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 gave it a 3 star because of our time on the catamaran. The process to get your gear to go snorkeling, getting off the boat, and and getting back on the boat was pure chaos. We were trying to be nice and wait our turn and people would just jump right in front of you, whether we were waiting... More

Was a great time on this boat. The crew knows how to have a good time. They have music, drinks, and food. They also take you snorkeling near a reef, make sure you have a camera for water there are alot of fish.

We were going to opt to hire our private tour guide that I found but instead, chose to do something different and take the catamaran to Dunn's River Falls. There was a deal they were having on their website to where 1 child goes free per paying adult, plus an additional $10 off to book online. That basically made the... More

The staff was extremely organized and helpful with equipment and getting you on and off the boat . Then we sailed over to the falls. The climb is... More

Picked up at hotel at 10:30 am. 40 minute drive to Ocho Rio. They provided a meal of jerk chicken and rice, while we waited. Around 12:30 pm, they fill up 3 boats. You go out about 200 yards and snorkel. We were some of the first off the boat, so we spent around 35 minutes in the water. Good... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The people were extremely helpful and nice. Especially Lysanne. My friend can't swim and almost gave up on snorkeling but with her calm demeanor she helped her get over her fear.
