CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS – DISCOVERY BAY Historic Tour
The re-known optimist Christopher Columbus from Italy, made Discovery Bay, Jamaica, a part of history by landing there in 1494 as he continued his second voyage to the West Indies.
Some of the scenery he saw then remains in the coastal community five centuries later, in 1999.
When Columbus landed, he described the place as “the fairest isle that eyes have beheld, mountains and sky, all full of valleys and fields and plains”.
The explorer who journeyed from Spain, named the sleepy North Coast village, Dry Harbour, because “though a good place to take shelter against a storm, it had no fresh water”.
There is still no fresh water in Discovery Bay and it still has a harbour, but things have changed for the better since those early days.
Kaiser Bauxite Company has moved in and helped to inject life in the sleepy village. The pier, located at its northern entrance, has had ships coming to the island for the bauxite produced by the company at the Discovery Bay plant located on top of a hill overlooking the village.
When Columbus came, he saw Arawaks and Amerindian villages. Possessed with a sense of humour, he remarked that he saw “so many Arawaks the earth seemed to have been covered with them”.
Discovery Bay no longer has Arawaks but there are several races of people living in the area. The population has grown over the years and the only school in the area is a testimony to this.
After your tour, you may join others at the new ‘Scotchies’ authentic restaurant for some great Jamaican jerks, and ice cold Red Stripe Beer.

Those who wish can swim in the luminous waters as well. (The lagoon is about is about 4-5 feet deep at the center.)

Martha Brae Rafting Tour
3 miles of picturesque peaceful waters, flows gently to the sea for 1 ½ hours you will be guided on a bamboo raft by a professionally trained guide/rafter down the river, its embankments lined with fruit trees and the most lush and colorful foliage.
The Spanish settlers founded Martha Brae Village as a way station to and from the northwest coast of the island. It was one of the few Spanish settlements that survived the British conquest in 1655, not that the British had deliberately set out to destroy any of the existing Spanish villages.
Martha Brae Village was simply left alone when the British began to settle the colony. Its close proximity to Martha Brae River made transportation cheap and relatively easy, and one of the first official tasks of the Town Council of Trelawny in 1772 was to clear the river of obstructions, so that boats and barges could safely navigate its waters. This highlighted the importance of the river.
Rose Hall Great House Tour
The legendary Rose Hall is the most famous great house on Jamaica. The subject of at least a dozen Gothic novels, it was immortalized in the H. G. deLisser book, White Witch of Rose Hall. The house was built from 1778 to 1790 by John Palmer, a wealthy British planter. At its peak, this was a 2,640-hectare (6,600-acre) plantation, with more than 2,000 slaves.
However, it was Annie Palmer, wife of the builder’s grandnephew, who became the focal point of fiction and fact. Annie was said to have murdered several of her husbands while they slept and eventually suffered the same fate herself.
