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.

This was a fantastic trip. It was 6 adults in our group including three - ages 60, 62 and 79 that we snorkeling for their first time. They felt very safe, were quite thrilled with the experience and are eager to go again.

This tour was fabulous! We had leg massages and drinks on the boat. The snorkeling was our favorite part of the entire trip. Margaritaville was a good time too, although the staff was persistent on getting you to buy their ridiculously overpriced food and drink.

The crew was incredibly helpful everyone was geared to make the best experience for my family. When the engine didn't start right away, they communicated their plan and offered to accommodate any inconveniences with later schedules. My adult children appreciated the booze portion of the cruise. My only complaint is that by the time everyone gets in the water, it is almost time to bring everyone back in. Don't dally getting in the water. THE SNORKELING TIME WAS TOO SHORT! I would have cut off the time at Margaritaville: the bar/restaurant is dingy with a lot of pressure to buy something. The advertised sea trampoline and 100' water slide were not functioning or completely absent. The boat, the crew and the snorkeling were the fun part and well worth the tour!

This was my second time in Jamaica and second time doing this type of excursion.
This tour was amazing from start to finish. We were just two young women hanging out in Jamaica for the week and was never hounded nor was our personal space every invaded. The tour included small snacks and unlimited Coke and Rum. They also had a great variety of music and dancing with the staff was fun! It was my first time snorkeling so I was a little intimidated but the staff made us feel super comfortable. We saw beautiful fish, but nothing too exciting, as the water was a little choppy on our excursion.
Margaritaville MoBay was the last destination before boarding the boat back to the meeting point for the hotel.
Margaritaville is pretty pricey but nonetheless we had a blast.

This is a great trip and the catamaran was very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and provided snacks such as Jamaican Pattys along with the open bar. I didn't realise that the trip included a stop at Margaritaville which was a pleasant surprise and the water slide there is so fast but such fun. A lovely afternoon with some beautiful snorkeling.

With all of our trips, we always have to book a snorkeling excursion. This one proved to be another great experience, the catamaran was beautiful and there was plenty of room on it. The staff was great. There were drinks and snacks provided on the catamaran. Plentiful amount of beautiful fish at the reef with a variety of different depths in the water from a couple feet to 20 feet. After snorkeling, you head to Margaritaville where you have the option to eat, drink or use the ocean trampoline and obstacles. Wonderful excursion and would recommend to anybody.

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!
