    Stop At: Nine Miles, Jamaica

    Bob Marley was born on February 6th, 1945. He died on May 11th, 1981. Visiting this small town is a priority for all tourists, cruise ship and stopover passengers alike from Ocho Rios, Falmouth, Montego Bay and from as far as Negril in the west. Nine Miles is a tiny village in hills of St. Ann where the reggae legend, Bob Marley was born, and fittingly, the place he’s now laid to rest.

    Although Bob Marley moved to Kingston at age 13 to live with his mother and to advance his music career, he would often return to Nine Miles to get away from the fast pace life of Kingston. Home is where the heart is and Bob Marley wrote several of his hit songs when he was in St. Ann.

    Nine Miles Jamaica was always his home and to have the full experience of Bob Marley; you will have to visit this village. A tour of this settlement will leave you with a greater understanding of the legend Bob became; in fact, the community today is pretty much how it was in Bob Marley’s early days. A Rastafarian tour guide will be on hand to guide you around the property and answer all your questions.

    Still present, is his first home and the very bed he slept in as a young child also as an adult when he would return on his many “cooling out” visits. The rock that he used as a pillow, on which he would relax. Quite a few guests have said that they have felt the presence of Bob Marley.

    The Nine Mile Tour includes his birth and resting place, what he liked to do and Mount Zion, the spot where he drew his inspiration from to write his songs. Visit the nearby Ethiopian church where his body was laid to rest with his guitar. Please remove your shoes before you enter as a sign of respect. Feel free to look around.


    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Dunn's River Falls and Park, Ocho Rios Jamaica

    After your Bob Marley experience, it will be time to drive to the Dunns River Falls attraction (90minutes drive). Imagine making your way through nothing but lush, green vegetation, hilly terrain with steep slopes off to the side in some areas! Quite farming villages with friendly locals until you reach your destination...Dunns River Falls! There you will meet your resident guide at the guide station for your briefing and immediately treated to this electrifying experience. Your guide will walk with you down to the beach (2minutes walk). From there you will assemble in groups to commence the climb. Be prepared for the cool, refreshing water hitting your body for the first time. The climb from the beach to the top of the falls is 600ft (183m). If for any reason you might be uncomfortable, feel free to notify your tour guide and abort the climb if you so chooses.

    After Dunns River Falls, you will be taken to one of our many local jerk chicken and pork restaurants where you can purchase your lunch and then taken back to your hotel/pickup point.

    Based in Nine Mile, you’re greeted by individuals wanting to sell you Ganga cakes, a joint and even an aloe Vera leaf. We also had two children begging for money. As we entered the house you realise how small it is but where Bob Marley’s inspiration came from. There’s a shop on

    An enjoyable half day visit. Although the weather was far from perfect we still enjoyed and learned so much about Bob Marley. Groups are taken around by Rastafarians who certainly know their Bob Marley history. We stopped or lunch at a jerk chicken cafe and had a huge serving of
