What To Expect

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.

Dunn's River Falls and Park

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.

The only problem is guides should accept whatever tip is handed to them and not demand more.

Nice trip a little disappointed
Sally_L, Dec 2022
We really enjoyed the day. We were picked up from montego bag. The transfer was very long and the return trip really really long The boat trip is really short - the bar is unlimited after the snorkelling and climbing the falls. Reality allowed time for 3 very good drinks - I’d say party boat would be a stretch. Food was served at margaretaville- it was nice but no time given to return to the bus so we’re hanging around. The tour is well oiled - Mama T and herbie were fab as were the crew and guides up the falls The climb to the fall is a lot of fun (it was a lot harder than I thought) All said well organised trip. I was disappointed with not sailing from Montego Bay - I actually thought that’s what I booked. Would have liked more time on the boat and also food on the boat. I think mostly my bad as I probably booked the wrong trip for us.
Catamaran snorkeling & Dunn’s River Fall
Jessica_G, Dec 2022
We had an amazing time. Started with our driver John and host Momma T. The experience was what we expected and more! Will definitely recommend Chukka company for a wonderful excursion. We celebrated our friend 50th birthday!

Boat ride to paradise
Ashley_H, Nov 2022
Highly recommend! Sofie and Peter were wonderful guides and driver. The beauty of the water during the snorkeling and boat ride were unmatched. Then to top it off, Dunns River was more beautiful then could have imagined.. loved being able to have opportunity to also purchase souvenirs and videos/photos of experience
SHAM!!! DO NOT DO THIS TOUR!!!!
Shawna_F, Nov 2022
We were in a bus with two other families, a couple and one other passenger. Not one of us knew beforehand that the "8 hour catamaran cruise" really meant 2 hours in a bus to a location where we waited an hour to sign waivers before getting back on the bus, wait 30 minutes before climbing the falls, wait 30 minutes before eating, wait 30 minutes before getting on the catamaran, snorkel for ONLY 20 MINUTES, and then head back after about an hour on the boat before another 2 hour ride back. What a SHAM!!! I will be reviewing both Viator and Chukka on every travel site possible. A refund is in order, as this is NOT what we were sold.
Fun in the sun
Kandyce_G, Nov 2022
Had so much fun on the trip. Snorkeling was great. The reef is very shallow so you can see quite a bit. The hike up the waterfall is the best part. It’s so much fun and a unique way to see Jamaica’s nature. And the party on the boat was so fun. All of the crew on the boat are incredibly friendly and want you to have a great time!

Great experience
Aaron_H, Oct 2022
Very well organized operation and a lot of fun. It is an all day thing but very well worth it. We did a couples trip and enjoyed every minute!
A beautiful, fun day to spend on a vacation to Jamaica.
Joni_G, Sep 2022
What a great experience. Definitely worth the money and the day. The tour guide on the bus was so sweet, funny, and educational. She was amazing. Once we got to the boat, the fun begun right away. The water is as beautiful. Snorkeling was a great opportunity to see the beauty of the ocean, in a small dosage. Climbing the Dunn’s waterfall was so much fun. The tour guide did a great job of making it fun and making us feel safe. It’s a must.

I had the time of my life!!!
Keisha_J, Aug 2022
We had an amazing time on this party boat. Everything about this tour was amazing from picking us up from the hotel to dropping us off at the boat. The host Ms. Sofia and the driver Mr. Brown made the experience that much better. The Dunns River your and the guider were patient and supportive. The lunch and free drinks were also good. I would do this tour again and again.
Real nice experience
Sam_S, Aug 2022
We had a real good time on this trip. Mama T and John made our trip fun and safe with a lot of good conversation. Snorkeling was a bit short on time. The Dunn falls experience was awesome!!! The trip back with music and dancing was epic. The crew were very professional. The DJ and host were awesome!!! Being on the open water was amazing. It’s on the pricy side but we definitely had a good good time.
