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.
WOULD DO THIS TOUR AGAIN! BRING TIP MONEY - THEY DESERVE IT! :

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.

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.

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.

Pleasant, relaxing trip round the bay and the snorkelling was everything we'd hoped for - plenty of interesting, colourful fish and fascinating coral. Not sure the stop at Margaritaville added much but we found a quiet spot to sit and talk about what we'd seen while snorkelling.

Only 2 organisational points. On the bus to the boat we were presented with a very comprehensive legal waiver which looked to negate all our legal rights in the event of an accident during the trip - we took a chance and signed on the basis it was too late to turn back and a gamble that the waiver was so OTT that it would not stand up in court. The other was that it was very difficult to get hold of the local agent to confirm our pick-up in spite of repeated calls and when we did, they told us they'd confirmed the details to aviator and expected Viator to tell us.

We really enjoyed the trip but it would be even more relaxing if these organisational issues could be addressed.

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.

Will not use viator again for excursions. Went to Jamaica in May and booked dolphin cove excursion and thought we were receiving the package that allowed us to swim with the dolphins. Come to find out, the information provided was wrong and we did not swim with the dolphins. Next, we were in Jamaica again on 10/16/17 - 10/20/17 and viator never called the catamaran excursion company or sent them information to confirm us. We never received a confirmation email either. Good thing we decided to call and confirm on our own. We will definately use another company in the future.

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.

No one came to pick us up. Almost no response over email. 150 down the drain! Go with another company.
