What You Can Expect

Snorkel Cruise from Montego Bay

Snorkel in Montego Bay!

After morning pickup at your Montego Bay hotel, transfer to the port to board your luxury catamaran. One of two boats will be your vessel for the day, a 65-foot (20-meter) boat or a 53-foot (16-meter) boat. Both have loads of amenities and are staffed by an expert crew. 

As the boat leaves the harbor, find a spot on the deck to relax and watch the sails unfurl. Listen to the chill reggae music and view the coastal scenery from your vantage point out on the water. 

When the boat reaches Montego Bay Marine Park, you'll get a safety briefing and orientation from your crew. Put on your snorkel, mask, flippers and life vest, then jump in. This 5.2-acre (2-hectare) protected park has plenty to explore, and the crew will throw food in the water to attract the fish so you can get an up-close look. Non-swimmers and beginner snorkelers will receive personalized attention from the snorkel guides. During the 45-minute activity, a member of the crew will be taking photos, available later for purchase.

Climb back aboard the catamaran and head for Margaritaville, an entertainment complex founded by legendary musician Jimmy Buffet. While you cruise, step up to the onboard bar for a Red Stripe beer, rum punch or soda. When you reach Margaritaville, explore the trampoline, water slide or shopping arcade. 

Head back to Montego Bay, enjoying spectacular views and taking a dance lesson from the crew on the way. 

From the port, enjoy drop-off back at your MOntego Bay hotel after this 3-hour adventure.

Really enjoyed our experience! The crew was super fun and knowledgeable. Not only were they professional but they brought the Jamaican fun to the trip so be prepared! Don't forget to tip! They certainly deserve it.

What a great adventure cruising around on the Catamaran. There was plenty of room on the boat and you were able to see the crystal clear waters behind and underneath the boat depending where you choose to sit. We were able to move around to get the best view while the captain drove us to our destination. The tour crew were friendly, helpful and entertaining during the entire trip. When we reached the coral reef, there were plenty of fish to see. The photographers were able to capture images above and below the water giving us plenty of photo options for purchase. There were many options for drinks and snacks to choose between aboard. We ended the cruise at the infamous Margaritaville where we were able to swim around the mini water park, and enjoy some leisure time by grabbing a margarita or food and meeting other tourists who happen to be there as well. Overall, a great time, and I would highly recommend this tour to everyone I would definitely do this tour again!

The snorkel cruise was amazing! The staff was super friendly, fun and caring. They seemed to really love their jobs which is very refreshing! The cruise itself was fun the scenery was amazing. Snorkeling was so fun. They took us to the middle of the ocean and we saw a lot of different fish and beautiful reefs. The staff also made me feel safe and confident on the boat and out in the water. Also, they had cake for us because it was the 4th of July. That was great. It was really worth every penny.

This snorkel cruise was the highlight of our vacation. The boat and crew were great and the spot that they brought us to was wonderful. We brought our own gear but they have gear for all who need it. There was one small glitch in that they forgot to pick us up at our hotel, but they hired us a private taxi who got us to the boat safely and in time so no one had to wait for us. They had free drinks, both alcoholic and non, and after the snorkeling we went to Margaritaville and then back to the dock. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone who enjoys snorkeling and seeing a bit of the island.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We loved this cruise! The catamaran was clean and the staff was friendly and organized, both during the cruise and while snorkeling. I liked that they had a crew member in the water holding onto extra life vests and I saw many people request the vests once in the water and the crew member would kindly help them put it on. We thought the marine park was beautiful and wished that we had more time to snorkel. Drinks and snacks provided. My boys 13 and 16 loved Margaritaville- we did not go inside, as we only had about 40 minutes and spent the entire time on the water trampolines/slide.
Our only complaint is with the company that provided the transportation, Our vouchers requested that we contact the company to confirm a pick-up time and we called the day before left a message due to no one answering and 2 times the day of, again leaving messages with our phone number, but were never contacted. 20 minutes after our pick-up time, my husband found a representative at our hotel Holiday Inn and the Nexus rep acted like we should have known to come into the office, even though our vouchers stated that we needed to confirm by phone. We ended up making the cruise, but were disappointed with Nexus, as we had 2 other tours with another company on the previous days and that company had contacted us the day before our tour to confirm the pick-up time and showed up on time, as stated on the voucher. Loved the snorkel cruise- not the transportation company.

This was a good excursion that lasted a few hours. We boarded a catamaran with a very professional crew. They were very thorough in explaining what to expect if you are a first timer before the boat even left the dock, otherwise they told us to relax and have fun. They took us to a protected reef area 30-45 minutes, Margaritaville 30-45 minutes, and then a final cruise around the shores of Montego Bay. We thought the whole experience was great and we still had our evening to enjoy.

The crew was outstanding but the excursion lacked in actually sailing. We could have taken a taxi to the same spots that the catamaran took us.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2014

A little disappointing for the experienced snorkeler, not much to see, okay for the beginner. Jimmy Buffet was very disappointing, only one shop and it was so small you had to be careful turning around in there, you might knock something off the shelf. If you want to just relax on the boat and water, have a few drinks, then have a foot massage(females only) by the crew on the way back then it's okay.
