Chukka Caribbean Adventures is the new corporate name for the long established Chukka Cove and Chukka Blue Adventure Tour companies operated by the Melville and Byles families in Jamaica. With Corporate offices based in Montego Bay, the company distinguishes itself as the number one nature adventure tour provider in the region.
The Chukka business was founded in 1983 by Danny Melville offering an original Horseback Ride 'n' Swim tour at Chukka Cove Farm near to the tourist town of Ocho Rios. The popularity of this tour led the company to add another adventure programme, the Mountain to Sea Bike Adventure tour in 1998 and the company has sustained an impressive programme of expansion from that time. Before long, Danny was joined by his three sons, Marc (Managing Director), Alexander (Finance Director) and Daniel Jnr. (Director) in the growing family business. In 2001 the Melville's partnered with John Byles and opened an operation in Montego Bay under the name Chukka Blue with John as Managing Director.
Today, the company operates twenty-eight (28) tours in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and St. Mary, in Jamaica, Belize City, Belize, Half Moon Cay, in The Bahamas and Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands.
