This was more fun than a barrel of monkeys. You are dating yourself if you remember that. I booked onboard our ship in order to make sure to get a spot. The road in was quite rough; but the beautiful scenery more than made up for the bumps. The tour was well organized and provided a fun experience with minimal risk. The team were stationed in the water at locations where you might get hung up to push you back into the main waterway. This was a first class excursion from start to finish.
Don't miss it!

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 inner tubes. The staff were helpful and very well organized. They also took very good care of all tubers to make sure we didn't get stuck or left behind. If you can climb down to a small beach and plop your bottom into a deluxe inner tube, you can enjoy this tour through lush jungle on very fresh, clean water. A good time was had by all and afterwards, everyone enjoyed a complimentary rum punch. Go for it! You'll be glad you did.

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 a helmet, and a quick "here's how to sit" and "keep your bum up" we set off. After the first solid bum bump, you learned to raise your rear. For some reason, perhaps overinflated tube, my wife shot ahead of everyone, sometimes travelling backwards, sometimes sideways, sometimes forward. I couldn't catch up being kept amidst the larger group. In some rapids, she reached the group ahead of us heading straight for two large men temporarily stranded on a large boulder. She smashed into the boulder in the middle, was turned over, and banged against the rock under the water, severely hitting forearm, hip and several other places. The men were bumped free and she was stranded by the rock. I was far behind and unaware of her situation. A guide helped her to shore and encouraged her to resume the trip, but that was enough for her. I motored by not knowing of her circumstances, and not farther on, was flipped over sideways in a rapid where I tried to both keep my raft and find a foothold on the slippery rocks. The current dragged me further, scrapping my leg. I finally found a foothold between two underwater rocks in the rapids, but then two rafts descended on me and I was again bouncing down the rapids. I was swept into a pool, paddled to shore, and quite exhausted, climbed onto my raft. The second half of the route was slightly quieter, but towards the end had a narrow, fast rapid, more of a chute, with a huge boulder on the right which you just shot by.
My wife was taken to the end meeting point and had a discussion whee she learned that many tubers suffer broken bones. She did have 5 nasty bruises and came close to severely damaging her forearm.
I should add we are 50-60, sports active and not overweight.
So, if you're determined to do this, some recommendations:
- controlling the raft is challenging at best, so no small children even if they swim, and senior citizens should beware
- try paddling hard so as to keep facing downstream to see what's ahead
- gauge the current and paddle to keep yourself away from rocks
- stay away from a large group as you could be bumped into a difficult spot
- good luck

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. There were a few rapids to spice things up, but the most fun was heading out a short distance through the breakers into the sea.
A well organised and safe excursion. Great fun. Yes, you WILL get wet!

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 what it was. We were only on the water for about 2 hours, and easily could have gone another 2 hours. It's very relaxing and fun. In some areas the guides would literally push us through the river because the water was so low. It was a lot of fun though. If you're looking for a cool and relaxing day, this is a good trip to choose.

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 at all levels of fitness. Staff assisted anyone with the least bit of trouble maintaining a comfortable ride down the scenic river, with its Level 1-2 "rapids" and I think injury, with the exception of sunburn, would be very unlikely ! Everyone in our group would have loved a more extended ride . Rum Punch or guava juice refreshment was offered to us at a restaurant a short drive from our disembarkation point; I'm sure it is available to the general public also.

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. A few bumps along the way (always try to remember to lift your bum up). Beautiful scenery, a very enjoyable ride. Everyone wanted to go back to the beginning and do it again. Nobody takes pictures then tries to sell them to you. Waterproof camera would work, although there is a good chance it could get damaged on rocks. I would definitely do this one again.
