The Dunns River Falls and Sightseeing Excursion is the most popular tourist attraction and a must-do for everyone visiting Jamaica. Your Dunn’s River Falls excursion guide will be ready to meet you at the Port of Falmouth and to take you on a journey of a lifetime up the Dunns River Falls. Your excursion from the port of Ocho Rios will start with a short 15min drive to the Dunn’s River Falls Park, through the scenic town of Ocho Rios before embarking on a climb of a lifetime!
Climbing the waterfalls at Dunn’s River is truly a unique and amazing adventure that everyone should experience at least once. The Dunn’s River Falls Park and setting is breathtaking, displaying mother nature at its best with incredible cascading falls which will challenge, refresh and delight visitors of all ages!
Upon your arrival to the Dunn’s River Falls the guides on site will explain that you can join hands and form a human chain to climb the falls better. Those guests who wish to skip the climb may wait at the bottom of the falls or in one of the cool collection pools which are accessible from the steps alongside the falls. Feel invogorated as the fresh water rushes against your body or just laze in one of the pools and enjoy the views and spectacular sights that surround you. For those who wish to climb the beautiful falls, this is where your adventure begins.
Water shoes or sturdy closed back sandals are required and are available for rent if you do not bring your own. You may climb the Dunns Falls with or without a guide, depending on your ability and comfort level. This is a challenging climb, but it is so worth it. Your Dunn’s River Guides are very helpful and will give you all the support and confidence you will need to accomplish this amazing unforgettable journey.
There are also several points along the adjoining path where you can easily access the river without having to climb the falls and these are just as cool to experience as the actual climb. After you complete your Dunn’s River Falls adventure, your guide will take you on a short sightseeing tour of Ocho Rios, filling you in on the history of Jamaica and stopping along the way for some shopping and picture-taking. You will also take a drive through Fern Gully, a beautiful rainforest, abundant in plant life. Check out the little craft markets along the roadside where you can meet some very quirky characters! After all this excitement you will be offered the opportunity to make a stop for lunch at the famous Scotchies which is a 15min drive outside of the town of Ocho Rios. Here you can enjoy a deliciously authentic local Jamaican jerk chicken or pork meal roasted over a pimento wood fire, alongside some rice & peas and bammy! If you like spicy, you will LOVE Scotchies, it is such a rare little treat worth the extra little drive.
Your guide will be on your time and will wait by your side, assiting you, escorting you, providing you with refreshments and giving you all the information and history you need to know about beautiful Jamaica!
