Highly recommended! Booking with Barrett Adventures was quick and easy. The owner, Carolyn, picked us up at our hotel. She was very friendly and accommodating to our party. We were looking for a peaceful, 3 hour sail in the AM. We felt totally at ease, sat back and relaxed the entire time. It was a nice change from larger, party... More

Everyone at Barrett Adventures was great! This was planned last minute (while on cruise ship in route to Jamaica) via email and from beginning to end the staff at Barrett made everything easy. Four adults (40's) contacted Carolyn via email as we did not know what to do in Jamica and we were looking for a trustworthy private tour company.... More

Five of us wanted a 9 day tour of the island before my daughter's wedding. We gave Carolyn a budget and explained what we were looking for, ie a taste of real Jamaica in moderate comfort and full days but with a good meal in the evening .We managed to visit 13 out of the 14 parishes in Jamaica.

We booked the Bracco horse-back riding and Cranbrook flower forest tours. Our scheduled driver had a family emergency so we were lucky enough to get Carolyn herself as our guide, what a treat! Throughout the entire day Carolyn was a non-stop fount of island history you won't hear on any other tour. Her knowledge of and passion for Jamaica is... More

My family spent five days in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica this past Christmas and we wanted to get out on the water. In searching for a half-day or longer cruise, it became clear that there were very few options outside of the booze cruises. We found the Barrett Adventure website and looked it over, decided to take the... More

I contacted Barrett Adventures before we left for our cruise. Barrett Adventures responded promptly and answered all my questions. Our drive picked us up from the cruise port and drove us to the Blue Hole and then to our tubing advenure. The Blue Hole/Secret Falls was one of the best excursions I've ever done. Our guide was incredible. He was... More

Loxley was our driver for two days and was he ever wonderful! He greeted us on the first day with a warm smile and we had such a great time with... More

Carolyn is very good at this. She has real, personal local knowledge about Jamaica: not just the place, or the sites, but what it's like to live there. Good stories, looked after our small group very well. We all had a good time with her. I recommend without reservation.
