I did this combo pack through Royal Caribbean. It was called Inner Tubing and Dunns River Falls. It was the highlight of our entire trip, and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again! I don't know if I'm allowed to say it on here, but I just recently found a tour group called Peat Taylor that offers the same tours from Falmouth, but at a lower cost.

We were in Jamaica in May of 2011. We opted to go "on our own" to the falls. It requires a bus ride and admission into the falls. We arranged to pay for the falls and the bus ride together. I would recommend bringing your own water shoes, otherwise, you will be required to rent them. I would also recommend a waterproof camera. If you opt to bring your own camera that is not waterproof, your guide will offer to keep it for you and keep it dry...he will also expect a tip at the end of the trip. All that said, the Falls were incredible and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I am doing Dunn River Falls and river tubing with Phil Lafayette in three weeks. He has great reviews and even called me personally. The cost from Ocho Rios is about $60 or $65. From Mo' Bay about $90. He also gives you a nice tour. Hope we have a great trip!

Doing this on January 19th out of Falmouth. Using Knowjamaica... picked them because of good reviews here and on tripadvisor. Cost is $45 each plus we pay admission at the falls and at tubing. There are 4 of us going. Sounds like there are good private companies in Jamaica and costs seems about the same for all.

This wet and wild combo tour allows you to enjoy two of Jamaica's most amazing natural attractions; it's fresh water rivers, and amazing cascading falls.
You tour begins with a pick up directly from your cruise ship port or Ocho Rios hotel where our friendly driver/guide will greet you and take you on your wet and wild journey to Dunn's River Falls and later the White Water River Tubing.
