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

We took the catamarn cruise to Dunn's River Falls. On the way, we was able to go snorkeling and enjoy the beautiful water & view the underwater life. On our way back we had Rum punch & danced on the boat. We all had a great time! Awesome staff!

The crew was very friendly. Our shuttle drivers were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about Jamaica. The crew on the catamaran was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed snorkeling. The falls were beautiful. Overall, we were satisfied with the adventure!

I did the Cool Running Snorkel Dunns River tour for $120 per person (hotel price was cheaper than on their site). We get to the dock at 12pm and they give us 30 mins to eat some dry chicken and tasteless rice. Once we board the boat, we sail for 10-15 mins and arrive at the snorkeling destination. There is...

We regret that your experience was not what you had hoped. We normally offer 45 mins for snorkeling, simply because we have a time of 3 hrs for the entire cruise as some of our guests come on the cruise ships and need to get back on board. Since the entire tour is out in the sun and on the... More

I was pissy at the start. Be in the lobby by 11:40 for an 11:50 departure they said. They showed up at 11:55 and proceeded to wait about 15 minutes before leaving. Get to the dock and they are shouting "Hurry! You're late!" But that was the end of my pissy-ness. Fun crew. Fun time snorkeling. There was a lengthy... More

Booked through Princess Cruises. Loaded onto huge cat which took us to a snorkeling/ swimming spot...don't expect to actually stop at a beach like in the description...more like they anchor quite far off of a beach. Regardless water was amazing, great for swimming, not much in the way of snorkeling. Cat requires you to wear life vests. After snorkeling rum... More
