The Story of Bloody Bay, Negril

Bloody Bay, Negril is home to one of the most coveted beaches on the island of Jamaica, given its tall palm trees, pristine white sand and turquoise ocean. Given its coral reefs, this bay is also an excellent place for snorkelling.  

This area is also known for its history as a whaling port and fisherman’s village, which serves as a basis for its ominous name. Today, whaling is no longer practised in Jamaica, but fishing is still a common activity for many locals around the town of Negril.

Easily the most intriguing story behind this Bay relates to the capturing of John Rackham, popularly known as “Calico Jack.” Calico Jack was famous for commandeering both small vessels and large ships in the bays off the coast of islands in the Caribbean. In 1720, he was declared a pirate by government officials in Jamaica and a warrant was issued for his arrest. 

Jonathan Barnet, a pirate hunter, found out about the warrant, and began to pursue Calico Jack who was busy sailing the coast of Jamaica, antagonizing fishermen and overtaking small fishing boats. On Calico Jack’s marauding voyage, he discovered a small vessel on the bay belonging to a crew of English pirates. Having found his kin, all the merry pirates settled down for an afternoon of drinking on Jack’s ship.  A savvy Barnet found Calico Jack’s ship anchored on the shores of Bloody Bay and launched an attack. Unfortunately, the crew members enjoyed the rum so much that they were too inebriated to put up any reasonable resistance against Barnet.  Calico Jack, his lover Anne Bonny and the whole crew were captured by Barnet and his men.  All found aboard Jack's ship were convicted of piracy and met their fate by execution in Port Royal.
