Enjoy a ride up the Black River, seeking out the native crocodiles. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the wildlife and flora. This is an attraction that you will never forget.
Discover the beauty of the South Coast with a boat tour by motor launch up Jamaica’s largest navigable river and through what is Jamaica’s largest wetland area, the Black River lower morass. Our basic tour takes you six miles up the river and return, during which a running commentary is given by your captain/ tour guide on both the ecology and a little history of the area. Over 100 species of birds have been recorded in the Black River morass and many are seen during your trip.
The endangered American Crocodile (c.actus) inhabits the area and sightings are very very frequent. The wetland vegetation is of special interest with three species of mangrove, Thatch palms, Royal palms, and freshwater swamp forest dominating. A not-to-be-forgotten experience.
For a spectacle of pure natural beauty, it’s difficult to beat YS falls in St. Elizabeth Parish.
Unlike many waterfalls in Jamaica, YS Falls is tucked away in a secluded rural location and receives relatively few visitors, allowing you to relax and enjoy the surroundings, away from the hubbub of the crowds. The YS Estate is located deep in the sugar-growing region of St. Elizabeth Parish. Once you arrive at the estate a tractor-pulled jitney will take you to the waterfalls.
The YS Falls is 120 feet tall and cascade over seven levels. Steps have been built up the side of the falls so visitors can view the falls without getting wet. If you’d prefer a more interactive experience there are natural pools at the bottom of each level of the falls, lifeguards on the site will let you know which pools are safe to swim in. One pool features a rope swing where you can swing “Tarzan-style” into the water below. For a more relaxing swim, there is also a 4-foot deep pool at the bottom of the falls which is fed by natural springs.
