we used Island routes tours, and booked a catamaran trip out to the pelican bar. It was interesting. The cruise was great, the crew was awesome.however, there was a minor miscommunication. They told us that was no food on the trip and there was snackfoods at the bar. so we got the lobster launch served at the pelican bar. It... More

Floyd's Pelican Bar is an extremely laid back, mellow, "forget your worries" place that is a must see. We paid a local $15 each for a ride there & back. I'm sure this is a rip off given that there were 4 of us = $60 for that ride.. but it was worth it. The hut itself is adorned with... More

Where else can you go out in the Caribbean Sea and drink Red Strip beer in a hut made of wood where you can see the water through the floor and the sky through the ceiling? Only in Jamaica. This was one of the highlights of our week stay in Negril. Wooden boat takes you out to the bar where... More

Our boat captain (Captain Ted) picked us up at the beach at our rental in Treasure Beach (Great Escape VRBO Listing #11863) and took us to the Pelican bar. Imagine a bar built out of random wood in the middle of the ocean and that's the Pelican Bar. Lots of tourists like us coming in on small fishing boats and... More

We almost skipped this because it was expensive (like all the other tourist destinations we tried to hit in Jamaica). But we finally found a fisherman to take us to this island for 20 bucks (instead of the 40 each being charged at Jake's). Get there EARLY -- like 9 or 10 am. I know that may be weird to... More

My experience was not good at Basil's Bar. He does not own his own boat he borrows boats that are used for fishing, they stink like fish. He overcharges the white people (doubles the price for beer) and laughs about it after they leave. I happen to know some of the local people, I was sitting at the bar without... More

I had come across this bar whilst scanning "Things to do" in Jamaica on tripadvisor. When I saw this bar, I knew it was a must for my husband and I. Our driver took us to the closest point from our hotel and we paid US$10 each to get there and back. We stood in metre deep crystal clear waters... More

A cool 20 minute boat ride out, saw tons of dolphins and our boat captain let us stop and watch them jump- cool! The bar itself looks sketchy from afar, but its actually quite sturdy. you'll be offerred an ice cold red stripe or another beverage upon arrival. There's flags, names, pictures from so many different areas of the world.... More

How exciting it was the first time my grown daughter and I visited Floyd's Pelican Bar. Roger at our guesthouse in Treasure Beach, Nuestra Casa, arranged the trip for us with boat captain Kanut. Off in the distance was this little hut shaped dot in the water. As it grew bigger and bigger, we were more and more excited. The... More
