The Basics

White limestone rocks along the riverbed create gentle rapids and tranquil pools for lazing about in the water. Visitors can tube or kayak down the river, or saddle a horse to ride trails that meander through tropical rain forest, passing under hanging vines and trees filled with exotic birds.

Travelers have many options to explore White River Valley as part of a half- or full-day private or group tour that may include additional adventures nearby. Starting out from Falmouth, Ocho Rios, or Montego Bay, travelers may swim in the magical Blue Hole or in the cascades of Dunns River Falls, or soak up reggae history at the Bob Marley Mausoleum. Some tours include lunch and a shopping excursion.

Fun tour. We're from Texas and tube all the time, so we thought the helmets, life jackets, and plastic bottoms on tubes were a bit much. Our guide, The Rainmaker, was entertaining. River is beautiful with slow parts and 3-4 rapids. No plantation views or cool shops like the tour says however.

Combo Blue Hole & River Tubing Tour from Ocho Rios
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and Dalton was a great tour guide. He kept the conversation flowing during the drive to our destinations and had loads of little nuggets of knowledge about the local area. Marlon was our guide at the Blue Hole and he took loads of great pictures and videos of us. He even managed to retrieve my iWatch after it fell off during one of the jumps. Dwight was our guide for the tubing and I highly recommend that you request him.
Great experience

Blue Hole and River Tubing from Montego Bay
Our day trip was smooth from start to finish. Our driver came to pick us up early then as we drive from Montego Bay to Blue Hole he shared a lot information about the area we drive through. Blue Hole had 4 waterfalls/waterholes to jump into and our tour guide there took amazing photos and videos on my phone! River tubing was a short drive away and beautiful, scenic experience! Loves the stop mid river to get snacks/drinks and souvenirs. Everyone was friendly and approachable!
Would do it again

Combo Blue Hole & River Tubing Tour from Ocho Rios
The whole experience was great! Sean was on time, he was patient and kind. The tour guides at the blue hole were also respectful and nice. We felt safe with them as four young women and would definitely come back.
A wonderful experience!

Private River Tubing Adventure in White River from Ocho Rios
My most memorable part of this excursion was going through the rapids. My 17 and 22 year old sons enjoyed the break halfway down the stream, where they enjoyed the swing on the rope. I wish it was longer and if they were more rapids to enjoy. It was a great excursion nonetheless.

Horseback Riding & Swim, Blue Hole, Secret Falls and River Tubing & Rafting Tour
The water tubing was the most fun we had. The men at that company were awesome. The blue hold and secret falls was a close second, just a lot of walking to get to the falls. The young men who were out tour guides/lifeguards were hilarious, even though our group was complaining about the hike to the falls (lol we’re all out of shape) they made it so much fun. The horseback riding was cool, the local company we used made sure everybody was comfortable and had a good time. The rafting was a complete waste of time. We literally went around a corner and had to turn back around. Our drivers were also very cool and even though we had a mishap with a missing phone they were trying everything they can to make sure we were taken care of. Overall I would definitely recommended
Great time very safe

A Bit of Colonial History

Keep your eyes peeled for the historic Spanish Bridge, which dates back to the 1600s and is located at the top of the river. A gentle green slope allows you to climb out of your tube or kayak and up to the top of the low-lying bridge where you can leap into the crystal-clear water below.
