Sail across the Caribbeans sun-dappled waters aboard a luxury catamaran from Montego Bay, and reach a snorkelers paradise at a nearby marine park. Discover beautiful coral, hold sea urchins and marvel at the schools of colorful fish swimming around you, attracted by the food provided by your boat crew. Make a stop at Jimmy Buffett-founded Margaritaville and then back aboard your catamaran, mosey over to the domestic open bar and groove to reggae music. This 3-hour morning tour includes round-trip hotel transport.
Your morning of sun, fun and snorkeling in the sparkling Caribbean begins with hotel pickup in Montego Bay. Head to the port and climb aboard a 53-foot (16-meter) or 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran, where youll meet the crew and learn of the amenities on board. The sails unfurl, catchy reggae music begins and youre off.
Arrive at Montego Bay Marine Park, 5.2 acres (2 hectares) of protected reef, stretching west from Tropical Beach to Rum Bottle Bay. After a safety briefing, slip on a life vest and snorkeling gear and hop in the water. Along the reef, discover a variety of coral and swim amid swirls of fish, which your boat crew attracts with food. Beginner snorkelers and non-swimmers receive individualized attention from a member of the crew in the water. A photographer from the boat will take pictures of your snorkeling, which will be available for purchase.
After snorkeling, which lasts about 45 minutes, your captain navigates the boat to Margaritaville founded by Jimmy Buffett, if the weather cooperates. En route, enjoy an assortment of drinks from the domestic open bar on board, offering rum and vodka cocktails, rum punch, Red Stripe beer on tap, fruit punch and soft drinks. Disembark at the entertainment complex of Margaritaville, where you can splash about the water slide and trampoline, purchase snacks or go on a brief stint of shopping.
Back aboard the catamaran, soak up views of white sand beaches, seaside bluffs and lush hills as the boat hugs the coastline. Dial up the festive mood with pulsing Caribbean beats and a flowing supply of rum punch from the bar. Bop your head to the music or swing your hips during a dance lesson from the crew.
Return to the port in Montego Bay, from where youll be transported back to your hotel.
