Dirty, garbage all over the place. People sleeping there. No toilets, no where to sit or swim. Makeshift benches that were falling apart. Just dirty dirty dirty

The reef here is so big that you can snorkel for a couple of days in different places. The locals have beach parties on the island but there isn't anything on the island itself.

We went out for a day on the boat with Rasta Mikey and sons from Yellowbird, which included a lobster lunch on the island. It was a fabulous time. Beautiful beach, lots of pretty places to take pictures & the lobster was delicious too! :)

Marcus took us to Booby for a lobster lunch. A couple of boats arrived before us so the grill was full. Kevin and his crew prepared a fine meal. An authentic Jamaican experience if you are in Negril

Everyone should visit Booby Cay Island when in Negril. If you book a snorkel trip to the reef most boats will bring you to the island for a cookout of chicken or lobster. Great time.

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...More

Yes it is. Privately owned condos. But they rent them out.

Just wondering what you paid for the boat/snorkeling trip to Booby Cay so I have an idea of what to expect. Thanks!

We were quoted $60.00 at the Rockhouse but we were charged $70.00, so confirm the price before getting on the boat. I could have argued, but $10.00 doesn't break me. I felt sorry for the guys and gave them the extra $10.00... More
