What You Can Expect
After complimentary pickup from your hotel, head out to the village of Nine Mile by comfortable coach. Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of Jamaica in the parish of St Ann, this village was the birthplace of the legendary ‘King of Reggae.’ As you explore the area, learn about the interesting life of Bob Marley from your local guide. Stand on Mt Zion Rock, Bob's meditation spot, and rest your head on the ‘pillow’ made famous in the song ‘Talking Blues.’ After touring Nine Mile, enjoy a simple Jamaican lunch before continuing your drive to the island's famous Dunn's River Falls.
With the help of your guide, hike to the top of Dunn’s River Falls, a remarkable natural wonder. These sparkling terraced waterfalls cascade 600 feet (180 meters) down smooth tiers, leading down to the beach and its facilities. As you make your way to the top on a moderate hike, stop and swim in the refreshing rock pools. When you reach the top, admire breathtaking views of the Jamaican scenery below. After your trip, you’ll be transported back to your hotel.
Luminous Lagoon Option:
This option includes another one of Jamaica's most famous attractions - Luminous Lagoon! Shortly after sunset, walk to the the launching point, board a small boat and head out onto the lagoon with your expert guide. Learn about why the lagoon glows as you cruise to the center of the lagoon, which is less than 5 feet (1.5 meters) deep, and enjoy a complimentary beverage. As the water gets disturbed, see an eerie light illuminating from below.
If you're feeling adventurous, take a swim in the glowing water, one of only a few like it in the world! Don’t worry -- the lagoon’s eerie-looking water is actually completely harmless.
The falls was so much fun and not quite as challenging as it looks. The Bob Marley 9-Mile was an interesting experience in more ways than one. The driver and tour guide were not the best. The tour guide was limited as far as speaking clear English. She did not narrate at all during the duration of the close to 2 hour bus trek. The driver and tour guide appeared to be at some kind of odds at certain points of the trip. The ride to Bob Marley's 9-mile was very tedious in the mountains on what appeared to be a single lane road...rocky/dirt at times with our big tour bus. Several times the few cars in sight had to stop or ride on the very edge because of our bus. A van even had to back up to let us through. I am not sure if this was a real road...the driver seemed suspect throughout. However, once we arrived at the Falls and Nine Mile the excursions were well worth it. The transportation aspect (driver and tour guide on the bus), were the only negatives. I would definitely recommend using "Vacation Express" for scheduling excursions and NOT "Holiday Services" We had both and it was definitely a difference.
One of the highlights of my trip. Bernard was an amazing guide and truly fun to hang out with. Didn't realize that we would be stopping for Shopping, Columbus Park and be having dinner before the luminous lagoon, which was a great surprise. Good times!
