Nature and Fun in Ocho Rios’ White River
A land of visual splendor, adventure and inspiration, Jamaica’s tropical rainforests, majestic mountain ranges, and crystal clear waters attract travelers looking to get close to nature with their own unique siren song – one that sounds more like “yeah mon” or “wah gwan” than a melody.
That explains why the ecotourism industry is booming with everything from waterfalls to excitement-filled adventures in no short supply. Much of that activity is centered in and around Ocho Rios and in particular a tour down Jamaica’s most mesmerizing river, the White River, which provides a taste of all the best of the land of wood and water.
When it comes to combining an appreciation of nature with unabated fun, it will be hard to match the White River Tubing Safari. The expedition literally sweeps you right off your feet and onto an inner tube giving you an entirely new level of up close and personal with the country’s natural beauty, as well as historic landmarks.
Ecotourism in Jamaica is a thrilling ride, but the White River Tubing Safari will be your most unforgettable adventure yet.
Spanish Bridge, Plantation Cruise, and Natural Beauty
The tour starts at the historic Spanish Bridge, built in the 1600s before the Spanish lost Jamaica to the English. Floating along the river, you will pass over limestone beds, alongside an old plantation, and underneath arching bamboo and nature's authentic beauty.
Kick off the tour with an unrivaled sense of serenity as you ease along the river at a slow pace, then as you enter the exhilarating rapids, the adrenaline and heartbeat go up a notch.
Family Fun with Experienced Guides
Native guides familiar with all the wonders of the river provide in-depth information about the fauna and history of Jamaica along the way.
Although you will have your own tube, the White River Tubing Adventure is a memorable experience for the entire family, kids and grandparents included. If you love being in the water and amongst nature, you will fall even more in love with Jamaica on great tour.
