As if heart-pounding, white-water tubing wasn't enough for one Montego Bay day, it's only the beginning! After meeting your driver and small group, you will set out from Montego Bay for the Rio Bueno, approximately 40 minutes away along the scenic coast.
Upon arrival you will walk along the jungle trail, leading you to the launching point of your tubing adventure. After receiving some final instructions from your guides, it's time to jump in your tube and begin your exciting river adventure.
A mix of currents carry you downstream as you sit back and admire the natural surroundings of the river valley before feeling the rush of the splashing rapids. The course takes you over a variety of class 2 river rapids, each followed by a calm section to chill out and lounge in your tube. There is a stop along the way for a chance to swim in the water and try out the Tarzan rope swing, a popular activity for everyone to enjoy.
As the river begins to slow down, you enter the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. From there you are pulled by boat (weather permitting) until landing ashore on a beautiful private beach, where you can purchase a refreshing drink, take a dip in the sea, and view some of the amazing photographs taken by our professional photographer. The float usually takes between 45 and 55 minutes, depending on the current and how much time is taken at the midway stop. Your driver will safeguard your belongings during the trip, and will meet you at the end of the river
Returning to the Montego Bay area, you will make a stop for approximately 40 minutes at the Shoppes at Rose Hall, where you can shop or relax with a cup of Blue Mountain coffee. You will then have a driving orientation along the "hip strip" of Montego Bay, the most popular area with visitors.

My family of 4 and I really enjoyed our adventure through the Jamaican jungle! It was just us and our guide (we didn't request a personal trip, it just turned out that way). Our guide took great care of us and at one point, when my husband lost his phone in the water, the guide recovered it for us! We have had wonderful luck with Shore Excursions Group, having booked 5 or 6 excursions with them now! Great value for a great time!

We chose to do white water river tubing. It was THE most fun and entertaining, Trip! Our driver and the guide, we're both well informed and kept us all safe. They made sure we all enjoyed the day!
Elvis was our guide...for just our family...it was wonderful...he was kind, informative, and extremely entertaining. We really enjoyed our float...and it was so amazing to come around the corner and all of a sudden go from being in a fresh water river a beautiful blue/green ocean. The lunch (a separate cost )at the beach was delicious...we felt well taken care of!!! Thank you Elvis!!!
I thought the ""white water"" areas would be a little more extreme but it was still a good time. The hike to the top of the river was very pretty and easy. The guide talked about different trees and plants as we walked past them. He took us to a secret waterfall just above the start of the river very pretty. There was an area to jump off into the water while you wait for the boat to take you to the beach, we got fun pictures there. The beach is private very relaxing and quiet we were given a traditional chicken meal and beer while we wait for our van to pick us up. Very delicious food and red stripes new lemon beer is soooo good!
