You will get wet head to toe. There are lockers for rent for $5. You need water shoes, rocks are slippery and sharp at some spots. Bring a towel to put in the locker for after. Large groups and felt kind of rushed. Not for people that are not physically fit. 45 min hike up the waterfall. Take a waterproof camera so you don't have to purchase the video at the end. Beware of the exit. There are a lot of small shops with very pushy tenders. Workers are also pushy for tips. Read Less

Booked Dunn's River with a party Catamaran afterwards; Dunn's River is brilliant and walking up it (and getting soaked in the process) is a fantastic laugh.

Wow!
Wow! What an amazing place. Absolutely stunning hike up the falls. Good pace, guides were very helpful - and lots of opportunity to just take in the beauty of the rainforests of Jamaica.

one word for this port: organized chaos. People with NCL excursions went through a building and on their way. I had a private excursion with a few other people booked through Know Jamaica tours. They told us to wait in this area, which was nicely shaded. Then they called my tour group, and put us in the dorect sun for the better part of an hour. It didn't seem like anyone knew what they were doing, but I think we all eventually found our way. Our tour first went to Dunn's River Falls. It was really fun! We were one of the first groups up the falls that day, so we weren't dealing with huge crowds yet. I think I would have enjoyed it less had I been stuck in the crowds. I also think making everyone hold hands makes balancing harder. But rules are rules. Once we finished that, we went tubing down the White River. It was a nice little area, really nice tubes, but boy was that water cold!! I do wish the tubing lasted longer. A few people in our group wanted to buy some coffee at a grocery store or non-touristy place. Our driver took us to a "local market" instead, where he definitely got a payoff for bringing us. One thing I didn't enjoy about Jamaica was how aggressive the vendors were about tips and if they felt you didn't tip enough. Also, traffic there in the afternoon is no joke, so make sure you leave a ton of extra time to get back to port! What took us about 10 minutes to go one way, took 45 minutes to go back. Read Less

So much fun! Challenging but they don't let you fall or get swept away. The falls guide was surefooted and very helpful, and the group effort was charming. They should rate this excursion as a 3 (physically demanding) rather than a 2 (moderate exertion). It was most definitely demanding. Also, they need to let you know to wear a bathing suit and water shoes. It's a beautiful place and they managed the crowds well. Read Less

After we sat, a staff member comes in our van and asks for volunteers to move to another bus. He asks for a couple! So my wife on our honeymoon move so we can get going. This moron puts us in two single seats. Why ask for a couple and not two singles if you're going to separate them. That put me off all day, I'm supposed to be by my wife on our honeymoon.

The actual walking up the falls part was really cool. The downside was the cruise line did not communicate the required footwear so we had to rent shoes, we also had to rent a locker. The actual trip left over a half hour late from port due to no organization. We didn't actually start the falls climb until an hour and a half later because of so many people. Tour guides were trying to cut other groups off and take you up any way possible. The whole thing just seemed motivated to get the perfect picture so you would pay for the $40 video. Read Less
