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. 

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

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.

My experience was wonderful. The driver/tour guide were great. The tour guide gave us history on different landmarks as we went along. She explained everything we were about to do once we got to Dunn's River Falls. Our lunch was fantastic.

We booked this as an excursion on a cruise. It was perfect. We LOVED the hike. It was a bit of a drive but well worth it and we all got a nap in! My struggle is always what to tip! Keep the cash handy!

Still can't believe we got this tour for this price. Great deal! Basically, we had a taxi ride from the port to the falls of about 90 minutes. We were nearly the first to arrive at the falls and had to wait a few minutes for other people to show up so we could go as part of a group.

The falls were a great experience and highly recommended. No problem taking photos. I wore close toed sandals and they were fine.

Afterwards, we stopped for lunch of jerk chicken and other tasty local foods with a drink. Then back to Montego Bay. Driver offered to stop for shopping but we said no.

I highly recommend this tour. With all of the activities can be done here in Zjsmaica. This is definitely on the top of the list. The driver and tour guide where very nice and our tour guide was not only beautiful, she described various tourist attractions that where along the way to the falls.

Marcia was a great guide. She told us about everything we passed on the drive, she also gave us insight to the Jamaican lifestyle. At the falls she told us exactly where to go and what to do. She was waiting for us when we got out of the beautiful falls. Made sure we had lunch and was very helpful.
