Jamaica: Dunn's River Falls, 9 Mile and Optional Lagoon Tour

1. Jamaica: Dunn's River Falls, 9 Mile and Optional Lagoon Tour

With this excursion, instead of taking 3 days out of your vacation to see all of these popular Jamaican attractions you can visit them all in just 1 day. Climb Dunn’s River Falls. With the help of your guide, you’ll climb 600 feet to the top of this magnificent waterfall that’s tiered like a wedding cake. Stop for a swim in the refreshing rock pools. With the guide’s help, it’s an easy climb that everyone can enjoy. After the falls, you’ll have a tour of the town of Ocho Rios with a stop for souvenir shopping and to enjoy a typical Jamaican lunch. Next, you’ll head off on a drive through small market towns and hills to 9 Mile, the birth and final resting place of reggae superstar Bob Marley. Hear the story of his childhood and rise to stardom. Option Bioluminescent Lagoon Cruise and Dinner As you head back towards the coast you’ll stop at the Joe James Restaurant and Art Gallery. Enjoy Mr. James’s artwork and sit sown for a Jamaican family-style dinner (included). Finish your tour with a visit to the Luminous Lagoon, inhabited by microscopic organisms that emit a phosphorescent light when the water is agitated. Shortly after sunset, you’ll board a boat that takes you across the lagoon. As the water is disturbed, you’ll see the water illuminated behind the boat. Stop to enjoy a swim and watch your body glow. This luminous phenomenon is only seen in 3 locations on the planet.

What people are saying about Ocho Rios

I loved this tour and all the stops! Dunnes River was excellent and fun, 9 mile was so neat — I’m not a huge Marley fan but I found the whole thing so interesting (minus the very sexist and crude tour guide at 9 mile), and the luminous lagoon was so much fun. I also loved the beautiful views and sunset from the tour van and even the food was pretty good. The main issue is that our tour guide for the overall trip did not speak much and when he did he was very quiet. It was honestly fine though because the view was so beautiful.

Great day out. Long day of travelling but worth it to climb up the falls and visit Bob Marleys house. Also made better by the knowledgeable tour guide Washington and his friendly driver David.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE! The my guide was 50 and he took great care of us to ensure we didn’t fall going up and that we got great videos Definitely will do this again when I return

Robert was great. He was pleasant and made sure everyone was comfortable. He was very familiar and skilled with challenging roads up to 9 mile.

Everything was great, it was fun and there is certainly something for everyone!
