 A mere 20 miles from Montego Bay is the Martha Brae River. One of the top activities in Jamaica is to go rafting on this river. There are over 80 licensed and well-informed raft captains to guide you on bamboo rafts through picturesque sights along the banks.

Trips begin at the Martha Brae Village and end three miles downstream at Martha's Rest. Martha Brae village is a 6-acre horseshoe-shaped island. The village has been set up as the entrance to the Martha Brae rafting experience and features a bar, two gift shops, pool, gardens, picnic area and a herb garden named "Martha's Herb Garden". “Martha’s Rest” also offers a souvenir shop, bar, lounge area and restrooms.

There is adequate parking for buses waiting to pick up rafters at the end of their trip. The tour includes round trip transportation from your hotel.

  • It’s extremely pricey, about $65 for 2 people. And as the others mentioned, they try to sell you stuff everywhere. The river was beautiful and the rafting itself relaxing.

  • A nice and relaxed excursion. Enjoyed our rafting operator. Have your camera ready.

  • Perfect excursion for someone who doesn't want something that is physically exhausting. At the same time you are doing something other than just sitting in a van doing a city tour. The option to cruise down the river at a lazy pace on a bamboo raft  captained by your very own raft poler. Highly recommend it.

  • What an experience for my wife and I. We went river rafting last September and we still talk about it. It was very relaxing and entertaining.

  • The most serene rafting experience of my life. I would do this again in a heartbeat
