Description

When your cruise ship docks in Falmouth, hop off for a tour to the Blue Hole in Ocho Rios. Swim in the pristine fresh waters of the waterfalls that cascade into the Blue Hole. If you’re daring, you can jump from the rocks into the turquoise waters. You’ll also see local communities as you travel along the new North Coast Highway and stop at Columbus Park, where Christopher Columbus landed upon his first visit to Jamaica in 1494.

Your driver picks you up at the cruise port in Falmouth and transfers you by air-conditioned minivan to the Blue Hole, a drive of about 1.5 hours.

Located in the hills outside of Ocho Rios, the Blue Hole has several natural pools fed by cascading waterfalls. For a thrilling experience, you can sail over the water on a rope swing or jump into the water from the rocks.

Upon your arrival at the falls, your local guide takes you around the area and helps to ensure your safety on the slippery rocks. Expect to spend about one hour at the Blue Hole, then head to Columbus Park on your way back to Falmouth.

During your stop at the historic open-air museum of Columbus Park, you’ll see maritime artifacts, displays about the Spanish colonial period, and learn about the impact of Columbus’ 1494 landing in Jamaica.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your cruise ship.
