We took a private boat from our resort to Booby Cay Island on our last day. It was a bit windy but we were very glad we went. There was amazing snorkelling between the island and the main beach. We did see jelly fish there and tons of other beautiful fish. You can get lobster lunch on the beach but... More

We do this glass bottom boat trip over to the island almost every time we visit Negril. We use "Island Queen", her captain is "Jack Sparrow". We tend to go in the morning leaving around 10ish, stopping to snorkel over the reef if there are people who wish to do this. The boat is equipped with snorkel equipment and life... More

We took a boat tour to the island after snorkelling in a nearby reef. The island itself is beautiful. Depending on the time of day there might be a ton of other people there dining as well. We ended up arriving in the early afternoon with our tour and the island was packed, by in around 30 minutes the big... More

Ok this was our first time take the glass bottom boat over to BOOBY CAY ISLAND and we enjoy it from the beginning to end. Once we got our price down some two young men came close to shore and allow us to board the glass bottom boat that takes you over to BOOBY CAY Island. Me and my friends... More

We took a glass bottom boat with Captain Moses. The crew of 3 was excellent! Stopped to do some snorkeling on our way to Booby Cay Island which was nice. Got to the island and was very disappointed..the place is filthy. Trash everywhere. They really need to get people there to clean this island up. Very rude woman trying to... More

Stopped here after snorkeling off the coast. Lobster was the best I had in Jamaica - not sure if that was because I was so hungry after snorkeling for 45 minutes, or if it was the open pit preparation. Regardless, it was excellent. Island is mostly wooded with a relatively small beach. Wouldn't be a place for hanging out for... More

We went to this island only because it was part of a 4 hour tour that included a lobster lunch on this little island. Go for the lobster & not for the scenery. If you want to see something fantastic, hire a boat to take you snorkeling on the nearby outer reef.
