Venture to one of the most picturesque places in Jamaica, the Land of Wood and Water, for a uniquely Jamaican experience.

A short drive takes you through the town of Falmouth to see St Peter’s Anglican Church -- one of the oldest and largest Anglican churches in Jamaica. The supporting columns are made of solid mahogany and the floor includes crosses inlaid with mahoe and mahogany.

In the rural village of Martha Brae, stroll through Miss Martha’s Herb Garden -- a presentation of Jamaica’s herbs, famous for their medicinal and healing properties.

Next up, you’re on a bamboo river raft built for two, gliding slowly down a river that meanders gently through whispering groves of bamboo and ferns. As your raft travels past shaded banks and through dappled sunlight, hear the story of the Matibereon.

Float along in a relaxing in an atmosphere of tranquility over the three-mile journey before arriving at the Rafter’s Rest, where the coach awaits for the return trip to Falmouth.

Notes:

Each raft seats two people and a raft captain, with a low seatback and minimal seat cushioning. Restrooms are available at the rafters' village. There may be a short wait as you board your raft. Maximum weight is 250 lbs per person. Minimum age is 3 years.
