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.

Awesome time aboard the Cool Runnings Sail to Dunn's River Falls. Great ride out to the falls. Two choices on how to view the falls, you can go up the side steps which is beautiful or actually climb the falls. The guides are patient and stop and/or take photographs for you. The falls are unbelievable, a must see if you visit Ochos Rios. On the way back, the rum punch is flowing. Party atmosphere with dancing and great music. Would highly recommend and would revisist. One word of caution, if you buy the pic cd of you or your group taken by the photographers, be sure to get a release code as you are unable to print off the CD without the code.

“Big Bamboo”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

A great tour for couples and families. Starts with a bus tour by Mikey and his 'Big Bamboo'. Snorklling was great, the Dunn's River Falls was excellent, and the party on the way back was very entertaining.

“Don't miss this one!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We did this tour as part of a cruise ship excursion and would rank it as one of the best activities of the trip. It was really well-organized, made to feel safe, and so much fun! The crew really know how to handle a large number of people, yet make each and every person feel welcome. We climbed Dunn's River Falls, which was amazing. All of our belongings were left safely with "Mama" from the catamaran, who was standing guard when we returned from the climb. A great rum punch topped off the trip as well as awesome Caribbean tunes, some dancing, waves sunshine. Great trip, not to be missed! Thanks, Cool Runnings!
