If the horses would not have been hit so sadly and been terrified I would have enjoyed my experience.

This was my first time riding a horse so I was super excited and nervous but the guys here make sure your are taken care of. I literally had someone with me the whole time. Best experience even when i went into the water there was someone helping me. The land horse riding was long but the water was very short you literally went in and was out in less then 5 mins

Awesome time at Chukka Black Hole
Apr 2021 • Friends
Just came back from a bachelorette trip to Montego Bay and what a great time! We took a whole day to visit Chukka Adventures in Black Hole and we are so glad we did. We started with the horseback riding through the trails and the water and it was amazing. Our awesome guide, Alvin was with us the whole time providing knowledge and showing us the local vegetation. Riding the horses into the sea was so much fun. It’s calm, comfortable and nostalgic. After the horseback ride we went on a countryside tour on ATV’s! We got super dirty but who cares, it was great! We finished off our adventure on a catamaran cruise! Rum punch, music, dancing, snorkeling, and an awesome staff! I can’t say enough good things about Alvin and Chukka Adventures. When you’re done on an adventure you can sit back and relax in their infinity pool, swings, loungers and enjoy a drink at the bar and come food at the grill. There are also a couple shops to buy some local souvenirs. Would definitely book another adventure here!!

Miserable experience
Mar 2021
If you enjoy paying $100 a person to stand in nonsensical lines with hundreds of people, you will love this activity. First we stood in a line just to sign a paper, even though we had just registered online. Our line was incredibly long and when another bus load of people showed up, they started a new line... right in front of us. It was infuriating. Then we left that line to get a wristband. Mass bedlam with no one staying in line and everyone pushing forward. Then we left that line to get in another line to purchase a key for an $8 locker to hold all the items they told us we should bring but then wouldn't let us carry. Then we were sent to the horses for a 10:00 ride and were told there was no more space and we would have to wait until the next ride, which didn't take off until about 11:30. When we finally got on our horses, there were at least 50 of us in the group. 30 minutes of riding, nose-to-tail. You couldn't ride side by side, you couldn't stop to take photos in front of the sea, and 10 minutes of the ride was following each other around in a ring before heading out to an open field where the sun beats down on you. We rode through a "jungle" for about 10 minutes. Then we get off our horses and into yet another line, where we waited to swim with the horses with about eight other people. The location is exactly where we started. Don't think for a minute that you are riding through a jungle to a scenic private beach to swim with your horses. That is not at all what this is. This is a highly commercialized, highly inefficient production meant to separate you from your money at every turn.

Beware of false advertising
Well first thing when you sign up for this tour at your resort they write down supposedly everything you need, well except everthing you actually need. Which they happen to have for sale for you, its such an obvious money grab and one that spoils your mood from the moment you get there. Be sure to bring close toed shoes and shorts or you'll be paying an extra 50$. Also no matter how long your experience takes you'll be there for a minimum of 6 hrs, ours said 3.5 on the brochure, we did two hour long activities and were stuck here for 6 hours where you pay for everything vs being back at our resort. Beware and i would choose another vendor, its a shame because the actual excursions were nice.

Horseback riding through the ocean was awesome. Howard our leader was fantastic! We had a great time. Bar/lunch area at the facility was awful. Husbands wanted to wait for us while horseback riding and Donna was horrible would not let them stay and have drinks and lunch when it was clearly obvious they weren’t busy. Guess they didn’t need our dollars

Worth it!
If you are not a person that gets to ride all the time this is fun. Pretty long trek so you get your money’s worth that way. The swim wasn’t what I envisioned as it was going a Tinch away from shore around in a circle and back. My horse walked most of it lol. Diff experience nonetheless but less exciting once you see it. The actual horse ride was fun and the guides mostly all nice only one little mean guy before you take off lol. Cool for families and couples. I hate the Group buses so take private transportation if you can! Leon is the best at Jamaica Experience Tour! It’s private and he cares more about you than just shuffling you from point A to B and then expect a tip and less noisy people lol.

Unimpressive and overpriced, but the jerk chicken was good.
Dec 2019 • Couples
Very unimpressed... I hate to be that person but having owned horses, and done many back country trail rides, I expected a lot more. Nearly half of the ride was spent walking in circles waiting for the other 30-40 people to be loaded on there horses. The “back country” trails you take are nothing more than four wheeler roads on slight hills and riding along a muddy puddle of a river littered with trash. As for the swimming portion, the guides instruct you to ride in a way that causes the horses to inhale sea water. Based on pictures and advertising we had hoped to really get what we paid for and unfortunately did not. I understand it is a tourist attraction but I’ve done rides with better views, horses, guides, and less time for half the cost. It was now all bad however, the history of the area and the jerk chicken were good.

Hi 136skyw, thank you for taking the time out to provide your feedback on our signature Horseback Ride & Swim tour. Our operation opened over 30 years ago with this signature tour offering the best of nature with an interactive horseback ride tour. This tour give riders, at all levels, the opportunity to participate, in what might be a once in a lifetime experience in an environment that promotes safety for all. Our tour starts with a safety briefing and demonstration that allows guests to become familiar enough with the practices used whilst on tour. Our well trained guides then proceed to mount guests based on their personality match with the horses available. This is a very important part of the process as the horse rider relation becomes one for an exceptional experience. The “Ring Master” then closely watches each rider in the practice ring to ensure that the match up of guest to horse was well executed and also to ensure that all riders are comfortable before heading out to the trails. Our tours do share trails and space, though not simultaneously and tend to give guests a chance to see what neighbouring local communities are like. We traverse through spaces that are not privately owned but as an environmentally company, we work very closely with the community with programs to educate and participate in proper waste management. The swim portion of the tour, though guided, also allows the horses to take a refreshing bath, as they would naturally do with you, our guests as a companion. Let us hasten to reassure you that the horses are still in their natural environment and under absolutely no duress. We would like to express our gratitude for your feedback and for giving us an opportunity to see things from another vantage point. We invite you to visit us when next you travel to Belize, Jamaica, Grand Turk or Dom Rep!
