What You Can Expect
A fascinating piece of both Jamaican nature and history, the Green Grotto Caves are near Discovery Bay. As you explore the caves, you’ll see stalagmites, stalactites and a subterranean lake. Hear stories of slaves who hid in the caves, and marvel at the limestone formations. As a route of escape for the Spaniards during the English invasion in the 1600s and as a place to hide rum barrels during WWII, the history of Green Grotto Caves is rich.
This fantastic Ocho Rios shore excursion gives you the chance to see some of the best of Jamaica during the short time that you are in port.

Very interesting tour. Guide was awesome telling all the history and stories of the caves.
We were meet at the gate of the ship port by our tour driver right after the ship was in dock. Our driver was very nice and courtious. The drive to the Caves took awhile and he told us about the area and answered any questions we asked on the way to and back from the Caves. The tour of the Caves themselves was about an hour with a lot of walking and stairs. The day we went it was quite comfortable in the caves. All in all it was very enjoyable. We were taken back to the cruise ship afterwards.
This was breath taking to see the Green Grotto Cave. Tour was perfectly arranged from ship disembarkation to the comfort of the drive to get to the cave. A magnificent place to see with the wonderful people managing the caves.
We had private transportation to and from the ship and our guide even took us a ways off the track to show us a scene of beauty.
We had been to Ocho Rios before and had seen the falls and gardens, I would highly recommend the trip to the Green Grotto Caves. It is really worth seeing. The guide at the cave was outstanding. We walked through with another couple.You wear hard hats so that you don't bump your head on the low areas. We were pick up at the port and it was a 45 minute drive to the cave.
This tour was exactly as described, and more fun and entertaining than expected because of our guide "Johnson" who was a gentleman in every way and focused on making sure we had a good trip. The cave was well laid out to accomodate several groups of tourists-good lighting, handrails where possible, and seating at scattered locations. The cave guide enjoyed relating the history and made sure everyone was safe without being overbearing. Highly recommend if you've been to Jamaica before and have a few hours to spend seeing a beautiful part of the island.

The diver was great. He picked us up at the port. It took awhile for him to find us since the ship docked at a different pier. The driver was very safe. The driver deserves a 5. The caves themselves were disappointing. They were not very large caves compared to what we are used to close to home. The tour guide in the cave was very nice. They gave a fruit drink at the end of the tour. The drive to the cave allowed us to see the area.
