Blue Hole Adventure with Lunch
Blue Hole Adventure with Lunch
Get ready for your incredible Jamaican adventure when make your way to the world-famous Blue Hole in Ocho Rios.
After debarking your ship, you will enter the historic port of Falmouth and meet your friendly driver who will be waiting for you inside the port parking area. Climb in to your comfortable, air-conditioned transportation and start your scenic drive along the coastline for approximately 50 minutes to the town of Ocho Rios.
Your journey through the charming old town of Ocho Rios will last approximately 15 minutes as you begin making your way to the Blue Hole, nestled halfway up the mountain side along the banks of the White River. At the Blue Hole you will be greeted by one of the many tour guides who will assist you through a variety of activities. This breathtaking site is something only Mother Nature could have made, under the canopy of the forest the air is cool and clean as it rises from the water around you. Climb the waterfalls, take a plunge into the amazing turquoise waters that give this famous attraction its name, try out the Tarzan swing if you are brave enough, or just chill out in the cool water and explore the caves underneath the waterfall. There are so many activities to choose from, there will be something for everyone, guaranteed. You will quickly realize why the Blue Hole has quickly become the most popular natural attraction in Jamaica in only a few short years.
After approximately 90 minutes at the Blue Hole it will then be time to meet up with your driver once again and make your way back to the direction of Falmouth along the North Coast highway. Your excursion wouldn’t be a true Jamaican experience without sampling some authentic Jerk Chicken and rice and peas with a non-alcoholic beverage at Bengal Beach, all included in the cost of your excursion.
After lunch you have approximately 30 minutes of beach time at this location where you can take a dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Finally you will meet with your driver one last time for a short, 20-minute drive back to the Falmouth port.

The place is stunning. Definitely dont forget to take your water shoes and be very careful since it is very slippery. Lunch was ok, spicy for me since i dont like spicy food, but at least we had the opportunity to have the typical jamaican food(beef jerk with rice and salad). The only reason I did not give 5 stars for this tour it is because the tour guide at the Blue Hole was very pushy about tips. I get it we need to tip and they are very helpful, but I was going to give him $10 and he kept asking for $20. So I gave him $20.My friend ended up giving $40 because they were surrounding him and getting pushy. That made us very uncomfortable. Aside of that, everything was great. We definitely want to go back to Jamaica to spend a week at a beach resort and enjoy the beaches. Traffic is awful. Drive from the port to Blue hole is about 1:30-1:45min depending on traffic each way, but it was totally worth it. Overall, great place with very friendly people.
