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 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!

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.

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 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.
