We went on a snorkel excursion with David & Fire, VERY knowledgeable and friendly. Can't say enough about them. then we did zip lining and that was another awesome time. At the zip line we had Harry and I think Dave, great guys and a lot of fun.

We’ve not long come back from our fantastic Jamaican Adventure that we booked through Carolyn at Barrett Adventure… and without a doubt it was an adventure in it’s truest sense! Carolyn and her team Richard & Loxley were just great! It truly felt like we travelled with family as they made us feel so welcomed. Carolyn was very efficient in... More

OUTSTANDING! just to start this review. In fact OUTSTANDING again! My family and I signed up for the snorkeling tour and Carolyn's secret falls and tubing. From the moment Carolyn picked us up at our hotel it was clear she was professional, knowledgeable and courteous and put my entire family and friends at complete ease. Both of our adventures were...

We were a family of ten with three small children (ages 7, 5 and 3) and seven adults in their 20s and 30s and two in their 60s. We have been on Caribbean cruises six times in the past, but this was our best cruise excursion by far. Our driver, Deacon, met us right on time at our cruise ship.... More

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
