Default dunn's river falls

We are sailing on Enchantment 10-29 with our five kids ages 7-14.. is dunn's river falls something you think would thrill them? Is it safe for my younger ones to climb without me having to worry?

We went on the falls in February and I noticed that a couple smaller children around age 7 to 10 were having a rough time standing and the little one was scared. There is a point they said half way up where you can get off but I never found it and I wanted to get off, only because I'm over 55 and I was slipping all over the place. Its over 600 feet up with running water (of course) and if you don't put your feet exactly where they tell you, you can slip. After it was over, I'm glad I did it but like I said, I am over 55 and I was POOPED. I would worry about the smallest child if I were you only that they would be frightened and it is a long way up.

"thrill" is probably a bit strong but they will have fun.

Pack water shoes for them & be very careful of the vendors. They can be a bit over-zealous to put it mildly.

You can take your kids to Dunns River Falls...you do NOT have to walk up the Falls, there is a stairway along side the falls that they can walk on and watch others climb. Very beautiful scenery!

After we finished the falls, the guides followed you up to your lockers and stood there waiting for their tip on the steps as you walked out. Have some singles ready or they will come after you.

I feel the same way my 7 year o ld was scared and couldnt finish. but we got off at the last stairs just befor the eaiest part. but at the time it look so steep. but my dh and 10 and 12 went ahead. they enjoyed it. I think there is two spots you can get off.
