Black River
What a memorable day it has been so far! Now you are at the Riverside Dock. After lunch, you will meet your Safari Tour Guide, hop into a safari boat and float along the Black River. Along the way, watch for crocodiles, eagles, and more wildlife in their natural environment. Black River and its wildlife, including endemic bird species, crabs, rare or endemic plants such as water lilies and others - North American crocodiles and Tarpons also occupy their space in the Black River. Get your cameras ready as your Safari Captain call the crocodiles, feed them chicken meat and pet them - no, your tour guide is not crazy but they have an excellent relationship with their friends from the Safari and are ready to share their experience and expertise with you! You might even see local fishers snorkeling the river collecting their crab traps or spear fishing right there among the crocodiles and other wildlife - and no, they're not crazy! It's just a way of life!

YS FALLS is a beauty. Pics dontbdo it justice. Our driver Julian gave us great Jamaica facts and tid bits. The only negative was the price was a little steep since entry fees were not covered
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Dear Customer, Thanks for booking with us! We also think and agree with you that the YS Falls is a lot more beautiful than the pictures depicts! We are happy that you had a marvelous time there and with our tour guide. You booked the "Private" option which means that you would travel with just your party for a more personalized service and have much more flexibilities to move around at your own pace within the time allotted therefore, we try not to restrict you by adding the entry fees nor tell you how to spend your time - as opposed to the "Shared" option where you travel with a small group of visitors from other resorts and there is an itinerary that must be followed. We thanks you for taking the time out to share your experiences and we look forward to seeing you when next you travel! Kind regards, Natalia McFarlane Manager
