This cruise takes you six miles up the river, during which a running commentary is given by your captain or tour guide on both the ecology and history of the area.
Over 100 species of birds have been recorded in the Black River morass and many will be seen during your trip. The endangered American Crocodile inhabits the area and sightings are very frequent! Feel free to pet these crocodiles!
For nature lovers in particular, the wetland vegetation is of special interest with three species of mangrove, thatch palms, royal palms along with the dominating freshwater swamp forest. So don’t miss your chance to discover the wild landscape of Jamaica’s beautiful unspoilt interior.
