This was one of our favorite excursions. BEAUTIFUL!! Well worth the $. ($60 for the raft) The kids (10 and 14) swam down the river next to our raft. They had a great time!! I loved the scenery and our guide.

An escape from the noise and bustle of the beach resorts, and a peaceful, beautiful location - surrounded by bananas and bamboo. It was a highlight for the kids, who also loved the carved calabash sold by the raft captains.

Our guide Capt. Murphy, a true Rasta Man was marvelous. He did not rush our trip and really made sure that we understood and appreciated the tranquility of this trip!

Unique experience and quite relaxing. Long bamboo rafts propelled along the river by a man with a long bamboo pole. About an hour long trip.

We had a fantastic captain. Started out on the second raft but finished last. This was because our captain took his time to give us a lesson in everything the Jamaican jungle had to offer from the Pig tree to a bang bang plant. Just amazing when he asked me if I would like to have a go punting the... More

We wanted our traveling friends to experience a river raft trip for what we consider a true Jamaican experience. It didn't disappoint and in fact was better than 10 years ago. The little departure village is very accommodating and the guides awesome personalities. Meandering down the river through lush vegetation and thoughtful commentary makes for a sweet couple hrs. One... More

The River tour was very relaxing as it was a slow day..a Monday. The views of the trees and foliage was great as well as the sounds of all the tropical birds. I did not... More

Enjoyed the ride down this beautiful, calm river! WOW, I loved it. Safe for small children, I had my 3-yr-old. They provide life jackets for all rafts. The water was a beautiful turquoise. If you do this, make sure you take money. There are vendors along the banks of the river selling souvenirs and beer, water. I could spend all... More
