We had a very informative tour up black river and our tour guide Carnell was amazing! We saw at least 5 crocodiles along the way and saw a really big one on our return to land! And a further 2 more! The crocodile nursery was great too and we got to hold a baby croc!

We have organized the separate tour with small motor boat, eight people totally. From the level if the water, the nature of the river looks fantastic. Many birds, fishes, some crocodiles and terrific plants. And the majestic mangroves, creating the unbelievable forms and shapes. Easy to go there from Treasure Beach, by sea or by road.

Neat cruise, see wild (semi-tamed?) crocs, peaceful cruise down the river. Choose a boat with a canopy/biminy if it's a hot, sunny day

To get to this tour you first have to encounter winding roads which in some stretches you will encounter deep potholes and get ready to be tired at the end of the day especially if you combine it with the YS falls and Appleton rum factory which only makes sense. The tour itself you get on a boat with around... More

Arranged this through a taxi driver who was able to negotiate a reasonable rate even though trip to Black River from Negril was several hours. We were so lucky as it was only our small group and one other on boat so able to chat to man who was driving boat. Saw wonderful vegetation, huge amounts of birds and quite... More

We saw 5 crocs along our travels. The biggest was a 14" croc. He was able to entice her to the side of the... More

This was one of the most educational leisure tours we have ever done. Our guide was very knowledgably about the source and basin of the Black River. He stopped several times to point out interesting facts about the river, the vegetation, and aquatic life. The Safari is great for nature lovers and those who have a deeper appreciation for the...
