The Martha Brae, the island’s most popular rafting destination, lies about three miles inland from Falmouth, the birthplace of one of Jamaica’s past Prime Ministers, Hugh Shearer. It’s only twenty miles from Montego Bay and forty miles from Ocho Rios to go to the attraction. “Rafter’s Village,” the embarkation location, is six acres of finely maintained lawns on a natural horseshoe island. Picnic grounds, a full-service bar, two souvenir stores, a swimming pool, and modern facilities are all part of the recreational facility. Guests can also take a stroll through “Miss Martha’s Herb Garden” before starting the tour, which features a display of Jamaican herbs known for their medicinal and healing characteristics.
A licenced dispatcher supervises the boarding of thirty-foot long bamboo rafts from a concrete pier. The raft ride lasts around an hour and takes place along a three-mile length of the lovely Martha Brae River. Guests can hear about “The Legend of Martha Brae” or go for a thrilling swim once aboard the raft.
