We are going to Jamaica next week.  We are spending 4 days at Runaway Bay, 4
days at Montego Bay.  Since our time is limited, any suggestions as to dive
sites in these areas would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

    I dont think you're going to get many responses. There really isnt much
good diving in the parts of Jamacia I've stayed in (Montego Bay, Ocho Rios).
The reefs used to be decent but the locals have overfished it to the point
where there wasnt anything over an inch long on the reef. Now its my
understanding that the reefs arent even that nice anymore.
    I've heard that some parts of Negril are ok, but take that with a grain of
salt as I've never personally been diving there (except off the cliffs). Its
strictly second hand info.
