White River Fish Sanctuary

Since the 1970s, a combination of causes due to severe weather events, overfishing, and sea urchin disease has led to an 85% reduction in coral coverage in the waters outside of Ocho Rios. In addition, there has been a decrease in the size and quantity of fish by 600%.

In 2016, fishermen turned to Jamaica Inn for help. After two years and lots of hard work, we are pleased to announce the White River Fish Sanctuary is now in operation, largely funded and facilitated by the Jamaica Inn Foundation.

Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project

Working to monitor and protect the endangered hawksbill sea turtles, The Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project’s huge success has resulted in more than 100 nests and 16,000 hatchlings being recorded yearly.


Project supervisor Mr. Mel Tennant works with our hotel to record data of nest hatchlings. Many Jamaica Inn guests have witnessed the turtle hatchlings right here on our beach.

Teddy Tucker Scholarship Fund

The Jamaica Inn Family continues to celebrate the life and legacy of our dearly beloved Herbert Tucker affectionately known as ‘Teddy” who was taken away from us in March 2020. Teddy has been the rock and foundation at the Inn for the past 62 years.

In honor of Teddy, Jamaica Inn in tandem with The Jamaica Inn Foundation will be starting the Teddy Tucker Scholarship Fund, a non-profit fund dedicated to helping Jamaican families provide the necessary skills, training and education for their children who wish to pursue a career in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
