It was beautiful, and I'm amazed with the experience these people have rafting. They know every corner. The people that work there will answer questions and are very kind, they show you their art work too.

We were offered a free rum cocktail when we arrived. Entertainment by a old man playing his guitar. Places to buy clothing. Informative garden section. We had the lovely Clive has our guide. This was so beautifully romantic, go with your other half and enjoy the view and peacefulness of Jamaica.

A bamboo for two. Suggest you bring an exta cushion or pillow or towel in case you have a bad back like me. Now health issues aside it was amazing. Our rafter mark took excellent care of us.

A very leisurely day on the river, relaxing on a sturdy raft (far comfier than they look) !! Pilot was knowledgeable and friendly and went the extra mile to make our trip enjoyable. Length of the time on the river is only 1 hour which is slightly misleading in the brochures/as advertised. Would recommend to upwardly mobile and families, couples... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week trip to Rose Hall. We made it a point to do a trip down the Martha Brae. Although we have done this same raft trip in the past, we found it so relaxing, we wanted to try it again. You are placed on a wooden raft, just 2 people plus... More

Enjoyed this trip. It was quite romantic for couples and relaxing on a 30ft raft cruising down the Martha Brae.

Me and my wife booked this excursion before arriving in Jamaica as we had heard/read some great things about the trip. The ride down the river and the scenery is really nice but the lack of engagement from our Captain left us wanting. He didn't really make any effort to engage with us and spent more time talking/shouting to other... More

The experience was certainly a true jamaican experience. It was very good. A great way to have a laid back romantic day. Loved the welcome drink. Bamboo ride is the way to go

A very relaxing way to see more of the Jamaican country. Floated down the river on a bamboo raft. Had a very friendly, informative raft captain. There are opportunities to stop along the way and purchase souvenirs although we opted not to stop. Before the raft ride, there is a chance to see a local herb garden, however there was... More
