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.

Nice reef with great snorkeling. Would go there again for sure! It's beautiful and there lots of fish, colourful coral and other sea life to see and learn about.

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.

Snorkelling and scuba diving was good, Kelly's Watersports very professional and helpful! Not exactly what you would expect for a Marine Park, but still enjoyable.

Had about 45 minutes to snorkel the marine park, it was a wonderful reef with a lot of smaller fish and shells to see

The reefs are battered but not destroyed like in the Dominican Republic. There are still plenty of fish, rays, and an occasional turtle or nurse shark. Lionfish are abundant. I hope the local authorities will take them seriously before they overwhelm the ecosystem.

The coral is wonderful and the marine life so varied and colorful. Definitely worth the visit. We went twice during our 1 week stay.
