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

Enjoy a 1½-hour countryside drive along the coast to see the rural lifestyle of Jamaica.

At the Martha Brae rafting center, you will be greeted with a welcome tropical drink.

On a bamboo raft built for two, you’ll glide slowly down a river that meanders gently through whispering groves of bamboo and ferns, listening to the chatter of birds and the soft chop-chop of the raftman’s pole.

Your raft makes its way past shaded banks and dappled sunlight as the mild river breeze washes over you.

Float along the river relaxing in an atmosphere of tranquility for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes before arriving at the Rafter’s Rest, where a bus waits to return you to Ocho Rios.

Back in town, you will have some free time for shopping. Duty-free and curio shops will add a new dimension to your experience.


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. Minimum age is 3 years.
