We took a catamaran snorkeling trip to this marine park. The water was absolutely beautiful and the fish were amazing. We even saw some rather large lion fish. The water was nice and clear and the temperature of the water was perfect. We were there the last week of January 2014.

This is a pretty reef with lots of sea life. It was disappointing that I saw discarded cans and bottles. Not totally surprising as it is usually a stop for the so called "booze cruises".

We were able to snorkel in the marine park. It was so cool seeing the bed of fish come to the top when you threw either a ripe banana or bread in the water.

A bit more colorful than some places but pretty deep water and reef and not a lot of fish visible up close.

Our Dreams catamaran stopped here so we could go snorkeling. My son was tentative then next thing I knew, he was in the water with me. We saw lots of different fish along with some sea urchins. The ocean was a bit rough so we didn't stay long but it was a great experience!

The fish are plentiful, but the coral has been seriously damaged. Still, when the water is clear, you can see 100 feet.

Chose to dive here on an excursion. Was not disappointed. Saw more fish in the Marine Park than we did anywhere else we dove. Also, there were several "swim through" areas. Saw a dolphin, seemed to want to play! Best diving in the Montego Bay area.

We went on a Catamaran to go snorkeling at the Marine Park. Two of the people in our party have never snorkeled before. The crew was helpful and we all had a great time.
