7. From Ocho Rios: Bob Marley & Dunn’s River Falls 5-Hour Tour
On this 5-hour tour you will be picked up from your cruise ship or another agreed location in Ocho Rios and taken on a scenic drive through rustic rural villages and open farmlands displaying their fresh produce. Throughout the tour you will visit Bob Marley’s childhood home and Dunn’s River Falls, where you climb to the top of the waterfall and admire the magnificent scenery.
On reaching Bob Marley’s place, you will begin a walking tour through the house he lived in as a young boy, now a memorabilia and photo gallery. Your Rastafarian guide will share with you little-known insights into Bob’s childhood and musical career, and you will even have the chance to stand on “Mount Zion Rock”, Bob’s meditation spot. The highlight of the tour is of course walking through the revered mausoleum, Bob's final resting place.
You will then take an exciting journey through the countryside to see the magnificent 600-foot Dunn’s River Falls. The trained guides will take you to the base of the falls, where you will be given information and suggestions on how to climb to the top of the waterfall. You will follow a human chain link led by your guide as you skillfully make your way to the top.
Stop along the way to enjoy interesting spots, such as pools to dive in, slides, and caves that are hidden out of sight. At the top, you can reward yourself for the bravery and accomplishment by having your picture taken. You can then browse the park for unusual souvenir items, visit the food court for a delicious Jamaican meal, or just wander around the lush green garden that will overwhelm you with its natural beauty and warmth.
