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

I thought the island was a little over rated. There just wasn't much beach to it or areas to explore. However, the fresh caught lobster cooked over the fire was delicious and worth every penny. Mine was $25

We took a glass bottom trip to snorkel, and our guide stopped at the island. We picked fresh lobster and fish and the guys cooked it for us. SO fresh!!! Also, it looked like a good area for snorkeling

Went by Bobby Cay Island after snorkelling. It is a beautiful island but swimming is not good from this location and there is garbage there from locals. Sometimes locals will do lobster lunches there but there was nobody there when we went. I think there are a lot of other places to see more worthy of your time. This island... More

We took a boat from 7 Mile Beach to Booby Cay, although we just snorkelled and didn't go onto the beach. Lots of fish and coral, although specimens were small. Regular hurricanes damage the reef. Points of interest include an underwater cannon and a large anchor. The water was lovely and warm, also very clear with no floating garbage about.... More

After a trip of snorkeling, we decided to check out Booby Cay for some lunch. Beautiful warm water, private beach area and see Homeboy Porter who will let you pick out your lobster or crab and grill it right up for you. My hubby had snapper and we had lobsters, they give it to you with some som sort of... More

Great weather, accommodated by a great dive captain! We went to a couple dive spots on our way to the caye, it's really close to mainland. Great wTercondiotions and a great lunch while on the island. A lady was selling a few articles of possible needed items while adventuring the island, etc. towels, hats, pareos.
