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

My husband and I recently visited Ocho Rios. We booked a catamaran cruise to Dunn's River Falls through Cool Runnings-we did this before our trip and got a discount. The shuttle picked us up and took us to the dock where the captain and crew were eagerly awaiting. Once on board, the crew took pictures and we set sail. We... More

My wife and I did this trip in April. The boat parks up and you can do some snorkeling. Then on to Dunns river falls for the climb. Back on the boat for a few rum and cokes with a disco. Bloody good laugh.

The cruise is enjoyable however it is not very long. It just takes you do Dunn's River Falls for the climb up the falls and back to it's home port with a short stop for snorkeling on the way there. Would have loved to have spent more time cruising about and snorkeling in different spots maybe.

This was pretty awesome. You get on a catamaran, they put rum punch or a red strip in your hand and then cruise around the island near dusk. Wear your swim suit because your gonna get wet, its part of the fun. The water is warm and the temperature awesome for this. We did this in 1998 but are only... More

Really irritating persistent offer of photos once on the boat.Surprised that after less than what felt 10 minutes boat stopped for snorkeling. Then... More

day. If it wasn't for your staff and how amazing they are I would never support your excursion again. Also your captain with the name tag lap walks around with his iPhone video taping woman dancing and that is not appropriate and extremely unprofessional and the male supervisor walking around scratching himself around guest is rude and should never be...

Cool Runnings Catamaran sent their bus to pick our group up at 10:30am. It was a very nice bus (no restrooms) with a great bus driver and a great tour escort that gave us information about Jamaica and made us laugh, pretty much all the way to the catamaran. We did stop 1 time for restroom break and purchase drinks... More

The bus picked us on time and on the way to the place we stopped at a couple of small stores to rest for 10 - 15 mins. These stores sell expensive things and drinks. Make sure to pack some drinks on the way there bc it a good hour drive, especially with kids. Once we get to the place... More
