Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Runaway Bay, Jamaica

This tour takes you through one of the most popular towns on the Island. Runaway Bay is naturally beautiful and is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica. It sits between the beautiful, crisp coastline to one side and the lush green mountains to the other. There is much debate as to how the town of Runaway Bay got its name. some people believe it got the name because that is where the last batch of Spanish soldiers ran away from when they were retreating from the attacking British Troops lead by Governor Ysassi right after the 1655 British invasion of Jamaica, while other argue that it was the point from which the Slaves from inland plantations used as an escape route to runaway to Cuba. Get your cameras ready to go as you make your way through this area.

Stop At: Columbus Park Museum, Jamaica

The town of Discovery Bay is where you will find Columbus Park. It was originally named Puerto Seco (Dry Harbour) by Christopher Columbus in 1494 when he and his men landed on the Island. It is said that could not find fresh water to drink. They later found fresh water in another area about 5 miles west of the town. The water was so good that they named the location where it was found Rio Bueno (Good River). However, the town of Puerto Seco was later renamed in 1947 to Discovery Bay because Discovery Bay is where the Spanish, lead by Christopher Columbus landed when they invaded the Island on May 4, 1494. There is a park with several old relics and artifacts on display. There will be a brief stop to take photos and capture the rich history of this historic town.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Blue Hole, Ocho Rios, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica

After the scenic drive you will head to Cool Blue Hole and Secret Falls just in time to meet your knowledgeable guide who will be your best friend for the next two hours until the end of the activity. Hidden on the border of Saint Ann and Saint Mary Parishes up in the mountains and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns is where you find this unspoiled, untouched rare gem. The Cool Blue Hole oasis offers an array of natural beauty and electrifying fun. Take in the gorgeous, bright blue water in the natural mineral pool surrounded by lush, tropical rain-forest. Have a blast jumping off the edge into the deep pool, swinging on Tarzan ropes or swimming up under the caves. Then, there will be a 5-minute hike through the woods to the amazing Secret Falls. You are in awe as you make your way through the magnificent, lush green vegetation up to the Secret Falls. There you can allow the cascading waters to hug you while you take amazing photo shots. Feel free to take lots of photos on this tour. Independent professional photographers are available to take photos at a cost however, if you prefer to take your own feel free to do so at your own risk.

Duration: 2 hours

Shopping in Ocho Rios on this day trip will be at the Taj Mahal Shopping Center. A wide variety of items are available in this one area. Items includes rums, coffee, T-shirts, hats, jewelry, Harley D products, etc. however, since this is a private tour where you get to call the shots, you have the choice of requesting or have dialogue with your tour guide to take you to other shopping spots within that geographical location.

    This place was amazing, the crew was wonderful and made this vacation absolutely perfect. Would recommend this to anyone. Cant wait to come back again.

    Our driver Marlon was great, On our ride from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios he was a combination driver and tour guide. While we were all at the Blue Hole and Secret Falls, he stayed at the vehicle to safeguard our belongings. Our guides Tyrone and Akeem were also excellent making sure everyone was safe on the trails and slippery rocks. My only disappointment with this excursion was that it did not go to Scotchies as it stated in the description of the tour. We went to a restaurant called Tracks and Records which is affiliated with Usain Bolt, either through ownership or licensing. The only reason we chose this excursion over the many other tour companies that go to the Blue Hole was because it specifically listed Scotchies as the lunch stop. Viator should remove Scotchies from the description otherwise it borders on false advertising. Unfortunately, this was our last full day on the Island, so we never got to check out this world famous spot.

    Blue hole and secret falls are in the same location but walking distance apart. Two separate jumps which was fun. The shopping was just a store next to the restaurant.

  • 10-Jan-2018

    This was a great day trip! The waterfall was not over crowded with tourist and we got to swim in the Blue Hole by ourselves for at least a half hour before we decided to climb the falls.

    This tour was amazing!

    Our driver, Marlon, was very knowledgeable about Jamaica and gave us lots of information on the 2 hour drive to the falls. He kept us entertained, so the drive didn't feel that long. When we arrived at Blue Hole, we we're greeted by Gleneil and Tyrone who were the perfect tour guides. A few people in my party did not know how to swim. Even though we all had life jackets, we still had our doubt about getting in the water. They reassured us that they would not let us drown and stayed right beside us the entire time. It was an overall great experience.

    The Blue Hole was beautiful. Started good with SNL tours with the driver...was surprised that he allowed girls who hadn't signed up to get on for an 27 for both. Then he continued to give them freebies, like a 40 photo dvd that several of us had to pay, then over charged us for a beer special so their dinner was free...he purchased a brownie for them but then insisted on stopping at ATM to make them pay 5. Everyone was concerned about time but he had to stop at very scary store for shopping so he would get his kickbacks. I was approached and told to pay additional 20 from what I paid at this website...ended up late back to waiting cruise ship...told to relax we were on Jamacia time mon. Lots of special deals and kickbacks...women stated they didn't feel safe, nobody liked the continual money request/begging. We will not return to this tour or recommend others to use SNL.

    Awesome trip with the best driver Marlin! Choose Blue Hole over Dunns River Falls. I've done both and enjoyed this so much more. Climb to the top of 3 different water falls then either jump or rope swing into the blue holes back to the bottom. Marlin was the perfect driver for this day trip. He was full of info and wonderful at getting to know us, too!!

    We had an amazing time. Our guide Marlon and Tyrone were great to work with. The Falls were beautiful and the food was great.

    Little paradise, less crowded than Dunn's River. Incredibly blue waters. Heaven.
