It's a lovely spot, but not very big, the rafting session is short and not very exciting. There isn't much to see, so pass this one up for better options around the island.

Rafting down the Rio Grande is a must do activity when in Port Antonio. $90 USD for two people, its about a 2 hour trek down in absolutely serenity. There is a spot to stop for lunch - Belindas which is highly, highly recommended.
