Montego Bay Marine Park
This park is an educational adventure about the ocean and its inhabitants. This is Jamaica's first national park, and the very idea of it being completely underwater makes it a fascinating excursion for all age groups. Dozens of tropical fish, their environs and amazing coral reefs are protected under national law. Programs and tours are available to learn about the species that live within the 15 square kilometers of the park. The resource center and the park's headquarters are located at Pier One Marina in Montego Bay. Here you'll find a research center, reference material, slide shows and books about this ecological oasis. A help desk is also on premises, offering more information about tours. Head to the waterfront to find glass bottomed boat tours. Much of the park comprises mangroves, a valuable ecosystem that can be explored by kayak. Charter boats are also available to take you out to the fish feeding grounds and coral reef areas.
