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.

Martha Brae River Rafting Private Tour
By booking with this website, it was convenient for the most part. It was fixed price but our driver seemed to be agitated with everyone after smoking weed on the job. I would have given 5 star to everyone but chose 4 due to the fact the driver smokes and drive.

Martha Brae Rafting and Luminous Lagoon from Montego Bay and Falmouth
We had a wonderful ride down the Martha Brae, they were running a little behind and we had to wait. But then we got a wonderfully talented Captain, Reynoldo. He was very knowledgeable, funny and great to listen to. He even reversed the raft to pick a flower I admired. Highly recommended tour. THANK YOU!

So so great. Our tour guide Ryan was amazing. He gave us some info about the history of Montego Bay as well as the other cities in the St. James parish. The rafting itself was 10/10. Our rafting guide (I wish I recalled his name) was super fun. He gave us so much information about the importance of the river, the way different trees and plants grow and a bit of info on rafting itself. Amazing 10/10

Rafting in Martha Brae River, Jamaica
Loved this experience! The driver was awesome and gave me lots of information about the area, how they make the rafts and the history of the river . The gentleman taking me on the raft was so nice and generous, and made sure I enjoyed myself throughout the experience. Lots of small shops to visit and refreshing drinks to purchase during the ride down as well. The day was beautiful and the ride was super relaxing. Thanks sunset kisses for providing an awesome tour for this solo traveler!

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.
