Montego Bay Highlight – Marine Park Experience

Take a cruise  to the Montego Bay Marine Park which is one of three Marine Protected Areas (MPAs): the Bogue Island Lagoon Special Fishery Conservation Area (Bogue Lagoon) and the Montego Bay Marine Park Special Fishery Conservation Area (Airport Point).

These areas encompass over 15 square kilometres of mixed use coast habitat and benefit from comprehensive legal protection that regulates acceptable use.  At their heart, these MPAs seek to balance the social and economic needs of the community while safeguarding precious national resources for future generations.

Administered by the National Environmental Protection Agency and the Fisheries Division, these resources are managed on a day-to-day basis by the Montego Bay Marine Park Trust.

Rose Hall Great House Night Tour

The greatest of Jamaican great houses, the Rose Hall Great House has a story with all the elements of an engaging novel. Built in 1770 by John Palmer and his wife, it eventually became the residence of their grandnephew, John Rose Palmer. In 1820, Palmer married Annee, a beautiful but feisty English girl.

Little did John know that his young wife possessed “black magic” powers that would eventually lead to his demise. During her reign as mistress of the plantation, Annee did away with two more husbands and countless lovers. “The White Witch of Rose Hall” has fascinated generations, and even today, there are those who claim to see Annee passing through the Great House.

Walk with your pleasant and knowledgeable Tour Guides as they take you back in time, as far back as during the time of slavery, sugar plantation and great houses. You will be given a personal ‘introduction’ to Annie Palmer, the White Witch of Rose Hall. You will be left in awe as the story unfolds … a legend made up of scary stories, cowardice, a mastermind of trickeries and the eventful bravery that led to some degree of “freedom”.

Luminous Lagoon – Glistening Waters

glisterning water

One of the world’s largest concentrations of bio–luminescent microorganisms exists at Luminous Lagoon at Glistening Waters in Falmouth, Jamaica.

 Each day at sunset, there are nightly boat tours of the famous Luminous Lagoon. You will see things that will make you appreciate the beauty Mother Nature has created for us to witness and experience! Truly, a sight to be seen!

 This lagoon, surrounded by mangroves, is home to microscopic organisms that emit a bio – luminescent light when agitated. The water glows a beautiful blue and becomes illuminated when these organisms are disturbed. As the fish in the lagoon swim and dart around, you can see their outlines as streaks of light, shooting around in the darkness of night. When it rains, the lagoon ‘lights up’ with the drops of water dancing on the surface. Truly an amazing experience!

Martha Brae Rafting

As the traditional process is still followed today, visitors to Appleton Estates get a demonstration of the traditional process of extraction of the cane juice, which is later, fermented into the end product….. RUM!

Cockpit Country Hike

cockpit country

Jamaica’s last remaining wilderness, Cockpit Country is a rugged, natural paradise located in the heart of the island.  Hundreds of species found nowhere else in the world make their home in Cockpit Country and its unique geology has created countless caves, waterfalls and towering cliffs for visitors to view and explore.  The 73,000 Jamaicans in 66 communities living in and around Cockpit Country have created a cultural heritage whose warmth and friendliness is unparalleled. 

As the location of many of the first Maroon settlements and the battlefield and ally for Maroon fighters in Jamaica’s earliest independence struggles, Cockpit Country is one of the final bastions for the old-time culture of the Jamaican countryside, which is disappearing in today’s modern world.  The rich heritage and natural history are kept alive today with crafts, food, art, music and humanity of Cockpit Country’s residents. 

Explore one of the world’s most unique natural areas through Cockpit Country. Take a relaxing hike into Cockpit Country on the Burnt Hill Nature Walk.  The hike is a trek from Kinloss in the north Cockpit Country to Spring Garden in the south Cockpit Country. This is a 12-mile hike from an elevation of 700ft to 1600ft. It is an opportunity to see the landscape of Cockpit Country, observe the endemic species, understand the ecology, learn about the medicinal herbs, get insights into the local folklore of Maroon traditions and most of all have fun.

Blue Mountain Hike

It’s about 2:00am and pitch black. A crisp breeze blows the sleep out of your eyes, and you flick on your flashlight. It shines with a dull orange glow, illuminating a fraction of a rugged path. Muscles tight, and bones creaking in the cold, you begin your hike – a seven-mile trek up to the Blue Mountain Peak. The peak is the highest on the island, rising to an altitude of 7,402 feet. In the darkness you climb steadily for four hours. Guided by your flashlight and clinging to the mountain wall, you forge ahead. The way is narrow and steep, especially at a part known as Jacob’s Ladder. But one by one, you conquer each little hurdle. With every step up, the stars seem to get closer. As you near the top, the dark outline of the forest grows on either side, and sometimes the silvery outline of a tree fern catches your eye. Then, the morning light begins to break through the shadows. It becomes a race against the sun. You fight hard to keep going, distracted by the spectacular views that are unfolding. With a sigh of relief you reach the peak. The sun rises over the mist-laced mountains surrounding you. On a clear day, you can see Buff Bay and Port Antonio’s Navy Island to the North, and Kingston, Portmore and St Thomas’ coast to the south. You might even spot the shadowy form of Cuba, 90 miles to the north. As the strong wind whips around you and the day becomes brighter, you sit seemingly on top of the world, and certainly atop all of Jamaica, knowing you have just conquered The Peak.
