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.
What a great way to take in the sights of Jamaica ad learn about the local flora and fauna! Our guide, Kemo, was very knowledgeable about the history and local culture and shared tidbits of information aboutall things Jamaican. We learned a bit of the language while we rode the river. The Rio Buenos can flow gently or move swiftly, but Kemo kept us safe and entertained. Definitely give this a try!

Our driver, the tubing guide, and everyone we met during this excursion were incredibly helpful and friendly! The tubing was fun, but it was the people who made this excursion so much more! I would definitely do this again, just to see the people who made this so much fun. Recommended, you can't go wrong!

Fun! Fun! Fun! Our group of 8 (all 60 & over) had a blast! Our guides, Rick & Biggie, were great. There were enough rapids to make this a fun ride. Would highly recommend this excursion. Our only complaint was that we were not given any time to enjoy the beautiful beach at the end.
