What You Can Expect
At Sir Harold's Viewpoint the Jitney stops for you to enjoy a cool refreshing drink. From this lookout, the island's north coast and the probable site of Columbus' first view of the island can be seen. On a clear day, Cuba, some 90 miles away to the north, is visible on the horizon. The channel between the two islands was known as the Spanish Main by buccaneers because it was the dominant path taken by ships en route to Spain from Central America.
You will also embark on a Camel Trek around the plantation. Marvel at the stunning scenery and enjoy the unusual experience of riding a camel! You will be amazed at just how high you are on top of a camel!
You will also be taken to other points of interest within Prospect Plantation, such as, the Great House and the surrounding gardens, as well as getting the chance to feed the ostriches, pet the camels and see Farmer Joe climb a 30 foot Coconut Tree!

Tour guide Jackson was great, both informative and funny. Learning about the flora and fauna, tasting the fresh coconut right off the tree, smelling the leaves of allspice and giant limes, sensational. And the camel ride, though quite brief, was delightful. Greta peope, great place, great time, great camels!
Very good tour overall- the information was great, and the tour guides were fun. The plantation home and grounds were fantastic. I would suggest giving guests more time to ride on the camels and actually giving them a destination, instead of riding around in circles. The camel ride was fun, but a bit disappointing.
The camels were very cute and enjoyable. I would recommend this to travelers!
