Blue Hole and Secrets Falls from Ocho Rios

The Blue Hole and Secret Falls is probably the most sought after tourist attraction in Ocho Rios.

There are many unknown waterfalls in Jamaica, but the secret in Ocho Rios is the most accessible one. Travel east of the Ocho Rios town for approximately 4 miles, pass through local communities and then head into the rural hills until we get to the remote Irie Blue & Secret Falls attraction. The Blue Hole is deep and a lot of fun for good swimmers and divers of all ages. The White River’s blue hazy water adds to the beauty of the surroundings.

Included in this attraction for thrill seekers is a Tarzan Rope swing after which you can jump in the river pool, you may explore small caves, climb behind the water falls, go cliff diving into the river, hike along the river and get covered in clay from the river bank. Bask in the sun, enjoy the cool breeze in the hills, and spend a day in the Jamaican bush enjoying the beautiful surroundings away from the crowds associated with larger tourist attractions.

This is an off the beaten track attraction that supports the local economy, you will be assisted with guides and trained life guards as you go through the property, they are eager to help you enjoy this one of a kind attraction. Bathrooms facilities and changing rooms are also available at the Secret Falls. We guarantee that you will enjoy this experience, consider it to be your #1 attraction and go away with many memories of adventure and fun.

    Hello,

    Our trip to the Blue Hole and Secret Falls was better than Dunn’s River Falls.

    Seemed that everywhere we went in Jamaica we encountered rude people, we were very disheartened….and then we met all of the very nice people at the Blue Hole and Secret Falls.

    Our taxi driver was on time and had the van nice and cool. He told us about the history of things as we drove past them. On the way back to our resort, he stopped at a store for souvenirs and even at a pharmacy for us.

    Our guide’s name was either big T or little T, I cannot remember but I know he was tall and had a great smile, happy personality and a lot of energy! He made the experience so much fun. Someone should give him a pay raise! He took time, didn’t rush us and interacted with us throughout.

    Everyone we encountered at the Blue Hole and Secret Falls was courteous and friendly. Even the man who was building something in the area down by the restrooms. He was working very hard out in the hot sun and still managed a smile and friendly conversation.

    I will be telling anyone I know who might be going to Jamaica to book this tour with your company, and to ask for big or little T as their guide!!

    Hi Dwight,

    This was an awesome tour and I will highly recommend it on TripAdvisor. There were only 4 people in our tour group and the guide was exceptional. I will recommend anyone booking trips make sure they are small and allow guests to enjoy the excursion.

    Our driver was Eric, and he was amazing! We had a miscommunication with the location and name of the excursion in the beginning but he just reassured the group that it was okay and he knew exactly where to go and would get us there. He even went as far as switching the van to ensure our safety. He managed to keep our whole group entertained and laughing and for that we are thankful to have such a driver. When we return to Ocho Rios, we will definitely ask for him to be our driver to our next excursion.
    Loved his slogan: “In Jamaica there’s no problems, just situations!”

    Thank you for contacting us regarding our tour. We had a wonderful time! Ryan was an exemplary driver and guide. He was friendly, fun and accommodating. Our guide at the blue hole (Fireman) was also excellent. They took very good care of us. Though I was concerned about connection (both to find our tour operator and getting back to the ship) my fears peoved to be unfounded as we easily found Ryan and he got us back to port with plenty of time to spare.
    Thank you,

    Thank you so much for the tour. My friends and I really enjoyed it. The bus driver was awesome! He took us to the tour and a restaurant after. He also helped us order food and do the Jamaican to USD money conversion. The actual blue hole tour guides were so nice! They took lovely pictures and helped us climb the falls. They even encouraged us to jump off the cliffs even though some of us were deathly afraid. The whole blue hole staff was outstanding! I would definitely do this again!
    Thank you!

    Hi Dwight,
    Thank you for asking about our experience. The Blue Hole & Secret Falls excursion was the highlight of our entire trip. There were 11 of us in our party. 3 of our family members had intended to just observe and not participate in the excursion, but our guides were AMAZING and took great care of my elderly parents and physically challenged nephew. We all had a most wonderful time, and were very grateful that our guides went out of their way to assure that all of us were involved and had a great experience. They even filmed and photographed the experience for us with our cameras. They treated us as if we were family. So grateful.
    God bless,

    The transport driver was really personable and knowledgeable about the area. It was also nice to be picked up in a nice car instead of the typical old buses. I would definitely use you guys again and will spread the word to anyone I know heading to Jamaica. And as a bonus, you guys are a little cheaper than the typical Island Routes company. As a side note, we did the Blue Hole and had Sam as our personal tour guide. He did an amazing job, and because it was personal, we were able to do a lot more things on the falls than the big groups that were coming in. Also the river tubing was nice and relaxing, as this was a personal tour as well.

    Thanks,

    My group and I enjoyed the Blue Hole Tour soooooooooooooooo much. Sheldon(I called him Uncle Sheldon lol) took such great care of us. I couldn’t have asked for a better driver. He kept us safe and made sure we were satisfied.

    Glen and O’Shane were amazing. Glen and O’Shane were very knowledgeable and patient with everyone while going through the falls. Glen captured some amazing photos of my group and I that will last a lifetime.

    I couldn’t have picked a better excursion, my group gave me kudos so thanks! lol

    I have already recommended Karandas Tours to my family and friends and I will definitely be back!

    THANKS AGAIN!!

