Booby Cay is a quaint and beautiful little island. Fun to explore, lay on the beach and snorkel. Nothing extraordinary.

Booby Cay is a short, relaxing boat ride away from 7 mile beach and totally worth the trip. Our guides from YaMon Redstripe Catamaran (they were awesome, check them out!) cooked us lobster on the grill while we sipped on drinks. It was a wonderful & relaxing getaway from the beach crowds. There were other boats there & there was... More

Spent a great day snorkeling and exploring with Roger on the Sun Baby boat. We were hoping to do some spearfishing and get lots of fish and lobsters to grill up once we go to Booby Cay Island. Unfortunately we only scored one tiny lobster to split between 4 of us! But it was a gorgeous setting and nice spot... More

Came here off a snorkeling tour. Had I known a few things I would have been more prepared. 1. Yes there is lobster and our snorkel tour guide cooked it up and served to us. Also he had caught a tuna earlier and we had that. Lobster cost $20 each, wish I had known. Captain settled up with local lobster... More

Years ago when we first started coming to Jamaica, we took a glass bottom boat ride, snorkeled and then had fresh lobster on Booby Cay Island. One of the best days ofmy life I have to say. There is no lobster on beach anmymore, but dont hesitate to stop by anyway. Youcan purchase a cold beer from the locals who... More

I always go to Booby Cay for at least 1 evening when in Negril. Usually have a friend cook up some lobsters for us. Usually we have the island to ourselves. Sometimes there is the old lady selling trinkets and Red Stripes.

Go for the fresh grilled lobster experience, not for the ambiance. It's just a wild little island where you stand around a makeshift table to eat your lobster and have to pee in the bushes. Some people were selling shells. $20 and up for a lobster. We combined that trip with an excellent Sunbaby snorkel tour.

The island has trails to walk through! There were people selling some things there, but they were rude. The water was okay, but not as clear as 7 mile beach.

We came upon a fully nude (and we believe copulating) couple from one of the resorts across the water. I think those resorts think they own the island and can behave that way wherever. Very disrespectful to the locals. And gross to visitors.
