The Blue Hole is divided into two sections. There is the main Blue Hole with its turquoise Blue waters that just begs you to jump in. The view is surreal. If you are feeling adventurous there is a Tarzan swing you can use. The other section of the Blue Hole is the waterfall section. This waterfall is around 20 feet in height. There is a path that runs along the river. You will rejoin the river further upstream. The waterfall is a 7-minute walk from the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is somewhere you want to relax and inhale the beauty that surrounds you. Explore, take a dip, check out the cave, and swing on the Tarzan rope swing. Good for the whole family, and brings the child out in everyone.
Next, you're off for the famous Dunn's River Falls. When you arrive you will hear the gush of water as you approach the series of steps. Your experienced Dunns River Falls Excursion guide will give you tips before your group heads up. You will link arms and use the rocks as a natural ladder to weave your way up to the top. If you'd prefer not to climb, you can simply relax and swim at the foot of the falls. You'll discover many cool plunge pools as you continue upwards. At the top, you might even have the chance to get a massage in one of the pools or do that below when you swim under the rushing waters.
Dunn's River Falls is an astounding flowing fall that extends across more than 183 meters or 600 feet. The falls are frequently featured in tourist advertisements that endorse Jamaica. These ads make Dunn's River Falls one of the most well-liked travel destinations on the island. Another remarkable point is that the Dunn's River is one of the few rivers in the world that flows directly into the Caribbean Sea. The most popular activity is climbing up the falls and then hanging out in one of the several lagoons or pools along the way.
Dunn's River Falls was also featured in the James Bond Movie "Dr. No". Ian Fleming, who is the author of the James Bond movies, fell in love with Jamaica while visiting the island for a naval meeting and spent several winters there at his property. The movie included the well-known scene of Ursula Andress walking out on Jamaica's famous Dunn's River beach. The waterfalls are located near the town of Ocho Rios.
The climbing of Dunn's River Falls has been done by the locals as well as so many tourists for so long that it is quite easy to believe that the waterfall was made for climbing. However, in truth and fact, Dunn's River Falls is natural and all of the structures, crevices, and natural pools of water were made by the actual flow of the water's current.
When you have to go, remember, it's not over yet. You'll have the chance to browse through the Dunn's River Falls craft market for unique souvenirs, many of which were created by the locals, or buy lunch to go (at your own expense). After this unique adventure combo excursion, you'll be brought back to your Ocho Rios cruise ship pier.
