    Tour Overview

    Board your air-conditioned transportation for a scenic drive along the Ocho Rios coastline and through the town of St. Ann's Bay, where Columbus' ship was marooned, en route to the Green Grotto Caves in Discovery Bay. Located near Columbus' 1494 landing site, the extensive maze of limestone caves are five million years old and have an exciting and rich history. Used by runaway slaves, Taino Indians, and pirates, the caves were also utilized during the Second World War as a secret hiding place for large barrels of rum. Visitors to this attraction date as far back as the 18th century.

    Greet your guide and don a protective hard hat for your tour of the caverns' interconnecting passages. Walk through chambers, light holes, stalactites and stalagmites, and see the subterranean lake that lies deep within the cave's core. As you walk through the caves you will see limestone formations that have been christened after the individuals they resemble, including Abraham Lincoln, Freddie Krueger, and cartoon character Scooby Doo, among others. Your guide will demonstrate the caves' musical stones and you can make a wish at the wishing well. At the end of your experience, a refreshing beverage energizes you for the next stop on this adventure filled tour.

    One of Jamaica's national treasures, Dunn's River Falls is a breathtaking beauty. A natural phenomenon due to its ability to regenerate itself with deposits of calcium carbonate and sodium from the flowing water, it is also one of the only waterfalls in the world that empties directly into the sea. Approximately 600 feet high, sparkling water cascades over natural stepping platforms that allow you to climb from the bottom to the top. A frequent sight is a group of enthusiastic climbers holding hands in a chain, as they're being led to the top of the waterfall by a trained guide. For visitors who prefer not to get wet, a walkway along the side of the falls allows you to take full advantage of the experience. The surrounding area is lush with overhanging trees, cool mists, and tropical foliage.
