What You Can Expect
Dunn’s River Falls is one of Jamaica’s most beloved natural attractions, known for its lush setting and for its roles in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail and the James Bond movie Dr No. Often referred to as a living phenomenon because it’s continuously rebuilt from sodium and calcium carbonate deposits in the river, Dunn’s River Falls is one of the only waterfalls on Earth that empties straight into the ocean.
After you arrive, listen to a quick introduction from your guide, and then enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to experience the falls however you wish. Put on non-slip water shoes (available for rental if you don’t bring your own) to climb up the 600-foot (180-meter) terraced falls, carefully walking up the ‘steps’ formed by the naturally chiseled rocks. Stop along the way to swim in one of the small pools that have formed on the different levels, and when you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with a nice view.
Or if you’d rather relax, just hang out on the deck located near the river to admire the falls, or go swimming in the natural lagoon at the bottom. When your time at the falls is up, head to a nearby restaurant for a 1-hour lunch break. Refuel with a traditional Jamaican jerk meal, and relax over a beer or rum cocktail, if you wish (lunch is included; alcoholic beverages are at your own expense).
When lunch is over, you’ll be returned to the Montego Bay port to re-board your cruise ship.

The Falls are definitely a must see. It was extremely crowded when we were there as there were 6 cruise ships in port but still they were very organized and made it fun. Remember to bring your own water shoes that is best but you could buy some decent ones there on site for just $10 and were souvenir color of Jamaica. Transportation was great, personal person brought us and stopped for lunch, they were slow on getting us lunch but it was excellent jerk chicken. Great value this tour was especially compared to what the cruise wanted!
It was an amazing experience. Our tour guide Melanie and our driver were very nice and very professional. Melanie was very informative about Jamaica, its history and all the very interesting information about the country. The climb of the Dunns river falls was an experience of a life time. I will do it again if I have another chance. We all love it. The guides were all nice. I will recommend VIATOR to all our friends.
