I suggest getting your shore excursion protection bc I didn’t get off the ship. Other people who went loved it.. not as difficult as one may say.

This day was by far our best day on our 7 day cruise. The Blue Hole was amazing, even though it down poured on us (who cares, we were going to get wet anyway!). The guides are excellent in telling you down to where exactly to step as you climb up the water falls and then....jump in! It is not for the faint at heart. You can choose to not climb or not jump, but then you loose a lot of the fun of the excursion. Lunch, then we were driven to a river where we floated down a river with some rapids. It was a lot of driving, but we felt we really got a sense of the island by driving 1.5 hours to the Blue Hole. Also, depending on when you go, the fresh waters change in color. It wasn't the blue you see in the pictures when we went, but it was still very beautiful.
Where we docked on our cruise to Part 1 of the excursion is a hour and 20 min drive. Blue hole is BEAUTIFUL!! You’re climbing waterfalls and rocks then jumping into the water. Also, rope swings. Secure bathing suit and water shoes to be worn. I wish we would have brought an underwater camera. We left everything else in the van. Bring a towel!! You spend a little over a hour here. Then, back into the van for an hour drive back to the river. We tubed down and it was so worth it. It was gorgeous. Our tour guide was awesome!! Afterwords, we got on a boat that took us to the beach. They had wash rooms/ showers to use and change into dry clothes. We were served food and it was jerk chicken, rice, and pasta salad. It was so so so good!! Then the drive back to port was about 25 min. The drive may seem long but the scenery was totally worth it, too.
It was beautiful and a lot of fun.
