Take the Cool Runnings catamaran for an amazing day cruise

Get ready for an exciting adventure in which the Caribbean’s tropical beauty and water sports fun are the highlights of your day. The Cool Runnings Dunn's River Day Cruise starts out in the morning with a comfortable pick-up from your resort, transferring you to the marina at the breathtaking Mahogany Beach in Ocho Rios. There, you’ll board a beautiful riverboat catamaran as the friendly crew and staff give you a hearty welcome.

Set sail into the turquoise Caribbean Sea and admire the breathtaking scenery along the way. Be inspired by the emerald mountains decorating the shores of the northern Jamaica coast, and look out into the horizon as the ocean merges with the skies. Soon enough, your cruise will take you toward the coral reef, where an underwater universe awaits.

Go swimming and snorkeling with Jamaican sea life

The crew of your Cool Runnings catamaran will make a stop at the perfect place brimming with marine life that thrives around the coral reef. You’ll gear up with a snorkel tube, mask, and fins so you can swim and get close to Jamaica’s colorful sea creatures. Jump right in or descend from a ladder on the deck of the catamaran, and feel refreshed the moment you come in contact with the warm Caribbean waters. Get lost in this magical underwater world, complete with dazzling coral, unusual sea life, and throngs of brightly colored fish.

Use your snorkel mask to get a unique and personal view of the subaquatic fauna that could include butterflyfish, lionfish, snappers, triggerfish, damsels, dartfish, clown fish, puffer fish, wrasses, angel fish, and maybe even some delightful sea horses. And if you’re a marine biologist in training, try to identify the several varieties of coral along the reef, which could include elkhorn coral, brain coral, bubble coral, sea fan, sea mat, purple base anemone, carpet anemone, red cauliflower coral and sun coral, among many others.

Explore and refresh at the iconic Dunn’s River Falls Catamaran Tour

After you’re finished swimming and snorkeling in the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, hop back aboard your catamaran for some well deserved rehydration with soft drinks and water as the vessel continues its cruise toward Jamaica's most renowned natural landmark — Dunn's River Falls, the highlight of this catamaran cruise. You’ll find out why it’s a show stopper as soon as you come in contact with the stunning views all around this natural wonder.

Disembark near the base of this famous cascade, whose fresh waters drain into the Caribbean before passing underneath the lush tropical rainforest of Ocho Rios’ coast. Continue the journey by walking up toward the 600-foot-long waterfall through the wilderness, with your expert guide leading the way. Climb on the rocks and feel the refreshment as the rush of the waterfalls splashes on you. If this sounds like a little too much action, simply take the time to sunbathe at the foot of the falls, soaking up the beauty of your surroundings and enjoying your dose of Vitamin D.

Party on with music and open bar drinks on the cruise back

Once you finish refreshing beneath the flowing waters of Dunn’s River Falls, washing away every one of your stressful thoughts and worries, you’ll continue relaxing and rejoicing when you board your Cool Runnings catamaran again. The sail on the way back to the Mahogany Beach marina is all about livin’ it up with a total party on the sea! Your boat’s friendly crew and staff will set the atmosphere as they get the drinks flowing and your hips moving. Let loose as you listen to the best dance tracks featuring the sounds of Jamaica, with styles such as reggae and soca that are sure to get your body rocking.

Also freshen up with a nice drink from the catamaran’s open bar, enjoying an ice-cold Red Stripe beer, Jamaica’s most popular brew, as well as a variety of rum drinks that will be just the right medicine for you to feel alive as you and unwind to an unforgettable time. When your Cool Runnings Dunn's River Day Cruise adventure concludes, say goodbye to the catamaran’s awesome crew and hop on your air-conditioned transportation for the return ride to your resort.
