Owner description: Get up close and personal with the Chukka White River Valley location, offering stunning natural beauty and historic landmarks. The clarity of the water at White River Valley and the consistency of the river flow make it stand out above other locations on the island. The limestone bedrock filters the river’s water so it remains crystal clear even when there’s flooding. Located in St. Mary, Jamaica, this location is home to beautiful wildlife and an extensive history. With the exciting zipline adventure and thrilling river tubing journey this location is the perfect piece of paradise when paired with the Blue Hole experience!

Booked this excursion from the Island Routes Tour Desk at our Sandals hotel. After first the wrong tour, then the wrong date was booked, we eventually made it on our way.

We started off ziplining, which was fun although very short. It is 3 parts, of which the last part is 20 feet above ground over a park. Then we went tubing which was nice and relaxed. The attendants both at the ziplining and tubing areas were very good, they kept a close eyes on everyone and were very helpful if you got stuck or keeping your pace with the group.

The reason this excursion is not very good is because the White River facilities/infrastructure was quite basic and underdeveloped.

The road was a little treacherous getting there but it was well worth the ride. The water was beautiful as well as the scenery down the river. We loved the calm waters along with the rapids. It was a peaceful, refreshing ride down the river and we loved stopping to taste the jerk chicken. It was our first time zip-lining. My husband and I are both in our 60's and really enjoyed this experience too.

Zip lininig is kind of lame with only 3 lines but the tubing down the white river was awesome!

We added this to our itinerary for our day in port. It was $25 pp for a tube that has a plastic base to sit on--so your butt is on it in the hole of the tube. It was comfortable and relaxing it. There were a few "rapids" but nothing that was too wild. We had a tour guide that took us four and another couple..he manuevered the river keeping us in the center. We stopped for a "break" at a tree with a swing--but it was mainly to get us to a hut where you could purchase souveniers and photos. No pressure if you are not interested. We had a great time and loved this trip. We tipped our guide $5pp but he did not pressure us to tip him. We would do this again!

Went river tubing on an excursion in late February. Probably one of the best excursions that I've ever been on. Lots of rapids, great guides, and places to stop and jump off the banks into the river. Highly recommended.
