The best excursion ever! Snorkeling, dunns river falls and the catamaran ride. So glad we opted for the catamaran ride to dunns. Fantastic crew and group of people that went with us. Would definitely do again!!

“Very appreciative of Island Routes”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We chose three island routes tours: 1) catamaran tour; 2) mystic river sky ride, bobsled, and zip lining; and 3) Martha brae river rafting.

1) catamaran tour- my husband and I went on this tour with all 17 of our wedding guests following our wedding and it was amazing. The crew accommodated our every need, including music requests, food, and nonalcoholic drinks. Despite booking this tour at the last minute because of an unforeseen scheduling conflict, everything was flawless. We were the only ones on the ship and it truly felt like a beautiful continuation of our reception. We had adult guests of all ages and everyone had a blast. We also went in the early evening and was able to see the sun set.

2) mystic river sky ride, bobsledding, and zip lining- fun trip! My hubby and I went the day after our wedding and had a nice time. Neither of us zip lined before and the crew walked us through every step.

3) Martha brae river rafting- very cute. My hubby and I were chandlered/chaueffeured from the top to the bottom of the Martha brae river while listening to old Jamaican tales. The only thing I would suggest is to please ask the chandlers to not try to sell us items during the tour. They were all extremely friendly but kind of put us in an uncomfortable position when he docked our raft 10 minutes before the tours to sell us his handmade products.

Overall, regardless of which tour you chose, you'll have an amazing time. Island Routes were a pleasure to work with and went out of their way to accomodate us. The tour guides we had were fun, energetic, and cared about your well-being. The tours are well worth your money.

“Dunns River Falls Cruise”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

What an experience! A must do adventure. We had previously experienced Dunns River but this time we took the Catamarran Booz Cruze we called it. We enjoyed the ocean and snorkelling on the way to Dunns River then on the way back we were entertained with music, food, dancing and yes all you could drink from the bar. The crew on the Red Locks Boat was wonderful and very personal. They made sure everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time. We were vacationing with two other couples and we would all do it again without hesitation. If you get the chance dont pass it up, it was an experience that was well worth it.

“Bob Marley Zion Bus Tour”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

A must-do! You get picked up in a the super cool Zion Bus that is covered with photos and facts all about Bob and his life. Our tour guide was hilairous, high-energy, but also very informative. We listened to great tunes all the way up to Nine Mile, the birth and resting spot of Bob Marley. The trip up there is wild......you travel on a one lane wide road, and I use the word road losely, with traffice going both ways! The driver uses his horn to warn on-coming traffic at blind corners and I must say it is a little nerve racking at first but once you settle in, it just becomes part of the adventure and you tune out the honking! Our guide told us horns are better than breaks!!! LOL Once you arrive at Nine Mile, your host or guide entertains you, tells you stories about Bob, takes you to the house he grew up in and the resting place of him and his mother. It is a great tour and his resting place is filled with peace and tranquility, but there is also lots of great laughs along the way too. This was my second favorite excurision we did, second only to Dolphin Cove. Go have fun, learn a bit of Jamacian history and reggae culture. You will love it. The tour includes a patty stop on the way up and a great lunch on the way down, definitely worth the price!

“Cruise/ Snorkeling/ Dunns River Fall”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I went on this tour with three other ladies. We had so much fun. I can't swim but, I still went snorkeling. The Falls was incredible. After that we got back on the boat and ate, drank, and danced. What more can you ask for!!! The crew was great. It was worth the money.
