Full description
Your tour will begin as you meet your courteous and professional guide for an exciting trip that will take you to the late Bob Marley's roots for a reggae and culture tour. You can observe the changes in the scenery as you drive along the north coast, before turning onto a winding country road to the mountains and on to Nine Miles, a quaint village in the beautiful mountains of St. Ann. It was here, on the 6th of February 1945, the legendary "King of Reggae" was born, and was the very same place he was laid to rest.

A tour of Nine Miles is a family affair, as many of Bob's close relatives still live there. Once on the property, you will be joined by Rastafarian guides who will share insights of the life of young Bob Marley and his musical career. You will observe a room that he slept in as a young child, and can visit a nearby Ethiopian Church where the Marley Mausoleum is located. Here you will see two tombs in the mausoleum, one where Bob is laid to rest with his guitar along with his half-brother, Anthony Booker. The second tomb is where their mom, Cedella Booker “Mamma Marley” is buried. You can then dance and sing along with a live reggae band during a tour of the village.

Next, you will travel to the community of Mt. Zion to visit a revival church to experience another element of Jamaica's rich heritage and culture. You will be captivated by what you see and hear, as you clap, dance, sing along, or just stand enlightened by a true "poco" experience. Following the tour, you will enjoy a delightful Jamaican "jerk lunch" before returning to your cruise port for a relaxing evening.
