When your ship docks in Montego Bay, disembark and meet your local guide for a 5-hour shore excursion. Board your vehicle for the drive to one of Jamaica's most famous natural wonders, the Green Grotto Caves.
Upon arrival, note the green algae covering the walls, giving the cave its name. Walk past many different types of limestone rock formations, including an impressive number of stalagmites and stalactites. View a pristine, crystal-clear underground lake located deep within the cave.
Learn about the caves' interesting history as an escape route for the Jamaican people during the 17th century. Look for native cave life forms like bats and barnacles, and free to ask your guide any questions before heading to your next stop.
At Whittier Village, a recently-built shopping and retail complex, explore at your leisure. Stop and enjoy some sun in the landscaped village square in between attempts to search for the perfect souvenir. Enjoy transportation back to the port in Montego Bay in plenty of time to catch your departing ship.
We had a great tour guide. He was very informative and catered to our every need. I left my hat at Margaritaville in Montego Bay and he went all the way back from the ship and retrieved it for me. I recommend this tour to everyone. I will submit pictures later.
Thanks the women from Washington State.
The only problem with this tour is that the drive time getting there is longer than the tour and the driver didn't keep us awake. The Caves were very cool and the tour quide was funny and he interacted with everyone. Our shopping experience wasn't the greatest as our driver took us to a higher end shopping place where there really was only 2 places to shop, instead of taking us to the downtown shopping district where there were tons of shopping and better prices.
Once the driver arrived, he was friendly and accommodating. However, we had to wait over an hour for him to pick us up after we got off our ship! The caves were great. The stop at Whitter Village was okay - not many stores to choose from. Overall, a good excursion that got started late.
I wasn't made aware that I'd be sharing a van with other people. People who had a different excursion than my family so we were held back time-wise because of having to pick up and drop off these other people. Also because of that fact we had to stay close by them, our shopping experience was extremely limited. The Green Grotto Caves were nice. The guide was informative. We had fun. But the rest of the excursion was a bust because of the van sharing.
The driver only took us to the cave and shopping.
My understanding was we'll go in a boat as the name is Shore Excursion
and when I called to book all these that's what I was told
