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.

This was a fun excursion. Our bus took us to the port where they gave us lunch of jerk chicken, rice and coleslaw-all very good. We waited on the beach for a short time for the catamaran to come. It was a little disappointing that we didn't go out far for the snorkeling but the reef and water were very... More

When we arrived we were served lunch, just jerk chicken, rice, hot dog or burger for the children were the only choices! We then had to wait on the beach for 1hr before we... More

We were picked up at our hotel along with about 14 other people from other resorts. The hour ride was nice, hearing about all of the history of the land we were passing. We stopped at a little store on the way and had some red stripe, snacks and were able to souvenirs if we wanted. Once we got to... More

We took our two daughters on the trip (aged 12 and 15). The boat is in good condition with shade available inside, and the trip is very well organised. It's larger than I expected with around 60 people on it. We were provided buoyancy aid, flippers and masks to snorkel with and almost everyone went into the water. Was a... More

We were really impressed with how funny yet professional the staff was. They made you feel safe and for young adults understood the importance of good customer service. We had a fantastic time. We had an amazing party.

Beach Mama, was a lot of fun and took care of us. music was pumping and the rum was flowing. I can't swim but still was able to go snorkelling thanks to the equipment provided. So happy I went and wasn't rushing to get off the boat when it finished.

Okay, so Cool Runnings excursion is awesome. I will say though, it's a little packed on the boat. The staff is friendly and very entertaining. The picture people are a little annoying though (sort of pushy and relentless with the sales push). Overall great value though.
