Ocho Rios Shore Excursion: Heritage Beach Horse Ride

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Spend your time in port in Ocho Rios admiring the beautiful countryside and coast on horseback.

    Follow your guide and learn about the culture of the Taino Indians before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the history of this area.

    Then it’s time to head to the beach for the real fun. Sample some local produce in a shady beach hut before stripping down to your bathing suit and riding through the Caribbean waves on horseback. It’s an experience you’ll never forget – splashing through the water on a beautiful horse. For your safety, the saddles are left on the horses, so you don't have to worry about falling off.

    Your return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other waterbirds fish in the shallow waters. You'll travel through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.

    No experience is required – the ride is suitable for all skill levels. You’ll be returned to the cruise ship port in time to catch your ship and head out to your next port of call.

    Worry-free Shore Excursion:

    We will ensure your timely return to Ocho Rios for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

    If you are looking for a peaceful and safe horseback ride go to Hooves. Our family had an amazing time and Nicoloa and Micheal were great tour guides. They took care of us and we really enjoyed our first time horseback riding.

    My husband and I booked the tour for our honeymoon. He rode on Uncle and I rode on Hercules. The guides were knowledgeable and kept us laughing. I wish I could remember their names! The horses were beautiful and well maintained. It was by far our favorite part of the trip.

    Wow. This excursion was simply amazing. From the moment we were picked up from our resort to the moment we were dropped off....nothing but world class service. I must admit that I was skeptical at first because people have said the horses on ALL the horseback riding tours were
