White Water Tubing
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. 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.
