Relax during your short drive to the world-famous Dunn's River Falls where you'll climb 600 feet of cool refreshing water as it cascades over natural limestone terraces. Guides are provided to assist you when ascending the rushing waters as they plunge directly into the pristine Caribbean Sea. After this invigorating experience you're transported to Dolphin Cove where you are met by friendly hostesses and given a complimentary fruit drink. This unique cove surrounded by lush tropical jungle is home to our beautiful family of bottlenose dolphins, exotic birds, snakes and iguanas. There you can enjoy watching the dolphins at play in their natural habitat, the Caribbean Sea. Visit Little Port Royal, a replica of Jamaica's most famous pirate 'haunt' and witness pirates roaming through town. Browse through the largest gift shops of any attraction in Jamaica, stocked with the widest range of dolphin souvenirs, and visit our jewelry store and craft market for locally hand crafted items. Listen to the rhythms of the Caribbean music and sample the world-famous Blue Mountain Coffee and liquors at our very own 'Starbucaneers'. Have your hair braided and watch our local fashion show. Learn about our Jamaican culture and enjoy the amenities. At the conclusion of your tour you'll have the option of being dropped-off at a local shopping plaza for shopping time at your leisure and then make your own way back to your ship.
Note: Shuttle buses are available at 10-minute intervals to return you to your ship. You will not interact with dolphins on this tour. The Dunn's River Falls are the highlight of Jamaica and tend to be very congested. All guests participating in a tour that visits the falls should wear foot protection that can get wet. River socks are available for rent at the falls. The rocks at the falls are slippery. Climbing the falls is optional and at your own risk. Participants who do not wish to climb the falls may enjoy the small beach at the base. The walk to the beach is on a slope with many stairs, therefore participants should be in reasonably good health.

Review 1 for Dolphin Cove & Dunn's River Falls
I traveled with:Friends
Cruise Date Month:December
Favorite port:George Town, Grand Gayman
I want to go here next:Mexican Riviera
Date:December 31, 2012
The falls climb was fun (though harrowing and a bit scary at times). Trying to exit the park through the market of souvenir hustlers was not fun. Unless you want to part with a lot of money, get through it as quickly as possible. Dolphin cove seemed like a waste of time, since we didn't pay to interact with the dolphins. There were other animals to see but it was just meh.

Review 2 for Dolphin Cove & Dunn's River Falls
Date:November 19, 2012
The falls are great! The problem with this excursion is the market at the top. You are very pressured there, it takes away from the beauty.
The falls were gorgeous:) I would recommend this to anyone who loves beauty. The only thing I wish I would have known is that "climbing" the falls is literally "climbing" the falls. I guess I thought there were going to be man made steps or something for us to climb.....but nope you are literally climbing on the rock as the water has weatherd them. There was no way that I could have taken my 5 year old in the actual falls to climb. I would have had to carry her for parts of the climbing. Luckily we had an awesome tour guide lady take us on a private tour filled with local information and interesting facts (yes she expected a tip - but worth it!)
