Board our authentic Jamaican country bus, the “Zion Bus Line,” and it will take you on a musical pilgrimage from Ocho Rios to the birthplace and final resting place of the King of Reggae, Bob Marley!

Hear stories about his life and facts about the history of reggae in Jamaica, all while listening to some of his most popular tunes. It’s a must for every music enthusiast!

“so, i went on a fun little soul-searching, social media-less cruise and let me just say, it was incredible. i got to be part of a children’s educational volunteer program and it was one of the most inspirational times of my life. also, zip-lining in jamaica is a life-changing experience. although, i think the people that were in charge of it thought my name was finnie.”
