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

We were in Montego Bay for my wedding, and my dad booked a day tour through Barrett adventures and it was great! Richard was our guide and he was just great! Very friendly, informative and had great information about the island. We went to YS Falls, Black River and Negril all in one day. Richard was great! Has a very... More

This was our first time to Jamaica and I am so glad we chose Barrett Adventures for our tours! We were a group of 10 with several small children. 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.

The secret falls in Jamaica was one of the coolest things we have ever done. There were only about 15 other people there the whole day and the guides made us feel as though we were the only ones there. I would say that it is pretty far away from Montego Bay, where our cruise ship docked, but our driver... More

Being the tour coordinator for the four couples going on our cruise I did my research and chose Barrett Adventures. Carolyn was great to deal with and we developed a great rapport before we even left for our trip. We chose the secret waterfall and tubing and Carolyn was our guide and driver. She knows anything and everything about Jamaica... More

Our snorkel and sail was amazing. Carolyn took us out and was so fun to be around. We learned so much about the island and she has such a love for Jamaica. We were so happy to get out of the all-inclusive prison and spend some time with someone who loves what she does. Any tour with this company would... More

Don't hesitate to book with Carolyn. It will be the best decision you make in Jamaica. Our driver, Richard, is awesome. They just don't make 'em like Richard any more! You'll feel safe and just be able to enjoy! Book with Barrett Adventures as your tour company. Your search ends here.
