Owner description: Get up close and personal with the Chukka White River Valley location, offering stunning natural beauty and historic landmarks. The clarity of the water at White River Valley and the consistency of the river flow make it stand out above other locations on the island. The limestone bedrock filters the river’s water so it remains crystal clear even when there’s flooding. Located in St. Mary, Jamaica, this location is home to beautiful wildlife and an extensive history. With the exciting zipline adventure and thrilling river tubing journey this location is the perfect piece of paradise when paired with the Blue Hole experience!

“Rapheal and tubing was awesome!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had so much fun on this excursion. We booked it through Mark's Tours and our guide, Mark's wife, Jenese was great at getting us around places. When we arrived there Rapheal helped us to the water and guided us and our tubes down the river. He sang great songs and kept us entertained the whole way. We were a small group of 4 so we were happy.
Take your water shoes as you will be escorted out of the water half way so you can shop and look at some pictures they take of you. There is a fee but totally worth it unless you have your own water camera. Red Stripe is for sale too!!
The trip last about 45 min. Wish it was longer. We hope to return in the future. It was a great way to spend my 40th birthday.

“Fantastic Family Excursion”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

From the breathtaking views, shallow clear waters, small but fun rapids and the most friendly guide George, this is an excursion for all ages! George serenaded us with some Bob Marley as we floated leisurely down the beautiful river, taking in the magical views. We stopped part way to swing on a swing and from a rope in the water and buy a few trinkets from the shop before climbing back into the tube for the remainder of the voyage.

We rented a cab for the day. Definitely the way to see Jamaica and have a more "local" experience. Highly recommended!

A must do in Jamaica! <3

“Nice and relaxing”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Our group of 4 enjoyed the slow easy pace of this excursion. The rapids add a little spice but nothing too crazy. Mid way they stop you and you can have pics taken to buy or drinks or crafts then you keep going. Nice and peaceful. 25$ per person

“Great ride - some small rapids make it extra fun!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Did this tour thanks to Marvyn's Paradise Tours. He drove us here and set us up with two fantastic guides. Tubes have a bottom to them, thank goodness. Often, the water moves quickly and we brushed over rocks. I'm glad the tube's bottom was there to prevent sore booties. Our group was 6 people, ages 9-76, and all had a great time. Two guides were right there and helpful. They sang great songs, and we sang along with them as we floated. They worked very hard to keep us all comfortable and together. They were constantly in and out and paddling around to catch up or move over or something to keep everyone happy. One guest was quite nervous in the water, and guide stayed with her the whole time. Water shoes are not necessary, but we wore them. Stopped twice on the ride. Once to swing on typical backyard swing hung up on the trees and another to jump in off the river bank into a deep spot. Whole trip lasted about an hour and was enjoyed by all. Water is quite cool. No sunscreen needed. Whole thing in the shade. There are a few spots where the water rushes over some rocks rather quickly. The first spot surprised us and there were squeals of delight. Then, we were ready for those spots and hung on a little bit tighter. But really, this is a great outing for all ages...young and old. Just beware this it's not a totally calm flat ride...there are some quick spots. Pictures for this attraction show helmet and colorful tubes. Our tubes were black and we didn't wear helmets or life vests. Guides made this ride really exceptional. We felt safe and that they were happy to have us there.
