Lovely little place

Great food and drinks. The activities were surprising and you must go at night! Don't forget your swimsuit and remember to have it on before your boat trip :)

Went there on a party boat, which was our first mistake, but the only excursion available. The reef is dead and few fish to be seen. Don't expect any help from the crue with snorkeling.

We loved kayaking thru the Mangroves. If was so much fun! This is something the whole family can enjoy. It is very educational so the kids love it as well. Don't miss it.!

We loved the park. while visiting we had dinner at a restaurant fashioned from an old boat. You got to pick your live lobster from a live well in the boat. outside in the bay, there were huge tarpon that fought over scraps of shrimp we threw to them.

We took a snorkeling excursion with Dreamer Catamaran which ended with a tour through the Montego Bay Marine Park. It was way cool. All enjoyed and the crew of the cat were tremendous.

Talk to Mr. Shim, the director and arrange for a glass bottom boat tour. They are very knowledgeable about marine plant and animal life and they have a friendly staff. This is located at Pier 1.

Took a catamaran from our property that was for members (including RCI) This was a smaller boat than the 75 passenger and much nicer. Very festive sail but ocean under the water breath taking .

We took a catamaran cruise to snorkel at this marine park. It was amazing! The reef has sustained some damage, but overall it is in good condition and there was a lot of wildlife! We saw a lot of colorful fish, and a few jellyfish. The reef is large and we could have spent our entire week there snorkeling! The... More
