Just wondering if there is any surf in Ocho Rios, or close by?  Will be stopping by during a cruise.

Nothing in Ocho Rios. The nearest surf to Ocho Rios is almost a 2 hour drive. If you hit it early, you might be able to get in some waves, but you'll spend most of your day on the road. Let me know if you need more info.

My wife and I stayed at the Sandals Resort in Ocho Rios a few years ago.  I brought my board but did not expect to use it.  To my surprise right in front of the hotel was a channel and head high waves breaking on a little reef to the right. I asked the beach boys if anyone ever surfed it and they said no.  I went out and found out the waves were fun, even got the local guys to come out with me.  I spent the next week surfing great snappy little righthanders.
This was in October.  Further down the beach we stopped at the Sandals Duns River and save overhead waves on the outer reef from the hotel.  I didn't surf it but it looked fun.

Sounds like you got Ochi all time! During my stint in JA I visited Ocho Rios now and then, and never saw much of a wave. Sounds like it turns on, but I'd have to say rarely. Certainly couldn't count on it for a week's vaca. Head east to at least Buff Bay!
