Description: Cool Runnings Catamarans offers two unforgettable daily cruises to the...
Cool Runnings Catamarans offers two unforgettable daily cruises to the famed Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. 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.

Highly, highly recommend. Especially if you like fun. If you don't like fun, still go because you might end up liking fun. The boat is a good size with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the open sea on your way to the waterfall. The waterfall itself is pretty cool. Climbing it wasn't as tough as you'd think. There...

We loved, loved sailing with Cool Runnings. We have used them to take us to other points to snorkel or just have fun out on the ocean. They take care of your every need with a smile and very friendly and courteous! I would recommend using them.

My husband and I booked this excursions. The catamaran was very large, but more and more people boarded. The snorkling was OK....not a very healthy reef, and the water is very hard to swim, as the current is strong. We are both good swimmers. Instead, snorkled along the cliffs if Negril.....very diverse area. The falls were beautiful. Unfortunately, once we... More

We are happy that you enjoyed the snorkeling and your climb up Dunn's River Falls. We realize that our cruise is a bit of a party cruise, so we apologize that it may have been a bit noisy for you, if this was not what you had expected.

This excursion is definitely worth the money. We had a traditional jamaican lunch before we set sail. We snorkled which was amazing (my first time) Skye helped me as I am non swimmer (very patient). Next we sailed down to Dunn's River Falls, very beautiful and the water is amazing. Once we finished the climb, it was party time for... More

A 3 hour coach ride which was well worth it! Snorkelling off the catamaran then walked up Dunn's river waterfall which is spectacular. Then a trip back on the catamaran with free drinks and lots of fun with the staff dancing and getting everyone involved
