Ocho Rios Highlights
These excursions last from 4 to 5 hours, and are typically paired with another exciting site, such as the Dunns River Falls. Most excursions also include those precious opportunities to shop for souvenirs.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $50 to $60
Booking Advice: Because of the walking involved, especially when you're out and about the Falls, these excursions are rated at a moderate activity level.
Jamaican Bobsledding and Mystic Mountain Tour
In that true vacation spirit, what could be more memorable than your very own jaunt down 3,280 ft. of twisting stainless steel track in your modified Jamaican Bobsled. In honor of Jamaica's Olympic bobsledding, Mystic Mountain developed this environmentally friendly ride, and (by the way) you can govern your speed as you descend so you can spy all the natural beauty surrounding you. Most excursions include ascending Dunns River Falls, a chairlift lift ride to your sled, a tram lift after you sled, and a chance to swim in the incredible infinity pool.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $99 to $126
Booking Advice: This activity, with the climbing and walking, is considered difficult so there are age and physical restrictions. Third party vendors provide some nove deals and excursion variety.
Horseback Riding and Dunns River Falls
You'll have a variety of options for Dunns River Falls Expeditions, including this very popular one! After an air conditioned bus ride along the Jamaican coast, you'll arrive outside of Ocho Rios and have that opportunity to climb Dunns River Falls' 600 ft. Follow that up with your “Horseback Ride & Swim” along Chukka Beach!
Price: Adults expect to pay from $135
Booking Advice: This excursion receives a moderate rating on the activity scale, and is quite popular with teens. A waterproof camera is recommended! Third party vendors advertise this activity at significant savings.
Jamaican Style Tubing
On these excursions, you'll be floating down those enchanting Jamaican rivers. (Along the Martha Brae River, there's that possibility that you'll see precious stones!) This excursion last for about 2.5 hours.
Price: Adults to pay $79
Booking Advice: Because this activity is rated as moderate in terms of activity level, there are age and physical restrictions. Cruise line prices are quite competitive with third party vendors.
These excursions last from 4 to 6 hours, and typically pair up with a visit to Dunns River Falls. At Dolphin Cove, where you can see other marine life as well, you'll be given an information about dolphins before your encounter. Swims are usually 30 minutes long.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $95 (for dophin encounters), and up to $160 (for dolphin swims).
Booking Advice: The actual swim with the dolphins lasts for around 30 minutes. While dolphins are familiar with our species, always pay close attention to instructions before encounters because dolphins are not pets.
