Travel from Kingston to the rain forest around Ocho Rios on a private 8-hour tour that visits the Blue Hole and River Gully Falls. Take a refreshing dip in the clear waters, perhaps try cliff jumping, and wind down the excursion with shopping and a Jamaican lunch (own expense) on your way back to Kingston.
Your tour starts with hotel or cruise terminal pickup in Kingston.
Relax in your air-conditioned vehicle during the scenic 2-hour drive through the coastal towns of Ocho Rios, White River, and Exchange. As you reach higher elevations, you’ll see the rainforest of Calia Gully, and pass by one of Jamaica's oldest hydroelectric plants.
Upon entering the River Gully rainforest, you come upon the famous Blue Hole, a natural mineral pool with turquoise waters that is surrounded by boulders, waterfalls, and lush tropical greenery.
Take a dip in the water, relax on the rocks, or try cliff jumping and underwater cave exploration if you dare. Then venture further into the rainforest to see the Hidden Beauty Rainforest Oasis before completing your tour.
During the return drive to Kingston, stop for a typical lunch at a jerk restaurant, and visit a local craft market to shop for souvenirs. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Kingston hotel or cruise port.
