This offshore island is a popular spot for picnics, snorkeling, diving and swimming; most of the hotels in and around Negril frequently arrange trips here for their guests. The island, also affectionately known as Gilligan's Island, derives its name from the Booby birds; which use the island as their breeding ground. The islands snorkeling and scuba diving is truly spectacular, as the many coral reefs provide breeding ground for a dense population of colorful marine life. Part of the movie, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" was filmed here.
A couple of years ago i took a taxi in negrel jamaica and I saw a dog with a hole in his head and suffering and my taxi driver as well as the people on the street were laughing not caring about the dog at all the government and the people of this country should be ashamed of themselves for letting things like this happen, Shame on you Jamaica
Ive been going to Negril for thirty years, Ive been to Booby Cay many times inthe past. We were told a few years ago that the island was off limits, I thought that maybe Sandals or one of the other All-Inclusives had purchased it. I was told this year that they decided to get rid of the cat population in the area so now they place the animals on the island with no water or food and leave them to die. I was told this at the end of our trip. Next time Ill take a jet ski and bring a video camera to post on you tube.
Spent a couple of afternoons at Booby Cay with one of the locals who we met on the beach at our resort, Riu Negril. We traveled in his boat, about a ten minute ride. He caught and cooked lobsters for us while we snorkeled and just relaxed on the beach. If you are in Negril you must arrange to visit Booby.
I couldn't believe when I saw this small island listed on this site. I thought it was just something that the islander's were aware of and I was excited to go. This island which is a stones throw from the beach of Negril, closest to Hedonism II and Sandals. While staying at Sandals, one of the excursions during the day was to Booby Cay Island which you could see from our beach. The island was full of cats, and I mean everywhere! Everywhere you looked you saw a different cat, behind this tree and that tree, all over the place. It was like the island of Kitty's! We only stayed an hour or so, so it wasn't bad, actually it was quite fun and definitely worth seeing. Everyone was sitting on the sand watching the sun go down with cats on the island prowling in the background. You should check it out, no one could explain it to me, you just have to see it and at no charge it was well worth the money!
I lived in Jamaica for the summer, and when I had the day off work i often sailed to Booby Cay. It's a great place to go and get away. The west side of the island is covered in small seashells, so we gathered seashells often. Also, sometimes there are a couple of locals there that cook fresh caught lobster. You also get a beautiful view of Negril's coast.
