Best excursion ever. EVER! A short cab ride from the Montego Bay cruise terminal, a brief lesson on a private beach then paddling away! It was wonderful! Right next to Doctors Cave so there's plenty of people watching, but your beach is private so is completely serene as well. Instructor was very patient and explained everything quit well - we were up and paddling in just minutes! We would paddle for a bit, then just sit in the water and relax, then paddle a bit more..perfection!
Amazing! The rays were everywhere! Our guide let us feed them toward the end of the tour and provided snorkel masks for the swim. I would bring my own snorkel supplies next time since the boat didn't have enough for everybody. I was fortunate, I was travelling with a group and the first person off the boat grabbed a mask and snorkel so we shared! Spotted a barracuda while swimming, bonus! Would love to take my kids to this!
Ruins were very nice, the guide was informative and quite funny. Wish they would give a bit more time to explore the ruins on our own - felt a bit rushed. The guide also suggested we pick up souvenirs at the gift shops there on the ruins site, that the prices were better but they absolutely were not. Prices were at least double or more at the ruins compared to the shops at the port. Little disappointed that the guide helped us walk right into that tourist trap.
