Our family had a great time. Our group was just our family of 5. The guide was great in helping us get used to how to paddle. We all did the single kayaks. It was a great adventure for us. Highly recommend even if you have never kayaked.

We loved this tour! The guides were great and very informative, friendly and fun. The river was scenic and a nice ride. A bonus was getting to swim and climb in and around some small waterfalls. The tour was not crowded like others. Be sure to get some Jerk Chicken at the end. It was delicious


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!

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

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
