What You Can Expect

Jamaica Catamaran Cruise to Dunn's River Falls from Ocho Rios or Montego Bay

Snorkel in Jamaica!

After pickup from your hotel, board your 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran and stretch out on an open deck as you cruise through the Caribbean. Take in the gorgeous views of the wide-open sea as you sunbathe or lounge in the shade, while your crew takes you to beautiful Dunn’s River Falls – a must-see natural landmark in Jamaica. Along the way, stop for a swim and snorkel in the crystal waters where coral reefs teem with tropical fish.

When you reach Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica's national treasures, enjoy the beautiful beach where the river meets the Caribbean Sea. Then, follow your expert guide up the falls on a mild hike to the top of the 600-foot (182-meter) cascade. As you climb, stop for a dip into one of the many refreshing lagoons created by the terraced rocks, and take in the gorgeous surroundings below. You might even recognize the pristine landscape of Dunn’s River Falls from the popular James Bond movie, Dr. No.

After your adventure, climb back aboard your catamaran and enjoy a rum punch party to rhythms of authentic Jamaican music. Let your guide teach you a new dance move or two before your half-day cruise ends with transport back to your hotel.

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!

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.

Called the toll free number and were able to pick me up in Runaway Bay where I was staying. Shoutout to Carlton the Fresh Prince of Jamaica for a wonderful bus ride there and back. All the Chukka staff were kind, helpful and tried their very best to ensure everyone had a great time. Snorkeling was beautiful, water was calm and the Chukka staff even pointed out some areas of the coral reef to check out. We were taken to Dunn's River Falls where their tour guides took us up the falls -- a must see! Once the climb was over, we cruised back to the port and were served delicious Jamaican food and rum punch/beer!
