Everything you need to know about lobster season in the Caribbean and the best times to visit!

Ah, Caribbean honeymoons – relaxing by the pool, sipping on Bahama Mamas, and feasting on all the fresh seafood you can get your hands on. But wait – Did you know lobster is not always in season in the islands? Caribbean islands often have mandated seasons on certain seafood to protect them from over-harvesting, including lobster. If surf-n-turf is the entree on your wedding menu dreams or that lobster candlelight dinner on the beach is non-negotiable, you may want to plan your wedding or honeymoon around the Caribbean lobster season.
