“Booby”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Had a great time at Booby Cay. Really appreciate that the island is unspoiled. Be prepared to swim/snorkel and don't step on the marine life to preserve the natural beauty. If you like fresh grilled lobster it's the place to be. Booby Cay is a beautiful natural setting.

“Nice side trip...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stopped here after doing Vincent's Glass Bottom Boat Snorkeling adventure. We took a small walk to the other side of the "island" which didn't take very long at all. We spotted lots of Hermit Crabs & butterflies but that's about it. There were a few people here selling this&that but not too much else to see. I wouldn't recommend making an entire trip JUST to see Booby Cay, but if you'r out that way, it's a nice side distraction.

“Private”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Booby Cay is a wonderful little Island. Not a lot of room on the island but it is very quiet. If you get a chance to swim to Booby Cay many ideas will go thru your head about the quite and peacefulness of this little Jamaican Jewel.

Amazing idyllic small island, wonderful boat trip out there and then to see the beauty of the island was fantastic. One of the best days of our trip. We also ate the fresh lobster from the barbeque, gorgeous!

“Good snorkeling, beach, grilled lobster”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Took excursion from Sea Shell Charters to Booby Cay Island. Excursion price was reasonable. Snorkeling was excellent. Grilled lobster lunch was excellent. Kevin and Omar were friendly and were great guides and cooks.
