Me and my best friend were on 7 mile beach when I saw the island across the way. After inquiring with Dominic (our driver) he said we could catch a boat there and eat lobster on the island. We went to the island on the glass bottom boat which was really enjoyable. The best part was we took a tour... More

We commissioned one of the Glass Bottom Boats (Suzies cruise) to take us out to Booby Cay Island to look around a bit and have lunch.. I was a little skeptical because I am not a huge sea food eater but I figured why not give it a try! The ride over to the island was nice as our guides... More

We went to Booby Cay as part of a snorkeling trip with Captain Moses (highly recommend Moses...he was so much fun to be around and very professional too...we went on another snorkeling trip with him a few days later). After snorkeling, we went to Booby Cay to explore the island. Lobster was not in season while we were there. It... More

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
