Owner description: River Rapids Adventures is JAMAICA'S most popular river attraction located just 20 minutes from the Falmouth cruise port. We currently offer 4 fun activities on the Rio Bueno river with something for everyone in the family to enjoy . For mild adventure seekers, we offer our river rafting tour, a popular excursion for guests who want to enjoy the many moods of the river in a white water raft captained by one of our experienced tour guides. For something a little more challenging, we have a white water kayaking tour for 2, great for couple or friends who want to paddle on their own and get a better feel of the class 1 and class 2 rapids found along the river course. Our recently added tubing tour is a sure bet for those of you wanting a wet and wild ride on the river while enjoying the safety and comfort of your own river tube. If those 3 tours just don't offer enough excitement, then our river boarding tour is surely for you. Gear up, grab your river board, and surf the cool waters of the Rio Bueno as you make your way through multiple sections of splashing rapids and crystal clear river pools. All tours are fully guided and end on a private beach located close to the river delta. Refreshments, Snacks, Photos, and Souvenirs are available for purchase at the beach.

My boyfriend and I loved this excursion! we had a great guide (Brian, I think) that was really knowledgable and made me feel really comfortable when I was a little nervous at first... We would definitely do this again. We also liked that we weren't gone from the resort the whole day- we were back pool side by 1! We loved all the pictures they took that were available after the tour. Can't wait to go back!

Jerome was the best guide we could have imagined. We took an interesting bus ride to the river. Our family of four took a raft down a very easy stream that the kids loved - it was fast enough to excite them but safe for all. Then everyone took a turn on the rope swing. The trip ended at a beautiful beach with jerk chicken dinners and $2.00 Run punch. What a great day. Much cheaper to book this than a cruise excursion. A+

We recently went on this trip with a large group (10 people) and everyone had a great time. The guides were very professional but friendly and informative and the equipment was of good quality. One nice thing about this trip is that there is an option for all age groups and level of fitness. For those who may be a bit less adventurous there is a guided raft, which allows you to safely enjoy the beauty of the river, without much strenuous activity. For the thrill seekers there are the boogie boards which the younger members of our party really enjoyed. For my money the tubes are the way to go because you get to feel the power of the river without having to negotiate the rocks in the rapids on the boards. Rope swing was fun, but my form was a little shaky!
The real star of this trip however is the Bengal River and surrounding countryside which are pristine and simply breath taking.The water was refreshing & crystal clear and the beauty of the riverbank and surrounding vegetation was truly unique. It had rained in the mountains the day before our trip, so the river was running especially fast, which added to the fun factor and challenge. It was nice to see a different side of the island than the usual tourist attractions. I highly recommend this trip as a fun family excursion. The tow trip to the beach and a nice cold Red Stripe were a fitting end to a very enjoyable morning. Check this attraction out, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and 16 & 14 yr old daughter & son all loved the excursion. The guide was named Kenroy McKenzie. He allowed us to be free & have fun but kept us safe and pointed out some cool sights and showed us the rope jump In the water. One of the highlites of our trip to Jamaica.
