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.

Fun staff although cruise part should have been longer That is it. The snorkeling took place about 1500 yards from where they keep the boat in the cove. They probably burn a total of 2 gallons of gas with the distance you go. Overall it was fun though

Snorkeling was a joke. Guide was virtually non existent. He didn't show us or identify any species. When others in the group discovered things, he could hardly be bothered to swim up or acknowledge the discovery. We found more on our own! The reef location was poor and it was literally 5 min from the dock we left from. We... More

Excellent day. Lunch on the beach and on board your catamaran and a guide takes you out to the coral reef to snorkel. Amazing fish! Then a ride down the coast to Dunn River Falls, we were met by guides who took groups to climb the falls. They made it fun, at points it was a little challenging, but the... More

Arrive here after a sweaty boring 2 hour journey from Montego Bay. First off, they march you down military-style to a small park where they give you an EXTREMELY basic meal. After this , they march you in groups onto the catamaran( s). Our catamaran had approx. 120 people on it. It didn''t look particularly seaworthy. Not that this is... More

Had a fantastic day aboard the Cool Runnings early March. Great snorkelling and the open bar party was awesome. Never had to leave our seats having drinks delivered by fantastic staff, so we got to relax the whole trip. Its a must do in Ocho Rios, the price was $90 and included Dunns River Falls excursion. Have fun

We had a group of 20 and they charged us $95.00 each, way overpriced, friendly staff, typical rum or beer, only 5 hours long if that from start to finish!
