Tour Overview

What you will visit:

Dunn River Falls
One of Jamaica's national treasures, Dunn's River Falls is a breathtaking beauty and one of the only waterfalls in the world that empties directly into the sea. From 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 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. Please note that Dunn's River Falls can be very slippery in places. Wear sturdy rubber-soled shoes or rent them shoreside.

Dolphin Cove
A lush paradise welcomes guests to this expansive facility, which includes over five acres of tropical forest. In addition to the beauty of the turquoise waters and white-sand beaches, the tropical facility is home to a pod of playful and lively bottlenose dolphins. Dolphin encounters offer up-close and personal experiences with the playful marine mammals and the opportunity to splash, frolic, share a kiss and enjoy a "belly ride" though the waters. After a dolphin encounter, guests may enjoy a jungle walk for an up-close experience with tropical animals such as iguanas and parrots, visit the bird aviary and feed the colorful free-flying lovebirds, watch local artists at work and interact with exotic sea creatures in the touch tank display. The Little Port Royal section of the grounds offers a replica of Jamaica's most famous pirate city.

What you will see along the way:
Once a fishing village, Ocho Rios, situated on the north coast of the island, is a thriving port that still maintains its unspoiled charms. Your motorcoach ride meanders through the lush, unspoiled interior of Ocho Rios winding past coastline vistas, local schools, churches and rural Jamaican villages.

Snack:
At Dolphin Cove, you'll receive a refreshing drink when you arrive at this lush paradise.

Shopping:
Browse through the largest gift shops of any attraction in Jamaica for souvenirs, jewelry and locally handcrafted items. Local delicacies, liquor, coffee and spices are also for sale.
