The Tryall Club is pleased to announce the hiring of marine biologist TJ Jett as on-site Naturalist, in charge of directing the Club’s diverse array of nature and outdoor recreation programs for members, guests, and their families. Jett, an expert in the remarkably rich plant and animal life that calls the Tryrall Club’s 2,220 lush acres home, will lead guests on spectacular rainforest hikes, informative kayak trips, and thrilling coastal reef explorations.

“We’re delighted to have TJ aboard as the resort’s fulltime professional Naturalist,” says the Tryrall Club’s Managing Director, Gerry Giarla. “With TJ’s expert guidance, guests will be able to enjoy the Club’s many nature programs and explore the area’s incredible ecosystem in a way never before possible.”

For Jett, the Tryrall Club is a perfect setting for a naturalist who’s passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge about the area’s unique flora and fauna.

“There’s a huge diversity of plant and animal life right on the grounds of the Club, which is incredible to see,” says Jett. “The coral reefs on the shores of the Club are teeming with beautiful tropical fish and underwater plant life. Guests are going to be amazed at what they see.”

TJ Jett brings a lifelong love of the outdoors to the Tryrall Club. Growing up in the Low Country of South Carolina, Jett spent much of his youth exploring the diversity of wildlife in the region. He graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Marine Science and conducted ocean research in the Florida Keys and the Turks and Caicos Islands. He later became onsite Naturalist and Director for the Turks and Caicos Sporting Club, where he led educational workshops.

At the Tryrall Club, Jett will act as an expert pair of eyes and ears for guests, leading informative nature hikes around the grounds of the resort, exploring the lush rainforest habitat and the craggy limestone shoreline, uncovering the secrets of nearby coral reefs. He’ll also direct kayak trips and “wet walks” along the beaches and coastal bays of the Club, revealing a hidden world of exotic undersea life. A certified diving instructor, Jett will also lead skin diving classes and conduct and snorkeling expeditions for both adults and children.

“A lot of parents take their kids along to the nature walks and reef trips because they think it’ll be fun for them,” says Jett. “But then the adults get caught up in the excitement themselves, as they discover the incredible natural beauty of the area.”

The Tryall Club is the Caribbean’s premiere luxury resort, located on the lush northern coast of Jamaica, 12 miles west of Montego Bay. The Club features 84 sumptuous private villas, each uniquely designed and equipped with its own personal chef and private swimming pool. Set among 2,200 rolling acres that formerly housed a vast sugar cane plantation, the Tryall Club has been designated a National Heritage Foundation site. The Club is a favorite stop for successful business people as well as families and offers a relaxing and unforgettable tropical getaway. It’s also perfect for destination weddings, group meetings, and family reunions.

The Tryrall Club first opened as a private resort in 1957 with an 18-hole, 6221-yard golf course designed by Ralph Plummer. In recent years, a series of imaginatively designed villas and impressive showcase homes have been added, establishing the Club as one of the Caribbean’s truly elite villa vacation estates.
