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 didn't know that the falls actually end at the sea, so arriving by Catamaran was perfect. A quick bus journey from Ocho Rios, and a lovely sail across the bay, stopping for a snorkel en-route was a great way to arrive. The falls themselves were a must do. Shoe hire for the falls was $5, though the snorkel gear... More

You may know by the title that these catamaran trips to Dunns river falls are all about getting as much dollar out of you as possible from underwater cameras,photos ,videos to shoes to wear on the falls.The Cat trippatr was the best part ,drink ,fun and music.

We booked the trip through the Norwegian site. We never left the dock/port to get on the Cool Running's Catamaran. Right away they were pushing to sell tank tops for $20 I told the wife and kids to wait. They were so pushy and talked the family into it before they could even talk to me. One lady said to... More

Booked from Montego Bay...2+ hours travel time with lackluster tour guide. Sold us lunch on beach, lunch is a ways from beach. Catamaran was spacious enough however actual cruise time was comical. Snorkeling was literally a 5 minute cruise from dock. Snorkeling was good however much better on the Dreamers cruise out of Montego Bay. From snorkeling Dunn Falls was... More

Had a great time on a rum fuelled cruise on a catamaran, the swimming was great fun too and we took the catamaran to Dunns River falls and the best part of the day was the trip back from the falls with the music blasting, red stripe and rum flowing and everybody dancing round the boat. Great day!!

I was staying in Montego Bay and booked this attraction from a specialist in the resort. There were many options to choose from, but my friends and I chose to take a booze cruise to go scuba diving and then to Dunns River. We took a bus to Ocho Rios where we would eventually ride on the boat. At Ocho... More
