A best kept secret. This jewel of the island needs to be promoted more intentionally. It was a sweet escape from the noise of life. Yes - they are always trying to sell the "trinkets" along the river bank but it is part of the charm. Hilton was a great guide -even let my hubby captain for a bit of the ride

We were so pleasantly surprised with this excursion. Even tho there were lots of people ahead and behind us we felt like we were the only ones on this river at times. Our guide was very informative on the foliage and history of this river. We did end up buying a souvenir from him. And he carved his name into it. He took our picture on the raft on the part he called Memory Lane. Very nice afternoon.

We took the excursion while staying at a resort in Ocho Rios. ( 1 hr ride from Ocho Rios, would be about 1 hr from Montego Bay)

The trip was amazing. Very romantic as well as informative. Mention to the captain at the beginning of the trip if you want to take a dip in the river. It's pretty cold at first but feels great after a few minutes.

Also, the carvings the Captains have to sell were much better than I thought they would be. The carvings seemed to range from $20-30 US.

Take bug spray just in case!

Very relaxing and beautiful. Expect to be asked to purchase carvings from your guide, but if you are interested they are unique. Recommend for a romantic relaxing trip. Not for thrill seekers.
