I highly recommend this excursion! Debbie and Junior were amazing! Debbie is super knowledgeable about the island and Junior safely got us there and back to the resort. On the cruise itself, the lifeguards were having a blast, I wish they focused on the safety of participants a little more. But overall, there were a lot of them either having fun or paying attention and no one felt unsafe. The Dunn's River climb was crazy! Definitely bring water shoes and waterproof cases for your phone. Tour guides were guiding us up the falls and taking our pictures along the way (they used our personal phones but you can also purchase their album for $40). Lastly, when we return to the boat they had hot Jamaican beef patties for us, they were so good! I wish they had more food free with the excursion like I was expecting, but they also gave you a chance to order food from a local restaurant. After the climb, the rum came out and the DJ was killing it with the music! We vibed out on the way back to the beach and had a lit time!! Dancing, drinks, everything! I would definitely go back on this excursion.

On our third day in Jamaica, we took the Cool Runnings boat trip to Dunns River Falls. This was most amazing! The bus ride was where the party started as Kevin, our tour guide, led us through introductions and gave us info about the sites. We arrived at the dock and had a nice meal of jerk chicken, rice and slaw. We then had a bit of a wait for our boat, which was somewhat frustrating because it was very hot. However, once we got on the boat, the trip improved significantly.

We stopped and went snorkeling, then went to Dunns River Falls. Along the way we were treated to a DJ and free drinks. Passing a cruise ship was pretty awesome. The Falls were spectacular! I was tentative but we divided into groups and grabbed hands and started up. If you told me that I would've climbed a mile up a waterfall, I would've said "no way", but our great guide Raphael got us all to say "Yeah Mahn!" to the idea. It was just amazing. Scary but exhilarating!

After this we boarded the boat, received hot meat patties and had a celebratory ride back to shore. It was like being back in college with an amazing playlist! The free drinks were great and they offered us the chance to pre-purchase food for the ride back (which I didn't do but what others got looked great!)

The bus ride back to our hotel took longer than expected because a passenger got sick and had to throw up on the side of the road. It was cool though because we made it back before dinner was over.

Bring water shoes, water bottles, sunscreen, cash and a waterproof pouch for your phone. If you really need to eat a lot, bring your own snacks. Also, be mindful if you have children, especially teen boys, that the ladies swimsuits were not modest and they may see lots of thongs and bare butts ( which I wouldn't suggest for doing the Falls). Also, a hat is helpful. Also, at the docks, people are selling weed products and other drugs, so if you aren't used to that it can be a bit jarring. FYI.

Bring money for tips too.

All in all, this was worth every penny! Thanks for a great day!

I found the Cool Running's Catamaran Cruise excursion from here, Trip Advisor. Great experience! The staff was fun and energetic. I enjoyed the lunch before our departure. I did try to snorkel, but not for long lol. Staff was helpful during the process. Dunn's River Falls was a great experience! We had a party on the way back to shore. The beef patties were great and unlimited rum punch! The DJ was live and kept everyone dancing and grooving. Would definitely do this excursion again with friends.

The meat of the trip (party boat, Dunn’s falls, snorkeling) was a lot of fun, but getting to and from Ochos Rios was anything but convenient. It was advertised as starting at 12:30, but we had to get picked up at 10am and didn’t get back till 8pm, despite the trip saying it would be only 3.5 hours. When we arrived at Ochos Rios, our group didn’t receive directions on where to go and were all confused. Further, our guide didn’t direct us to the boat during boarding, we didn’t have a wristband for entrance, and ended up just following other tour groups to the boat. Dunn’s falls were exciting and worth the excursion. The snorkeling seemed tacked on as we were directed to snorkel just in the water at the dock where our boat was. The water was murky and equipment subpar. Overall, still an enjoyable experience, just more stressful than it needed to be. Also DO NOT buy the Dunn’s Falls DVD! Half of the DVD was a promotional video for Jamaica and the other half was poor video quality. I’d highly recommend buying ahead of time or on the boat a waterproof see-through phone case for photos. It’s the play.

