What You Can Expect

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

Snorkel in Jamaica!

Following pickup from your hotel in Montego Bay or Ocho Rios, transfer to the marina to board your boat.

Climb aboard the 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran and find a comfortable place on the deck to enjoy the views. As you glide out of the harbor, watch the coast slip away and the turquoise blue Caribbean fill your view. Catch some rays on the open deck or relax in the shaded portion of the boat while the ship heads for Dunn's River Falls. 

Your captain will choose a snorkeling location depending on the day's conditions. Slip on the provided mask, fins and snorkels and plunge into the warm water. Swim over reefs of living coral to see schools of colorful tropical fish. Feel free to ask your crew for any snorkeling guidance.

Back on the boat, continue to Dunn's River Falls, one of Jamaica's most famous landmarks. Disembark on the beach where the falls empty into the ocean, then follow your guide up the 600-foot (182-meter) trek that takes you to the top of the falls. Along the way, stop for quick swims in one of the many lagoons created by the terraced cascades. Enjoy the spectacular view of the surrounding landscape from the top.

After returning from your trek, climb back on to the catamaran for the return sail. Indulge in some rum punch and listen to some traditional island music. 

Your day ends with transportation back to your Ocho Rios or Montego Bay hotel.

This was a great tour. They pick up from most major hotels and resorts. We were actually not staying at a major resort but since we had a rental car it was no problem to drive down to the resort closest to us for pick up. This we a great way to end our trip.

Best time ever! The people were all great. Our driver to Ochi named Garfield was full of facts, info, and jokes. We started with the snorkeling in the calm clear blue water, then off to Dunn's River Falls where we met our tour guide Willie Wilson and photographer Alex. The cruise to Margaritaville was one i will never forget. The DJ was playing awesome music and the rum punches and Red Stripe were flowing!! Lunch provided at Margaritaville was either a burger or taco salad. drinks not included. My hubby, niece, 18 sons,16 and 6 had the greatest time. This should be on everyone's to do list! Lots of fun to be had on this excursion, don't miss out!

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.
