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.

We booked this excursion through a cruise line to go from the cruise ship to dunns river falls. We picked it bc we wanted to go straight to the falls and back. That is exactly what happened. We had a great time on the short ride from the ship to the falls. The guides on the boat were all really... More

We are so very sorry to hear this, as we stated to the other person who was onboard this day we are dealing with the matter of the guide who took the sea urchin off the reef. We are also investigating the reason for the back and forth with the boats as this is not the way we handle multiple... More

Loved this tour. The staff was all about making this an incredible trip. We did the catamaran on New Year's Eve, and it was ever so perfect!!! It was the first time that I experienced the catamaran, and I loved every minute. We even had the opportunity to do some snorkeling on the reefs. This was definitely one of the... More

booked the cool running tour, not impressed. The tour starts out on a very uncomfortable bus for 1 hr, where you stop and pick others up all along the way. The bus stops at a small stop so you could use the washroom and purchase something to drink and buy water shoes for the falls(even though it says drinks included,... More

The catamaran route to Dunn's River is the only way to go!! We arrived before anyone else so it made it much easier to manuever the Falls climb because we were not crowded in with so many other groups. The crew on the boat was amazing and made the whole trip a blast!! Definitely recommended for any age.

We have just returned from Jamaica and were really looking forward to this trip as are both keen snorkellers. We booked through our Thomson rep as they hire the boat excusively on Saturdays or so they say! We were on the boat for 5 minutes before the snorkelling & everything felt very pressured and rushed (we found out why later... More

We are very surprised to hear that a member of our crew did this to the reef, and to the sea urchin! Thank you for letting us know - we will be dealing with this matter immediately.

Short journey from Club Ocho Rios. Snorkelling 10 mins from dock on reef. Good equipment, but not that much to see on edge of reef. Dunn's River Falls excellent. 35 min climb up through the Falls. You need wet shoes, but I would recommend just hiring them from the organisers rather than buying them.

We enjoyed our day on the Cool Runnings catamaran combination tour that included snorkeling, a climb up Dunn's River Falls followed by a fun party sail. The part that was annoying is that when we first arrived at the boat we snorkeled and then once everyone was boarded back on the boat after snorkeling it took an extremely long time... More
