This trip was way overpriced, like everything else in Jamaica. We paid $98 per person. There were others that only paid $89. It's only $20 to get into the Dunn's River Falls.
When we got to the area where you board the catamaran, there was a little bar. We ordered two Piña Coladas (thinking they were included in the price of the excursion), they charged us $16. At the Falls, the guides stopped us every 2 minutes to take pictures and video, so they can charge you for that also. Very annoying!
The trip back could've been cool, but it was way too short.

We took the Cool Runnings Catamaran mainly to experience the Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. At the Cool Runnings facility, we were fed a GREAT lunch of jerk chicken, Spanish rice, coleslaw, and non-alcoholic beverage. The catamaran staff was upbeat, entertaining, and informative on the short trip to the Dunn's River Falls. After we got back on the boat after the falls (which was a great experience all on its own), they took us to a spot where you could snorkle or just swim if you wanted to. The reef we visited was ok, not great. There were some fish and we did see a wild stingray, but not a ton of exotic fish to look at and the masks were VERY uncomfortable. After the water sports were done, the real party started and they opened the onboard bar. The staff was FABULOUS! Great at getting people up and dancing and having a great time. One tip - bring some snacks because you WILL get hungry between their "lunch" and when the boat comes back. They had snacks for sale on the boat, but not much of a selection and pretty expensive for what they were. Also, watch out for vendors on the beach at the Cool Runnings facility and also at the Falls - they will try to trick you into buying their wares so best to just say no and not take anything anyone tries to hand to you. We really had a blast and would recommend this outing.

Me and my girlfriend were quite excited for this trip before hand but we were very deeply let down. Paying a pricey $126 each! we did the snorkelling which was nice and paid $20 for a disc with 4 pictures on, later discovering there was no pictures on the disk when we got home! we then went to dunns river falls which was really beautiful and fun but self admission was only $20, we got back on the catamaran and it was "party time". The music was brilliant but it only went on for 40 minutes with the all inclusive bar only open for half an hour! My sister and brother in law went on this trip last year and couldn't believe the lack of time around this year claiming the party and all inclusive was on for another 1 hour-1 1/2 hours at least. VERY DISSAPPOINTED and would not use this trip again and if u get asked to buy any pictures please do not as it is a scam and there is no possible way of checking your photos are on your disk till its too late.

Went on this trip a week ago. Had a blast!!!The crew were awesome,especially Marilyn!!!One of the most exciting days we had.Only complaint was the photographer on the boat.We bought a dvd with pictures she took of us only to find out at the resort was cracked in half.We talked to two other couples we met and theres were also cracked.To big of a coincidence I think.Would definately repeat this trip.We will take our own pictures from now on...Just hope they get this scam fixed!!!!
