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.

I can highly recommend this boat trip - a great way to see Dunns River!! We booked it and then were really worried that it was going to be a bit boozy given we had our three year old with us and I was 4 months pregnant but we shouldn't have worried!! Although there are not a lot of children... More

a really enjoyable day for all the family. Catamaran cruise from Ocho Rios out into the sea over the coral reef where we did some snorkeling for 15 minutes. Experienced snorkelers and swimmers can just go right in once equipped or a good demonstration by guides. Then we sailed to Dunns River Falls where we were part of a guided... More

Booked this primarily for the boat trip, however the coach takes you to within about 1/2 a mile of the falls. On the way the sales speil starts about only water shoes are allowed and if you don't have any you can rent some for $5US then they are onto selling the old film type plastic waterproof camera's (the sort...

Hey, Sorry to hear about your bad impressions of our our cruise. You maybe would have enjoyed less touristic attractions a lot more, as this seems to be what bothered you the most about the whole trip (souvenirs being sold, guides asking for tip etc.). As for the snorkeling, the boat usually stops for 30-45 minutes, not 75 minutes. If... More

This trip was really good fun, you start your catamaran cruise with a quick reef snorkel, you are then treated to warm patties. You stop at dunns river falls, which is really good fun climbing up through the limestone falls as a group getting soaked in the crystal clear Jamaican river. Soaking wet you then get back onto the boat... More

This was as good trip it was attatched to dunns river falls for us, but we got to go out on the catamaran and go snorkling, free drinks and food and great entertainers and one great girl for looking after my husband who was ill on the return sail.

The trip entailed getting on the catamaran, a spot of snorkelling then to Dunns River Falls but was a complete flop. We boarded the catamaran and then spent the next hour in the blazing sun waiting for far too many more people to board. We then sailed a little way out, no more than 10 minutes, where we went snorkelling... More
