We decided to book our tour threw Courtney based on the amazing reviews on cruise critics. And let me tell you that everyone is correct in saying Courtney is the best way to go when visiting the island. We went down the white river and although they said it had rapids they were medium but fun and inbetween the river was lazy.
We decided to Jump into a cab and go to seven mile beach. It was a $ 8 cab ride and about 5 minutes. It was the best decision. The water was crystal clear, sand was clean and they had public bathrooms, bar & restaurant, chair & umbrella rentals. Completely relaxing day. Easy to get back to the ship because cabs were constantly filling the parking lot. It was a very safe beach too
