Enjoy a rollicking romp along Jamaica's Rio Bueno while docked at Falmouth port. Hop on a tube and follow your guide on a down-river adventure around twists and turns and across rambling rapids, admiring the lush jungle scenery and keeping an eye out for wildlife as you go. Break for a swim and channel your inner-Tarzan on a rope swing before floating your way to the Caribbean Sea, where a white-sand beach is waiting. This shore excursion includes round-trip transport.
What to Expect
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, you’ll 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.

The worst $180 I have ever spent

35 mins from top of the Hydro electric plant to the cement factory at the end. Bus picked us up 35 mins late. Same price for kids as adults. Nothing to see along the way except some blokes mucking about on a dodgy bridge. The...More

Whooping and hollering fun

Our family of 8 had a great afternoon running our tubes down the river. No super challenging Rapids, just heavy enough to get pretty wet on chilly waters. We started out in a line and wound up solo . Our guide knew every nook and...More

I believe the minimum age is 7 or 8 years of age. My youngest was 7.5 when we went and she had to ride with my husband because she was too small. I don't know who strict they are if the child rides in a tube with an adult.
