Dunn’s River Falls, Margarita Ville By The Beach

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!!

Over decades Dunn’s River Falls has offered millions of explorers an instant connection to nature but also has concessions such as Blue Mountain Coffee, hair braiding and Baskin & Robins.

From Dunn’s River Falls your guide will take you on a short ride along the north coast and then either back to your ship or to the Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville where you can go on the pool slide, drink some cocktails, jump in the water trampolines, do some last minute shopping for rum and souvenirs or take a swim at the Margaritaville beach. Margaritaville is walking distance from your cruise ship pier.

    Hi there – we loved our driver. He was on time, pleasant and interesting. I like when they tell us about anything related to the local people and landscape – culture, history, facts and other things. It was a great day and we would use your service again.
    Thank you

    Sorry about my late response. My comments are only good. The driver was professional and accommodating. He had 2 different groups with different agendas and he worked with both to satisfy all our needs. I will definitely be recommending your company to any of my friends also traveling to Jamaica.

    Thank you.

    Hi Dwight,

    The excursion was wonderful. Steve, our driver, was very friendly and helpful. The only thing that bothered us was at the end of Dunes River Falls when we went through the local shops, we wanted to look, however, the people was very forceful and one even said we “didn’t associate with the poor people”, which is not how we are at all. That was a little scary for us. Otherwise, we had a wonderful visit!

    Thank you, Cassaundra E

    HI Dwight,

    I have nothing but good things to say about the experience! The driver was great, on time, gave us a small tour of the city and very friendly! Although the actual excursion was a little scary for me….everyone had a great time!

    I have a couple of groups travelling to Jamaica in Feb and April …. I will see if anyone is interested and let you know!

    I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The transportation was great and the excursion was awesome! I would recommend Karandas Tours and would love to come back. Thanks for a great experience!

    Re: Dunn's River Falls Excursion
    Hello, My family and I did enjoy our trip to the falls with your company. Our driver Steve was waiting for us in our hotel lobby and was very knowledgable when we asked him questions. He walked us right into the falls and paid for us. He told us to meet by the bus around when we where done. He said the fall would take us 1.5 hours. We told him the sheet we were confirmed said 3 hours, he said either was fine.

    Overall good experience.

    We took a tour on May 17th with Rudolph as our guide. He did an exceptional job, including finding a missing member of our tour. I would use this service again and advise anyone to use Karandas Tours.
