Traveled on the Oceania Line and booked this tour off the ship. First we had a tour of the island and then we stopped to hike up to view Trafalgar Falls. Next stop was the river tubing experience and it was so much fun. After sitting on a cruise ship, it was time to go down the Layou river on... More

We signed up through our cruise ship, Norwegian Pearl, and were taken on an interesting bus ride to the Layou River Gorge. There were about 50 tubers from our ship plus another group in front and one following. Our group had 5 local young men as guides who did their best to keep you off the rocks. After putting on...

Mv Ventura 6th - 20th December. Second visit to Dominica. Last time we walked through the Botanical Gardens to Mourve Bruce which was very pleasant and gave good views. This time we payed for the P&O river to sea kayaking down the Laylou River. This was with Whacky Rollers and involved kayaking down the river on 2 person sit-on kayaks.... More

It was our second time on this Majestic island and this excursion was perfect. The staff was good and sugar cane afterwards was a nice treat.

I tricked my wife into this excursion. She was nervous at first but the guide was great and she had a blast. Water level was good for tubing and the weather was perfect. Thanks for the great trip.

My mother and I chose this excursion at the last minute while on a cruise. We have done several rafting trips before and highly enjoyed them. This is not rafting, but river tubing. As long as you're able to get in and out of an inner tube, you can do this trip. The staff was exceptional. This made the trip... More

this two hours of downstream tubing was offered to us as a cruise ship excursion and well worth the $59 US$ per person we paid. The bus ride to the "embarkation" spot was scenic and, with a guide providing general information about the island, enjoyable and interesting. As expected, it was a wet passage and was easily manged by people... More

Took the Tubing excurision Jan 2013. People of all ages were on this trip. Your tube is large with handles. Helmet & life vest are worn. There were many helpers along the river to push you back into the rapids if you strayed to close to shore. The water level was low, but I heard it can get much lower.... More
