Lovely little place

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 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.
