What You Can Expect
Upon arriving at the Black River, board your boat for an exciting nature expedition along Jamaica's longest river. As you cruise the Black River, you’ll catch glimpses of real Jamaica, from native wildlife to the local fishermen in their dugout canoes fishing for river shrimp.
Next, you'll enjoy a delicious Jamaican lunch before continuing on to YS Falls. Considered the most beautiful spot in Jamaica, the falls are a relaxing, majestic sight. Swim and play in the cool, refreshing waters or just relax at the falls’ edge. At the end of the day, you'll be transported back to your hotel.
Did you ever shake hands with a crocodile? Our guide did. That's what I call getting up close and personal with nature. The river trip was educational. Lunch was simple and good. But the falls! Oh my, they are fabulous! If you love waterfalls, don't miss this trip. The falls are more beautiful than Dunn's River Falls. Our guide Desrine was delightful and informative -- always willing to answer questions.
This was great, a must to see.
I enjoyed it very must
Very low-key tour, but so pleasant and relaxing! It's simply a pontoon boat or something like that ride up and down the river. The day I went was gorgeous for it and it was a great way to get close up to crocodiles and the birds. The guides throw food in the water to entice the crocodiles into action for your photo frenzy pleasure, but if they have already been fed, they aren't going to do much... but that's not a reflection of this tour and a matter of timing. All in all, a great trip.
The bus tour provided us an excellent view of the real Jamaica.
The Black River cruise was very interesting with fantastic nature photo opportunities. The boat is a big pontoon boat... Sit in the front!
They focus a lot on the crocodiles, but there is so much more. The cruise takes
45 minutes followed by a lunch. The lunch was not a high point but edible.
Then an hour drive to get to the falls.
The entire YS Falls experience was a total pleasant surprise. You could spend an entire day at the falls alone with kids. In addition to the very picturesque falls, there are activities such as: rope swings, wading pond, 3 separate swimming pools-each a different temperature -all surrounding a bar, a restaurant and a gift shop.
There is also ample changing area.
Swimming shoes would be the best, but if this is not something you have, tennis
shoes would be the way to go.
Our tour guide was fun, but it would have been nicer to have history and culture
as a part of the long bus ride. Bring a couple hundred extra bucks for tips
(which they do not feel shy asking for) and drinks and or gift shop.
Would visit YS Falls again but would most likely make just a day trip of the

Great Tour! Well worth it!
Nice relaxing trip. Great Tour to see the countryside first hand. Lots to see. The water at the falls is great and the kids all had a great time.
Saw many crocodiles on the river trip. Lovely tour
