The horseback riding in the sea is FANTASTIC, but the rest of the trip is HORRIBLE! First, the walk to the place to meet from the cruise ship is a long walk. Second, the lady tour guide is clueless on what she is doing. Third, the ride is nothing of what they describe. They do not tell you the bus ride is an hour each way along a lot of dirty streets and places. You see a few nice homes and beaches, but mostly TRASH. The tour guide lady takes an order for your lunch and takes your money, but she don't bother making sure you get your food. The food cost $30 for my family, and we did not get to eat. For the second ride in the sea, the lady tour guide had no organization to that. It took our third time before we got to ride. When the ride was over, we were supposed to have our food, but it was not ready yet, even though everyone else was eating. We received our food when it was time to get back on the bus. The bus was dirty, the food which was jerk chicken, rice and beans was DRY and DISGUSTING, so we did not eat. The lady tour guide knew we were very UNHAPPY, and the only thing she offered was one free drink to my Mom. We did not get our $30 back nor an apology even though we had to complain about everything. The horseback ride was in two parts. First, they have no organization with putting people on horses, either. They line you up with your family, then choose a horse for each rider, which separates all the family. They don't even know how to put the right horse with the right person. Big men were put on small horses, which is not fair to the horse. The workers were extremely SLOW bringing over the horses, so you stand in the hot sun for a long time. They then try to put families back together, which takes more time. The ride is on a dirt path that takes you to a small creek with trash all over. You cross the small creek and then ride into ankle deep water, unless you are small, and the water will come to your waist. You DO NOT see ruins of sugar plantations or anything else for that matter. The ride is short. The second ride is in the sea. You get on a horse bareback except for the cloth with a rope attached that you sit on. My horse went full speed through the water passing a lot of horses. It was an EXCILLERATING, FULL ADRENALINE RIDE that was one of the COOLEST things I have done, but it was also very TERRIFYING! I am not sure how safe it is because if you fell in the water, you are surrounded by horses. It is a FANTASTIC ride, though. I would recommend it for thrill seekers. The only two good things were the bus driver was nice, and the horseback riding was GREAT! They also have a small gift shop. You have to buy all your drinks, and they are EXPENSIVE! Gatorade and soda $3-4 for a small bottle. Read Less

Great excursion. Would have liked to have had the ship be more knowledgeable of what to expect so we knew to bring cash (and lots of it) for the food, lockers, tips, pictures and other things for purchase. Being a cruise endorsed excursion I was expecting to use a credit card for all purchases (and was able to for most, but not the tips). Wish RCCL would provide the exchange rates for local currencies and haggling policies before dropping us in the wild. Read Less

Very good tour, even though the day wasn't great. Bus driver and guide were so nice. Horseback riding was excellent and the staff was fun. Be sure to bring extra money, because you'll want it.

Lots of fun and riding horses in the surf is a very unique experience. Try to find friends here. The surf riding part is in small groups so you can trade cameras. Though they do sell photos here. They are kinda expensive and are given on a dvd. Most computers don't come with disk drives anymore. I suppose they would put it on a usb drive if you brought one. There is a place to change and lockers available ($5). Our bus driver kept the bus locked so you can keep things in there. Bring a change of clothes and water shoes. the 45 minute drive back would be uncomfortable if you are wet. Read Less

waited around for quite a while to finally go on the horseback riding tour. The people on the horses were good but the people managing the place nickel and dime you for everything. $5 for lockers. You can see the horses are very well taken care of and have a lot of freedom (old or hurt race horses who have been re purposed to go into the ocean and around the area) much better than being killed off and gives them some freedom and mental physical exercise.

We booked a private ride through an independent operator. The pickup and drop-off was convenient and was arranged by the operator. We trotted through open fields, plantations, heavily planted areas and finally on the beach. The swimming in water part wasnt as impressive as it sounded but nevertheless, the whole excursion was fun and we got to see the non-touristy country-side. I would recommend this for someone seeking some adventure. Read Less

How many people can say that they went horseback riding through the ocean in Jamaica?? We can! We really liked this excursion. The company, and the employees were great. We took a somewhat long bus ride from the ship to the horse farm but the guide was engaging and kept the trip fun. She was very knowledgeable and informative. The horseback riding was a lot of fun. We started with a dry land ride, then stopped for some really good lunch, and then got back on and went through the water. My husband got pooped on (poor horses can't help it), so definitely watch out for floating turds in the water portion. But, all in all, we really enjoyed it. Read Less
