While you’re in port in Montego Bay, take a shore excursion to Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica’s most famous sights. Swim and play in the pools formed by the waterfall, climb up the naturally formed terraces, if you wish, or hang out on the deck located next to Dunn's River to relax! Then enjoy a Jamaican lunch at a local restaurant (not included in tour price). Port pickup and drop-off are included.
When your cruise ship pulls into port in Montego Bay, meet your local guide at the cruise terminal and board your coach or minibus (depending on total group size) for your shore excursion to Dunn’s River Falls, about 60 miles (97 km) east of Montego Bay. During the 1.5-hour drive along Jamaica’s North Coast Highway, admire views of the Caribbean out the window. Dunn’s River Falls is one of Jamaica’s most beloved natural attractions, known for its lush setting and for its roles in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail and the James Bond movie Dr No. Often referred to as a living phenomenon because it’s continuously rebuilt from sodium and calcium carbonate deposits in the river, Dunn’s River Falls is one of the only waterfalls on Earth that empties straight into the ocean. After you arrive, listen to a quick introduction from your guide, and then enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to experience the falls however you wish. Put on non-slip water shoes (available for rental if you don’t bring your own) to climb up the 600-foot (180-meter) terraced falls, carefully walking up the ‘steps’ formed by the naturally chiseled rocks. Stop along the way to swim in one of the small pools that have formed on the different levels, and when you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with a nice view. Or if you’d rather relax, just hang out on the deck located near the river to admire the falls, or go swimming in the natural lagoon at the bottom. When your time at the falls is up, head to a nearby restaurant for a 1-hour lunch break. Refuel with a traditional Jamaican jerk meal, and relax over a beer or rum cocktail, if you wish (lunch and alcoholic beverages are at your own expense). When lunch is over, you’ll be returned to the Montego Bay port to re-board your cruise ship. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Montego Bay port for this activity.
