Package Description

    Your transportation will pick you up right outside the cruise pier terminal where your friendly guide will greet you and get your excursion started. As you are traveling through the countryside your certified guide will be giving you information and entertaining stories about the area. When you reach the rafting base, you will get on board your 30ft. bamboo raft and meet your Jamaican captain who will pole the raft down the river Huckleberry Finn style. The rafting trip down this 3-mile stretch of the well-known Martha Brae is one of the most exhilarating in Jamaica. The journey takes about 90 minutes. The upper reaches tumble at a good pace before slowing farther down river where you stop at "Tarzan's Corner" for a swing and a swim in a calm pool.

Accounts of her enduring presence have been featured on the TV programs “Ghost Hunters International” and World's Scariest Places. Departing the Rose Hall Great House, a stop will be made at the Shoppes at Rose Hall where local craft and duty-free items are sol
