I enjoyed the ride with Teddy, who kept us all entertained and informed and safe. The guides on the river knowledgeable, funny and energetic. However, when I called Chukka to confirm my pick-up time, no one answered; thankfully, I had access to email but the representative told me they didn't have the afternoon pick-up available and I would need to go in the morning (my voucher clearly indicates that I purchased the 1:30 PM tour). Fortunately, I had flexibility in this area. When we got to the location, we were informed that we needed to rent a lock at the cost of FIVE dollars, and the cashier with the attitude frightened us about bug spray, which cost $6. The subsequent pictures were marginal in quality, and overpriced (10 pictures for $30!) The tour itself was fun, and I believe in supporting the employees, but Chukka will nickel and dime you to death.
This is worth doing if you just want information about the background of Jamaica and be able to relax down a long lazy river. We expected to speed to be a whole lot faster and not be connected to 8 other tubes..pros if you wanted to get out into the water they stopped and gave you a chance to go swim
overall the river ride was okay, nothing too exciting. I would have preferred a more adventurous ride but it was very laiad back. Ideal for persons looking to laze about for the afternoon. Tour guides were friendly.
Cost of purchasing photos were excessive! so best to take your water proof camera and do your own snapping.
Went on this tour in late April. Not the rainy season so the river was down. Down so much in fact that the guides needed to pull you down the river in many area's where water level is low. They keep the tubing fun and overall it was a nice ride down the river. They said when the water is high it only takes 15 min to ride the river. It took us almost an hour with the water so low, no real flow I.E. need to be pulled by guides.
We were looking for simething more exciting. Your pictures on the website were deceiving. They show individual raft going down. We ended up being tied together and it was just a lazy river ride.
The river is really nice but the tubing itself through the river was a little slow. The guide were funny and entertaining and the rum punch was really good.
The tour was pretty, but seemed expensive for what it was. You spend about an hour and half floating lazily down a river and bake in the sun. It is nice if you have a good tour guide who can tell you about all the plants and trees you see but not great if you are looking for an exciting adventure.