The cruise was like 10 minutes off the beach's shore to snorkel. Barely anything in the water to see. Fishes were probably a couple of inches long. I've seen more aquatic life from the shores of Bahamas and Barbados. They don't serve alcohol until all of the activities are done which makes sense. Dunn's rivers falls was a tourist trap. As we were trying to enjoy the views the photographer guide was constantly telling you to pose. Once you get back to your boat the 2 guides heckle you for a tip. We paid $293 for 2 people from sunwing it wasn't worth the money and it took us away from the resort for the whole day. We left at 10:30 and didn't return until after 7.
The Jamaican patty was good, but for a "party" cruise there wasn't much time for drinking.

Worst experience ever and ruined my trip! I booked prior to coming to Jamaica only for the driver to tell my friends me and one more person were not on the main list even though I had my confirmation number and proof of purchase. The driver told my friends a second driver were coming to pick us up! We waited over an hour in the lobby for pick up. The driver NEVER came! I need a full refund immediately. None of the numbers worked he provided my friends for us. I was so disappointed! It ruined my trip completely because we had to pay for another excursion just so we wouldn’t be bored.

My family and I decided to book this excursion through DRS Jamaica Tours and it was amazing from start to finish. We ranged in age from 46 to 70.

The staff on the Catamaran were courteous, informative and fun. Safety is also their number one priority. Nick on the entertainment crew was a whole vibe along with DJ Craig, Shareesa who took us up the falls and Akeem who kept us all smiling and rocking for the whole cruise.

I give this cruise 10/10, we wanted to get right back on and go again 😂😂

We unfortunately spent more time traveling and waiting on the catamaran than at the falls . We got to Dunn’s river climbed the falls and had 15 minutes to rush back to the Catamaran.
The team in the catamaran was very helpful with the snorkeling and the bar drink offer was appropriate. The catamaran was crowded but entertainment was fun for the short time. I wish they played more island/Jamaican music since we are in Jamaica.
The food that was served before getting on the Catamaran was horrible.. hard dry Spanish rice and dry jerk chicken (the yard dog didn’t even want it ) .
We were also served a Patty when returning after the falls . The majority was beef unfortunately there wasn’t much option for non beef eaters the few vegetable Pattie’s ran out .
There is many opportunities to make this tour better . Overall it was a long day and felt a bit rush

This was a day long excursion that highlighted Jamaican history and showed you a good time. During the bus ride from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios the tour guide did a great job showing points of interests. When the group arrived in Ocho Rios a nice jerk chicken lunch was served. We then got on the party boat. We set off to a location off shore for the swimming and snorkeling part of the adventure. The water was beautiful but we had rough seas. Only the strongest swimmers were allowed to go snorkeling. The crew was very attentive and made sure that everyone had a choice of a non-alcoholic drink. We then sailed to the dock at Dunn’s River Falls. Most of the party opted to climb the falls while a few of us took the stairs next to the falls. The falls were as pretty as the pictures seen in the brochures. The crafts people were eager to sell their wares at this location. There were plenty of options for souvenirs. When we returned to the Cool Runnings 2 boat, it was on. There was an open bar, beef patties and a great DJ. The party went on in rough seas for over an hour. The crew was very entertaining and really kept things lively during the whole trip back.

We wanted to climb Dunn's River Falls and thought that sailing there on a catamaran would be fun. Wrong! The trip to get from Montego Bay to the catamaran took two hours partly because the tour guide stopped for an ATM/bathroom break. We literally drove right past the entrance to the falls. This caused us to be late to the catamaran. The guys on the catamaran were nice, but by the time everyone was equipped with snorkel gear and in the water, we were being called back to the boat.

Once we arrived at the falls, we were put into groups and assigned tour guides. This took forever. We ended up standing on the dock waiting for our guide for over half an hour. Then he dragged us up the falls because we were running late.

The catamaran ride back to the bus was fun, but loading up the bus and the ride back took hours. The tour guide, Stephanie, asked if people wanted to stop to shop on the way back. She said we would only stop if everyone wanted to stop. Numerous people said they wanted to get back to their hotels because they had dinner reservations or other commitments. We were already running late. She stopped anyway. In addition, the bus stopped two more times for bathroom breaks. We were told we would be back to our hotel at 5:30, but did not arrive until after 7:30 missing our dinner reservations. The excursion ended up being nine hours with most of that time spent sitting on a bus.

Next time we will make sure to read the reviews before booking an excursion.
