Kayak and zipline over the Jamaica's Great River during this 2-hour guided tour from Negril. With your expert adventure guide, cross the rushing river on 3 different ziplines, glide through some gentle rapids. Along the way, learn about the history and culture of the island from your guide. All zipline and kayak equipment, lunch and round-trip transportation from Negril and Montego Bay hotels is included.
What to Expect
Following pickup at your hotel in Montego Bay or Negril, board a comfortable vehicle for your trip into the hills of the Jamaican interior. 
Upon arrival at the Great River activity center, disembark and meet your adventure guides. Listen to a brief safety lecture and orientation, then get geared up for the exciting day's activities. Learn how to safely enter and exit your kayak, basic paddle strokes and steering. Note that you may also have the option of river tubing instead of kayaking.
Once you feel comfortable, launch into the Great River, which flows northwest of Montego Bay into the Caribbean. As you slice through the water, pay attention to the local wildlife and plants around you. Your guide will point out colorful bird life, fruit and tropical foliage like ginger lilies and lobster-claw heliconias. 
After some time on the river, pull up on one of the banks and stow your kayak gear. Set out on a short trek to the zipline platforms and listen to a short zipline safety briefing and orientation. Get fitted for a harness and helmet, then clip on and zip off through the jungle. During your 150-foot (46-meter) journey through the canopy, you'll land on 2 other platforms with great views.
Climb back in your kayak and drift peacefully back to the activity center, where you'll enjoy a provided lunch of traditional Jamaican food. Then enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.
