This short and inexpensive tour gives a good history of the Island and how Runaway Bay got it's name, as well as shows off some very remarkable geological features.... great for all ages! My husband and I really enjoyed it and it was very professionally run and very safe!

Green Grotto Caves is really easy to access when staying in Run Away Bay - no excursion needed, we just jumped in a taxi from out hotel and took ourselves. Entrance, guide and helmet cost $20 and the tour lasted around one hour. The guide was very informative and a lot of fun. Well worth a visit! Don't worry about... More

Families with older kids will like this attraction. Tour guide had good sense of humor and the history behind the caves is cool. There's a snake, but when we got there I think she just wanted a nap. The underground pond/pool is beautiful, wanted to swim in it but that's not allowed.

We spent an hour with our own guide who showed us around the caves and explained in detail the history of the place, well worth a visit

This 45 minute guided trip is very good. The guide is entertaining and teaches why the area is called Runaway Bay and what Captain Morgan did in the area. Good price - worth a visit.

Hubby and I were the only people here! Got a nice long private tour that was fun and informative. Not as cold as other caves but made up for it in history and fame- James Bond movie filmed here. Thought the 1 hour tour for $19 US pp was not bad. Caves were 2 minutes from our hotel- Grand Bahia... More

I went on this tour with my mother and son (7 years old) and we really enjoyed it. There is plenty of history to be learned about the caves, but they keep it short and sweet so children will not get bored easily. We booked through a third party and I would recommend getting a taxi through your hotel and... More

We visited the Green Grotto Caves in Jamaica when our Disney Cruise stopped in Falmouth. After a bus ride we arrived at the caves and were met by our guide. We put on our hard hats and were taken into the caves. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and the walk was relatively easy although there is a steep staircase that... More
