Do not use
Aug. 2021 • Family
Was sold this tour by TUI as family-friendly, even double checked it would be ok for my 21 month old. They do not sell it as a party cruise and if they did we would not have booked.

- not baby changing facilities throughout the whole tour
- music playing at an unbelievable volume. Damaging for small people's ears
- stopped for snorkelling to be told everyone needs to wear a life jacket, but didn't have one for my daughter.
- queued for 45mins for Dunn's River falls (why the hell do we need to queue we pre-booked?!) To be told my daughter could not take part, yet TUI states on their advert that anyone can take part from toddlers to seniors.

To add insult to injury our receipt said pick up time 9.15 and it didn't come until 10.45.

I agree with the other reviews saying that the tour was falsely sold, you spend the majority of your time either in a queue or in a mini-bus. Cruise left late so even less time on the water too.

Even if we just travelled as a couple I definitely wouldn't recommend. My partner still climbed Dunn's River falls and gave up half way through as was so slow and boring, the guides kept slowing it down so they do their videos! He then went up with my daughter part-way as she kept asking to go up (we didn't sign a waiver or use a guide!)

I will 100% be making a formal complaint to TUI as this trip was hell.

Don't Waste Your Time
Jul. 2021
We wanted to climb Dunn's River Falls and thought that sailing there on a catamaran would be fun. Wrong! The trip to get from Montego Bay to the catamaran took two hours partly because the tour guide stopped for an ATM/bathroom break. We literally drove right past the entrance to the falls. This caused us to be late to the catamaran. The guys on the catamaran were nice, but by the time everyone was equipped with snorkel gear and in the water, we were being called back to the boat.

Once we arrived at the falls, we were put into groups and assigned tour guides. This took forever. We ended up standing on the dock waiting for our guide for over half an hour. Then he dragged us up the falls because we were running late.

The catamaran ride back to the bus was fun, but loading up the bus and the ride back took hours. The tour guide, Stephanie, asked if people wanted to stop to shop on the way back. She said we would only stop if everyone wanted to stop. Numerous people said they wanted to get back to their hotels because they had dinner reservations or other commitments. We were already running late. She stopped anyway. In addition, the bus stopped two more times for bathroom breaks. We were told we would be back to our hotel at 5:30, but did not arrive until after 7:30 missing our dinner reservations. The excursion ended up being nine hours with most of that time spent sitting on a bus.

Next time we will make sure to read the reviews before booking an excursion.

Fun, but disorganized
Jul. 2021 • Friends
The meat of the trip (party boat, Dunn’s falls, snorkeling) was a lot of fun, but getting to and from Ochos Rios was anything but convenient. It was advertised as starting at 12:30, but we had to get picked up at 10am and didn’t get back till 8pm, despite the trip saying it would be only 3.5 hours. When we arrived at Ochos Rios, our group didn’t receive directions on where to go and were all confused. Further, our guide didn’t direct us to the boat during boarding, we didn’t have a wristband for entrance, and ended up just following other tour groups to the boat. Dunn’s falls were exciting and worth the excursion. The snorkeling seemed tacked on as we were directed to snorkel just in the water at the dock where our boat was. The water was murky and equipment subpar. Overall, still an enjoyable experience, just more stressful than it needed to be. Also DO NOT buy the Dunn’s Falls DVD! Half of the DVD was a promotional video for Jamaica and the other half was poor video quality. I’d highly recommend buying ahead of time or on the boat a waterproof see-through phone case for photos. It’s the play.

Bad liquor made me sick
This excursion was alright . They take you to a beautiful spot to snorkel and to Duns River Falls. Not much for entertainment. They serve alcohol on the way back and I guess they use some cheap liquor because after stepping off that boat I have not been the same. Instantly after drinking my stomach started burning. When I came back home I was in so much pain that I end up in the ER. I have left 3 weeks bow and still recovering.

We took a leap with ‘Cool Runnings Catamaran’!
Jun. 2021
After taking the time and researching the best & safest options for our stay in Runaway Bay my party decided to take an all-inclusive catamaran ride with ‘Cool Runnings’ . After seeing many disappointing reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to move forward with the purchase of the cruise which was a huge mistake! Our shuttle ride pick up and return was one to remember (but not in a good way) we were packed up from our hotel. The driver nor the assistant did not enforce any COVID-19 safety precautions on board the shuttle. None of the customers were in compliance with wearing the mask upon travel on shuttle which was completely ridiculous, our bus was full to capacity! We arrived at the port the cruise was supposed to leave at 12:30 pm which we did not leave the dock until 1:30 pm cutting into our cruising time by a whole hour! We purchased an all-inclusive cruise which was supposed to include lunch, unlimited alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks and roundtrip shuttle. But of course we were only provided one dry and cold beef patty for lunch, 1 rum punch which was watered down. Upon returning back to the hotel we turned around for someone's food, they left behind, made a bathroom stop for select passengers when the country has a curfew and my party had other plans: (COVID Testing and dinner reservations off the resort)! Nothing about this catamaran ride was true to what was described or displayed online. This was a complete fraud and I would not recommend this company to anyone traveling to Jamaica looking for a great time on a cruise. It's a complete waste of money and time. You will have more fun laying on beach… We are requesting a full refund ASAP!!

Dunn’s River Party Cruise
It was the best $91 we spent! We had such a blast!! Now we’re waiting to receive our footage from Dunn’s River. We’ve not received it hopefully we’ve not been scammed on that part! However other than that everything was GREAT!

Dunes was very good the rest of the Trip was terrible!
Jun. 2021 • Family
Good morning,
I was very disappointed with your customer service! I previously sent several messages with questions about this trip and didn’t get a single response. Secondly the description for this excursion is very misleading! There was no snacks available, we only had time to have two drinks so to say unlimited drinks is false because after the Dunn’s and the Snorkeling it wasn’t any time because we had to go back to land! The entertainment was not good and this should never be described as a party cruse! The speakers didn’t work most of the trip! I would like to request a full refund as this was false advertisement for what we were suppose to get and the service on the boat was well below the industry standards! Will you guys respond to me or will my messaging not be read as it was not in the past?

Thanks John Crenshaw!

It's Lit!
Jun. 2021
This was our favorite tour while we were in Jamaica. Although we didn't see any fish during the snorkeling, the food prior to departure, the sail to Dunn River Falls, the climb up the waterfall and the party on the way back were all LIT AF! We will definitely return. FYI, I do not recommend this tour for kids.
