THINGS TO DO IN JAMAICA
Jamaica is a major cruise ship destination, and we boast state of the art ship ports in 4 locations on the island.
There is the Falmouth Pier, which is the newest and largest of the lot. It is situated in the historic Georgian town of Falmouth with attractions such as Swamp Safari which is a crocodile sanctuary, rafting on the Martha Brae river, and old Great Houses of the 1700’s that are relics from the slave era. And because the town is centrally located, you have ample time to disembark, visit other attractions throughout the island and get back before departure time.
The Montego Bay Pier is located in the heart of the city, which boasts duty free shopping areas, restaurants for a taste of our local cuisine, the famed Margaritaville, and pristine white sand beaches. It is also in close proximity to other attractions such as the Dunn’s River Falls, the Appleton Estate Rum Factory and experiencing Negril with horseback riding along the 7 miles of white sand beach. Again, there is ample time to disembark, visit other attractions throughout the island and get back before departure time.
The Ocho Rios pier is also centrally located in the town of Ocho Rios and within walking distance of the famed Dunn’s River Falls, swimming with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove, Ziplining at Mystic Mountain or just a short ride to Chukka Cove for horseback riding. Once again there is ample time to disembark, visit other attractions throughout the island and get back before departure time.
The Port Antonio pier is located in the lush, green, rustic parish of Portland, home of the romantic rafting on the Blue Lagoon, The Blue Mountain Tour and Hikes, discovering the mystery of the Nonsuch caves, or just relaxing at the Summerset and Reach Falls. You can also take a visit to nearby Kingston, our capital city, to tour the Bob Marley museum, Culture Yard, take a tour of Port Royal once home to the most notorious pirate Henry Morgan, and take advantage of duty free and craft shopping.
