Carolyn was very personable, made us feel at ease and enjoyed spending our day with her and Harry. Totally had a blast snorkeling the reef, chasing colorful fish, saw a stingray, too! The coral was beautiful, and her sailboat was pretty cool. We had never sailed before. If you're unsure, take some nausea medicine.

This review is long overdue.....we had a fabulous time on our tour of the Secret Falls and river tubing. Loxley was a wonderful tour guide and great person to spend the day with. He was wonderful with us and our kids and we liked him immensely. This day tour was the best part of our trip to Jamaica. The falls... More

While staying at Secrets st James we had to get off the resort and away from the resort planned activities. After seeing good reviews for these guys I called and scheduled an Ocho Rios trip to secret falls also known as Blue Hole, and a rubbing trip. Richard picked us up at 9 and we headed to blue hole where... More

My wife and I took a day sailing adventure with Carolyn. It was on a forty foot sail boat. We absolutely had the best time. We have been to Jamaica many times and taken more than one of those booze cruises.They were all the same no sailing just a motorized short trip to some tourist spot. Usually over crowded .... More

I had never been to sailing before we booked a day long sail with Carolyn Barrett's Adventure Tours, and did not really know what to expect. When we arrived at the Montego Bay Yacht Club, the first thing I noticed after eying the beautiful sailboat was the plank. THE PLANK consisted of a two-by-four, anchored from the dock to the...

We've been to Jamaica three times and toured with Carolyn each time. We were lucky enough to meet her five years ago and had the best tour!! Since then, we've been back twice and sought out Carolyn each time. The Dunns River Falls were an obligatory stop that Carolyn made sure we were able to enjoy with as little crowds... More

We had the true pleasure of taking two tours with Barrett Adventures during our recent visit to Jamaica. The first was to "Secret Falls" - and we were escorted by the owner of the company, Carolyn Barrett. To be honest, Carolyn is an "attraction" in her own right - a US-born Stanford grad who has forged a uniquely "maverick" trail... More

You will not find a tour guide that tries any harder or does a better job showcasing authentic Jamaica. This was our first trip to Jamaica, stayed at an AI and wanted to see some of the country beyond the confines of the beautiful resort. While we were clearly tourist, I didn't want to join in a tour bus experience.... More

Chantel and I just spent a fantastic half-day sailing charter with Carolyn Barrett and her team David and Tier. These folks went out of their way to make this excursion one we will not forget. Highlights include some of the greatest snorkeling we have ever done off the inner reef of Montego Bay, followed by a spirited open ocean sail.... More
