One of the best things to do in Jamaica is to rent a private catamaran go to 7 mile beach to hang out where the sand is powder soft and than take a ride to Ricks Cafe. Jump off the cliff if you’re looking for a thrill, have a drink and enjoy the sunset :)

Note, we did the cruise from our hotel and it was not enough time at the beach (only 1 hour) and Ricks cafe (1 hour also). Really wish we would have done private charter and stayed for as long as we wanted.

Go on a Sunday when it is Adults only. Also, be prepared to do the cliff jump, in my opinion you can't go and not do it. Its not the biggest, but there are a lot of people watching. The water is crystal clear so it feels very safe, although they make you do a slightly smaller jump before allowing you to do the biggest one to check you are capable.

You could alternatively get a taxi here and spends hours, but the Catamaran was good fun. All drinks included on the boat, plus catamaran and ricks visit for $55 each seems good value. Drinks at Ricks are extra.

This was worth every penny. Actually a bargain for 74.00. We booked through our Amstar Rep at our resort. Bus took us to Margaritaville then we boarded the catamaran after about 1 1/2 hours. First stop was snorkeling. Booze and snacks were flowing on the cruise.
Next stop Ricks Cafe. That was so much fun. The transfer from Catamaran to the taxi boat was a little rough due to rough water that day. Probably would not recommend this to anyone with mobility problems.
Staff was so much fun and engaging. Recognized guests who were celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
This is a must do when in Negril.

Just not worth it, the boat rarely stops at Ricks, claiming it’s to choppy but we just parked for an hour to snorkel. I stay right next door to where it’s located and it’s back early just about every evening. They will bus u Ricks but that cuts the open bar (one dude Garfield serving 50 or so guests) by at least an hour. Hit one of the smaller boats like the red stripe boat up n ull b tight w proper drinks. Oh don’t forget to grab ur bag of cheese snacks when u do get to the bar, rotfl.

Thanks for the review.... a few points to note We ALWAYS try and get into ricks cafe, and we dont CLAIM it to be choppy, if the ocean has strong waves rolling or the wind is picking up then we would rather have our guest safe than going over to Ricks where they may get hurt, while transporting them,,, We DO NOT cut the open bar as you get your full cruise time and then we bus you to ricks cafe, if you go on any cruise and you go over to ricks cafe that takes that time out of the cruise, so if you actually understand the time on and off the boat, you get your full time and than some extra when we have to use the bus to take you to ricks. As a company i have no issue you pushing another company, we are all here to make your time enjoyable, but please do not stretch the truth while doing so, we have Elderly, children and non swimmers onboard and i personally would rather see them safe than go over to shore and run the risk of them being hurt in the process.

I really don’t understand why you would leave this sour review. 1) We cannot control the ages of people that book the cruise 2) YOU WERE ADVISED .. via email before the cruise and on the beach before the cruise that RICKS CAFE had been closed by jamaica for not following COVID protocols, you could have cancelled your trip then, Jamaica is under a strict evening curfew, all the boats sail back on the sunset, you are advised of the curfew before you arrive into jamaica and throughout your stay. If people get a little merry and dance then as long as they are not aggressive or rude to any guests then we let them enjoy themselves that’s why they are on vacation to have fun..

I’ve been on a bunch of catamaran cruises but this by far was the best. We boarded from Margaritaville and it took us out on the ocean. We were unaware that snorkeling was available so that was a pleasant surprise. I’m usually against water activities but it was amazing! We got to see fish and other ocean life. On board they provided unlimited drinks and snacks. The captain and crew were very friendly and welcoming. At the tail of the cruise we were taken to Rick’s Cafe which was ideal because we stayed only a few hotels down. We had an option to stay there or go back on the cruise to margaritaville. We choose to stay and eat delicious food and jump off the cliff! We couldn’t have hoped for a better experience. It’s essential 3 excursions for the price of one.

Saw this excursion hours before the pick up time of 1:50pm at our resort. Emailed to ask if they could include my daughter & I and quickly got several quick responses confirming. Payment options were given and a receipt emailed.

We were picked up by bus and brought to Margareitaville for drinks before boarding the catermaran. Our host was awesome in assisting with taking a few pictures before and during our excursion.

Our temperature was checked again before boarding. The rules as it related to covid, being served, was expressed again. All the crew members were friendly and awesome. I think I was the only non swimmer and was encouraged and helped to enjoy.

The view was awesome!the caves breath taking with the sparrow birds and the music increased from old to new and a good selection.

When brought back on land we were all dropped off. Please bring change for tipping. It was well deserved.

The whole trip was awesome only thing wrong was that we were not told you would have to walk from margaritaville to the boat in about 3 ft of water we had shorts on and were soaked the whole time. If you do this wear bathing suit with cover up and take something to put your money in. Crew was great especially Daniel he was friendly and talked to every one as if he knew you forever. I would highly recommend this trip

The catamaran was so fun! Got to snorkel over the reef and went to Rick’s cafe for some cliff diving. On the way back got to learn some dances and see a beautiful sunset! Music playing the whole time and free drinks the whole time! Can’t wait to go again next year! (Only downside is I wish we had more time at Rick’s... but really it was longer overall because it was like a dance party coming back!)

Horrible cruise and horrible tour provider. If you want to know how she is just read her responses to complaints. She's not professional or compassionate so why support her business. I definitely would have not left a bad review if she would have been a bit more pleasant but when someone comes to you with a concern all they get is anger and sarcasm. As a travel agent of over 20 years, I have never experienced such unprofessionalism in my life. I do not recommend this tour at all, and I hate leaving bad reviews, but this was warranted. Snorkelers were left in the water as the boat was taking off, no music, etc.

If you do not stop with this you will receive a letter of CEASE & DESIST from our attorneys to your home and business address in Illinois You are now harassing us with slander and bullying tactics, you are maliciously trying to discredit our company across the internet instead of leaving one review you are posting numerous reviews… as you didn’t get what you wanted ( a free cruise) even after viator refused your refunds as you went onto the cruise This is no longer a conversation I will be having on here, we did our job and no one from a full cruise had one issue or complaint except Your group that had the choice NOT to sail You didn’t call me off the cruise you sent a text and I responded that if you want a bus for 18 person we don’t cover that , our bus is complimentary from resort to Margaritaville and back.. Your altercations before the cruise are not for our company to fix , there was no trouble or issues onboard and that’s our priority There are no his side/ her side… this happened before you got on the excursion, we are not police, we are there to make sure the excursion you are on has no issues and there WERE ABSOLUTELY NO CONFRONTATIONS OR ARGUMENTS OR VERBAL ABUSE OF ANY KIND ONBOARD .. or after the cruise ..! As you pointed out in your review you were already angry before you got onto the excursion, none of that being down to the excursion or the staff onboard It was an altercation between two lots of grown adults BEFORE the cruise started both have which have paid for their cruise
