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

    Amazing experience, a must!
    Thank you for an amazing 5 star day trip. Really couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Blue hole was truly stunning and exhilarating. Highly recommend to everyone. Our tour guide was the great, ask for Robert Jnr. He made us feel safe abd confident to do the jumps and gave us the absolutely best time. I really couldn’t recommend enough. Water shoes / towel and change of clothes needed.

    Couples Experience
    We hired a driver and he took us to various places. First place we visit was Blue Hole, amazing experience and highly recommend it. Our tour guide (Nick) was the best. He guided us through out the entire mountain and took pictures of us in the entire fall. Was very informative with the history of the cove, plant descriptions, etc. highly recommend it

    Blue Hole Experience
    I have never ever jumped off any cliff into a body of water before. The vibe out there is amazing and comforting! Tour guides Fabien and Javi made me feel really comfortable and safe. They helped me with one of my biggest fears! I will definitely be back

    Skip Dunes River, go to blue hole!
    What a fabulous trip! Skip Dunes River and do this! Very adventurous yet doable! Javier was absolutely the best guide! So attentive and friendly! Can’t say enough about how terrific he is! Make sure the blue hole is on your list! We got to Dunes river, the lines, so touristy, before you start the guide starts to tell you, you treat me right with money, I treat you right. Then the photographer comes in and starts his spiels about the cost of having him take pictures and email them to you. Major turn off. My guess is th guide would have gotten a blot of tips without making those comments. Never heard anything about a tip at the blue hole. I guarantee you, the guide at the blue holeJavier was compensated well because of the great job he did! The entire van we were with, decided to go back to our hotels after we saw the dunes river falls, they are beautiful. We were totally happy without doing the climb with the hundreds of other people. Just my thoughts.

    Exhilarating Morning at Blue Hole!
    Our morning at Blue Hole in Ocho Rios was simply fantastic. We were led down to the stunning waterfalls by a friendly guide who took a series of great photos for us. While we personally chose not to participate in the cliff jumps (they are optional), they definitely promise a significant adrenaline surge - perfect for the more daring visitors. Visiting in the off-season and early in the morning made our experience much more peaceful, as the place tends to get crowded later in the day and during cruise ship season. If you’re planning a visit, we highly recommend aiming for an early start to your day.

    Don’t skip! One of the best experiences.
    We weren’t that bothered about coming here but we got it as a deal alongside Dunn’s river. We were so glad we done the blue hole as it was one of our favourite experiences. It was so much fun, the guides were so helpful and fun to be with and which boosted the whole vibe with the group. If it isn’t on your excursion list I’d definitely recommend to add it.

    Great experience!
    What an amazing place to visit! The Blue Hole isn't just the pool of water. if you go with a guide, they will take you up the mountain along a trail that leads to other waterfalls and places where you can jump. If you don't want to jump, you can just enjoy swimming in the water. Dino was our guide and he was the best! He was so patient with us, and very kind.

We had a super visit here! Stunning scenery, breathtaking setting!

We were shown around as a group by a guide, he was very supportive and helpful.

There were opportunities to take park in jumps into pools from different heights and there was also a rope swing.

We were all kitted out with life jackets, so felt very safe and gave a bit more comfort once jumped in.

Only improvement would have been to have gone around a little slower (felt a bit rushed and mechanic at times) as there was a lot to take in and you can only jump once at each location as seems to be a one way system. Guess this is all to enable the whole volume of people traffic to pass through.

Took me out of my comfort zone, but loved it!

The guides at the Blue Hole were amazing! They were very friendly and helpful. We liked that the water was warm and refreshing and couldn't wait to just jump right in!

we had a great time on an excursion with Andre as our guide. Due to maintenance, we couldn't go behind the waterfall, but it was still awesome! Andre made sure I felt comfortable despite my fear of heights, while my husband had fun jumping. We preferred the Blue Hole over Dunn's River Falls for its peaceful atmosphere and short waits. Thanks for the memorable experience!

We did this excursion in March 2024, our tour guide Andre was fantastic. The only downside was a repair was being done on the hydro pipe resulting in us being unable to go behind the waterfall and up the river a little. It was still awesome! I'm nervous of heights and Andre made sure I was comfortable. My boyfriend jumped multiple times. We didn't feel rushed. He had been to Dunn's river falls on a previous trip and enjoyed the Blue Hole more. It wasn't crowded and the waits were minimal.
Thank you very much for the great experience!

It was amazing. Javier was our guide and he made the experience so much fun. He even jumped in the water to find the cruise ship medallion that fell off one of us. We all really had a great time

The views are beautiful and the water is stunning. However, the staff are horrendous myself and my cousin came to visit and we have never felt so uncomfortable. Our tour guide was rude, pushy and arrogant. He made us feel like we weren’t safe! After the first jump he asked us if we had boyfriends and when we said yes he said he was better and could please us more. This made us feel uncomfortable the whole way around. He continuously pushed us to look at stalls. He made what should be a beautiful relaxing trip so horrible. Another couple who were with us commented on how weird he was with us.

At the end of the time (which was only 45mins) we felt completely unsafe and horrified at the things we had experienced on a PAID tour!!! When we returned to the to car park, our driver instantly noticed him being weird. We tipped him as we felt obligied too and he told us it wasn’t enough and wanted more (our driver stepped on at this point). As our driver sorted this, we went to use the changing rooms and on our exit he had waited and cat called us… again!

The experience was completely ruined by the guide. Who made us feel so unsafe and on edge (after doing many excursions whilst here we haven’t felt this way before!). If you’re a young female do NOT go on this trip.

Very crowded, chaotic and underwhelming.
Our driver Kelley was great(the roads are crazy). KC our van guide was energetic and great. The river guide gave zero instruction. He just had us get in and go. Then he would shout at us to join our tubes together. Not easy since we all just floated away. If he would tell people, when we get to a cable grab it. After you go through each "rapid" grab tube to link together . The float was very short.
The blue hole was even more chaotic. No instructions again. Hundreds of people in one place made it very hard to stay with the group. Also very short, 4 total jumps into pools. No time to sit and enjoy it.
The lunch was not very good.
