Your Falmouth River Tubing adventure begins with a short scenic drive to the historic Rio Bueno River, discovered and named the "Good River" by Christopher Columbus and the Spanish in 1494.
Put on your safety equipment and receive safety instructions from your trained guide. Follow your guide across the swaying "Irie Bridge" for a short hike through the cool rainforest along the riverbank while observing various species of vegetation to the starting point of your Falmouth Jamaica River Tubing adventure.
Enter the refreshing waters of the Rio Bueno to begin your exciting river tubing journey downstream to the midway stop under the giant bamboo tree. Swing on the rope and swim in the clear placid river pool.
Jump back into your tube while the currents of the Rio Bueno carries you through lush tropical greenery while taking in the amazing scenery as you float to the Caribbean Sea into the sandy shores of Bengal Bay.
From there you can get pulled by motorized boat (weather permitting) or take a short walk along the shoreline as the sand hugs your feet and caresses your toes before arriving at the Bengal Beach; have a cool refreshing drink at the bamboo bar, take a swim in the warm ocean water, relax on the beach or journey on a short drive to the historic site where Christopher Columbus first landed in Discovery Bay. Tour the open air museum and enjoy authentic Jamaican style "Jerk" at Scotchies cliff side restaurant before a short but informative sightseeing drive through Historic Falmouth on your return.
Your Falmouth River Tubing tour lasts approximately 1 hour, depending on the river current and time spent at the midway stop.
