Your transportation will pick you up right outside the cruise pier terminal where your friendly guide will greet you and get your excursion started. As you are traveling through the countryside your certified guide will be giving you information and entertaining stories about the area. When you reach the rafting base, you will get on board your 30ft. bamboo raft and meet your Jamaican captain who will pole the raft down the river Huck Finn style. The rafting trip down this 3-mile stretch of the well-known Martha Brae is one of the most exhilarating in Jamaica. The journey takes about 90 minutes. The upper reaches tumble at a good pace before slowing farther down river where you stop at "Tarzan's Corner" for a swing and a swim in a calm pool.
Each raft only holds 2 passengers so overcrowding is never an issue. Bring your camera as the Great River has lots to see and photograph as you pass through the rainforest.
You will see the highlights and sights of Montego Bay. After the relaxation of the Martha Brae river, reboard your bus for the short ride back to the pier. Drive up to the High Road for spectacular views of the ocean and the International Airport. Then, travel through Sam Sharpe Square, the town's center which is named after one of the National Heroes, Samuel Sharpe. The history he created is interesting and filled with bravery and courage. Your tour guide will tell you all about it and all the other interesting features that make this tour educational and interesting. Then, continue your journey on the Howard Cooke Highway.
The transportation will take you back to the Montego Bay cruise ship terminal at the end of this Bamboo Rafting and Sightseeing Cruise Excursion from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
This excursion was okay but too slow for me. I talked to a couple of other people our age that went and they had a good time. It was nice but I would not do it again.

good, slow tour
Do not pick this if you want wild drinking games...this excursion is slow paced and we loved it. The first portion was a bamboo raft ride down a slow moving river. There are 2 people to a raft and a guide uses a long pole to push the raft. Our guide gave us a lot of information and showed us many things along the way. Good tour to see the area. The second portion was sightseeing thorough the city. This is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the scenes.
