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 went to the Dunn's River Falls on the 10 Feb 04, and we had a fantastic time climbing through the falls. Only wish we had purchased the videotape that made of the group climbing at 1030am.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2004

My family and I just got back home last night from a wonderful cruise.
One of the islands visited was Ocho Rios, Jamacia. One of the things that I wanted to do there was to see Dunn's River Falls and I did. We took a $10 bus ride to the falls and paid $10 admission. They do accept the American dollar. If you go then make sure you remember your bus number for the return trip. We watched a few people climb the falls with their guides and took a few photographs. Half an hour is more than enough time for your visit, unless you are actually climbing the falls.
I would like to go back.

“What an exhillerating experience!!!! A MUST DO!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2004

It was an absolute fantastic experience! I would highly recommend visitings the Dunn's River Falls.
If you go to Jamaica and don't go to the falls you have truly missed
out on one of the greatest experiences! Once you get to the top you
really feel like you have accomplished something!!! The tour guides are
wonderful and how do they ever remember which camera belongs to which
person? But they do and the pictures turned out awesome. I would return
to Jamaica just for the falls. Truly worth it and unforgetable!!!
Thanks for an experience that I'll never forget! Lisa Cook

“Bring a disposable waterproof camera! The best natural attraction in Jamaica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2004

Don't miss it! Fabulous! Admission was $10 US. We have traveled many places and have three adult children who traveled with us to Jamaica. Even they were totally impressed with Dunn River Falls. We had a driver take us from MoBay to Ochos Rios named Winston Edwards. He is an absolutely fabulous driver and we highly recommend him because not all drivers are safe and competent. He has a website you can access by doing a search (I used google) and typing in Winston Tours. His phone number is 876) 957-2075 and (876) 700-1419 (cellular). Now before you leave the United States be BE SURE YOU BUY A DISPOSABLE WATERPROOF CAMERA! And then don't leave it behind at the hotel the day that you visit Dunn River Falls. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST! We did not wear water shoes, but we did bring an old pair of tennis shoes along and wore those. You definitely need something on your feet. We did NOT go with a group, but instead walked on down to the base of the falls and then waited around until someone offered us a "private" tour. We asked how much, and he said whatever we gave him at the end but we did not want a "sour ending" soooooo. . .I don't remember for certain but we AGREED BEFORE and paid him either $2 or $3 a piece because there were five of us. So for $10 or $15 we got our own "private" guide. We had a blast because we didn't have to hold hands with a dozen people we didn't know. He took our camera right away, and he took fantastic pictures of all us us, creative ones too that I wouldn't have thought to take, like the kids backed up under the falls with water spraying around them like fountain statues. If you don't do anything else in Jamaica make it a point to visit Dunn River Falls!
