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.

What an amazing day out - our favourite trip of the holiday! Picked up form a small cove near Ocho Rios. On way to Dunns River Falls, stopped for snorkelling (tuition and equipment included), and pattie and then on to climb the Falls with an expert guide. On return to the catamaran, it was full on party until we arrived... More

This excursion was the most unprofessional, unpleasant, and least worthwhile i have ever been on. We were sold a beautiful catamaran cruise around Jamaica to end up at Dunn's River. We did not get this. We drove for several hours to arrive at midday at a dock. We were fed feeble amounts of tasteless chicken and rice with watered down... More

So very sorry that you had a bad experience. This has been reported to the owner as many of these things can be addressed and we have regular inspections so find it dismaying that you found all of these issues on the day you visited! There may have been a larger group than usual on your sail as normally (nearly... More

It starts out as a easy cruise, then snorkel, stopping at Dunns River falls which was cool. But, the real party starts as you leave. Unbelievable time and the crew was wicked crazy and fun. My fav was Anna bringing me a drink on the top of her head as the boat was full throttle. Don't miss this excursion.

Great time, stopped off for snorkelling on the way to Dunn's River falls. Very well organised when we got to the falls a guide was waiting with a videographer also.

The first time we came to jamaica we did this tour. My husband daughter(20), son (16) had a really great time. When my daughter came back for a friends wedding the next year she did the trip again. Fun time drinking and dancing on board . Have climbed the falls a few times now
