Departs: Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Price from USD 85.79
Prospect Plantation is an agricultural property established in the 18th Century. Take a tractor drawn Jitney and experience a working Jamaican plantation, where you will see bananas, cassava, sugar cane, coffee, various spices and many other crops! You will see the magnificent White River Gorge - a spectacular view. Jamaica's first hydro-electric power station was built here by Sir Harold Mitchell.
At Sir Harold's Viewpoint the Jitney stops for you to enjoy a cool refreshing drink. From this lookout, the island's north coast and the probable site of Columbus' first view of the island can be seen. On a clear day, Cuba, some 90 miles away to the north, is visible on the horizon. The channel between the two islands was known as the Spanish Main by buccaneers because it was the dominant path taken by ships en route to Spain from Central America.
You will also embark on a Camel Trek around the plantation. Marvel at the stunning scenery and enjoy the unusual experience of riding a camel! You will be amazed at just how high you are on top of a camel!
You will also be taken to other points of interest within Prospect Plantation, such as, the Great House and the surrounding gardens, as well as getting the chance to feed the ostriches, pet the camels and see Farmer Joe climb a 30 foot Coconut Tree!
