Falmouth Overview and White Water River Tubing
White Water River Tubing & Falmouth Overview Day Trip
After leaving the port you will be taken on a short drive through the historic town of Falmouth then unto your White Water adventure which is approximately 25 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. At the beach 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 to 55 minutes depending on the current and how much time is taken at the midway stop. Your driver, will safe guard your belongings during your Falmouth shore trip, and will meet you at the end of the river.
The river currents carry your tube over one final cascade as you pass under an old colonial stone bridge and head towards the Caribbean Sea where you will paddle your tube to a private beach. Here you will have approximately 30 minutes free time to swim, sun or purchase a refreshment from the beach bar. Before returning to your ship we stop at Columbus open air Museum where there is Scotchies Restaurant where you can purchase some local authentic Jamaican food.

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.
