ShoreTrips says...

This is the perfect excursion for thrill seekers who want to experience Rio Bueno's many moods at their own pace.

We'll meet you at the cruise ship pier and set off en route to one of Jamaica's famous rivers, where you'll have a blast navigating the cool waters of the river on its journey to the Caribbean Sea!

Your tour begins as you venture on a short walking path that runs along the river bank, leading you to an open area where you'll find your kayak waiting.

After some safety lessons from your tour guide and a quick gear check, you'll launch your kayak into the river and immediately feel the intensity of the rushing water.

The swift currents carry your kayak downstream, challenging you and your partner to paddle confidently through various areas of exciting whitewater rapids and picturesque river pools.

As you pass under the old stone bridge, the currents begin to fade and your kayak takes a calm ride into the Caribbean Sea.

Once at sea, you'll paddle at your own pace along the coastline until you arrive at our private beach for a cool drink, some time to relax, and, if you wish, a dip in the warm Caribbean waters.

Finish your day at Columbus Park, a beautiful location overlooking the Caribbean Sea, which consists of ruins of buildings from the early Spanish colonial period and interesting artifacts from early Jamaican life. It is home to some of the best views of the island.
