Very nice trip but its in a very poor location. The tour guide was nice and friendly. Although they try to sell you vases that they made and look for tips.

A really nice way to experience something different. It was like stepping back in to a time when everything moved slower, a gentle trip on a Bamboo raft floating down the meandering Martha Brae river. Our captain was very informative and great company. Be ready to tip or to buy one of their souvenirs.

Very well informed raft Captains and slow and sedate ride. You need to tip the guide or buy his wares to keep him happy.

This made our top 3 Jamaica moments all because of our raft captain, Daly! The river is beautiful but our day was made by Daly. He was so friendly and welcoming and we left the raft feeling like we had a new best friend. I would recommend anyone going on this trip to ask for him.

Martha Brae River raft tour is a must if you visit Jamaica, the tour itself is a very relaxing thing to do! We learned a lot from our tour guide. Great tour if you want to relax some and see a beautiful part of Jamaica. Just the flow down the river was so peaceful and entertaining. the scenery was breathtaking,... More

Ride a bamboo raft down the river. Our guide told us about the area and made our river ride so relaxing. It was a great way to spend the morning!!

Worth doing the tour. Interesting seeing all the plants around in an out-of-the-way atmosphere. Be aware that the "rafter" will tell you that he's not being paid; that he has to build his own raft; that he carved a gourd himself... And probably other things to shame you into big tips. It hurt the experience to be bugged for money... More

So glad I booked this attraction. The raft captain of our bamboo raft was really informative. Well done Donald ! You slowly drift down the Martha Brae river for over one and a half hours on a home made bamboo raft. With interesting information on the sights you see. Plant life vegetation, animals all pointed out It is so quiet.... More

This raft trip is awesome!! The guides know everything about their land & are more than willing to educate you about it. They make the rafts themselves & push on through the river for about an hour. If you want a tourist trap go to Dunns river, if you want a place to yourself, go here instead
