This is a great way to spend a couple of hours relaxing in Jamaica. Ask for Peter as your guide. He is the best!

Willy our tour guide deserves a special mention. He sang all the way down the river, making the ride even more relaxing than it would have been if it had just been silent. Please make sure you take money with you because the pots they make are so beautiful you will definitely want to take one home as a souvenir!!

Martha Brae rafting was relaxing and Beautiful. The calm float down the river really highlights the natural beauty of Jamaica. Relaxing day trip perfect for couples. Our raft guide, Skinner, was very nice. I highly recommend him!

Beautiful scenery and nice tour on the raft - we seemed to get quite a grumpy tour guide though compared to the other rafts we could hear as we overtook!!!

We did the river raft tour and absolutely loved it. You have a man that uses a pole and moves you along the river while you are seated on a cushioned seat for two. There are also craftsmen along the way where you can stop and look at their wooden crafts to possibly purchase (only if you desire -- they... More

The raft trip itself takes about an hour and a half. It is very relaxing and passes through beautiful rain forest. From the Iberostar Rosehall where we were staying the bus ride took about 30mins and the driver made it very entertaining with a punchy "Learn Patois" session! You do not need to take anything special but I recommend a... More

Spent an hour floating down the river on a bamboo raft Guide was excellent even if he did try and sell us some carved bamboo - not expensive though. Very interesting and worth the money

Our two and a half hour excursion down the Martha Brae River was exciting and relaxing. Gondolier was very nice and sincere and we bought things along the river side to bring home for our family members. The best thing you can buy in Jamaica is the Blue Mountain coffee. If you from Jamaica to not forget to buy the... More
