Martha Brae Rafting

I went to Martha Brae 21 years ago on my last visit to Jamaica. It hadn’t changed at all. Which was good. A lot of bamboo had been grown and felled though since then I am sure…nature’s quickest growing ‘tree’ the stuff is everywhere along the side of the river and the many colours of [...]

Capsising Kayaks

Oh what fun we had. I last kayaked at a PGL adventure course back in the UK, back in 1984. Digital camera’s didn’t exist. And of course the internet didn’t exist either. But it would seem that this childhood course had still prepared prepared me perfectly well for this assignment – and luckily i discovered [...]

Sunsets at Rick’s Cafe

Negril is perched right on the west coast of Jamaica. That’s right where the sun sets on this fair isle every night. Have a look: Now, if you’re the type (like me) that likes to sit with nature and contemplate the grandeur of the Earth, the passing of the day that has gone and the [...]

Roaring River & Cavenous Caves

Now I don’t want to be pinickety but I am going to be. Roaring river is hardly roaring. And that’s even after a few months of rain. I’d say it’s gushing laudably. The fast-paced flow spins through small bridges and mangroves, along fields and eventually down into the small colourfully-wooden-housed-village below. There was a deep [...]

Amphibious Adventures

VROOM IT UP! Yeeeha! 3 hours out to sea. Waterproof camera? Check. Life-jacket? Check. Sunglasses (for looking like Miami Vice)? Check. Safety procedure. Check? Ignition key? Check. Snorkle mask, flippers and breathing tube? WHAT?! Yes, yet again, Chukka puts the icing on the cake and adds under-water excavation to what would already be a fun-and-fuel-packed [...]

Horsing around

Now, I am allergic to horses. It might have something to do with having been kicked-across a field by a stallion at the age of four. And subsequently breaking my right arm. Or perhaps it has something to do with falling off an old nag, only to have it temporarily paralyze my left arm by [...]

iTube

Today we had a whole raft of fun down The White River. OK, in truth we neither rafted nor saw a white river. Instead we ‘tubed’ down a crisp and fresh green river, running 27 miles from the dizzy heights of the mountains and into Ocho Rios. Our tubing trip took us through 3 miles [...]