    Hello,

    We had a great trip with your company . We were the ones with the trunks of our son forgotten on the boat, sending the driver back was most generous, didn’t lasted very long, but your understanding was magnificent ! We had Robert as a driver. In a word, great! We enjoyed the trip and at the blue hole (they were great. The best) and the waterfalls, everyone liked and will recommend you. We love Jamaica !

    Dear Mr. Soares,

    My husband Gaston, son Julien and I had the pleasure of going to Fern Gully Blue hole with your driver Steve on Thursday, April 28.

    He was most helpful and told us he would bring us to the “best” Blue Hole. We had looked one up on Internet before booking and were very surprised to find that the location he took us to experience was superior to what we had seen.

    On the way, he told us about the history of Jamaica, pointed out some of the native plants, trees, etc. and made the journey educational and interesting. He was a careful driver and we did not really feel the few rough spots.

    We had told him that we did not need to go to a laundry, as first requested, since the Jewel resort has now a facilily for this purpose for their guests.

    When we arrived, he introduced us to a young guide whose name we cannot recall, unfortunately, but he offered to take photos for us and guided my husband and son through the 3 different diving areas of the site.

    The guide was also very polite and helpful and we will be pleased to recommend your services to any of our friends who plan a trip to Jamaica in the future.

    Thank you again for the wonderful memories!

    Lola T☺

    We had a wonderful time in Jamaica. Our driver was Steve and he was great! He was very knowledgeable on the history of the island and the culture and we were fascinated by all of the facts he gave us. He exceeded our expectations and safely got us to our destinations even in the downpour of rain going up the mountain to the Blue Hole. I also appreciate how professional and timely the planning of the trip went with you Dwight, thank you very much. I did complete a TripAdvisor review a couple of days ago singing your praises!

    Thanks again and I will be sure to share your information any chance I have.

    Hello –

    Our tour was FANTASTIC!!

    I don’t have any complaints at all.

    The drivers ( we had two ) were so friendly and responsible. Their instructions were very clear, and we always felt like we were in good hands.

    I would HIGHLY suggest everyone visit the Blue Hole while in Jamaica.

    I will most definitely use your company again if we come back to Jamaica.

    Have a wonderful day,

    Hi Dwight,

    I just wanted to let you know we had a blast on our excursion and would recommend it to anyone. Our entire experience was positive and we had no negative comments to provide. Our driver, Uton, was great and provided a ton of great information on the way to the excursion. Our tour guide, Daniel, was wonderful and we were grateful with all his help moving around our 5-year-old daughter, Lilly, through the falls on the parts she couldn’t participate in.

    The only comments we had were I wish we had a little more time at the falls to swim in the water. The other comment was our driver told us we could not bring cameras or anything that can’t get wet on the trip, however, many of the other groups brought cameras and cell phones to take pictures and videos of their excursion. Unfortunately, we missed out on that opportunity because we were told we were not allowed to take cameras.

    Overall, we had a great time and thought this was a truly unique experience and I was completely satisfied with it! Thanks for the great time!

He even stopped at scotchies on the way back to our resort for us to get lunch. The guide at blue hole was great too. He had tons of energy and made the excursion a lot of fun! The booking process was simple too. I would recommend blue hole and your tour group to anyone traveling to Jamaica.

Sheldon went above and beyond to show us a wonderful time in Jamaica. He was very informative, personal, and fun. I don’t think we could have experienced a better time. The excursion was very fun as well. It exceeded my expectations for sure. It was definitely worth it, and I hope to come back soon to do some more excursions with your company.

    We absolutely loved our karandas Tours with Sheldon and Glenn at the blue hole. Pick up was easy and the tour was perfect. Should have done more while we were there! Will definitely recommend and use again if we find ourselves in Jamaica! My daughter was upset when Sheldon didn’t pick us up in Grand Cayman. She thought it would be him the rest of the trip. He wrote his name on her hand so she wouldn’t forget (her request). Thanks!!!

    Upon our arrival at Blue Hole, we were met by Mike. The 2 seemed to know each other and worked together as a great team.

    We never felt unsafe on the tour or with our belongings. They were both great with the kids.

    Again, everything we smooth and as planned.

    Our trip with you to blue hole was the highlight of my vacation. We were picked up at our ship by a wonderful man named Steve who was our driver. He was kind and funny and upbeat and fun to be with. He drove carefully while explaining where we were and where we were going. I love going up into the hills and the adventure of the rough roads. When we arrived at Blue Hole I felt completely safe leaving my belongings in the van with Steve. We were handed off to a very special young man named Dylan who brought us to the Falls. What fun, incredible, amazing adventure going from one jumping whole to the next. It was wonderful how the height of the jumps started small and increased little by little until I was jumping from quite a height. Each step along the way I felt very well taken care of by Dylan an unbelievably safe. Dylan’s nickname is Spiderman and I can see why he was so agile and Light footed jumping from one place to the other along the river. I haven’t had so much fun in years. I look forward to coming back to Jamaica again and in trusting the care of my time there to Karandas tour’s and the wonderful people they have working with them!!! I Love You Guys!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for an amazing day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our excursion to the Blue Hole was excellent. My wife, 2 children (7 and 10 years old) and myself had an amazing time cliff jumping, going behind waterfalls and on the Tarzan swing. The guides at the Blue Hole were fun and they paid particular attention to my children to make sure they were safe and having fun. I booked this excursion because I wanted something different and less commercial then the Dunn’s River Falls and this certainly did not disappoint. Our guide gave us a little taste of Jamaica answering questions and giving us background info on Jamaica. Great excursion–lots of fun and definitely an experience we’ll remember.
