Falmouth Irie Blue Hole Excursion Reviews

This 20 foot cascading waterfall is definitely a hidden gem in the hills of Ocho Rios. The blue hazy waters are deep enough for the exhilarating cliff jumps & dives, and children enjoy the Tarzan Rope Swing.
Excellent private tour provided.

While the Blue Hole experience (climbing the falls and jumping into the water) was wonderful, the drive of over two hours each way, much of it over bumpy, undeveloped roads, was unnerving.

This excursion included a 90 minute ride to the Irie Blue Hole and White River (tubing) on which our Chukka guide, GraceAnn, offered commentary and incredible information the whole way. At one point, on the way home, a man on the street was selling bunches of guinep (spanish lime), and she bought some to share with everyone on the bus so we could try it. She was awesome! It was a great way to feel like we were actually seeing and learning about some of the country beyond just visiting the port and an excursion point. It was a rainy day, but nothing more than light showers. The Blue Hole was pretty adventurous, but the guides were all so supportive and encouraging - yet never pushed you to do something you weren't fully comfortable with. The same was true of tubing on the White River. The jerk chicken & rice lunch with fruit or rum punch (included in the tour) were FAB-U-LOUS!! Probably my favorite meal of the whole week! The only issue we had were that the roads near blue hole & the river are VERY poor, and our bus driver hit one large bump way too fast (purely by accident) and my 12-year-old (who could be knocked over by a stiff breeze) actually lifted out of his seat enough that he hit his head on the luggage rack above. In fairness, he later admitted that he did not buckle his seat belt as we had all been requested by the guide and driver to do...but just be advised that these are very narrow, very bumpy roads, so you might think twice before taking your very young (I think they have to be 6) children on this tour. We had a fantastic time, though, branched out of our comfort zone, and I feel like - in large part to GraceAnn - we had a cultural experience that went well beyond the typical stop in port. Read Less

After a fun ride (1hr and 20 min) in which he talked about Jamaica history, vegetation, government and way of living, we arrived at The Blue Hole, which wasn't crowded as Dunn's River Falls is. The place is beautiful! we met Javier our guide who took great care of us. We had a blast! Read Less

In Jamaica we hired a driver through Native Tours. Our guide KJ met us at the port in an air condition mini van . He was wonderful and full of local knowledge. Great attitude and extremely helpful. By the time we arrived at our first destination, we all felt like we all had a better understanding of Jamaica , its economy and its people. Our itinerary was Blue Hole and Dunn River Falls and Native Tours handled the ticket purchase at both destinations for us as part of the package. Blue Hole was incredible. We were met by a local guide there and he took us through the property . It was breathtaking , minimally developed and looked straight off a movie set. Amazing! Dunn River Falls, not so much. Where Blue Hole was natural and minimally developed, Dunn River Falls was completely developed, with paved parking lots and ticket Kiosks straight out of Disneyland or Universal Studios. Blue Hole we had a guide for our family, Dunn River we were in a group of 40+ . Blue Hole we had time to take in the natural splendor and enjoy the experience , whereas Dunn River we were hustled from one spot or another then made to wait while the camera man took pictures of everyone to try and sell them the images afterwards. Night and Day experience and if we could do it over again we would have skipped the falls and spent all our time at Blue Hole. Afterwards we asked KJ to take us to a locals eatery and had some awesome jerk chicken, pork, curried goat, and local sides like festival . We were back to the port with 45 mins to spare. What a great day! Read Less

Steve picked us up in the port, it was a little hard to find the independet tours tent but if you ask around they'll help you find it. Steve took us to the blue hole, which took little over an hour. If you're scared of heights, don't take this excursion because the ride was pretty impressive. Little T was our guide for the Blue hole. He was great and encouraged us to dive from the falls, which was an amazing experience. The water was a little cold but it was definitely worth it. The place is just amazing.They have diving spots from different heights and even have a tarzan rope. Read Less

This was great! We had about 5 holes to jump in and they just kept getting higher!!! Kids loved it. Take tip $$. River tubing was nice, food at the end was very good. It was an hour and a half drive. A bit too long. No time to do any shopping. This was better than Dunn river falls. I'd do blue hole again if I didn't have to be on a bus (we docked in Falmouth, it's a much shorter drive from Ocho rios) Read Less

We had a great private tour to Dunn's River Falls and Blue Hole with Native Tours. They provided all transportation, a driver (Odean) and entry to both attractions. We had separate guides at each attraction (we didn't have to pay for those guides, but we did tip each of them). Blue Hole is great if you want to swim and jump off of small cliffs. It's much less crowded than Dunn's River Falls and more interactive. Read Less

We booked a trip to the Blue Hole with Chris Jamaica Tours. It was fantastic. Our driver, Olando, was great. Not only was there the benefit of personal transportation but he kept the "brownie sellers" at bay, which we appreciated. The Blue Hole was so much fun and so beautiful. However, it was more crowded than I expected. I hope it doesn't turn into Dunn's River Falls 2. We stopped for a very delicious Jamaican jerk meal on the way home. Chris was great at responding to my emails. I would highly recommend his company. Read Less
