Montego Bay Marine Park: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica

Montego Bay Marine Park

The Montego Bay Marine Park is the entire Montego Bay. It comprises 15.3 square kilometres, beginning at the high–tide mark on land, and extending to the 100 metre depth at sea. The eastern boundary is Tropical Beach, adjacent to Sangster International Airport, and the western boundary is Rum Bottle Bay, a little point close to the Great River. It is a very diverse environment, including mangrove forests and islands, white sand beaches, river estuaries, seagrass beds and corals, not to forget all the animals and people that call this place home.

The Montego Bay Marine Park does a number of things. These are scientific monitoring, community outreach, and interpretive enforcement. The scientific aspects include fish and coral assessments, beach erosion monitoring, water quality testing, and rescuing injured marine animals. Community outreach involves all presentations we give to schools and public gatherings in order to educate people about their marine environment and environmental responsibility. Interpretive enforcement means facilitating compliance through offender education and enforcement as needed, so that all users can live in a sustainable way.

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 kilometres 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 centre, 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.
