From the Falmouth cruise ship terminal you will be taken on a historic Falmouth sightseeing tour which will show you the highlights of the town of Falmouth. Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a market center and port for forty years at a time when Jamaica was the world's leading sugar producer. It was named after Falmouth Cornwall in England, the birthplace of Sir William Trelawny the Governor of Jamaica who was instrumental in its establishment. The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City!

On this tour you will see St. Peters Anglican Church, built in 1795, the Falmouth All-Age School which is housed in a former army barracks, Fort Balcarres, the Old Court House, William Knibb Memorial to see the fastest man in the world, and Usain Bolt High School.

After the sightseeing tour, you will be transported to Montego Bay where you can spend the rest of your time at the private white sand beach club at the Doctor's Cave Beach. Relax on a chaise lounge, take a dip in the turquoise water or grab a bite and cocktail at one of the nearby "Hip-Strip" restaurants and bars.

Once your time at the beach is complete you will be transported back to the Falmouth cruise ship port.
