Another favorite way to spend a morning or afternoon in the Ocho Rios region is inside large tubes, floating down the mountainous White River. High in the hills above Ocho Rios, the water is cool and is as clear as gin. Guides sing Bob Marley songs as you flow with the slow-moving current. Listen to the high-pitched call of the yellow banana quit bird, and peer out at the green mosaic of ferns, banana trees and thickets of bamboo that climb the banks of this sinuous waterway like ivy climbs a wall. The River Tubing Safari is one of the many adventures offered by Chukka Caribbean Adventures, a reputable Jamaican outfitter.
