River Tubing Safari
In 1494, when the Spanish discovered Jamaica, they named the village Ocho Rios, after the wondrous “Eight Rivers” they saw here. Come and explore one of those eight rivers that the Spanish found, the amazing, untouched White River. Take a step back in time when your adventure begins at the 17th century landmark, “Spanish Bridge”. This is a site you can only see on your river tubing expedition. As you get ready to journey down the cool water of the white river, which gained its name from the pristine clarity of its water, you will receive a safety briefing from our experienced guides, who will also outfit you with all of your safety equipment for your journey ahead. This three mile ride down the White River, not only gives you the rich history of Jamaica, it shows you the beauty of the land as you pass by coconut plantations, bamboo groves and along river banks filled with indigenous flora and fauna. The real adventure lies in the white river as you enjoy her many moods, which will bring you to challenging rapids and enchanting lagoons. The breathtaking views and vistas of this SeaDream Land Adventure, which takes you between two of our island’s most scenic parishes, St. Mary and St. Ann, on what we call the inter parish express and can only be found on the River Tubing Safari Tour. As you disembark the White River, you will find yourself in one of Jamaica’s most beautiful valleys. The White River Valley property is a garden paradise with over 100 species of flowers for your viewing pleasure. The property’s facilities and buildings mirror the architecture of traditional Jamaican village, so be sure to stop by Parrot Bar and indulge in some of our traditional Jamaican Jerk cuisine, refresh yourself with a cool drink, browse the Valley Trader gift shop or just take in the sights of the real Jamaica.
