So we kayaked there from Negril and as soon as we reached shore 2 youngsters tried to help us pull the boat up to the sand and we politely said, "no thank you." They then tried to sell us cooked lobster which we understand this island is known for. We just wanted to look around a little. We then came... More

This little island could be amazing! However, it is full of trash. The food prepared was good, but I feel it is a place for the guides to get together and get high while you stand around and wait. We were going to tour a little but all we found was trash and decided not worth it. They only had... More

We stay at Point Village and looking out from our balcony is Booby Cay Island. Some of the people here make the swim over there but for me it's too far to swim. Take a water taxi and bring your snorkel gear the coral reef around the Island is very nice. If you want you can get fresh lobster cooked... More

We took a private boat from our resort to Booby Cay Island on our last day. It was a bit windy but we were very glad we went. There was amazing snorkelling between the island and the main beach. We did see jelly fish there and tons of other beautiful fish. You can get lobster lunch on the beach but... More

We do this glass bottom boat trip over to the island almost every time we visit Negril. We use "Island Queen", her captain is "Jack Sparrow". We tend to go in the morning leaving around 10ish, stopping to snorkel over the reef if there are people who wish to do this. The boat is equipped with snorkel equipment and life... More

We took a boat tour to the island after snorkelling in a nearby reef. The island itself is beautiful. Depending on the time of day there might be a ton of other people there dining as well. We ended up arriving in the early afternoon with our tour and the island was packed, by in around 30 minutes the big... More

Ok this was our first time take the glass bottom boat over to BOOBY CAY ISLAND and we enjoy it from the beginning to end. Once we got our price down some two young men came close to shore and allow us to board the glass bottom boat that takes you over to BOOBY CAY Island. Me and my friends... More
