Had a great afternoon visiting this attraction, fabulous guide kept us entertained and explained how rafts made, transportation of rafts, wild life around area and things of interest. Iwish we had been aware that on the river there was also a few stalls run by locals you could buy beer and cold drinks from, also holiday sovereigns, we purchased everything... More

It was such a relaxing ride along the river the guide was very chatty ,we were on the river for about 1 3/4 hours so very peaceful ,even if you can not swim it is worth going as our guide told us he could swim and had never fell in ,well worth the money

We got married in Jamaica and seen this an ideal tour after our big day and we were not disappointed! Upon arrival at the river it does seem to take a while before you are taken to the rafts as you are given a complimentary cherry drink at the bar and I guess given time to look at the shops... More

I had 18 people on this tour. I made arrangements with Martha Brae directly. The rate was 50% less than what the hotel tour company charged and they arranged pick up for us! Service beyond measure! The water was not as clear due to excessive rain running down the mountains and into the river.. HOWEVER, I wanted to make sure... More

The trip down Martha Brae river was spectacular and I would recommend everyone take this ride. It was dry and safe even for older people.

We had an incredible tour on the Martha Brae while we were vacationing in Jamaica. Gregory was our boat captain and he made the experience exceed our expectations.First thing in the morning at 8 AM is the best time and the most peaceful part of the cruise down the river.

After the climb up the waterfall at Dunn,s river this was a great way of relaxing even the wife had a go at propelling the raft we weren't bothered by mosquitoes but I would take a spray just in case. This is a great way of safely destressing and learning something about the make up of the rain forests and... More

Our guides name was Romain and our friends guide name was Dancer. They were both very entertaining and funny, as well as very knowledgeable of the grounds. By the way it is beautiful land, Stunning views. We did the tubing and it was slow paced and relaxing. They also offer canoeing and biking. I definitely recommend this excursion!

Rafting on the Martha Brae has been in operation for over 40 years. It is a more intimate journey than the Original attraction on the Rio Grande - see my review for details. The Martha Brae is much closer to the major tourist destinations and the weather is less rainy. Visit the attraction if possible only on days then no... More
