WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY?
One of the best memories from our trip to Jamaica! Sunshine Watersport was fantastic! We booked a 4 night stay at Goldeneye resort in Jamaica and wanted to get off property at least one day. I had always wanted to see Laughing Waters Beach, which was made famous in the James Bond Dr. No movie … and through a Bond fan website, I received the recommendation to use Captain Tony to make it to this hard to access beach. If we had more time, I might have combined it with another trip, such as fishing. Next time, for sure! First of all, Tony is professional and personable. He is a local guide who knows all the ins and the outs of his business. He has a brand new spotless van and his boat is a really cool wooden motorboat painted red. The Jamaican people are fantastic, but the Ocho Rios area is not somewhere a tourist should wander about alone, if they are unfamiliar with the area … this is especially true during Covid times where many beaches, attractions and towns have curfews and rules. Tony knows all of these and you can leave the worrying and planning to him. We drove to the place where the boat is, which is quite a picturesque spot, and met his mate David, who was also friendly and knowledgeable. We hopped into the boat and off we sped through the crystal clear waters of Ocho Rios. Tony and David pointed out a lot of local landmarks, resorts and James Bond movie filming locations along the way, as they knew we were Bond fans. On the way back, they even passed by a fantastic waterfall which emptied into the ocean … something you don’t see every day. At some parts of the trip, there were reefs to navigate and it was clear how skilled Captain Tony was in knowing the exact path to navigate … my guess is, if you are on a fishing trip … this is the guy you want locating the best spots. We arrived at the beach and Tony explained the rules … one side is private and the other side is not. It’s very important not to cross over. They parked the boat and accompanied us on the shore and even took pictures for us in the falls! All of our friends were very jealous … Laughing Waters is the most beautiful beach we have ever seen and there is a waterfall which empties onto the sand. I would suggest going during the week, as Saturday and Sundays can get crowded and they sometimes shut it down if the crowds get too big. We went on a Sunday and there were maybe 20 other people on the beach. David and Tony kept an eye on us, just to make sure nobody messed with us or anything. This is not a beach you’d find lots of tourists on. We felt really safe and looked after. The boat ride was half of the fun of the trip … the beach was another fun part. After we returned, Tony stopped at a small local shop near the boat where we could buy a Red Stripe beer. Overall, this trip was one of the highlights of our Jamaican vacation and a memory that we will remember forever. Tony took care of all the details … it was easy to reserve a time and make payment … Tony and David were a lot of fun and very friendly and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t use any other tour company the next time I am in Jamaica. They even do airport pick up/drop off … which, had I know that in advance, I’d have saved a TON of money vs. what the resort charges! We are huge fans of Sunshine Watersports. Thanks for the great trip!
10/10 would recommend I booked this trip while visiting my husband in Jamaica, I had never went snorkeling and neither had he. When we saw the price we thought it would be just ok but we had a blast. The people were easy to contact and the boat guys were super helpful. I will probably book again on a future trip!!
Captain Tony Great time with Tony, we went fishing and also to the beach where Dr No was filmed in 1962. Highly recommend, reliable and on time
Fishing and snorkeling in Ocho Rios Captain Tony was awesome! True Jamaican experience in Ocho Rios waters with great company. Us and the kids were exhausted from the flight the night before but Captain Tony made it fun. We didn’t initially catch anything so we went snorkeling and he kindly took us for another round on the way back. My son ended up catching a small tuna but it made the morning fulfilled with the fishing and catching one. He even took the tuna, cleaned it, and cooked it for us. It was delicious!
What a great Jamaican experience! Captain Tony is a very kind man. He was great with communication via email before our trip. He picked us up at the hotel and brought us to the little fishing village in Ocho Rios where our day began. Our boat guides were Dave & Bruce— they were very polite & told us a lot of information about fishing & Jamaican culture. It was a beautiful day, we started out at 6:30 and fished for 4 hours. Unfortunately we only caught 2 fish— a barracuda (which we can not eat) and a tuna— which we had Bruce cut up for us to bring back to the hotel. I would highly recommend sunshine water sports to anyone looking for an authentic Jamaican experience. Also, you can hire Tony to take you anywhere— Duns River Falls, Blue Hole, etc. He is friendly & trustworthy! Thank you tony & Crew! Our catch was delicious & we were happy to share the dish with friends & some of the resort staff. Don’t forget to tip!!! That is how these kind people earn their living!
Fish weren’t biting but great fun anyway We booked two tours with Captain Tony for our family of five – Blue Hole/Dunn’s River and fishing/snorkeling. It was nice to have personalized attention and just our family on the tour at a reasonable price (ie no booze cruise). Fishing from Tony’s boat was beautiful even not catching anything that particular day. Thanks Captain Tony!
Unreal Experience Best trip that never happened! Due to high seas we tried twice but were unable to fish. The Capt. valued my families safety more than the almighty dollar. He never charged us and when we return will definitely be going for another attempt with Sunshine Watersports! Very curteous and upstanding organization, highly recommended!
amazing guy incredible trip to sunshine valley plantation and blue hole. tony was great. two days later i went fishing with him and caught two barracuda.
Great Fishing Trip with Captain Tony! We were planning to be on vacation over Father’s Day so I booked a fishing trip for 4 on Father’s Day. Tony was easy to communicate with when booking the trip. He came to our hotel to pick us up and dropped us off right where we started our fishing trip. I was worried about the boats being small and not like the other big fishing boats I was seeing online. But we all enjoyed being so close to the action! We caught 4 fish (Tuna) and my husband had a great time! Be prepared for the quiet gaps in between not catching fish. I wouldn’t bring little kids because they would be bored. But for teens and adults who can enjoy being out on the water I would definitely recommend the fishing trip!
