The Black River Safari Tour is an Eco-tourism tour situated on the south coast of the island. This tour offers a boat ride on the longest navigable river in the parish of St. Elizabeth which boasts the first town to have received electricity in Jamaica.
What to Expect
One could easily say this is the only river where you find friendly crocodiles! Enjoy the tour in a comfortable motorboat up Jamaica's longest navigable river through Jamaica's largest wetland area, the Black River lower morass. You will be picked up from your hotel or from your cruise ship and taken to the boat.
Enjoy the ecology and history told by an experience and well trained captain/guide. See many of the over 100 birds recorded in the morass, meet and greet a few of the "friendly" crocodiles as your boat captain call them by names, have them swim up to your boat, pet them and feed them. See the wet lands vegetation, different species of mangrove, palms and other plants along the bank of the river. Enjoy the ride through lovers lane, created by the roots of the mangroves. At the end of your boat ride, you will be taken back to your hotel or cruise ship.
