My husband and i took the Martha Brae raft trip just in February. It was an excursion we booked from our cruise on Holland America. The trip was beautiful, serene and relaxing. My husband even took a part of the time poling the raft himself while James (the poler) sat and carved his walabash. I was mildly disappointed in the number of jamacians selling trinkets, beverages, etc. around every 200 yards, however it would not deter me from recommending this excursion. Do allow the extra $10.00 to purchase the snapshot, in addition to the tips. We had lots of fun!.
