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.

Pelican bar is amazing. The food and drink are a bit expensive, but worth every penny. This little hut serves fish fresh out of the water in the most amazing jerk sauce you have ever tasted. We took a private excursion with Captain Dennis' 2nd Captain, "Captain Kevin" . The whole experience was wonderful and authentic.

We first went to Pelican Bar in 2006, before the rest of the world discovered the place. Just a few of us, a hammock, and an ice chest with drinks on the honor system. Of course we had to go back. Our names are still carved in the log along with a slew of others. Great for Floyd (who we... More

This is something that you cannot describe, you must experience it. This is a bar with some food, built on sticks out in the sea! You drink beer, eat crab and everyone is your friend. Swim or sun bath or sit - no agenda, no pressure - no problems mon! Beer and good cost, but inexpensive. Tips suggested. Stay as... More

This is a neat little bar out in the middle of the ocean made out of wood! There's really nothing to do there at all, but sun and have a drink or two or three --- but just being there is just unique! You can go swimming - the water is waist high out there in the middle of the... More

This was a fun trip to see the bar built on stilts. They say you can eat here, but I only saw one small table with benchs by it and it was being used for a game. We choose not to eat, because of the lack of space & tables. It is quite small inside. It was fun to have... More

We visited in the off season during late Oct. Not sure if this is an overpriced tourist trap during high season, but we were they only ones there. Our Jamaican buddy drove us from Negril to Black River. Down at the wharf we asked the local fishermen for a ride. Big John stepped forward and said he would do it... More

Was totally amazed by the owner's creativity(Floyd) and boldness to build these structures in the middle of the sea.It's actually in St.Elizabeth,near Black River,Parottee beach,Been there twice,and plan to go back when I'm in the area.The food and drinks were good,plus is a very friendly guy.Take a flag to pin up in the hut.
