You can fish off the docks or rent a kayak where you will discover some manatees, dolphins and other marine wildlife during your fruitful expedition.
JB's Fish Camp also has an extensive menu offering fried baskets, appetizers, salads, A la carte seafood and shellfish, blackened specials and more.
According to a Trip Advisor review, "My favorite is the broiled flounder and they did a great job in preparing it. Corn was super fresh and tasty, not water logged as most places are. Drink selection at [the] bar is very good and the atmosphere and ambiance is super."
This riverfront restaurant is the perfect day trip to enjoy a cultural experience next to the river and embrace the island lifestyle like a true Caribbean.
