Your River Rafting Cruise Excursion from Falmouth begins right from the cruise pier in Falmouth where your guide and transportation are waiting for you. The drive is scenic and travel time is not long so the fun starts quickly.
When you arrive at the facilities, you will get checked in and receive a briefing from your guide. Then you will put on your safety gear and follow the guide to the river's edge and your rafts. Your group will receive the basics on paddling as a team before you get in your raft and start the thrilling ride downstream. The number of guests per raft will vary according to weight.
The staff captain will be steering the raft as you and your boat mates use teamwork to navigate down the Rio Bueno River. Laughter and excitement will pick up as the raft goes through various sections of class 1 and 2 whitewater rapids.
When you reach a calm part of the river, there is a rope swing that you and the others can enjoy. There will be a few minutes to relax before the final part of the rafting continues through a few more rapids. The currents will lead the rafts under an old stone bridge and to the opening where the river meets the Caribbean. You will go to a private beach where you will have about 45 minutes to relax, refresh with a cold drink, swim and enjoy the reggae tunes playing (time allowing).
Your transportation will take you back to your Falmouth pier.
Travel time from your pier to the site is included in overall excursion length: 20 minutes from Falmouth, 45 minutes from Montego Bay and 40 minutes from Ocho Rios each way.
Great Safe Family Fun
We went with a crew of 6 with the youngest 14. Guides were friendly and informative and funny. Falls were quaint and somewhat difficult to walk through. So wear the appropriate footwear. Flipflops were not a good choice. Everyone had fun and participated with no physical problems at all. Beach area is a private beach with local food and drink. Great recovery place under the ficus trees and sea breeze. Go. GO. GOOO.

Fun, fresh air and lots of laughs
A group of us went on a cruise and we each were assigned a port to choose an excursion. My assignment was our stop in Falmouth Jamaica. Everyone in my group said this was the best thing we did on the whole cruise. We had enough fun to keep us talking for the rest of the year. It was a blast. The river was perfect not too fast but we didn't putt along either. The guides were fun and did the steering for us. Climbing the waterfall was a bonus. We did not want all of the crowds like at Dunn's River and this was a blast. The photos turned out fantastic (too bad I can't figure out how to upload a couple to share). Great time was had by all!
