You can’t visit Jamaica and not participate in any water activities. As “the land of wood and water”, the water aspect is necessary for a full Jamaican experience. Going to the beach is a common choice, but did you know rivers offer just as much even more excitement? River tubing in Jamaica has grown in popularity and is a water activity worth trying.

Your next question is probably, “Where do you go for this tubing experience”? So, here are the top recommendations in Jamaica for river tubing.

Island Routes

Island Routes specialises in luxury Caribbean adventure tours, providing a premium experience for travellers seeking exclusivity and comfort. Enjoy tubing at the renowned Old Spanish Bridge, a national icon from the 17th century, and let the river carry you away.

Savour the rushing river's turns and turns as you go by mini-rapids, limestone riverbeds, an old coconut plantation, and bamboo that arches! Costing starts at around $99 and the tour is usually around 2 hours.

River Rapids Jamaica

With a strong commitment to enjoyment, security, and customer service, River Rapids offers one of the greatest river tours.

On the Rio Bueno River, in a mountain valley on the north coast, you’ll find the River Rapids Jamaica. They provide many distinctive and thrilling activities, including river tubing.

The Jungle River tubing excursion begins with a scenic drive on the North Coast to the Rio Bueno River. Upon arrival, a friendly tour guide helps with check-in and goes through the safety protocols, including putting on safety gear.

From here, your guided jungle trail begins, with a knowledgeable tour guide explaining Jamaica’s history and various plants and animal species found along the river. After a 7-minute walk, the tour guide leads the tube ride down the river, discovering tropical scenery and a range of rapids for adventure. Pricing starts at $60 for adults and $40 for children with the tour lasting for 2 hours.

I’m sure we convinced you to visit River Rapids, but, if you are worried about how far it is, if you are staying in Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay, Falmouth, and Montego Bay you are close by.

White River is one of the major destinations for river activities in Jamaica. Bamboo rafting, river tubing and even kayaking are the more popular activities. Once you get to White River, you will usually find independent tour guides willing to take you river tubing for a small fee.
