What You Can Expect

River Boarding on the Rio Bueno in Jamaica

River Boarding on the Rio Bueno in Jamaica

Following pickup from your hotel, travel to the Rio Bueno, one of Jamaica's scenic rivers. Listen to a short safety briefing while you receive your equipment, including your river board, a lifejacket, a helmet and fins.

Take a short trek through the jungle to the edge of the Rio Bueno, the launching point for your adventure. Hop on your river board, lying on your stomach and kicking your fins behind you to steer,  and head downstream. Follow your guide as you steer with your hands and legs over the small and medium-intensity white-water rapids.

Ride your board through the river's twists, turns and rapids. Pause for a break under a stand of bamboo trees, relax on the river bed and try out the rope swing. Jump back on your river board and run some more small rapids before being whisked under an old stone bridge.

At the river delta, kick your fins to make it over the last small rapids and land at Bengal Bay's white sand shores. After a day of adrenaline-filled adventure, relax on the bay's sandy beach and bask in the tropical sun or take the opportunity to do some more swimming.

When your 3.5-hour adventure has come to a close, enjoy transportation back to your hotel.

Please note: this tour is unable to accommodate passengers from Royal Caribbean Cruises.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

This was a great trip - we had to go off the beaten path to get to the part of the river where the tour started and it was great to see the "real" part of Jamaica, not just the resort. The tour itself was a lot of fun and our tour guide was great!!!

4 star rating: Recommended August 2012

Great tour guide! Reasonable price. Not much to the "rapids" so as long as you don't have "whitewater" expectations you will have a great time on this excursion.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2014

We weren't picked up for our tour- they either didn't check or forgot to pick us up. We had to reschedule for a later date, at least we had the day free to reschedule. It was fun when we did it but just frustrated we had to change our travel plans to accommodate this tour when we are the ones who should be taken care of.
