Martha Brae River, A1 Highway, Falmouth

The Basics

White-water enthusiasts can leave their need for speed behind—rafting tours on the Martha Brae River float along on island time. Float down river on a traditional bamboo raft and admire the surrounding wildlife, as a raft captain paddles and steers. Or combine a rafting trip with visits to the Luminous Lagoon—flush with bioluminescent phytoplankton—or the climbing course and natural water slide at Dunn’s River Falls. Most guided tours include refreshments, lunch, and round-trip transportation.

Relaxing and Romantic
Driver was so professional and efficient. He is also a comedian so please don’t be uptight, it’s Jamaica Mon!!! We did get picked up in a van with other couples so if you don’t like that then get a private car. We happened to like the social chatting. The ride was romantic perfect for a proposal. Bring cash as they don’t take credit card and I wanted to buy some stuff because they had so many good things and good available for purchase.

Amazing amazing amazing!!!!! Lennon our driver was so funny & gave us great information on the way to the river. Everyone at the river , from the bar tender to our captain Lenford who was just a pleasure. He sang Bob Marley with us, shared stories and helped us get plenty of pictures. They even have people on the banks of the river selling rum punch and mangos! If we could go every day we were here, we would. A wonderful experience!

Private Roundtrip Transportation to Martha Brae Rafting
We had an excellent trip with our guide Jogotto and RPT Tours. The tour was professional and the trip to Martha Brae was a breeze with our guide’s quick sense of humour and friendliness. The rafting itself is tranquil and our guide Captain Johnson was experienced and extremely accomodating - an excellent river guide. Overall a great experience and well worth doing.

Martha Brae River Rafting Private Tour
Pro Tip: Schedule for the am. We got there at about 10am. We literally had the ENTIRE RIVER to ourselves. We got Great Pictures, no other rafts in the background, and it made for a relaxing memorable experience. Our Driver Kevin, went above and beyond to insure our trip was great. If you book request Kevin. Great conversation, very knowledgeable, and very tentative to our needs. Thanks again.

Private Shuttle Transport to Martha Brae River Rafting from Montego Bay
Patrick arrived early for the pickup to make sure we would be able to complete the excursion before it rained. Worked out perfect. After he dropped us off, the rain started 30 mins later. Rafting very nice and relaxing to hear all the nature and have a great captain of the raft.

When to Get There

Jamaica’s year-round warm temperatures make it easy to plan a trip during any season, with the exception of May, October, and November, which bring rain and hurricanes. Arrive early to enjoy the waters to yourself or visit in the afternoon if you hope to combine a river raft experience with the bioluminescent lagoon.
