Beach Horseback Riding and Tubing Shore Trip

Take our Beach Horseback Riding and White River Tubing Tour and two things are certain: you'll have the time of your life, and you'll never want to return to civilization!

After being picked up at the pier for your Falmouth cruise excursion, you will drive to the corral approximately 40-minutes away. You'll receive a safety briefing and a helmet, which you will be required to wear for the duration of the ride. After saddling up, you will set out with your trained tour guide for a scenic countryside trail ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first islanders- their beliefs, habits, and existence-before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag.

Ride through a rural trail surrounded by vegetables grown by local farmers, shaded by almond and coconut trees; follow your guide throughout this trail at a beginner's pace until you reach a stretch of white sandy beach.

Upon arriving at this stretch of private beach, you will strip down to your bathing suits, while the saddles are removed from the horses and are traded for a bareback pad. You will then set out on a 5-minute bareback horse ride experience in the Caribbean Sea--a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. Your total time with the horses is approximately 45-minutes. Time in the water is approximately 5 to 10 minutes.

The return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other water birds fish in the shallow waters, through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an 18th-century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel that powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.

You will then drive to the White River, where you will greeted by one of your river guides upon arrival. Your tour guide will direct you to the registration office for check in and mandatory signing of a waiver form. After signing the waiver form, you will be given a helmet and led outside to be fitted with your life jacket and propulsion gloves.You'll receive some final safety instructions from your guide and then you will be on your way, as you're led across the IRIE Bridge and into the rainforest. Your 10 minute walk along the jungle path leads you to the launching point of your river adventure. Now it's time to jump into the cool water and begin your exciting journey downstream! You tube over various areas of splashing rapids as you paddle your way through the many twists and turns of the river. As you pass under the old stone bridge, the river currents carry you on a relaxing ride towards the Caribbean Sea. Once you reach the river delta, paddle over some small waves that will carry you to the sandy shores of Bengal Bay. You walk along the shore for about 5 minutes before arriving at Bengal Beach for some time to relax, or swim in the sea.

Our trip guide was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. She coordinated the segments beautifully. We had small groups on both activities. The horses and hosts were wonderful, the scenery fantastic. We always felt safe and welcome and taken care of.

We had an amazing time in Jamaica! We had a van take us to the stables and there we were taken on a private horseback ride through old sugarplain fields and then to the beach. It was a once in a lifetime experience ! The horses go pretty deep in the water and it was so much fun. Our guide was so friendly and took so many photos and videos of us on my phone for free. We will definitely be back!

Great day in Jamaica!

This was a great excursion. We had a guide ride with us in the van and tell us all about Jamaica. She was very sweet and knowledgeable. We were then dropped off to horseback ride. The guides were wonderful! We were then picked up with the guide and dropped off to go tubing.... a lot of fun and you feel like you are in the midddle of the rain forest! We were then picked up and dropped off in an area to go shopping. On our way back to the port we stopped at a local jerk chicken place that was the best!!!!! This tour was small which was awesome! I would never book through the cruise ship for an excursion...only through Priceline!

A nice relaxing day

What a refreshing way to spend a day. A nice horseback ride through the woods and then running in the ocean! It felt pretty adventurous to those of us who aren't incredibly athletic. The tubing was also fun, but realize that you definitely will get water splashed in your face. It's not just a lazy river ride.

Beach Horseback Ride and Tubing
April 13, 2017
My granddaughters and I chose this tour out of Falmouth, Jamaica. Our guide was well acquainted with Jamaica. The fellows that work with the horses, were exceptionally good at getting newbies, like my one granddaugther comfortable on her horse. The main guide stayed with her until she realized she was fine. We rode down a trail to the beach, heard about an ancient sugar mill, and then waited for the group head of us, and as they went out into the water, we talked with the lady who gave us a small sample of Jamaican food. And the girls bought some small souvenirs. The horses were lively enough not to be nags, and gentle enough for all to enjoy the ride, especially when we trotted them through the water. We all were very happy with our horseback riding experience. And although we put bug stuff on, there appeared to be few bugs around. The tubing was also delightful, and very refreshing after riding horses. Also a delight experience.
