a great "natural pedicure". We had a wonderful, relaxing time.

I wasn't expecting to have as much fun as I did on this excursion. This was relaxing and our tour guide was excellent. I believe his name was Romaine.

Our tour guide Fedrick was amazing was full of information about Jamaica and the culture. He sang Bob Marley songs almost the entire way. We enjoyed the small little rapids and then the quiet of the river when it slowed down. The private beach was ok but the food was amazing and all of the pictures they took of us... More

Our family had such a great time on this excursion. We floated down the river while our guides entertained us with jokes and stories. Half way we were treated to limestone pedicures! If you're looking for a relaxing peaceful excursion, this is for you!
