Exclusive Ocho Rios Dunn's River Falls and Area Highlights

Escape the large cruise ship tours on this exclusive small-group excursion to the famous Dunn's Falls and the many highlights of Ocho Rios.

Dunn's Falls is roughly 600 feet above sea level, with beautiful crystal-clear water running down the mountain into the ocean. It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to climb up the mountain. There are places along the way where you can slide down into pools of water, take a swim and climb again. For those who wish to stop climbing, there are multiple points where you can leave the falls and walk on the adjacent path. There are local "guides" at the falls who will lead you up. These guides are separate from your Ocho Rios Falls tour and will expect a gratuity when you reach the top.

Next, you will depart for your tour of the highlights around Ocho Rios, which includes a drive-through Fern Gully. Once a river bed, Fern Gully is now a rainforest known for its incredible biodiversity and is home to many different species of ferns, which you will see on both sides of the roadway. Your first stop will be Shaw Park Lookout. From this lookout, you can see across the lush 25 acres of tropical foliage in the garden (the garden itself is not visited on this tour) to the town of Ocho Rios and the beautiful Caribbean in the distance. You will also have an up-close look at a Banyan Tree that is over 200 years old.

You will drive to the village of Spice Mountain, where you will see how some of the locals live. Your driver will stop at a spice shack where you can purchase some of the local spices. Finally, you will head down through Ocho Rios where you can stroll through local shops before returning to your ship.

Fun day in Ocho rios
March 24, 2020
The local Jamaican authorities did not allow disembarking the ship till afternoon and tours were being cancelled. Was very surprised to see that our guide had waited for us all morning. She made it a fun afternoon. The falls are fun to climb even though spoils a bit the beauty of the place.

Don't miss it!

Tour company met us right at end of pier, very friendly. Dunn's Falls climb was awesome but wouldn't recommend if you have feet, knee and back problems. Only thing I didn't like was the solicitation of vendors on your way out of the park. They are many and quite aggressive. Just ignore. Highlight tour was quick but very informative. Got to sample raw sugar cane and some fruits. There was time allocated to shop but we walked back to the ship. Do this tour!

What a Blast
February 04, 2020
I wasn't sure what to expect, but any hopes for a decent time were greatly exceeded. From the local guides who helped us to the top, to the people we met on the way up, it was a great time. Mildly strenuous, but if this 67 year old can do it there aren't too many who won't be able to. Highly recommended, but wear good water shoes and carry nothing that can't get wet, because that's half the fun.

The area highlights of this tour were very limited...just a drive through the upper regions. Nothing specific to see or do. The Falls is beautiful. You can walk half of the Falls and stop before the really steep part.

The fall is amazing. We climbed from the sea to the top of the fall. I wish they could give us more time to enjoy the view.
