Black River and YS Falls Sightseeing Cruise from Montego Bay

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After pickup from your hotel in Montego Bay, board a bus for a ride down the island's scenic south coast. Watch out the windows as your bus passes small towns and charming fishing villages. Your guide will offer commentary about the region and its points of interest. 

    Arrive at the Black River, the island's longest river, and step aboard your boat. Cruise down the winding waterway through scenes of the 'real' Jamaica, far from the hubs of tourist activity. Pass local fisherman trolling for river shrimp in their dugout canoes and watch for native wildlife like crocodiles in the mangrove swamps.

    After the cruise has concluded, climb ashore for a traditional Jamaican lunch. 

    When you've had your fill of delicious local food, continue to YS Falls, considered one of the most gorgeous spots on the island. Relax at the edge of the falls or dive in for a rejuvenating swim under the falling water. 

    At the conclusion of your 9-hour adventure in the region, board your bus for transportation back to your Montego Bay hotel.

    We had booked through TripAdvisor and confirmed dates with JTL, but no one arrived to pick us up at 8.15 as advertised. We called them from the hotel and they said that the tour wasn't running that day and the next available date was the Saturday - the day that we were leaving

    We cruised down the river, saw more than 10 alligators and watched various birds feeding in the river. The cruise boat captain was very knowledgeable and fun to boot. We saw many nesting birds. Memorable adventure and overall pleasant outing.
