The Basics

White-water enthusiasts can leave their need for speed behind—rafting tours on the Martha Brae River float along on island time. Float down river on a traditional bamboo raft and admire the surrounding wildlife, as a raft captain paddles and steers. Or combine a rafting trip with visits to the Luminous Lagoon—flush with bioluminescent phytoplankton—or the climbing course and natural water slide at Dunn’s River Falls. Most guided tours include refreshments, lunch, and round-trip transportation.

The Martha Brae River Bamboo Rafting definitely lived up to the hype! It was definitely worth it!! If you are coming to Jamaica this is a must! Leon will be your tour guide/transportation guy if you purchase this excursion. He is awesome and made our experience GREAT! He is very personable and knowledgeable of Jamaica.

Martha Brae river tour was absolutely amazing! Mr. Johnson was super nice and made sure we had a very relaxing time! I'd 100% recommend this tour for anyone visiting Jamaica! My wife and I got to taste all of the amazing Jamaican traditional fruits and snacks. All of the people are so very nice and don't pressure u to purchase things that you don't want. This tour will be a part of every trip I make here!

Private Dunn's River Falls and Martha Brae River Rafting w/ Entrance & Lunch
We booked this tour when we stayed in Negril. The drive was about 3 hours. We just wanted to make the trip to the other side of the island once, so this was the perfect tour to make most of our trip! It was a private tour, which was great because the timing depended on us and not others. Our driver was pleasant.

This excursion is an absolute must! Our guide Adrian was so sweet and took the time to show us history along the way to both attractions. He even went out of his way to bring us to an affordable souvenir shop at the end of our trip. Thank you Adrian for everything!

When to Get There

Jamaica’s year-round warm temperatures make it easy to plan a trip during any season, with the exception of May, October, and November, which bring rain and hurricanes. Arrive early to enjoy the waters to yourself or visit in the afternoon if you hope to combine a river raft experience with the bioluminescent lagoon.
