Take an unforgettable cruise through one of Jamaica’s most beautiful regions on this Black River and YS Falls sightseeing tour from Montego Bay. The longest river in Jamaica, the Black River is a great place to explore remote mangrove swamps and to catch a glimpse of native species like crocodiles living in their natural habitats. After your cruise down the river, enjoy a local Jamaican lunch before taking a refreshing swim in the YS Falls.
Your Black River cruise begins with a bus ride from Montego Bay along Jamaica's beautiful south coast, past quaint fishing villages and small towns. En route, your knowledgeable guide will highlight all the points of interest with humorous anecdotes and commentary.

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.

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
falls alone.
