Peaceful serene romantic sitting on a raft being propelled down the river by a nice man and a pole. A three mile trip of perfection. There are goods to be purchased should you feel inclined to buy.

This tour is very relaxing. The river was running a little fast due to all the rain but was very nice and peaceful. I thought it was over priced but saw a lot of plants I wouldn't have otherwise. Not much wildlife thou. The guide was very nice and explained a lot.

Typical tourist trap. Lead you threw some stores before taking you to your raft. The raft ride was relaxing, we'll for us not the poor guy doing all the work. Did not see any wildlife not a thing. Just as you see the end coming up your guide will stop paddling and try and sell you a scribed coconut shell,... More

We took in the 3-mile Martha Brae River Raft excursion and would highly recommend it. Captain 22 Trevor guided us down the 3 mile river on a raft constructed of bamboo. So relaxing...a must for the romantics!

We went down the river on an excursion from a Carnival Cruise and it was amazing! The water is so pretty and the scenery just as intriguing. It's a bit of a drive from the port of Montego Bay so you get to see some of the city outs of the port. Good time.

Our driver was great and did his best to keep us Informed on Jamaican culture and land marks as we were on our way to the river rafts. When we got there we were approached to buy stuff as this very common but very annoying in jamaica. The boat ride down is approx 25 min long but they claim it's... More

This was a great way to spend the morning. You float down the river on a raft made by your guide. The guides are great at pointing out different plants and attractions.

Very relaxing experience. The guide gave so much local detail. Scenery was great. Easy to do through your concierge.
