Rio Grande Rafting is one of Jamaica’s most scenic and relaxed experiences. Take a lazy stroll down the river in Portland and take your mind off the troubles of the world for a few hours.
Our Rio Grande Jamaica rafting trips allow you to leisurely cruise down the river for 2 to 3 hours taking in the lush scenery. It is fed by torrential rains flowing down from the Blue Mountains and flows from up in the foothills through lush tropical forests, beautiful valleys and towering hillsides.
Bamboo rafting originated as a means for the transportation of produce, such as bananas from the innermost parts of the island to the harbor in Port Antonio.
It was not until the iconic Hollywood movie star Errol Flynn, who had made Port Antonio his home, started rafting on the Rio Grande in Jamaica for fun that it became a recreational activity. He used to challenge guests to rafting races along the river. Rio Grande River rafting has now become one of Jamaica’s top attractions, loved by both locals and visitors.
A licensed and skilled raft captain will steer your bamboo raft made for 2 passengers downriver. You will witness some of the most breathtaking views to be seen in Jamaica. For approximately 2-3 hours you will be amazed at the natural beauty of Jamaica that you witness.

A fantastic first experience of Jamaica! The excursions were well thought out and gave a real authentic experience of the country. One of the best trips I’ve ever done, and I am so impressed with every aspect of the tours
