This was by far most favorite part of our Jamaica trip! If you are considering a visit, do it!! We hired a local guide through JuJu Tours to take us here. We drove to a small fishing village where he hired a fisherman to take us out to Flyod's on his boat. This costs about $20. You ride through a... More

Went to the Pelican Bar for the first stop in our excursion, took a boat from Basil's and ended up being the first customers of the day. We got some red stripe and sat back as we watched the bar fill up with people when boat after boat started appearing. We kept to ourselves but that was fine because everyone... More

Awesome bar. 4 of us went in July. We took a boat from Basils with a local kid named Xavier. No one else was there. Had a few Rum and Ginger Beers, smoked and swam. Played Dominos with the locals, went for a swim and they cooked us some fresh fish. One of the highlights from our trip. A must... More

If you are looking for a five star dining experience, look elsewhere! If, however, you are in the mood for something unique and laid back in the true Jamaican sense of the word, go see Floyd & his brethren at the Pelican Bar. Take in the island breezes, have some beer & enjoy the company at one of the few... More

It's hard to describe this place; you have to see it to believe it. About half a mile out to see, almost ant sized from the coast, lies Floyd's Pelican Bar. WOW. He built this place himself, being made of simple bits of wood, a straw roof and strung together with ropes and nails; this place survived Hurricane Sandy!! It's... More

Take a 45 minute trip from Treasure beach where we run into Dolphins or just a 10 Minute trip from Parrotte to get to this absolutely great place. Floyd, Candy, Andre, Richie and the crew will make sure you get the greatest sauce with the Coal Stove cooked Fish or Lobster- Great Music, Excellent Snorkelling so bring your gear, Should... More

I hate writing bad reviews but I feel I must. This reflects only on the excursion and not on Whitehouse. The excursion costs about 100$ and if you want to buy beer there or lunch which is only lobster or fish it will cost you 4$ a beer and 15$ for lunch. Over an hour to get there and then... More

A great day on the water from Sandals Whitehouse. We took the Island Routes Pelican Bar Catamaran Cruise on July 24, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. First about the cruise: You take a nice boat ride about two hours south east of the Sandals Whitehouse resort. You can sit on the main deck in the sun or under a canopy... More

We enjoyed the catamaran cruise to Floyd's but its just a shack on a sandbar. Beautiful setting though.
