3. Bob Marley Jeep Tour

A unique opportunity to visit the birthplace of the “King of Reggae”.

This tour takes you through some of the most breathtaking scenery in Jamaica, traveling via Higgin Town and Claremont to the village of Nine Mile, a quaint little place in the beautiful mountains of St. Ann. It is here on the 6th of February 1945 the legendary “King of Reggae” was born and it is the very same place he was later laid to rest.

A tour of Nine Mile is a family affair as many of Bob’s close family live there, including his mother, affectionately known as Mother B and Uncle Lloyd, who tell tales of Bob’s Childhood.

The tour takes you through the house Bob lived in as a young boy and your Rastafarian guide will share with you little known insights into Bob Marley’s childhood and musical career. Stand on “Mount Zion Rock” where Bob used to meditate and rest your head on “the pillow” made famous in the song “Talking Blues”. Finally, walk through the mausoleum, which is his final resting place.

The return trip is a continuation of your excursion through rural Jamaica, as you wind your way through picturesque Lime Hall and St. Ann’s Bay back to the North Coast.

A must for all Bob Marley & Reggae music fans. “ONE LOVE”

Zion Bus Tour

Our authentic Jamaican Country Bus, the “Zion Bus Line”, will take you on a unique tour from Island Village in Ocho Rios, via Claremont to the birth and final resting place of the King of Reggae, Bob Marley. This pilgrimage has been specifically designed for Reggae enthusiasts and hardcore Bob Marley fans, who would like to visit the “Graceland” of Reggae.

The bus ride is a scenic tour of rural St. Ann. Rock to the rhythm of Bob’s greatest hits as your “dreadlocked” driver negotiates the narrow winding country roads to the mountain village of Nine Miles. Level the vibes with an IRIE Rum Punch and listen carefully as your “ductor” (conductor & guide) tells tales of the life and times of young Bob and how he grew up in the hills of St. Ann.

On the return trip via Higgin Town and St. Ann’s Bay, stop at the local Jerk Centre for an authentic Jamaican lunch treat of Jerk Pork & Chicken, Rice & Peas, Festival and “Belly Wash” Lemonade.

If you are a baby boomer who was hip to the 60’s & 70’s music of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff or if you are now a fan of Shaggy, Beenie Man and the Dance Hall phenomenon, this is a Reggae experience you can’t miss.

A MUST FOR EVERY REGGAE ENTHUSIAST! ! !

Canopy Tour

A new trail -- through lush jungle in the heart of the spectacular Cranbrook Flower Forest -- leads to the start of this unforgettable Chukka Cove Original Canopy Tour adventure. After instruction from extensively trained guides, you take a short nature walk to your 1st platform nestled on the hillside overlooking the treetops and jungle “canopy”. You begin your tour by soaring through the trees using an intricate system of harnesses, pulleys and carabiners on horizontal traverses, while gazing at the surrounding jungle until you arrive at the next Cliffside platform, 45 feet above the ground.

Nine traverses, from 105 feet to 660 feet apart, have you swinging through the Laughlands River gorge, a giant valley carved from the surrounding mountain by ancient waters (a sparkling river still flows through it). From your bird’s eye view, you’ll survey the flora and fauna of this magnificent landscape, all while listening to the gentle sounds of nature. At different points in the tour, you will even get a glimpse of the miles-away Caribbean Sea and learn interesting facts about the surrounding tree and plant life from our well informed guides.

After leaving the valley, you really fly, embarking on a series of long throws – with the last traverse being 600 feet long. Here, after removing your equipment, you unwind from your exhilarating adventure with a walk through the flowering trees of Cranbrook.

Kayak Tour

Your kayak tour takes you along the White River starting at The Old Spanish Bridge built by the first European settlers in the seventeenth century.

Paddle your way through the rapids and crystal clear pools under a canopy of lush tropical vegetation and huge bamboo groves.

At the halfway mark, the Arawak Gazebo is seen nestled in the trees on the bank of the river as you go floating by. Your excursion continues through breathtaking rapids and enchanting lagoons.

The kayaking adventure ends in the serenity of the Bamboo Cathedral where giant Bamboo trees arch over the water.

Disembark the river and enter the beautifully landscaped gardens of the White River Valley Park where you can browse our gift shop or indulge in Jamaican cuisine or be refreshed at the Parrot Bar.

River Valley Mountain Ride

The Pineapple Riding Stable is located within the heart of a floral paradise at White River Valley.

Here, experienced guides assist you to mount fine, majestic animals while acquainting you with their names (T-Grey, Moonstruck and Missile Crisis…). Saddle up for the ride of your life!

Your path meanders along the course of the river while the sound of streaming water creates background music for your listening pleasure. In the depths of the Cascade Rainforest, the sun plays hide and seek through the canopy of thick tropical foliage.

Make your full circle through the hills, passing through orchards and stop for a quick Jamaican style refreshment as you view the picturesque countryside from the Old Pimento (Allspice) House.

End your experience back at the floral paradise where you can browse our gift shop filled with unique Jamaican products or listen to Caribbean music while sipping a cold beverage at the Parrot Bar.

Stingray City Jamaica Tour

Stingray City Jamaica is located 25 minutes east of Ocho Rios. You will be transported by air-conditioned bus along the North coast to the picturesque town of Oracabessa. This unique name is derived from "Golden Head" which was the name given to this coastal town by the Spanish explorers to Jamaica back in the 1500s.

On arrival at our beautiful private peninsula you will be given a brief orientation and safety briefing to demonstrate the correct way to handle a Stingray. Then it is time to wade into the beautiful Caribbean sea to feed and pet these marine creatures. Equipped with complimentary snorkels and masks you can view with ease and comfort these magnificent and graceful Stingrays. Get to know your favorite ray by name and take a photo to prove your bravery to the folks back home
After your 45 minute interaction with the rays you can continue to relax by the bar, grab a snack at the grill, view your photos and browse the authentic Jamaican ware in our craft village until it is time to wave goodbye to the rays.
