I booked 22 people on a party boat for snorkeling and Margaritaville. It was my party plus another family of 5. Captain Cookie and the team were outstanding. They did an outstanding job . Snorkeling was great , the music & food amazing . The DJ was fantastic also . I wouldn't recommend Margaritaville. I also did a family catamaran... More

We booked 2 excursions through Island Routes. I did not know at the time that they were a booking agency that does not administer their own tours but rather places you on tours with their partner companies. The first tour we did through them was fantastic (Catamaran Cruise). Although it was cancelled due to weather, Island Routes quickly and easily... More

Only bad portion of our trip was with Island Route Tours (booked through Sandals). They left us wait for an hour...just for a ride back to the hotel following our swim with the dolphins! Also talked us into it with promises of swiming/snorkeling with sting rays (which did not happen and sounds like it never happens) and also told us... More

We took the catamaran cruise from Sandals Ochi Beach, where we were staying, to Dunn's River Falls and had a great time overall. The first part of the trip involved snorkelling on a reef not far from Ochi Beach. This was well organised and supervised with plenty of attractive fish to see in clear water. We then headed off to... More

I was aboard an Island Routes Catamaran for a cocktail cruise out of Sandals Ochi. It was a company sponsored event with over 80 passengers on board. We traveled just a few miles to Ocho Rios Margaritaville, with a snorkeling stop on the way. Island Routes Crew brought a lot of energy to the event & created a fun atmosphere.... More

The crew was excellent and made it a really great ride to and from the falls. The seas were a bit rough but the captain handled it incredibly well. The food could have been a bit better for the price but the rum punch was really good. I would do this trip again for sure.

My family and I experienced the Dunns River/ Catamaran cruise. The Captain of the catamaran was so rude the entire trip. Most his staff was the same way, and almost barking orders. For safety, maybe, but they left a bad taste in my mouth for this tour company. The Dj, and 2 other staff ( including the woman ) were... More
