Overview

Cruise down the Black River and swim in the YS Falls on this full-day tour from Montego Bay. With your local guide, explore the mangrove swamps during a trip down the longest river in Jamaica; keep your eyes open for native crocodiles in their natural habitat. Feast on a traditional Jamaican lunch, then take a rejuvenating dip in the YS Falls. This tour includes round-trip transportation from your Montego Bay hotel.
  • Sightseeing cruise of the Black River and YS Falls from Montego Bay
  • Sail down Jamaica's longest river and watch as crocodiles soak up the Caribbean sun
  • Enjoy a refreshing swim in the stunning YS Falls
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off, English-speaking guide and a delicious lunch included
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.

This trip was amazing. Our guide Cheree and our driver Anthony were top notch. They pointed out things along the way and gave a great history over. The country is absolutely beautiful. The Black River Safari was nice, we saw plenty of crocodiles and the guide was very good. The included lunch was amazing, of course it was jerk chicken with rice and peas, but it was the best I had during my whole trip. YS Falls was beautiful. We had plenty of time to explore, swim and relax before heading back to the bus. I would definitely recommend this tour. Amazing

Very nice trip and a good opportunity to see also real Giamaican villages far away from the touristic location! Very well organized!

Although the road trip was a bit long it was well worth it. The bus had to navigate Montego Bay traffic jams both ways from our hotel Rose Hall Beaches and getting south for part of the journey was on a twisting, hilly road. The boat trip at Black River was very scenic and we saw crocodiles and many birds. Lunch there was tasty and served promptly. YS Falls was beautiful and dips in the pools were very refreshing. The trip was 'good bang for the buck'. Duncan, London, ON.

Incredible trip. Long ride made. So much fun with MaMa D, our guide whose combination of interesting facts with great humor had us there before we knew it. The Black River is a must for nature lovers with several up close encounters with crocodiles and many types of birds. The guide was really knowledgebable and courteous. The short ride to US falls led to an incredible view of the many tiered falls, complete with a Garden swing and several pools to bath in as well as two swimming pools. The ride home was so much fun with our guide and our driver, Norris keeping us amused and happy. This trip was worth the price.

This is a nice tour, but should be done if you were at a resort on the south side of the island. The bus ride is long and takes up the major part of your day. We did like the tour though. it was a nice cruise down the river and we saw many crocodiles and birds. The falls are fun to play in, if the day is hot. The water is colder than you would expect for Jamaica.

This was a great tour! The roads from Montego Bay across to Black River are a little windy and narrow, particularly on a bus. It provided a little more fun on the ride over. It was great to see the scenery and small villages of Jamaica as we crossed the mountains to Black River.
The ride along the Black River was fascinating! Our boat guide was very knowledgeable and provided insight to the crocodiles habits and habitat as well as the local fishing customs and other wildlife in the area.
YS falls is amazing and lots of fun. I haven't been to the Dunn's River falls so can't compare, but from info that I have read, this is much less commercial and not nearly as crowded. It made a great afternoon stop before the return trip across the hills.
