Black River and YS Falls Sightseeing Cruise from Montego Bay
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.
What to Expect
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.

Great day at the falls. Black River boat had 2 groups on board which allowed little movement to take photos.

The bus ride is 2 hours and more. Beautiful scenery at the falls. The Black River the boat had 2 groups and made taking photos difficult. The trip felt a bit rushed. It also was at the end of the day. Would recommend it.
