Full description
Enjoy a scenic 2-21/2 hrs. drive through mountains and along the picturesque shoreline to the Appleton Estate. Walk into this modern world class facility where you get your tickets, complimentary drinks of your choice, sit, relax, and enjoy the ambience of the facility while waiting on your tour to begin. After being introduced to your tour guide, you will be escorted to a mini theater to watch a short documentary on the entire estate's history and rum production, after which your walking tour will begin. You will step out of the theater and step back into time as you are shown the old ways of how the estate operated back in the 18th century. You will meet Paz the donkey who operate the mill, then taken to the sugar cane station where you learn about the growing and the different types of sugar cane plant. You will also sample the sugar cane, sugar cane juice and molasses at the molasses station and learn of its benefits after which you will be taken into the factory where the modern production takes place. A tour of the aging house is next after which you are taken back inside the main building for a lesson on the different types of rum and get to sample them which brings the tour to an end and then you can do some shopping in the gift shop. Your second tour begins with a 40 minutes' drive from the Appleton Estate through the town of Black River to the community of Parotee to get to the Pelican Bar. Upon on arriving, you will purchase your tickets for the boat ride and board a local boat on the beach for a few minutes ride to the bar located on a sand bank in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. There you will enjoy total relaxation in a laid-back atmosphere where you can swim, sunbathe, drink beers and enjoy a sea food lunch of fish, conch, lobster or shrimp done any style.

It was a great day for us. The Appleton Estate is closed on Sunday and Monday, so we didn’t get to go into the estate. Getting there was long winding roads going thru several towns. The driver was so great. He gave us the information about each town and the communities. It was fantastic. The highlight was getting on the boat to the Pelican Bar. What a cool place in the middle of the Sea. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this tour and this driver. He is fantastic!
