This was my husbands and my favorite place, we went on this bamboo river cruise, just over an hour. another very reasonable and awesome experience. After we got back we went out in Jamaica and got jerk chicken. It was a couple of blocks from the cruise ship but authentic, for two jerk chicken dinners and two huge drinks it wasn't even 20.00 with tip!! Read Less

The BEST tour guides ever.
Sail Date: February 2018
The BEST tour guides ever. Just the River Rafting on the Martha Brae tour was worth the entire price of the cruise. I believe we got lucky and got the one guide that everyone dreams of but usually never get in a lifetime.

Took a lazy river rafting excursion on a bamboo raft. The rafts were great and built for only 2 people plus the guide. They also provided the typical Jamaican Jerk lunch.

Bamboo Rafting down the Martha Brae River was a very relaxing experience. It was a short bus ride to get to the rafting site (one of the reasons that I chose this excursion over others that had much longer travel times) and then we had time to use the restrooms, have a beverage, and look at a couple of shops before our rafting group was called. Each raft holds two passengers plus the raft captain so our family of four went on two rafts - one parent and one child per raft. This worked out perfectly. The ride is very gentle and peaceful. The captain for our raft, Blake, gave me a lot of information about the plants that we were passing and the history of Jamaica. He was fun and interesting. The captain of my husband's raft was not very talkative and mainly answered questions as my husband asked them. The scenery and ride will be beautiful no matter what however some of your experience will definitely depend on the raft captain that you get. Read Less

I had taken the river raft trip in 1975 with my parents, and had wonderful memories of it, so I was excited to take it again, this time with my daughters. It did not disappoint. The little herb garden, complete with marijuana plants, was interesting. The beautiful grounds had a nice bar and bathrooms, and of course, they tried to sell us some souvenirs. The highlight of this excursion is the raft captains who are always so friendly and accommodating, taking your picture, and pointing our orchids in the trees and historical sights. There is a soft sell in a few spots on the river from native vendors, and an interesting guy who runs along the bank and throws a little wooden carving of the raft in your boat; one tourist bought it for $4. This is a very peaceful float down a beautiful little river, and at the end your captain will offer a hand-carved souvenir which he created and will personalize with your name and his. A fun trip for children, and they do offer life vests. The water is around four feet deep, we were told, and it is very clean. This was the best excursion for us! Do cover yourself in mosquito repellent. No snakes or crocodiles or anything in these waters. Read Less

If you are looking for a unique And relaxing Jamaican experience this tour is for you. It is the Jamaican version of a Venetian gondala ride. We loved it. You sit on a bamboo raft and a Raft guide pilots your raft for the next 60 minutes along the pretty Martha Brea river. At a few bends in the rivet Jamaicans yell out from the banks asking if you would like to buy food, beer, water or crafts. They are not pushy and accept no as an answer without any arguing. Read Less

Beautiful and quiet. Comfortable, two person seating on raft paddled by guide down Martha Brae River. Guides do not give any narrative, but it was really relaxing and scenic. I enjoyed it and would recommend.

Quiet tranquil float down a river with a modest but tasty lunch. A little hard sell but not crazy, they were very polite for Jamaicans. Not an action packed excursion but comfortable for older folks that don't want to get wet might be just the ticket. Getting off and on the raft maybe a slight challenge just be careful. Rafts seem best for 2 people. Read Less
