We enjoyed the white water river tubing. Our tour guide, Davian was great! We had a lot of fun and he was very knowledgeable on Falmouth and the river. I would highly suggest this excursion, very relaxing and fun!

This was great fun. The excursion was limited to a small group of people (~16). This was split into smaller groups when we arrived at the river. We had a guide for the four of us (wife and two daughters). This guy basically took care of us and made sure we didn't get hurt. We explored the falls at the start of the trip and he made sure we didn't fall down and bust our chops. The trip down the river was quite fun. Lots of rapids. Our guide had us hold on to the handles of each others tubes and we went down the river together. He was on a separate tube and kept us of the rocks. Very personable and fun. The river flows into the ocean. At the end of the tubing trip we were transferred to rafts and towed to a private beach for transport back to the ship. We spent about 30 minutes there. Local jerk chicken and drinks were available for purchase. The chicken was excellent and I felt safe eating it as all the locals and the guides were eating.

This excursion was amazing! It was just our group, and by group I mean couple, so it made it that much more fun. Our guide, Lesley, was amazing! He took us up stream a bit to see some waterfalls and explore areas connected to the tubing experience; he called it an extra tour. That made it that much better because he made it not just about the tubing adventure, but an adventure period. The water was a bit chilly but warmed up rather quickly too. The overall surroundings made the tubing adventure that much more fun. I do wish we had more rapids, but hey, it was still great! The only downside was not doing the rope swing; they don't really want you to do it but will stop if you insist. Afterwards, we were dropped off on a beach and were able to do a bit of swimming. There was a small shop for shopping and grabbing a bite to eat, and they did not hound you to buy anything. Overall, this excursion was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it for all ages!

This was a fun adventure and I would recommend this excursion.
This was a fun excursion, more calm water than rapids. The river was clear and refreshing, our river guide and driver were fun and gave us fun information about history of the area and the river.

We enjoyed ourselves.
We Were lucky enough to have Darlin as our guide. He was amazing. He made sure we were all safe. There were 4 of us, 2 kids ages 12 and 15. We all enjoyed the excursion so much and would absolutely do the same one again next time. It was just the perfect amount of small rapids for our family. The lazier sections were also so nice. So nice to have such a small group, just our fam of 4 and the guide.

My nephew is still talking about the trip
If you're looking for something wild - this is not it. Good for a very moderate activity. But it was still fun.
Water was very cool. Guide was very helpful.
We went down the river as a family 4 of us and 1 guide we saw many groups of 10-12 people we had much more personal service

Our guide Marcus, was easy going, informative, knowledgeable and fun. We meet him inside the Falmouth, Jamaica port and he proceeded to take us on a driving tour of the highlights of the area in an air conditioned van. He pointed out all the native plant, animal life on the island and gave us a short history of Falmouth. Our river guide fitted us with life vests then escorted us and another couple on a five minute walk with our inner tubes up to a landing spot. He gave us detailed instructions as what to expect on our ride. We floated down the river rather peacefully until we encountered at least five rapids on the way down. At one point a small boat meet us and which we transferred to and was taken from the mouth of the river into the ocean and then onto the beach. It was so relaxing, calming and fun too!
Guide was great

Our guide, Errol, made this trip totally awesome. He made us feel safe at all times and we were very impressed with all his knowledge about the river. So much fun! The picture we purchased is a favorite and they did a terrific job of taking photos while we floated. We recommend to take some cash for local souvenirs. Great jerk chicken at the end of the float. Top notch.

I was a little concerned that it would be too rough - it was just right. Perfect, sure a little bumpy but to show you how easy it was, my niece and I were snapping photos and taking video. Of course, I was like, ""That's an $800 IPHONE"" still we got through and stopped at a charming beach. I wish I had bought the pictures they were selling and did not photograph myself! The guides were terrific, funny, pleasant and really caring.

Our family of nine did this excursion, ages from 58 to 10. Our ship got in pretty close to excursion time, but our excursion representative was waiting patiently for our group. He was so friendly and shared so much about the country and culture, very informative. We had a 20 minute drive to river and there were met by the river staff who geared us up with life jackets & hats and tubes. Two guides went on their waterboards alongside us to keep us safe and entertained us along the way. There were a few white water areas that made the float great fun. A place along the way to relax, swim, float and/or swing out on a rope into the river. Close to end met a boat that pulled us on a raft to the beach where we could purchase food & drinks and use restroom. The guide then took us back stopping at good picture points and historical points. You won't be disappointed.

We had a great narrated tour of the town and part of the island. We then went to a very well organized, well equiped rafting/tubing company that showed us a fun, exciting trip down the river Columbus discovered! The guide was fantastic! The pictures they took were a highlight of the cruise. This little adventure should be one of your big recommendations!
Reviewer: Law Mom
A fun thing for anyone. Kids and all! My 4 year old and 13 year old had a blast. All of the tour guides were amazing.
I liked that this was organized on a local basis. It gave a much more authentic flavor to the experience than cruise line-based. Yet it was extremely well organized and seemed safe.
My husband and I really enjoyed this excursion on a recent cruise. Very professional and friendly staff. After leaving the port area, we traveled for approximately 30 min to the river with a stop for a great view of the ocean, including the end of the river where our tour would end. The river and surrounding is beautiful...lush greens on the sides. We did the tubes down the river which was thrilling with the rapids and relaxing in between. At the end, transferred to a raft to be puled by a boat into the bay and beach area. Very beautiful. If you want more adventure try the body boards...they looked like a lot of fun.
Wonderful time in the river. Enjoyed the drive there also to see some of Jimaca.
