Private Shore Excursions Jamaica

Traveling to Jamaica on a cruise is the ultimate experience; regardless of which of the three major cruise ports you arrive at there is always adventure at your finger tips. From east to west there is the Ocho Rios Port; about an hour apart is the Falmouth Port and approximately forty-five minutes away is the Montego Bay Port. Cruising in the Caribbean doesn’t get better than to Jamaica.   


If you can imagine the ideal Cruise Port as it concerns adventures within close proximity the Ocho Rios Pier must come to mind; Ocho Rios is one of the most envied resort town as it relates to shore excursions in the Caribbean. Situated on the northern coast of Jamaica, Ocho Rios has something for everyone; the town is a true testament to its name “Ocho Rios” which means “Eight Rivers” in Spanish. Located in the Parish of St. Ann which is dubbed the Garden Parish, Ocho Rios is blessed with an abundance of fresh water spouts, lush rolling mountains adorned with multi flora, majestic waterfalls and beautiful beaches.

Additionally, the Ocho Rios Cruise Port welcomes many cruise lines each week; a testament to being ideal for great experiences for international visitors. For guests who want to indulge in a variety of excursions and adventures, Ocho Rios is perfect; shore excursions such as the Blue Hole Secret Falls, Dunn’s River Falls, Bobsleding on a rail, Zipline, Horse-back riding, Bob Marley Nine Mile are just a few that can be done easily.

The close proximity of some of these excursion sites to the Ocho Rios Cruise Port offer the opportunity of combining many of these excursions to create your best day on a cruise to the beautiful island of Jamaica. For water activities, the Dunn’s River Falls is just about 5 minutes’ drive from the Ocho Rios Port, it is Jamaica’s premier tourist attractions. One drawback though is the fact that it could be crowded on a cruise ship day if there are 3 or more cruise ships on the island at once. Not to worry, there is an alternative which is probable better, especially for the variety it offers. The Secret Falls in Ocho Rios is reported by visitors to be a much better experience by far when compared to the Dunn’s River Falls adventure.

The difference between these two falls is quite obvious to the naked eye. No one can argue successfully that the Dunn’s River Falls is not majestic, beautiful and that it is great for fun seekers; with the main activities being climbing the falls and dipping in non-treating small natural pools. On one hand, the Dunn’s River boasts the most famous natural attraction in Jamaica that sees thousands of thrill seekers daily. The grounds are immaculately kept while there are well organized parking areas.

In the other hand, the Blue Hole has a different level of wonder. The property is more rustic in nature, the water body is a deep blue, picturesque and offers a variety of activities. The Secret Falls Ocho Rios is a one of a kind of natural attractions offering rope swings, diving, swimming, cave exploration and more. It is usually less crowed than the Dunn’s River and is just a few minutes’ drive from the Cruise Port in Ocho Rios. Talk about variety; horseback ride and swim is another great option. There are quite a few places that offers this fantastic activity and it makes a great combination with the Blue Hole Secret Falls for a fun packed day.

Traveling further to the western region of Jamaica is the town of Falmouth. The town is small and not the most ideal for Day Tours and private excursions; yet, its ideal location make accessibility to exciting places an easy feat. Visitors arriving at the Falmouth Port can also enjoy all the activities in Ocho Rios. Situated just 1 hour away, there is definitely more than enough time to get indulge in some of the best activities in Jamaica. Another option for visitors arriving at the Falmouth Port is spending the day in Montego Bay the tourism capital of Jamaica.

Though a little farther west, the Montego Bay Port offers great opportunities for adventures. Visitors arriving at the Montego Bay Cruise Port have no issues enjoying the attractions in Ocho Rios. Travelling by motor vehicle, it is only an hour and a half away from Ocho Rios; again there is ample time to get quite a bit done without risk of having a time crunch including adventures at the Blue Hole and Dunn’s River Falls. Cruising in the Caribbean is an awesome wonder; the memories that will be created during a cruise to Jamaica will be unforgettable regardless of the port you disembark. Jamaica is a splendid vacation destination hands down.
