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.

We booked this tour through carnival and were amazingly surprised. There was no snorkeling but we climbed Dunn's river falls which was amazing, spent some time on the beach and then boarded the catamaran for the party of a lifetime. The staff was amazing, rum punch was flowing and the music was pumping. The kids with us didn't have as... More

For family, teens and couples this is a great idea for you first timers to Jamaica. You get your drink on, on the catamaran, have some snorkeling time and then off to Dunns River! Do this experience, your a fool if you don't.

Myself and my husband have just returned from our honeymoon in Jamaica, and were lucky enough to experience the "Cool Runnings/ Dunns river experience as one of our excursions we booked.

This trip is a lot of fun. From Ocho, you go out to sea a coupe of hundred yards then jump in for snorkelling over the coral reef. Then it's back to the boat, a pattie and soft drinks and along the coast to Dunn's River Falls, which is really good. I'd just advise walking past the guides and climbing... More

Part of our Jamaica trip was a day on the Caribbean with Cool Runnings out of Ocho Rios. A great day with great staff and more than enough to drink. Had an amazing day with the great staff of Cool Runnings and can't wait to make this trip again.

Had a really fun half day trip with these guys which took in Dunns River Falls as well. Nice relaxing cruise out to the falls stopping for swimming and snorkelling. Falls are a must when in Jamaica before getting back on board where the tunes are cranked up and in no time you see the result of the impact rum... More

It's a must during your trip to Jamaica! First, the snorkling is so much fun, you get to see the coral reafs and many fish. Then you go to Dunn's riverfall and this is also pretty amazing. Finally you have the party on board, with an open bar, good music and dancing. But if you're not the party kind, like... More

First I have to say that it was not well organized. We got to the boat and had to wait for other people from all over. Once on the boat we went to the snorkeling location which was about a 5 minute ride from the dock. We got into the water and it was people everywhere, way to many people... More

We had a great time on the cool runnings trip, and packed so much in! We had lunch before we got on the boat (although at 11.30 this was waaaay too early - we'd only had breakfast at 9.30!) then quite quickly you go snorkelling, which is always fun, although the reef isn't particularly colourful so don't expect the vivid...
