Owner description: 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.

Had a very nice time. Swimming, snorkeling, and trip to Dunns Falls, return trip on catamaran was awseome with 15-20 ft swells on the sea. Was a long day from our resort, excursion included a meal which was so/so below average

bus from hotel was good, your guide was chatty and taught us about patois, and pointed out attractions. Lunch was decent, then onto the catamaran. Snorkeling was great, beautiful coral reef with lots of fish and a ton of different species to spot. Back onto the boat, to the falls. The trip up was good, a bit of a challenge... More

We took the catamaran to snorkel and then a trip to Dunns river falls. The crew was helpful and paid close attention to our safety. One member of our group was not a strong swimmer and he stayed with her the whole time to ensure she also had a good time. No alcohol is allowed until the return trip, which... More

My husband and I stayed in Montego Bay and we're transported by bus to the cool runnings catamaran along with several others who were picked up. This is very timely, however the tour guide was very knowledgable and that kept my interest. After an hour we arrived to the marina and we were greeted with a buffet that included jerk... More

We took the combined Cool Runnings and Duns River falls trip. It takes ages for the boat to leave as it has to wait for so many different hotels, so you spend about 1-2 hours on the boat doing nothing. The trip started of with snorkeling, but it's not that far out and there's not much to see other than... More

Me and my husband went on the cooling runnings tour. The bus driver was hilarous. His banter was great! The snorkeling was fun, it was good to have the equipment and see all the tropical life in the sea. Dunns rivers fall was such a great experience. The party back on the bus was great fun.
