Martha Brae River Rafting


For centuries, sugar and other crops traveled by water in Jamaica. Today, visitors to Falmouth can head a few miles up the Martha Brae River for a relaxing bamboo rafting and nature tour along a stretch of calm waters. Two passengers share a raft with their punter in front, who shares folktales and describes the area’s flora and fauna. As the raft floats under old stone bridges and past the ruins of stone mills, egrets fish along the river’s lush shaded banks, watching visitors pass by.
