Six of us went on this excursion with Captain Billy and Riley and had a great time. Stopped to snorkel on the reef and then to the island for lobster and chicken grilled over wood fires. Met a lot of great people from all over the world. Had a blast.

The views at Booby Cay are gorgeous, but make sure that you book a trip that includes a lobster lunch, as once you've walked a portion of the island there isn't much to do out there. We had fresh grilled lobster over an open fire that our captain cooked for us. It was wonderful, some of the best I've had.... More

Very fun boat ride out to Booby Cay Island with Scooby and Popsi, from the craft sale hut that sits just outside the fence next to Merrill' II. They picked us up on time, took us out snorkeling (Pospi jumped in with us and pointed out interesting things we may have missed). We then headed to the island and Scooby... More

The snorkeling was better than average. The lobster lunch was adequate. A small lobster was about five bites. Spring for the twenty buck one. Honestly, I'd go out to the reef a bit away from the rush of the island. It was pleasant, but not a huge value.

Glass bottom boats like to take groups here and cook lobster or chicken. This small island is visited by multiple boat loads a day. Might be ok if there was somewhere to sit besides broken picnic tables. Also, mound of garbage left by the boat groups. If you go take water shoes as it is very rocky in water

This was a lot of fun and very cool how the lobsters are caught by the locals and grilled up right there for you.

I love hopping a boat ride to the island for lobster or even just to walk around a bit away from all the crowds. But who am I kidding? I always get the lobster when I'm there. :) Tip: negotiate on the price they quote you.

We go to booby cay with Captain Jack every year. We always enjoy that little island.it's even more special for us now as my boyfriend decided to pop the question there last March :)They have fresh lobster and conch that they cook over a wood fire. It is a pretty unique and romantic experience.

This was such an amazing experience! The guys on the island literally catch the lobster and crabs that morning and cook on the island for you. Its kind of like a Beach/CastAway Feel. You should hire Captain Roger to take you snorkeling at the Reef and then the island for a late lunch!
