Know More about this tour

When your cruise ship docks in the Falmouth port, embark on an exciting tubing adventure down the scenic Rio Bueno, a river in Jamaica. After pickup from the Falmouth port, youll receive a brief safety overview and training before taking a short walk over the Irie Bridge through the lush rainforest to the launching spot.

Then, jump in your tube and follow your guide downstream! Enjoy the twists and turns of the Rio Bueno as you float down the winding river. Stop for a break under bamboo trees and spend time relaxing by the riverbanks, swimming in the cool waters or trying out the nearby rope swing.

After lounging, get back in your tube and float over some more rushing rapids as you pass under an old stone bridge toward the Caribbean Sea. Once you reach the river delta, paddle over a few small waves with your guide to get to the white-sand shores of Bengal Bay. Here, lounge in the sun, swim, and admire the tropical Jamaican landscape.

After your exciting Rio Bueno shore excursion, enjoy a relaxing drive back to the Falmouth port.

    What an amazing afternoon adventure! Our family of four had a fun, exciting, entertaining and educational time tubing. Our guide CJ made the day with information about the various, plants along the river, the birds all while guiding our tubes safely down the rapids. We were even lucky enough to sample some sugar cane and have a song or two from CJ as we floated along. The information that he had about his home - from the medicinal plants and customs with the plants. He was not only made us feel safe but he was also a wealth of knowledge and personality. CJ made this excursion one we will never forget!

    Great experience, Garth was a great tour guide! Last minute decision to book and glad we did! Garth gave us a lot of info about local vegetation as we took the short nature walk to the tube put in. Ended in the ocean and got some fresh picked star fruit and almonds. Really enjoyed learning about the area and the super fun tubing down the rapids!

    Didn't know where exactly we were headed after much dialogue before with the rep. if you call ahead ask them to send their Google Map before heading out on that day. We didnt get it before as we drove pass headed to Duncans and had to turn back..smh. As you come off the hill look out for the irrigation pump station on your left hand. Make sure you reach by/before 10 as the amount of vehicles that were behind us..Wow. We were greeted as we pulled into the parking lot by Big Ben great dude, gave us a warm welcome and showed us the changing room and directed us to the gears area. Keimo was my guide and he did an excellent job of representing River Rapids, Rio Bueno. Going across that bridge had me in knots. The trek through the forest was exhilarating inhaling the cool clean crisp air was a joy. Climbing the waterfall climb was a treat in itself, felt much safer in those water shoes. The tubing was fun cruising on the river, i would go back after a rainy day just to experience when the river rises and we were then off to the beach. Lovely spot and the water is shallow that you can go far enough, saw a school of dolphins playing out at sea. The snack counter is just that. It would have been an added plus,if they grilled chicken on the beach as our group was famished after that adventure, do make sure you have sunscreen on. Although we carried light food, if a restaurant operated on the property it would have been much more ideal. Oh well we made use of that jerk center and KFC/Starbucks at Drax Hall.

    Way cool, fun adventure. You will leave port and head out for about 30 min, then go on a small drit road to where you will get into the river. Its a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. The guides are way cool. We were a group of 21 and they took us all. My group had Latvin, and he was very cool. The other guides were awesome as well. We toured the falls, jumped into the river and just had fun. Ended up in a beautiful cove with warm water and hung out there for a bit. This is a great tour / event. You will love it.

    Had a blast!!! It started to down pour rain just as we arrived but no big deal your in the water anyway! We had Davion as our tour guide and he was a blast!!!! He kept it fun for us and kept us safe. He gave us a lot of information about the river and the things surrounding it. The river is beautiful even in the rain. It wasn't a long tub ride but it was fun!!! I hope if you go you get Davian as your guy!!! Thanks for a great time and awesome memories.

    It was a great trip and we had an excellent tour guide in Lavin. Would recommend for anyone to give it a try local or tourist. Ask for our tour guide and you'll definitely have a great time.
