Dominica Shore Excursion: River Tubing Safari

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After your cruise ship dock's at Dominica's port, board your vehicle for the 30-minute ride through the lush island's interior to the launch site for your river tubing adventure.

    Listen to a short safety briefing and receive your paddle, life jacket and modified inner tube. Launch your tube and follow your guide down the river, spinning gently in the current. Stop along the way to swim in the refreshing water before continuing on your adventure.

    Ask your expert guide any questions on the way, including paddling pointers and anything you want to know about the local flora and fauna. Your safety and comfort is their top priority.

    When you float down to the Hillsborough Reception Center, you'll pull your tube onto the banks and enjoy some rum punch and fresh local fruit.

    When your tubing safari is over, enjoy transportation back to the Dominica cruise port in plenty of time to catch your departing ship.

    Wacky Roller Guides were awesome! Very friendly and helpful. I can say that meeting up at the port was a bit confusing and we were packed into a caravan. The river water was a bit too shallow to be tubing but we enjoyed our surroundings...More

    Not very deep - I think they say you must be able to swim to cover their backs. They did not test us! If you are frightened of water probably best to avoid but generally all seems very safe

    You should definitely know how to swim. There are deep parts and in the middle they stop specifically to swim. I don't recommend children on this excursion. Also, you are fitted with a life vest, but should be able to at... More

    At least an hour maybe a bit more. It was 11 miles downstream. We also stopped for about 15-20 minutes to swim and mingle.
