Experience the Jamaican way of life during this 7-hour rainforest adventure to Ocho Rios from Montego Bay.

The adventure begins the moment you board the ‘River Gully Express,’ which will pick you up from your Montego Bay hotel or cruise terminal. Drive through the coastal town of Ocho Rios and watch the vibrant local life passing underfoot. Continue through the villages of White River and Exchange while heading to a higher elevation and notice the Calia Gully rainforest taking shape all around. Stop at one of Jamaica’s oldest hydroelectric plants and learn how wood is used to carry water. Next it’s time to enter the ‘River Gully’ rainforest, making time for the famous Blue Hole, a natural mineral pool with rocky cliffs, waterfalls and turquoise blue waters. The pool is surrounded by lush vegetation and exotic flowers and is the perfect swimming paradise. Optional cliff jumping and underwater cave exploration is available, or just sit back and relax on the rocks. Head deeper into the rainforest to the Hidden Beauty Rainforest Oasis. The tour will end here and head towards a local Jamaican craft market for shopping. Enjoy a delicious traditional ‘jerk’ lunch at one of the restaurants or just look for souvenirs before returning to your hotel or cruise port in Montego Bay.
