Use Amity Tours in Jamaica. Ricardo kept the whole family safe and provided everything we asked for and more from the ship port in Ocho Rios!!!!!! He was on time and got us to our port on time. He also provided drinks on the excursion. He is so down to earth and his company has a five star rating on trip advisor. Very hardworking individual and so glad we found him.
This port is small and clean. You have to have the ship card to get in and out. That makes it safe. I will say that things are not clearly labeled within the port. I feel as though that could be the tour companies fault. It can hectic. We went to the Blue Hole with Real Jamaica Tours. It was wonderful. My family feels this was the best excursion we have ever done. We got to see a good bit of Jamaica. We ate at Scotchies. The best jerk chicken. Perfect day!
The people were surprisingly nice.

I liked this port. It's always tons of shopping, but this looked like a lot of local shopping - which was different from all the other ports with tons of jewelry stores. We did the Dunn's River and Party boat excursion. When I tell you that was thee most fun I've had in a long time..even though I sprained my ankle, I still had a good time. Rum punch makes you feel nothing!! lol

A MUST is the Dunn's River Falls climb! Absolutely beautiful and ask for E. Hall as your guide up the river, he will definitely take care of you.

Had a blast with a group of 11 ranging from 3 year old to 35. We are Freelancers in any port as it’s usually cheaper. We hired a taxi bus for $250 round trip with wait. He took us to Blue Hole. He talked us thru our trip up in to the mountains, about a 20 minute drive. Once we arrived at Blue Hole, there was a $10 fee. ($5 less than we were told). The tour guide there was awesome. Made everyone feel comfortable enough to jump & took pics. We spent about 2-3 hours there. Driver then offered to take us to Jerk Center, which we declined due to trying to get back on ship before the rush. The haggling wasn’t as bad as some make it seem to be. Just don’t make eye contact, a simple no thank you and ignoring them worked out well.
To those who were harassed or thought this port was bad, must have been in the wrong places! We booked tour with Dwight with Karanda Tours online. He picked us up at port, took us in a nice van to Island Gully aka Blue Hole. We then met with guide Little T who gave us the best experience of my life! Be prepared to fall in love wi h Jamaica as you climb the waterfalls just to cliff jump back down. Very safe and clean. Not once did I feel threatened, harassed, or uncomfortable. Little T doesn’t allow the local crap. He’ll tell them to flip sand. All this for $35 an adult. At bottom of falls you can have a drink and they’ll send photos they took for you.
We chose not to book an excursion at this port. I read online there was a nice beach to the left of the port within walking distance so we brought our snorkel gear and set foot! Found a gentlemen to take us into the beach. It was $3 for each of us to get in which wasn’t the bad part. The bad part is we were heckled almost every ten minutes for the first hour! After explaining we didn’t want drugs or to get our hair braided they finally left us alone to enjoy the beach. We left after about three hours to shop and to find authentic jerk chicken at Mr. James Jerk Chicken!!!! We were heckled by taxi drivers, drug dealers and hair braiders.
