Learn about Fern Gully, a unique rainforest with a main road to traverse through its midst, boasting over 200 different varieties of ferns. Though the origin of the Fern Gully is uncertain, it is suggested to have been caused by an underground river flowing through caves and later the roof collapsing in, some suggestions are even a flash flood in the 1760s. Many writers such as Marianne North 1871, Lady Brassey 1883, Antonio Gallenga 1873 wrote about Gully Road on their Voyages to Ocho Rios. On the way back from Fern Gully, feel free to have lunch at one of Jamaica's famous jerky center, enjoying the delicious meal with an ice cold Red Stripe beer or tropical fruit drinks.

It was a fantastic experience, our guide made us feel very safe. As well as being very skilled at piloting the raft down river and gave us facts and history about Jamaica and it’s nature . And the raft ride was really fun and entertaining. I would recommend this everyone visiting Jay

We so enjoyed this excursion but what made it all work was our bus driver, Robert! He did a great job taking us to all our excursions! The guide for the falls was excellent as well and we felt so safe climbing the falls!

I upgraded to a private tour and glad that I did. I paid more for the upgrade u the tour was more flexible no rushing.

Great experience. We added the lagoon tour. From beginning to end the tour was great.

Very enjoyable day, good guide and driver. Food was fine too, great company!
