In 1494, when the Spaniards discovered Jamaica, they named the village Ocho Rios, after the wondrous eight rivers they saw here. Explore one of those eight rivers today -- the beautiful White River.

Take a step back in time when your adventure begins at the 17th-century landmark Spanish Bridge. This is a sight you can only see on your river tubing expedition.

Listen to a safety briefing from experienced guides, who will also outfit you with safety equipment for the journey ahead.

This three-mile tube ride down the White River not only imparts the rich history of Jamaica, but also shows off the beauty of the landscape as you pass through coconut plantations, bamboo groves and along riverbanks filled with indigenous flora and fauna.

The real adventure lies in the river’s many moods, which will bring you to challenging rapids and enchanting lagoons.

The ride takes you between two of the island’s most scenic parishes and breathtaking views and vistas.

The architecture at the landing facility emulates a traditional Jamaican village, so be sure to stop by the Parrot Bar and refresh yourself with a cool drink (at your own expense) or browse in the Valley Trader gift shop.
