We went with our daughter, son in law and two year old grandbaby on this rafting trip. It was very relaxing and our captain told us many interesting things about the area. It took a little over an hour, which may have been a little long for the grandbaby, but she enjoyed being outside.

Our guide was Cecil and he was very knowledgable having been doing the rafting for 20 years. He identified tons of different plants and animals and told us stories of the region. The rafting tour was very relaxing but still fun! The raft was so unique made of bamboo and using a long bamboo pole to maneuver the raft. This... More

We booked with Amster through the hotel and they forgot us for the morning trip this worked out in our favour as we got the river almost to ourselves... we wish we had gone with our own driver tho but met him later in our trip he really looks after you Errol Mcbean 1-876-781-4900

James of was very knowledgeable of the sights, history of the river and plants and animals along the tour. His 20 years rafting the Martha Brae... More

This is one of my favorite excursions in Jamaica. Peaceful ride, the oarsman whistling as we glide sown the river. It is a simple and beautiful experience.

I should say that it would have been very relaxing if it wasn't pouring rain during our entire ride. Our guide Derick made the trip worthwhile with his first hand expirence of the island life.
