So we made reservations and stayed at a nice trendy resort out side of Montego bay just to... More

Food was delicious and the view was awesome, was a bit chilly but was worth it. There was a bird there who was very entertaining trying to eat food of the tray ☺️

What can I say? Jamaica is a wonderful place you're so much beautiful scenery and places to see and go that I cannot even tell you. I would go back to any place I've been to and go to any place I haven't been on the resort tour guide if I had the chance and the money to do so.... More

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.
