White beaches, glowing sunsets, rainforests, pulsating reggae rhythms and beach bars – the crews may just think they have arrived in paradise when they sail into Jamaica.
The fleet will moor at The Errol Flynn Marina, located close to Titchfield Peninsula in the town of Port Antonio.
The marina offers world-class facilities for yachtsmen and is also home to two restaurants as well as a scuba diving school, a swimming pool and children’s play area.
During the stopover visitors will be able to enjoy Jamaica’s world-renowned cuisine, famous reggae music and warm hospitality during various events in the marina.
Jamaica offers six distinct resort areas: Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios, Port Antonio, the South Coast and Kingston.
For visitors looking for a relaxing beach experience, 7 Mile Beach in Negril offers the ideal spot with its collection of resorts, beach bars and white, sandy expanse.
Montego Bay offers a combination of resorts and attractions, with a range of all-inclusive resorts, excellent golf facilities on five championship courses and excursions for all the family.
Adventure junkies should head to Ocho Rios to choose from over 35 attractions in a 10-mile radius including 600ft Dunn’s River Falls, River Tubing, a Bobsleigh ride down Mystic Mountain and ziplining through the rainforest.
Port Antonio, situated on the north coast, provides the ideal landscape for a romantic holiday with a green, natural environment. River rafting, considered to be Jamaica’s signature attraction, and bird watching are two of the top activities to try.
Kingston is not only Jamaica’s capital city but it is also the capital of culture offering theatre, nightlife and musical history with the Bob Marley Museum.
The South Coast offers the ‘off the beaten track’ experience with must-do activities including the Appleton Rum Factory tour, YS Falls and a crocodile safari.
Jamaica’s world-famous jerk cuisine, curried goat, ackee and saltfish are the local culinary specialities. Boston Bay, the birthplace of jerk, is home to plenty of outdoor jerk restaurants. The Blue Mountains is also renowned for its internationally renowned coffee and visitors cannot leave without trying the two local rums, Appleton and J.Wray and Nephew.
For local jazz and indigenous Jamaican folk music lovers head to Mike's Supper Club which offers a hip, speakeasy vibe at the recently reopened Trident Hotel.
For Caribbean souvenirs, Port Antonio showcases Jamaica’s rustic side where you can buy various local products including Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, premium rum and cigars and Jamaican handicrafts.
It’s going to be a huge party so just come to Jamaica and ‘Get All Right’, Mon!
