Tour Details

After meeting your driver, set off with your small group for the scenic drive along the coast to the river, approximately 60 minutes away. Your adventure begins with a short walk through the rain forest to meet your guide and 2 person kayaks at the starting point.

After some instructions from your guide, you and your co-paddler board your kayak and enter the fast flowing water. The swift currents carry your kayak downstream, challenging you and your partner to paddle confidently through various areas of exciting white water rapids and picturesque river pools. You will use teamwork to paddle through the twists and turns of rushing white-water rapids. The river rapids are rated class 1 and class 2 (easy to moderate) and the river flow is rated class 3 (swift moving water). Recent weather conditions can effect the river flow and level. Average time on the river is 90 minutes.

The river currents carry your kayak over one final cascade as you pass under an old colonial stone bridge and head towards the Caribbean Sea where you will paddle your kayak to a private beach. Here you will have approximately 30 minutes free time to swim, sun or purchase a refreshment from the beach bar.

Returning to the Montego Bay area, you will make a stop for approximately 40 minutes at the Shoppes at Rose Hall, where you can shop or relax with a cup of Blue Mountain coffee. You will then have a driving orientation along the "hip strip" of Montego Bay which is the most popular area with visitors.

Please note: Tour pickup times begin approximately one hour PRIOR to the tour departure time listed. Full details will be outlined in your electronic ticket.
