This full day excursion provides a complete experience of Jamaica’s two most popular river based attractions: the famous Blue Hole in Ocho Rios, and our River Rapids attraction at the Rio Bueno river.
Your tour begins when you meet your driver at the cruise port and start the scenic drive along the North Coast highway. The drive to Blue Hole lasts approximately 70 minutes as you pass through the historic town of Ocho Rios and up the hills of the White River Valley. As you arrive at the Blue Hole, you are greeted by your tour guide who will assist and lead you through the many activities available.
After checking in you receive your life vest and follow your tour guide along the jungle path to the edge of the White River where all of the fun begins. You can choose to climb up an area of mini waterfalls, explore the small cave located behind the main waterfall, jump over 15 feet from the platform into the deep waters of the main pool, or just chill out in the cool turquoise water and admire the natural beauty of the surrounding rainforest.
Our tour at the Blue Hole lasts approximately 90 minutes and then it’s time to meet with your driver again and head to River Rapids Adventures. Before experiencing your river adventure, you stop at a private beach for your complimentary Jamaican lunch and a non-alcoholic beverage. After lunch it is only a few minutes drive up the Rio Bueno river road to start your River Rapids tour.
At River Rapids you can choose between tubing, rafting, or kayaking for your float down the Rio Bueno river. Your tour guide will assist and lead you during the entire journey downstream as you admire the surrounding ecosystem. Your float time on the river lasts about 45 minutes and then you paddle out into the Caribbean Sea and to Bengal Beach. At the beach you still have a few minutes to relax, enjoy a drink at the beach bar, and change into some dry clothes before meeting with your driver and heading back to the cruise port.
