Ocho Rios Catamaran Tour Excursion Reviews

Set sail on a catamaran cruise around the famous Negril beach and Ocho Rios' scenic coastline.
30 minutes of snorkeling near a decent offshore reef.
30 minutes of snorkeling near a decent offshore reef. Cruised around the shore with free rum punch or Jamaican beer. Beach was not even worth stopping at, and it took about 30 minutes to dock because it was so windy.

Dunn River Falls and Regae Party Sail was a lot of walking. The falls, themselves, are manmade. It was a sea of humanity in water. I don't think I would have been comfortable in the water with that many people. The catamaran had to motor due to the rough seas and high winds. The young girls on the boat were fun and made the trip back to the marina. There was complimentary rum punch and it was good. We did stop for 30 minutes at a shopping center on the way back to the ship. It had the same jewelry and t-shirt shops found in most of Mexicos tourist areas. Read Less

Pales in comparison with quality of the Fury Catamaran tour in Cozumel, however, if you want to climb Dunn’s River Falls and want to do get there by sea approach rather than by land this is a good choice.

The snorkeling was very good. Then we went to another beach and were to "Tender" over to the beach. This boat was late getting to our Chuka Catamaran and it was an old beat up sailing boat that was not very safe. They had to lower people from our boat on the this boat, they put 13 people in each trip. The boat engine stalled and floated from our boat and they finally started that. That happened three times. Then we waited 90 minutes for two couples, one returned very late and the other couple did not even returned. We assume they took a cab back to the ship because this tender was dangerous. Read Less

After the encounter we’d had here while on our EPIC cruise in January ’17, we decided to keep things “simple” for this day, so we had pre-booked/prepaid NCL REGGAE PARTY SAIL & DUNN'S RIVER FALLS. We had a great time on the boat, a fantastic walk up the stairs along the Falls (Yes, we’d already gotten that experience out of our systems), enjoyed the beach for a while, and returned to the boat for rum drinks and dancing… all the way back to the port!!!

We enjoyed a fun day on the catamaran tour. We snorkeled in one location and then went to the beach. The boat was nice, and the crew was very friendly. Getting to the beach was a little tricky, however, as we had to be ferried from the catamaran to the beach by a smaller vessel. It took quite a few trips to get all the passengers over to the beach. When it was time to reboard the catamaran, we had to be more or less hauled on board individually by the crew since there were no steps available. One passenger sort of fell back into the smaller boat while trying to board the catamaran--no injury, but a little scary. This part of the excursion could stand some definite improvement. Plentiful rum punch and beer and dancing for those who wished to participate were offered on the somewhat rough trip back to the dock. Read Less

Cool Runnings tour was so much fun. The staff on the catamaran were very friendly and fun. They made sure everyone had a fun time. We sailed by and stopped in front of Dunn's River Falls for photos though we could not get off and climb the falls. Then after sailing a little bit more, we dropped anchor for 3-45 minutes of swimming in the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. On the way back to the ship, the Rum Punch was flowing freely! This tour was so much fun, I will be doing it again on another cruise I am taking in January! Read Less

Cool Runnings - You board the boat right at the end of the pier so you do not have to enter the area where all of the aggressive vendors are. They take you on a slow sail along the coastline eventually getting to Dunn River Falls where a guide leads you up the falls. The falls are beautiful and the spring water so cool! My family loved it. On the sail back to the ship they take the boat out further bounding through the waves spraying everyone with water while playing tunes and drinking rum drinks. Was really fun. Read Less

Our third port was Jamaica. We booked the Cool Runnings excursion to Dunn's River Falls. It was an excellent excursion. We climbed the falls which took about 45 minutes. The guides are experienced and keep people moving. It wasn't too difficult (we are all in our 50s) and quite fun. I read about aggressive vendors, but we didn't encounter any vendors there at all. We were there about 10am which might be too early for island life. We walked to a shopping area right off the terminal where we encountered a lot people selling lots of stuff. If your shopping experience is primarily US-based, then vendors in Mexico or Jamaica seem quite aggressive, which they are. We just say "no" and move on. Read Less
