After leaving the port you will be taken on a short drive through the historic town of Falmouth then unto your White Water adventure
Your adventure begins as you are greeted by one
of your river guides upon arrival. Your tour
guide directs you to the registration office
for check in and mandatory signing of a
waiver form. After signing the waiver form,
you will be given a helmet and led outside
to be fitted with your life jacket and
propulsion gloves. You receive some final
safety instructions from your tour guide and
then follow him across the IRIE Bridge and
into the rainforest. Your 10 minute walk
along the jungle path leads you to the
launching point of your river adventure.
Now it's time to jump into the cool water
and begin your exciting journey downstream!
You tube over various areas of splashing
rapids as you paddle your way through the
many twists and turns of the river.
Halfway through your tour, you will stop for
some chill time under the bamboo tree, where
you can swim and try out the rope swing.
After some time at the swimming area, you
jump back into your tube and make your way
through some more fun filled rapids. (The
stop will depend on the condition of the
river, if the river is too high there will
be no stop).
As you pass under the old stone bridge, the
river currents carry you on a relaxing ride
towards the Caribbean Sea. Once you reach
the river delta, paddle over some small
waves that will carry you to the sandy
shores of Bengal Bay. You walk along the
shore for about 5 minutes before arriving at
Bengal Beach for some time to relax, swim in
the sea, view some amazing photographs of
your tour which are available for purchase.
Before returning to your ship we stop at Columbus open air Museum where there is
a Jerk Center Restaurant where you can purchase some local authentic Jamaican food.
