The Basics

The core of any trip to Nine Mile is a tour of Bob Marley’s home, which remains untouched from the days he lived there. Walk through for a look at the intimate details of his daily life, such as his favorite clothing and chair. Rastafarian guides fill you in on Marley’s childhood, career, and Rastafarian culture as you go, making the most of every display. Most tours also include a trip to Mt. Zion Rock, Marley’s frequented meditation spot and home to the rock “pillow” mentioned in his song “Talkin’ Blues,” as well as to his final resting place and mausoleum. Reggae lovers can enjoy the displays at a more leisurely pace by visiting as part of a private tour, which also makes for a comfortable journey up the rugged mountain roads to Nine Mile. Or bundle a visit to Nine Mile with other area attractions such as Dunn’s River Falls, the Luminous Lagoon, or the Jamaican restaurant owned by another local legend: Olympian Usain Bolt.

Get prepared for a WHOLE DAY of excursions! My husband and I were picked up at 7:15AM and got back at our Negril hotel at 10PM exhausted. The excursions are about an hr each; it’s mostly driving to the locations. Jesse was our driver and he was great! Dropped us off and waited for us between each excursion and meal stop. First was Dunn’s river with our guides (I think one was named Dwayne). They were very attentive and helpful during the climb! Bring water shoes and waterproof case (avoid bringing a backpack to the falls like I did). Pictures were provided (cost $40 and photos send via email) and the pictures were just okay. After the climb, we stopped at Mongoose Jamaica for a good Jamaican meal. Jesse drove us to Bob Marley 9 mile (wear sneakers). There we saw the home and burial of the famous musician (you are requested to remove your shoes for a portion of the tour). Weed and drinks are provided (bring cash!!) at the location. Our tour guide, Crazy Man, deserves a raise! He was such a fun and great guide! Made the tour the best and was very knowledgeable! A band was there as well and we had a mini dance session. Afterwards, we went to Lobster bowl for our second meal which was soooo good! The views of the water were pretty! Then we drove to Mystic Lagoon for the 6:30 p.m. boat ride (complimentary rum punch and fruit punch while you wait for the boat. They have a bar and food as well). If you’re a non swimmer like me, this is the best excursion to do. Life vest are provided and the water is only 5-6 ft deep. The bottom of the lagoon is mushy as hell! It’s a weird texture. It’s gorgeous to look at and see the water glow as you move around. The crew was very funny (I unfortunately didn’t get their names) and photos are a separate package if you want them (I didn’t purchase it). We swam around for a good while until the crew whistled for us to get back on the boat. From there we drove a good while back to our hotel. My husband and I were overwhelmed with how great the day went. Jesse made sure we were safely back and I can’t thank him enough for driving us around ALL day! PLEASE BRING ENOUGH CASH FOR THE WHOLE DAY! We had to do a bank stop lol. Bring bug spray (Jamaican mosquitoes are unruly!), sunscreen, water shoes, a towel, a change of clothes for the drive back. Clocked in 5+ miles that day! Once we got to the hotel we showered and PASSED OUT!

Day Trip to Bob Marley's Nine Mile from Falmouth
Our tour was amazing. I actually got a chance to play drums at 9 Mile the drummer was singing on the mic so I filed it. Our tour guide was extra cool and we actually left an item on the bus and he returned it to us.
