The set up for this tour was wonderful. Considering we were already staying in Ocho Rios made getting to the Falls 10 times easier. The pick up time from our hotel was at 8:30. We arrived at the Falls around 8:55 and we were the ONLY TWO people there. We were later joined on our hike with just one other family. Booking with the tour company is an absolute must.
Doing what: Best Dunn's River Falls Tour from Ocho Rios
Our tour guide was Dave 22 and he was awesome and fun! Catamaran left Jimmy Buffet's and went a short ways to a reef for some snorkeling. We then left and went to Dunn's River Falls. I am not in the greatest shape and thought it may be quite difficult for me but we all held hands going up and to my surprise I made it no problem! They take lots of photos and video. You must wear water shoes and swimsuit...you will get WET! We drank rum punch and beer on our way back and partied with the DJ...lots of fun. Ate when we got back to Jimmy Buffet's. I would recommend and definitely do this again!
The tour was excellent. We enjoyed the climbing of the water fall.
Cool and refreshing water under the hot Jamaican sun! What's better than that! Just be prepared for a long day.
Dunns was great... the shopping was horrible. They need to do away with the shops
I'm torn on the star rating...I LOVED hiking the falls but I was bummed at the lack of fish and ocean life during the snorkeling. The tour was quite large and that could have something to do with the scarce ocean life. I wish the group had been a bit smaller on the boat as well because there were so many people you really felt lined up for a school kids field trip. The lunch afterwards was the most disappointing. I understand for large tours you have to limit options but it felt like it had been cooked that morning and then held for the tour to return. I guess if you take full advantage of the 'party boat' and drink you don't need decent food after getting off the boat. Also it states its a half day tour but it really does take the whole day between pick up and drop off from Montego Bay. All in all it was a good day, but I think I would like to just do the Falls Hike by itself and snorkeling by itself instead.
Nine Mile was the highlight of the trip.Would do this excursion again! Our guide Tony was outstanding.
Our driver was awesome. Kept us entertained and safe the whole way through. We were a bit rushed at Bob's house - last group in and running out of time - but half our group had already been there and we still enjoyed it. Overall I wouldn't do the same combo again, just for variety, but we had a great memorable time!
This was a memorable, happy day spent with a catamaran staff of capable and joyous young Jamaican men and women whose only goal, that day, was to keep the tourists happy, laughing at their comedic antics, and filled with fun and singing and laughter. Though my husband uses a cane for safe mobility, the strong crew literally carried him in and out of the catamaran when it docked at the Falls, to enable us to enjoy the walk out to the falls and the beautiful afternoon sitting by it under the trees. I had the opportunity to walk into the Caribbean, take many happy pics by the Falls, while the younger, able-bodied tourists made their way up to the top with crew members. The lunch was enjoyable as were the unlimited Jamaican beers, rum and punches. The crew were capable of handling the catamaran through rising sea swells without passengers worrying about our safety, while the DJ kept everyone dancing, booty-shaking and beer-guzzling competitions among the genders adding to the hilarity. We would recommend VIATOR bookings of this particular tour, which also picked us up from our hotel and treated us octogenarians with courtesy and deference. From Canada, we congratulate Viator for that day's fun and enjoyment of our two week vacation in Ocho Rios.
Our tour guide, Webby, was the best. We went early in the morning before the crowds. It was amazing!!!

The tour was great except on Wednesday there are 304 cruise ships that come to Ocho Rios so it was very crowded at the Dunn River falls
The crew was fun nice and friendly. The ride their was a great learning experience. The crew on the boat was amazing even Cj looked out for my niece and I when we went snorkeling had a blast beautiful experience. The waterfalls at Dunn River's was amazing bring water shoes for the rock climbing.
Amazing place to visit highlight of our vacation.
I had a blast..Staff was great and very friendly.I would go again
Guides were nice and knowledgeable. Beautiful country.
We loved both excursions and our tour rep, Sydney was great!!! We were expecting a shuttle bus to take us to the excursions and were pleasantly surprised to be traveling by private car! A major plus! :-
This tour was amazing!
Dunn's River Falls was beautiful, especially the beach below. Slippery when climbing it so water shoes are a must. The DVD they try to sell you at the end is overpriced so don't do it. The road to Bob Marley's Mausoleum is super bumpy but has a lovely view of the mountains. The mausoleum was tranquil but short. We did the bio bay option which was short but preferred since it was a long day at that point. Our guide who took us around for this tour lacked enthusiasm but maybe he was just tired. A nice experience overall.
The description of this tour is mis leading. It says Catamaran from Ocho Rios or Montego Bay. It says nothing about the hour and a half drive from Montego Bay to get to the Catamaran. You should really change that. The other downside, the boad was so packed there were not enought seats for everyone. And we paid for lunch which was just ok. The pool area and bar at Margaritaville were filthy dirty. The falls were gorgeous! Disappointing at best.
This is a must do.
This tour was a lot of fun. We could not have climbed the falls without the help of our two guides Harris and Moses. Everyone we told that we were going to Jamaica said not to miss the falls and I am glad we didn't.
This adventure was amazing. The tour guides were fun, interactive, very high energy. The place is amazing. I highly recommend it!!!!
Driver was awesome! Drive from Negril was a great way to take in Jamaica and the locals. Great pics and sight seeing. Lunch included and was our first time trying Jerk Chicken. Full day of fun at the falls and Bob Marley's tour was awesome and a once in a lifetime experience.
Had a great time. It was beautiful!
i had such a great time on this trip. The catermaran was awesome!! and the falls were spectacular!! A must see!
