This was such an amazing experience! The guys on the island literally catch the lobster and crabs that morning and cook on the island for you. Its kind of like a Beach/CastAway Feel. You should hire Captain Roger to take you snorkeling at the Reef and then the island for a late lunch!

This attraction is done by hiring one of the many boats on seven mile beach to take you. Choose Captain Moses if possible. He is located near the Grand Pineapple resort. For a reasonable fee you will get to do some snorkeling on the reef,and then go to the island for a very fresh lobster lunch. Captain Moses always has... More

have been to this island so many times already, it's nice to see and get food which will be freshly cooked (if you have great guides who went with you)

It's definitely worth to bargain a boat ride to this lovely island. Here you will bargain again (never forget to) for the freshest lobster i've ever had. After that you can either suntan in the beach or relax in the shadow (trees or rough picnic areas) I paid 15$/personfor the ride and 20$/pc for the lobster ( but you May... More

My condo I rented was straight across from this island . I am a swimmer so every day I swam to it . Most people get there on a boat package or just pay a guy on the beach to get a ride there . On most days there is a guy who will take a live lobster and cook... More

We had so much fun enjoying the lobster and the company on Booby Cay Island our first day and got the opportunity to come back and have Chef Zero (the chef of the island) cook our own catch for us later in our trip. It's a must see if you're in Negril!

Had the pleasure of going with my family on a day trip with captain Moses crew. Love love them! The island is nice and relaxing, but very small. Great for a picnic and snorkelling. The man on the island was a little grumpy and yelled at the kids for touching things and taking photos but we weren't going to let... More

Several glass bottom boats and watermen will take you over, with some featuring on beach cookouts. You can also snorkel and/or swim from the Point or nearby hotel beaches. On average 5-6 boats any given afternoon, so expect company in high-traffic season. Also good place behind island to watch sunset. If you have a mellow type sail or cruise in... More

Our glass bottom boat took us to Booby Cay where we had crab and lobster. My lobster was just okay, but my mom and sister ordered the crab and it was DELICIOUS!! There are a lot of cats on the island, so if you are not a fan of felines, this may not be the place for you. There isn't... More
