About
Consisting of a series of natural limestone pools, the Blue Hole is a hidden gem that captivates travelers with its azure waters. It offers quite the adventure: swim in the pools, go cliff-jumping, swing from ropes into the waters, explore a cave, and take a 10-minute hike to the Secret Falls. There are bathrooms and changing rooms onsite, with lockers and lifejackets available for rent. There aren’t much crowds at the Blue Hole, especially from mid-morning onwards. The waterfall is best visited with a tour from Montego Bay or Ocho Rios, which often includes the option to also visit Dunn’s River Falls, or go river tubing. – Tripadvisor

    The Highlight of Jamaica
    After doing the rafting along White River we drove up to Blue Hole. It was a little tricky to find but a local who worked up there led the way on his motorcycle and then he gave us the full tour experience and took photos and videos of us too. If you can ask for Tristan Mitchell, he was amazing and super helpful and encouraging to our teen daughter who was nervous to jump in some of the spots. This took over an hour and life vests are available if you need. Water shoes are a must. Blue Hole is even more beautiful than a Dunn’s River and it has deep water holes to jump or dive into. Just breathtaking. It cost $15 USD to get in and you tip your guide anything from $60 to $150 depending on your group size and how much you enjoyed yourself. There are numerous spots to jump from - your guide will tell you if you need to water bomb, jump feet first or dive, depending on the water depth. There was also a cave to swim into under a waterfall and give yourself a mud bath and a rope swing to fly off into the water. This was just so much fun, if you don’t have time for anything else you must do this!!!!

    Beautiful and Fun Excursion
    We went to Blue Hole in January of 2020. I went with my boyfriend, and my mom. We combined the trip with Mystic Mountain. We went to Blue Hole first thing in the morning. The water was a beautiful blue, and extremely refreshing! The views were outstanding. First we climbed up the water fall, then made our way down it. The guide was great, we jumped off of many cliffs into deep water, and even did the rope swing! It was a super fun trip, and we would for sure do it again. Don’t forget your water shoes!!! You do need them. If you do forget them, you can purchase them before you get to the hole, they’re sold for $15!

    Hidden Gem in Jamaica - Blue Hole
    The Blue Hole is located in Jamaica's White River Valley. It is located between St Ann and Sr Mary's parishes. If you take a taxi from the Ocho Rios cruise port, expect approximately a 20 minute drive. The Blue Hole creates cascades of waterfalls approx. 20-25 feet. It is a great excursion for swimmers, hikers and thrill seekers. Plan on wearing swimwear and water shoes. It would be a good idea to also bring a towel and a waterproof phone pouch so you can capture some great pictures. Lockers are available for an extra cost. Park entrance fee is $20 American dollars per adult. We were told that we needed a guide to walk us through the area and we tipped him a few dollars per person.

Too beautiful for words. But I believe the locals should have free or extreme reduced rates to get in. Seems like they are getting shut out of this and other beautiful sites in their homeland. Students should get in for free for sure to encourage locals to take pride in Jamaica's beauty.

My son and I went to the blue hole and tubing experience. I had a great time. We had so much fun. My son gained so much confidence from jumping and doing flips into the water I was so proud of him. It was beautiful even on a rainy day. Our guides were great too! Romain and Lindo(sp) were so fun. If you're reading this...I'm on Facebook... friends for life! haha Definitely would book this excursion if you are thinking of going to this area.

The blue hole is beautiful and jumping in was lots of fun for our group. Lots of walking, slippery rocks, etc. but that’s what you’d expect from this type of excursion. Our guide was amazing from beginning to end!

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR! Would 100% recommend! The water is crystal clear and cool, the guides are fun and knowledgeable and the experience is unforgettable. We would come back to Jamaica and spend an entire day at the Blue Hole if we could. Loved every second of this experience and will definitely be back!

We didn’t even take any photos because we were just enjoying the experience too much! Love love loved it!

Love, love, loved this place. Our tour guide was the best. Even though our family was a little disfunctional, he understood and still took us through. Recommended 10/10. Wish I remembered the tour guides name.

We had the most wonderful experience at the blue hole Aug 10th. Would definitely recommend!!! Our tour guide Javier made it all the more better and made our experience so special. He was amazing, he made sure we felt safe, and we felt VIP at all times in his care. Can’t say enough great things about the blue hole and especially our tour guide Javier.
