Cool Runnings Catamarans is a cruise up the coastline of Jamaica, from Mahogany Beach to Dunn’s River. If you are looking for a great way to spend a day on the water with your family in Ocho Rios then this is the way to go!
Start sailing at 12:30 pm and enjoy 30 minutes snorkelling at a reef with amazing underwater sights. Snorkelling equiptment is provided for each passenger. Life jackets are compulsory and weaker swimmers get red ones so that they can be clearly seen by crew members.
Once back on board, the sail continues up the coast to Dunn's River Falls which is one of Jamaica’s most stunning natural attractions. Ocho Rios got its name because it is said to have eight rivers, the English translation for the Spanish term, Ocho Rios. Dunn’s River is by far the most spectacular of these. All passengers are given bands that allow them access to the Falls and a guided tour to climb the falls ensues. If any passenger chooses not to climb, they can either walk up the steps beside the falls, so that they can take pictures and enjoy the scenery without the climb, or they can swim in the sea and stay on the beach until their friends and family members return.
The climb of Dunn’s River Falls takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes, after which everyone boards the boat and this is when the party action begins. Pulsating Reggae music and other types of dance music play to a back drop of Caribbean sea, sun and land marks of the coastline as the boat sails back towards the pier. Complimentary Rum Punch, fruit punch and Red Stripe are served freely.
