A large professional outfit...
Professional outfit based at Hotel Mocking Bird Hill that aims to promote ecocultural tourism in Portland and the Blue Mountains. Tailor-made guided soft-adventure tours include walking, hiking and cultural excursions.
Is essentially a continuation of Heavy Sands – more dark sand studded with shells and loads of clean ocean. Excellent for swimming, but again, don’t swim out too far as you’ll likely be on your own out here.
Very well-respected cultural tours in and around Kingston, including the Blue Mountains. Excellent themed tours include history, food, music and art, either as a group (from US$65 per person) or tailor-made.
A par-71 championship course, this is perhaps the most splendid of the three championship-level golf courses around Ironshore. Green fees cover caddy and cart. Rates go down from May through December.
Specializes in catamaran cruises, including the the Dunn’s River Falls Cruise , which includes an hour’s snorkeling and entry to the falls, and the Catamaran Sunset Sail , with drinks and buffet dinner.
Established adventure specialist offering horseback-riding tours, river tubing, zip-line canopy tours, ATV safaris, trips to Bob Marley’s birthplace at Nine Mile and even dog-sleigh tours.
Contact Michael through the Tours by Locals website for individually personalized tours of the Maroon country, Cockpit Country, and other areas not covered by the big package- tour dealers.
Give friendly Captain Lando a call; he’s happy to arrange charters. Expect to pay around US$60 for a half day trip, although these rates may be higher if he gets a bigger boat.
This trail begins beside the Anglican church, crossing Yallahs River and Green River and leading uphill for 8km (1½ to two hours) to Penlyne Castle and on to Blue Mountain Peak.
Call Winston for a personalized, intimate tour via his own JUTA-approved minibus. He’ll tailor schedules for individual itineraries, which provides a nice level of flexibility.

Specializes in memorable aerial tours of Jamaica. Choose from ‘James Bond’s Jamaica,’ ‘Memories of Jamaica,’ or the all-encompassing ‘Jamaica Showcase.’
The 18-hole golf course is laid out along valleys surrounded by rainforest. The bird sanctuary comprises primary forest and is not developed for tourism.
Phillip provides personal (and personable) tours of his home island catering for individual travelers. A nice break from being herded around in a big bus.
