We did the Hibiscus Eco Village tubing and waterfall excursion. Although it involved a few "legs" of long bus rides to the tubing, to the waterfall, and back to the pier, the overall experience was great. Tubing was fun (not dangerous - but that can be dependent upon the rain), and the waterfall was cool to see and swim under (not directly under though - that would hurt!). Read Less

My 6th time!
My 6th time! Appreciated that Antours was concerned about high waters from recent rain and passed the time taking us to Emerald Pool while the river water receded. Antours is always reliable and delivers a great experience.

This was fun but I would not do this tour again because of the underwater river rocks we kept hitting as we tabbed This was a rough tubing experience because of the rough water an underwater river rocks we kept bumping over. We were bruised from hitting so many rocks as we tubed. The guides were great but really could not do anything about the rocks. You also need to be physically agile to do this tour. Read Less

Unfortunately and sadly, due to hurricane Erika, there are new start and stop points. The water level was low which led to scraping our bottoms on rocks. The experience was slower than in the past.

The River Tubing was tons of fun and the guides were great. However, the tour bus we had was DIRTY and smelled. Our guide and driver were great. The shack after the river where we were able to buy a food and drinks, while it was a shack, the food was delicious, however, no facilities there. When we did get to facilities, they were filthy and no soap and paper towels to clean your hands. While I would like to give this excursion a better rating, I cannot do so, since there should be some place to clean up. Read Less

I did a four hour tour featuring river tubing. This is the second time I have done this tour. It makes me happy. There was lots of laughter as the smooth rocks cause the river tubes to spin, sort of like bumper cars on the water. This is a tour I will repeat each time I return here. Really no need to be responsible for carrying this tube. The guides are quite knowledge about the river and the flow patterns in the river. They are in the river with you, standing in thigh high water to assist during the entire experience. Read Less

This was our absolute favorite excursion of the trip - maybe any trip. Our guide filled us with knowledge about the rainforest and Grenada itself. Our river trip was ridiculously gorgeous with lush green foliage and a few monkeys too. The guides for the tubing portion of the trip worked their butts off making sure everyone was safe - a few small rapids along the way for exhilaration - super enjoyable!! Read Less

We pre-booked an excursion, which is something we NEVER do, unless it was to the Beach at Cayo Levantado, Samana, DR. This tour was to go to Hibiscus Falls and see the waterfall for awhile before going on an hour and half long river tubing expedition down a 1.5 mile track. We only did the excursion knowing how poor the island is, and there really isn't much else to do on the island (we have been here twice before, also on the Noordam.) The excursion was great, and Dominica remains high up there on my list of favorite islands, despite the extremely poor conditions on the island. Read Less

This tour included river tubing in the rain forest and a small hike to see the Emerald Pool. Our tour guide, Crisca, was very informative and excited to tell us about the island. The water was low in the river but we still enjoyed the tubing portion(just be careful as it is easy to run into/over rocks). It does require some physical ability as there's hiking up/down steps to the Emerald Pool and there are some rapids in the river. There was an older gentleman who flipped out of his inner tube and bumped his helmet on a rock but escaped unharmed.(and yet he felt compelled to share that he also nearly lost his swimming shorts in the incident!) Overall, it was fun and was worth the convenience of being taken around the island. We also got tiny little cups of rum punch. The 'tiny' part was not an issue as the punch was delicious and quite potent! Read Less

Transportation to and from the river was fine, the only exception being the last mile or so down a very rough road. But, I didn't book this for the bus ride. The tubing was outstanding. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and quite entertaining. The tubing consisted of coasting down the river including many parts that had moderate rapids with several stops to make sure that everyone was together. The guides indicated that they have had guest as young as 2 years and as old as 90. Read Less
