This incredible tour begins with you being picked up directly from your cruise ship pier by one of our friendly driver/guides. He will then take you on a short journey along the north coast of Ocho Rios to the world famous Dunn’s River Falls. You may have heard about this truly popular and incredible 600 feet water falls that has challenged and fascinated families for generations.
Your tour includes admission to the falls and transportation to and from your cruise ship port. We generally take visitors to the falls first thing in the morning and avoid all the crowds, this makes climbing the falls more enjoyable.
Dunn’s River Falls is the number one tourist attraction in Ocho Rios and one of Jamaica’s natural treasures and definitely is a “must do” when you visit Ocho Rios. It has a truly remarkable atmosphere, within the layout there are beautiful cascading falls, which are a delightful challenge to all visitors.
When you arrive at the falls you will be oriented by our guides briefly before making the climb. There is a stairway adjacent to the fall that goes all the way down to the beach. At the base of the Falls on the beach is where you will start your climb of this 600 feet natural wonder, for all those of you who are adventurous. The climb is not hard, but an easily navigable fun experience.
For those who do not want to climb, but prefer a less adventurous experience, the beautiful impressive sights of the falls alone are worth it. These visitors may view the action from the adjacent stairways and the beautiful surroundings all to the sounds of gushing water on the falls. Dunn’s River Falls and park consist of a beach with water sports activities, a Craft Market, picnic areas and Food Court, but the main activity is climbing the Falls – which is a fun group activity!
The Park requires that you wear (Aquamarine) water shoes to make this wet but easily navigable climb. If you don’t bring your own they can be rented or purchased on property.
The park also provides guides to assist you with your climb. there is no charge for these guides but it’s customary to tip them. They take groups of fifteen or more persons on the climb up the Falls. They are really helpful during your climb and will help you to enjoy the experience more. However, using a falls guide is not mandatory and left up to your comfort level and confidence in making this journey. The climb to the top of the falls takes (approximately 45minutes) from the base on the beach.
If you do not want to continue your climb at some point during the journey or would like to start at a particular point on the falls, there are several points along the way of the adjoining path that you can easily access the River.
Be sure to bring your water proof camera as there will be many opportunities to take pictures of this unforgettable experience. However, if you forgot to bring your camera there are several photographers available to capture all your special moments. Dunn’s River Falls is a wonderful experience, we have taken groups who have made the climb up to three times in one visit!!
