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.

I was looking forward to a fun day on a catamaran, a little bit of rum and a spot of dancing - what we got was a 3hr pickup from our hotel in Montego Bay, a tour of the many hotels along the way and total disorganisation. Finally arrived at the catamaran, squeezed on with a 100s more people, taken... More

We did an excursion through our cruise and Cool Runnings took us to Dunn River Falls. They were awesome!! We have been on a number of catamaran excursions over the years and I have to say that this group would rank near the top. The boat was clean and they offered inside and outside seating, beverages, snacks and music. The... More

What can you say about a fantastic day out to Dunns River, you board the Cool Runnings after a light lunch which is included in the price, you set sail and stop in the Ocean for the first part of the ride and everyone has the opportunity to Snorkel for approx 40 minutes, when this is done you set sail...

This was fantastic for us and the kids. The snorkelling in the sea was not great as there was a strong current and it was quite difficult to swim against. The kids couldn't really go in. The visit to Dunn River Falls was fantastic, and the guide was brilliant. And the trip back with the 'party' was great fun for... More
