Montego Bay Shore Excursion: Rio Bueno Kayaking Adventure in Jamaica

Montego Bay Shore Excursion: Rio Bueno Kayaking Adventure in Jamaica

Paddle down Jamaica’s scenic Rio Bueno in a tandem kayak on this shore excursion! When your cruise ship docks in Montego Bay, embark on an exciting guided kayak adventure. After a brief safety training, get into your two-person kayak and follow your expert guide through medium-intensity, rushing river rapids as you make your way to the Caribbean Sea.

As you paddle down the splashing rapids, admire the lush Jamaican scenery and spot wildlife along the way. Halfway through your trip down the river, you’ll have the chance to take a break and relax by the river, swim in the warm water, and try out the nearby rope swing.

Then, hop back in your kayak and continue farther downstream toward the Caribbean Sea. Paddle over to the shores of a private beach and spend time lounging in the sun or swimming in the pristine sea before enjoying a relaxing drive back to the Montego Bay port.

We will ensure your timely return to the Montego Bay port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

An excellent excursion. Instead of the 2 man kayak, we choose 2 individual tubes and went down River Bengal which is a 1.5 hour drive from Montego Bay. We were accompanied by a local who guided our tubes along the river. Stopped along the way and took a rope jump into the river. Our minivan driver was very nice and knowledgeable and provided highlights along the way.

Driver and guides were fun,safe,and great.It's an hour drive each way from Montego Bay to Rio Bueno.You got to see some of the landscape of Jamaica,not so much of Montego Bay itself,this is a full day excursion.Kayaking was beginner level,don't expect huge thrills.Beautiful river,highly recommended!

4 star rating: Recommended February 2013

Kayaking was absolutely awesome. Jumping from the platform is tricky but definitely fun! Guys are pleasant and funny. Go out of their way to help you out. Locals can get a bit pushy about asking for money or buying their products but, hey...it is Jamaica Mon. Overall good excursion

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2015

The guides where superb made the trip however the walk up the gorge was probably better than the kayaking which was actual inflatable rafting which could have lasted longer . We went on this tour on a shore excursion and as we docked in Montego Bay there was nothing immediately where you dock to go so a planned excursion is the thing to do

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2013

The rafting was fun and easy enough for anyone who can sit in a kayak. The pickup at the ship was a nightmare. Could not find the tour operator. Had 4 different Jamaicans call on their cells phones, no answer, finally someone got another number and reached someone who picked us up 2 hrs late
