Travel along the scenic north coast from your resort or Cruise Ship until we arrive at the world famous Dunn’s River Falls first thing in the morning to avoid the huge Cruise Ship crowds. This way you get to enjoy your visit of the falls more! 

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 45 minutes) 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. 

After you have finished climbing, its time to relax and have fun at the same time. 

Your driver/guide will take you for a 15 minute ride across town until we arrive at the White River for your Rafting experience. On your way to the river, you will get a taste of Jamaica as you pass through local neighbourhoods. 

When you arrive at the White River, you will be briefed and introduced to your Raft Captain. Life vest are also available for those who prefer these and there are changing rooms and bathrooms at this point. As a rule, each 30 foot Bamboo Raft can carry two persons or two adults and a small child and your Raft Captain. 

On your trip down the river you will go through seven gentle rapids and placid pools. The tropical scenery is amazing as you glide down stream on this 1 hour and 20 minute lazy relaxing journey. This is a great tour for families and river Rafting is an especially perfect romantic experience for couples. 

After you are finished, your driver/guide will then take you back to your cruise ship. However, you also have the option of going to the Island Village shopping centre or Tajmahal shopping centre which are both walking distance from your cruise ship pier. Here you may do some shopping for souvenirs at the Harley Davidson Store or go do the pool slide at Jimmy Buffets famous Margaritaville.
