Your friendly tour guide will meet you just outside your cruise ship pier in Ocho Rios. You will get checked in, on board the air-conditioned transportation and the fun day begins. You will get lots of information from your excursion guide as you head to your first stop at Prospect Plantation. This is a great way to get out and see Jamaica with a nice combination of sightseeing around Ocho Rios, a visit to a working fruit plantation, shopping and a memorable climb up Dunns River Falls in this unique Ocho Rios Cruise Excursion. When you arrive at Prospect, you will be taking a short drive of the estate on a tractor-drawn jitney (hayride). The guide will point out the different crops growing like sugarcane, bananas, pineapples, coffee, papaya and more. This is an educational as well as an entertaining excursion. During your tour around the plantation, you will be offered various samples of fruit. You will also be given the opportunity to see the famous "Farmer Brown" climb a 35ft coconut tree barefoot to cut down coconut and then you can try the fresh coconut water. The Prospect Great House filled with antiques, and offers panoramic views of the Caribbean and the Gardens. Your next stop on this shore excursion from Ocho Rios will be shopping and you will enjoy a typical Jamaican light lunch. Then you will be off to see the famous Dunns River Falls! An experienced falls guide will go over all the techniques and safety tips with your group before having you join hands and make a human chain as he leads you up the falls.
You can stop along the way to take in the view and enjoy a fall's created "massage" as the water pours over the rocks onto your shoulders. Guests also have the option just to relax in one of the river pools at the bottom to watch. After your Ocho Rios shore excursion adventure, the transportation will take you back to the cruise ship pier.
