We were staying at Hedonism 2, got a little jitney to take us over (about 10 in our group). Once there, were able to pick out our lobsters that the locals killed and grilled for us. $20 for a lobster, dirty rice, and garlic bread. Plenty of tables to sit at and enjoy our lunch. Can't wait to go back.

Nice ride to the Island, nice people, great you picked out a fresh lobster, but the island itself needs a little cleaning, could use some garbage cans or something. Nice view from the island

We went as it was 'advertised' as a good place to see (and photograph) wild life especially the Booby bird. In fact it has been so overused as a picnicking venue, there is little wild life to be seen. The 'nature' walk is just a walk along a scrubby path. A number of feral cats inhabit the island which is... More

We went with Captain Raymond, He showed us a fantastic time. There are no buildings on this island, no bathrooms either. We had beers and snorkeled, A good time, but it wasn't my favorite thing to do with Captain Raymond.

got up in the morning and the gang was going on a boat trip of some sort. I decided to tag along. Captain Raymond loaded us up and the party started. He whipped up a jug of rum punch and passed it around in ice filled cups. The red stripe flowed freely and I was surprised to be so hammered... More

My husband and I rented "The Sun Baby" with Captain Roger and he made sure that everything was perfect. He picked us up from our resort (Samsara) and took us to the island for a lobster meal. Then he took us snorkeling and it was amazing! Later, we went by Rick's and into some caves and were able to see... More

You need to be on book to get there, but most boat stop and snorkel the to the small island, will fix lobster lunch, then back home. You pick out ur own lobster. Island is very raw, no bathrooms,lots of trash, but still nice

Was a great place to snorkel by and visit. National and his glass bottom boat took us out for the day and we had a great time. Seen many fish snorkeling and then some time on the island with some of the locals and tourists having a few red strips. I recommend this to any visitor to Negril,
