“Tubing in Jamaica Recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We had a group of 4 and Andre was our guide. You grab your tube, they give you a helmet and life vest, (don't forget your water shoes even though you can rent them for 10 dollars). You walk for a few minutes up river and splash into the cool spring that runs 27km ( you only do the last 3km of it.) It is a rocky bottom so if you see something coming at you... lift your butt. You go down the river holding on to other tubers so you all go at once. When you finish there is a boat that comes and gets you, ( ours didn't show so we all paddled out to the ocean and walked the 100m to the meet area). Nice way to spend a few hours, bring sunscreen. At the end, there was awesome jerk chicken to buy for $6. Red Stripe and refreshments to purchase and please people buy your guide lunch and give a tip. Let's represent for tourists. Have fun.

This was fun excursion. The river we tubed through was pretty polluted, and that was sad (and a little yucky if you floated too close). It also went right through the homes (shacks) of the locals, which was sad and really made you reflect on things (not exactly uplifting, but perhaps a good thing nonetheless).

We had gone tubing in the tropical rain forest in Dominica in 2010, and this dind't honestly compare to that (that was a gorgeous experience that I would highly suggest). But it was still fun and worth the price. We did it as a combo excursion along with the Dunn's Falls climb. The tour guides for the river on this were most friendly. The lunch at the local hotel after left much (much!!) to be desired, and I felt bad they wouldn't let our guides attend lunch when they were clearly hungry and asked several of us to sneak things for them from the buffet.

If you're doing this stuff as a tour, be mindful you'll have a guide for the overall trip, and guides for the specific activities each leg along the way; so bring cash for tipping. They live from the tips, literally.
