We visited Floyde's Pelican Bar on Feb 12 2015. A great time was had by all and the food and service was very good. This is a very unique place to visit and I recommend the trip to everybody.

We arrived at Basil's and Mike helped us into his boat for the trip out to the Pelican Bar. It is one of a kind. The drinks are expensive, but what do you expect, you are out on a sand bar. Sitting on the wooden planks and watching the rays and puffer fish...I could have stayed all afternoon...but then we... More

This is the coolest bar I have even been to. The lobster was the best lobster my wife ever ate. If you have the opportunity to go, this is a must. Great snorkeling, especially underneath the bar. Good drinks and just a great taste of the Jamaican culture. Just a wonderful day and experience. A memory of a lifetime for... More

We heard about this place in Negril and decided to get away from the beach scene and take a trip. First, we found an awesome driver (Junior Reid) at the roadside stand near Best of the West jerk in Negril. We negotiated a price for him to take us to Pelican Bar and YS Falls (basically an all-day trip) and... More

What a unique place, will never experience this anywhere else, for adults not kids, a must see, have to take a boat ride to the bar, suggesting grabbing a lobster meal before going over to bar, there is a little restaurant on the mainland before heading to bar

Swimming, fishing, cold beer, boat ride, incredible little shack in the water. This is a must see if you are visiting Negril or the YS Falls.

Engineering at its finest! You can approach the bar from the beach approximately a mile offshore. In the 10-person boat you go for your ride in the warm Caribbean to your authentic ocean front dining experience complete with bar, gift shop, snorkeling and dominoes. It doesn't get any better than that. Had parrot fish for lunch...fresh caught and prepared. Lobster... More

Yes, the location is superb. The bar is rough inside with no seating - a small plate of food and its busy, busy. One boat load after another. A real tourist trap. Went with Sandals, on a large catamaran - great fun, a great group of people. As we were leaving a guy turned up looking for his carved initials... More

Can't say enough except to say you have to experience it yourself. Knew nothing about it when I went and that made it better. So, guess what, lol (the wonderful Jamaicans say that)! Go and don't read aNYMORE; It's the best!
