The party begins when you hop aboard the beautiful catamarans docked at picturesque Mahogany Beach. While the DJ spins the best in reggae and soca music, the delightful hostesses serve welcoming fruit punch and soft drinks. "Safety first" is the capable captain's #1 goal. The action-packed sea adventure begins with snorkeling in the deep blue Caribbean reefs, and the attentive crew prepares you with guidelines, snorkel tips, training, and what to expect when you reach the Falls. The excitement builds while cruising past emerald hills, waterfalls, and historical sites before docking at the foot of the world-famous Falls. Expert guides lead your climb up the impressive cascading 600-foot (183-meter) waterfalls. The invigorating jaunt through the scenic tropical rain forest is a primer for the fun awaiting you on the sail home. Greeted back onboard with a smile and an open bar, the DJ pumps up the volume and it's time to let loose! You'll agree that Cool Runnings Catamarans is the ultimate party boat experience in the Caribbean! The Cool Runnings Dunn's River Falls Cruise is the must-do activity on your Jamaican vacation. The 9 a.m. cruise is perfect for families with small children. The 12:30 p.m. sail is great for groups, couples, singles, family reunions, and birthday and wedding celebrations. Visitors from Negril and Montego Bay are treated to an authentic Jamaican lunch before boarding. « less

Smooth pick up from our hotel in Runaway Bay to get us to Ocho Rios for the 12:30 "SNORKEL DUNN`S RIVER CRUISE". The catamaran moved only about 150m from the dock to a reef for the snorkelling which was fine, but nothing special. The walk up Dunn's River Falls was different, and great fun (and I'd recommend it whether you... More

For it being known as a party cruise. One hour isn't exactly a party. The ride home from the falls is the only bit of partying you will do so for the partying side of it is a bit of a let down! The rest of the trip is really good. The snorkeling and dunns river falls!

This was an amazing activity! We met at their facility for a delicious lunch of BBQ chicken. The crew took us out on the catamaran for some snorkeling. There were jackets and floats for everyone and safety was first. They were even excellent with first-timers. The next stop was Dunn's River Falls, which is amazing. Before getting to the falls,...

This is an excursion that has an appeal for all ages. The catamaran cruise begins at the cruise ship terminal in Ocho Rios. Guides are standing by dockside to help guide you to your boat. The crew is very courteous and professional. Cruise photos are taken at several times through out the time on board. The ride from the terminal... More

We were picked up from our hotel at the Riu Ocho Rios at 12 PM and they took us down the street to the boat dock. After we loaded the boat we went snorkeling. The snorkeling lasted for about 30 minutes, and was pretty cool because the guides went down and picked up sea urchins that then attracted the fish,... More
