Please arrive 15 minutes before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

We pickup from most Runaway Bay Hotels. You must contact us at the information provided at least 24 hours prior to the time of pickup to reconfirm your booking and to arrange a central pickup point if you are staying at other accommodations.
Be ready for adventure in the lobby of your Runaway Bay hotel. Climb into a private vehicle with your party and travel to the Rio Bueno River, traveling along the scenic north coast. 

Once you arrive, get an orientation from the staff and get fitted for safety gear, then head over the Irie Bridge and along the jungle trail to the launch point for your water activities. 

Choose two from the following four activities:

White River Boarding (minimum age 12 years; maximum weight 280lbs) Surf down Class II rapids, steering with your arms and legs on a board similar to a boogie board. Stop on the beach for a break and a turn on the rope swing. 

River Kayaking (minimum age 12; maximum weight 400lbs per kayak) With a partner, paddle downstream through class II rapids and through scenic natural pools. Pass under a stone bridge where the river flows into the Caribbean Sea. 

River Rafting (minimum age 5 years; maximum weight 280lbs) Along with a group of 4 to 6 passengers, navigate through class I and class II rapids, with your guide steering the whole time. Stop to swim and try out the rope swing. 

River Tubing (minimum age 8 years; maximum weight 260 pounds) The relaxing currents carry you through the rainforest; you can sit back and relax while admiring the scenery. Shoot a few rapids (class II) and stop at a beach to swim and take a turn on the rope swing. 

When you've finished up your water activities, take a boat ride into the Caribbean Sea, to Bengal Beach for lunch (own expense) and some beach time. Conclude your time at the beach and then head back to Runaway Bay to your hotel for drop-off.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Runaway Bay
This tour takes you through one of the most popular towns on the Island. Runaway Bay is naturally beautiful and is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica. It sits between the beautiful, crisp coastline to one side and the lush green mountains to the other. There is much debate as to how the town of Runaway Bay got its name. some people believe it got the name because that is where the last batch of Spanish soldiers ran away from when they were retreating from the attacking British Troops lead by Governor Ysassi right after the 1655 British invasion of Jamaica, while other argue that it was the point from which the Slaves from inland plantations used as an escape route to runaway to Cuba. Get your cameras ready to go as you make your way through this area.
Stop At:  
Columbus Park
The town of Discovery Bay is where you will find Columbus Park. It was originally named Puerto Seco “Dry Harbour” by Christopher Columbus in 1494 when he and his men landed on the Island. It is said that could not find fresh water to drink. They later found fresh water in another area about 5 miles west of the town. The water was so good that they named the location where it was found Rio Bueno (“Good River”). However, the town of Puerto Seco was later renamed in 1947 to Discovery Bay because Discovery Bay is where the Spanish, lead by Christopher Columbus landed when they invaded the Island on May 4, 1494. There is a park with several old relics and artifacts on display. There will be a brief stop to take photos and capture the rich history of this historic town.

Literally private. Just me, my husband and the guide. We got picked up from our hotel at 9 am and returned at 1115. The driver and guide were terrific but it's seems a lot of money for a 2 hour adventure.
