We did the bamboo rafting tour - we got there at the very end of the day, and the golden twilight was lovely as we drifted through the river. Our guide was Captain Ray - he was great and told us some interesting history and stories. Very recommended.

This is a gentle and relaxing hour on the river, the raft captains entertain and tell you about the wild life and fauna, it was a lovely experience

This is a must do I think! This is such a unique trip down the river on a hand made bamboo raft! It was just awesome - just took in the river scenery, relaxed and drank a few Red Stripes on the way. Donovan was our raft guide and was very sweet and knowledgeable...we enjoyed everything about this tour!

This was a lovely relaxing trip down the river it took about 90 minutes going slowly looking at the wildlife chilling out time in all the heat. We had Mr Johnson as our guide who was really nice talking to us about Jamacia answering all our questions. very nice trip the most scary part was not falling in as you was getting on the raft.

Fortunately, we were there on a day when there were no cruise ships, so we had a quiet river bamboo ride to ourselves. Sam was our bamboo raft guide. He was informative and would stop if you wanted him to do so but never suggest stopping at any of the side vendors - in other words, you did not have to worry about dealing with a sales pitch on a relaxing bamboo raft. The trip took about 90 minutes. It is amazing hearing how loud the bamboo is when it creaks. We came at the perfect time of the year and day for avoiding insects - July and early afternoon - hot, sunny, well after the rainy season. It was so quiet and serene and Sam talked if you asked him questions, but he was quiet when he sensed you were just listening to the bamboo creak. It was a perfectly quiet adventure.
