Full description
You’ll be greeted at your hotel by a uniformed chauffeur and then enjoy a non-stop drive to Port Royal in a spacious air-conditioned vehicle. Choose from Kingston or Ocho Rios departures on this activity with a duration of 3 or 6 hours, depending on the starting point.

Port Royal was once the busiest city in the Caribbean and a bustling trading center. Disaster struck many times however, and the city was frequently ravaged by hurricanes and earthquakes. The largest of the earthquakes occurred in 1692, sending 90 percent of the city under water.

It is now a sleepy fishing town with remnants of its former glory. However, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of a town that enjoys the simple life. Although it is geographically close to Kingston, it bears little similarity to the capital.

Attractions you will see include Fort Charles and the Giddy House. The town is home to museums and a number of critically acclaimed fish restaurants.

After exploring the town you can take time to enjoy a delectable lunch at Port Royal at your choice of the many local eateries.
