What You Can Expect

Montego Bay Shore Excursion: Dunn's River Falls

Explore Dunn's River Falls while in port!

After your ship docks at Montego Bay's cruise ship port, meet your local guide at the terminal and board your waiting vehicle for the trip to Dunns River Falls. Settle into your comfortable seat for the 1.5-hour drive to this natural wonder, located about 60 miles (97 km) east of Montego Bay. The drive winds along the island's North Coast Highway, a scenic route with lovely tropical island views. 

Arrive at Dunns River Falls, one of Jamaica's most famous natural wonders. After a short introduction on the natural history of the falls from your knowledgable guide, take the next 90 minutes to explore however you like. Climb up to the very top of the 600-foot (180-meter) falls to enjoy the stunning view of the surrounding tropical forest. For a more relaxed approach, swim in the natural lagoon at the bottom of the falls or take a seat on the deck and listen to the peaceful sounds of the running water. 

Opt to purchase a traditional Jamaican jerk lunch at a nearby restaurant and a rum punch cocktail to wash it down. After lunch, board the vehicle and enjoy the trip back to the cruise port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2017

We had a blast on this excursion. We had a small group of six, so we had transportation to ourselves. The guide and the driver were very kind and informative. On they way to the falls we stopped and tasted rum and shopped for 20 minutes and even scored some fresh beef patties. They climb up the falls was beautiful and the water was COLD but it was worth it. On the ride home we stopped for some fresh jerk chicken that was beyond delicious. I definitely recommend, but keep in mind this isn't for younger children.

Really good day, our guide Patrick was very helpful and informative throughout the day. Only hiccup was having to wait inside the port limits to be picked up by another driver who then took us to meet up with Patrick.

We had just a driver in our group of 2 to take us to Dunn's Falls. He was the best. Thank you.

This tour was worth the cost, especially since a Jamaican lunch comes with it...I will use this company to book my excursions in the future! Thank you

There was a lot of confusion about what bus to get on and when it would arrive to pick us up. The bus ride lasted 2-1/2 hours instead of the expected 1-1/2 hour trip we expected. The water fall climb was great and lunch was good. Great value and a wonderful time.

Great tour! Our driver Elvis got us to our location safe and sound. His companion was very sweet as well. After climbing the river we ended the tour with a jerk chicken lunch that was delicious. Thanks for the experience.

This was one of the top 20 days of my life because I got to do the Dunn's River Falls with one of my grandchildren and I could tell from the look on his face that he thoroughly enjoyed it. Pringle the driver of the van that took us was very knowledgeable about Jamaica and was very entertaining on the ride over and back.
This is what I didn't like: there was no one standing outside the compound holding up a sign identifying your company. It took just a little bit over an hour of trying to find my bus. Even then it was the bus driver that walked over and asked my name. We asked 4 different people that were helping tour people where we had to go and no one had ever heard of Viator! This is what should have been said on the directions: Go through the terminal and out the door, cross the road, the island and tihe other road, turn right and approach the big blue bus that is parked there. Get on that bus and they will take you out of the compound where you will have to get off of that bus and into a van that will take you the rest of the way.
I really enjoyed this Excursion but I didn't need the anxiety of finding the correct place to report to.

Our tour was, everything we wanted and more. Our tour driver(Elvis) was AWESOME. He did everything, to make sure we had the best time. Once we got to the falls, it just got better and better. Beautiful views, combined with a challenging, refreshing, fun climb. I would definitely recommend it.

A little confusion at first regarding where/what bus we were to take. Spent to much time at the verity store. Other than that, everything was great.
