Wow where do I begin, let me start by saying this women and her crew Mark deserve 1000 stars. Our morning began with Carolyn picking us up at our villa with no extra charge. Our ride was decades worth of knowledge about history not only about Jamaica but the Caribbean itself. Accurate stories I will remember for the rest of my life. We arrived at the marina and walked a short distance to the dock where Mark was waiting to get us on board a gorgeous sail boat with facilities and all. Fresh drinks alcoholic and none, on deck and cold. We took a short cruise out the the reef and enjoyed more amazing stories and views. We then anchored up and got in the water. Instantly we were swarmed by fish waiting for us. We snorkeled for about 30-45 minute until my wife and son were a bit overwhelmed, not much experience snorkeling for my son. Carolyn was so nice and escorted them back to the boat and provided life jackets and even a float that provided them with enough views and comfort for hours while we went back out( 2 of us) for 3-4 HOURS. We saw everything and she did a lot of free diving to provide us with some shells, and souvenirs. Learned so much and saw even more during this private time. Skip the hustle and bustle of those packed trips and get a personalized experience with the Barret crew. I even suggest doing her multiple day tours or sails. If not use here as a taxi guide for single events or airport transfers. You wont be disappointed. Words cant describe the service and memories we will have. Thanks again Carolyn and Mark!!!!!

We booked a half day sail with Carolyn several weeks before our trip to Jamaica. She was very responsive via email and communication was great. Our trip was terrific. Both my husband and I have been sailing many times, and this did not disappoint. Carolyn is a delight, and is very knowledgeable about the history of the island, telling us many stories about the various landmarks we passed. Snorkeling was fun, and unlike other tours that were there, we were not on any time schedule, taking as long as we wanted in the water. At one point on our sail, we were flanked by a dolphin family for several minutes which was magical. The sail was just lovely. Carolyn is a very, very experienced captain, and Mark and she make a great team. We are not fans of big, organized, ‘touristy” tours that process hundreds of people a day. Our outing on the Lark was very laid back and personable, and we would certainly recommend Barrett Adventures for anyone who prefers something more personal.

Carolyn is an amazing host! I emailed her a few days before we wanted to go snorkeling and she responded herself promptly. We were picked up at 8am on the day of our trip (exactly at 8am!) and after a short ride from our hotel (Jewel Grande in Montego Bay) we arrived at the yacht club, boarded her personal sail boat and proceeded to a beautiful reef. What’s awesome about Carolyn and snorkeling with her is it is private, go at your own pace, stay out as long as you wise, etc. We will never do a booze cruise and laughed at those poor people that got to spend 15 mins on the reef in a small circle. Definitely book with Carolyn!

My boyfriend and I booked a snorkel trip with Carolyn and did not regret it. You can find some snorkeling off the beaches but they're not going to look anything like what we saw. She picked us up from the hotel promptly at 8 am (we were staying at Jewel Paradise Cove) headed to the Yacht Club in Montego Bay. We took a short boat ride to the marine park and it was such a beautiful flourishing coral. It was fun to feed the Sergeant Major fish, they love the crackers. Carolyn is super knowledgeable about all the sea life so I felt very safe and liked learning about everything! It was such a nice personal, friendly experience I highly highly recommend. You don't need to worry about bringing beverages cause she had a whole ice chest full of a large assortment of drinks. Bonus, I told her how I was looking for the good stuff Blue Mountain Coffee and she hooked it up for me! Now I can think about our amazing trip as I sip my coffee.
