We also saw lots of interesting birds. The boat driver was friendly and gave lots of good information. He was cute too! We had a delicious lunch... More

This was part of my rum tour and I'm glad it went. We firstly had lunch there which was just ok. But the trip down the river was tranquil. Was fun seeing the crocodiles in their natural habitat and the gorgeous surrounding mountains. As with all trips it's annoying when the guide asks for a tip!

So black river is famous for its crocs, and this is a great way to see them. The tour is very tourist friendly as are the crocodiles, the boats are large and stable, and the remarkably chilled crocodiles generally swim over to the boat to see if there's any food, one even came and let the tour guide and one...

We had a very informative tour up black river and our tour guide Carnell was amazing! We saw at least 5 crocodiles along the way and saw a really big one on our return to land! And a further 2 more! The crocodile nursery was great too and we got to hold a baby croc!

We have organized the separate tour with small motor boat, eight people totally. From the level if the water, the nature of the river looks fantastic. Many birds, fishes, some crocodiles and terrific plants. And the majestic mangroves, creating the unbelievable forms and shapes. Easy to go there from Treasure Beach, by sea or by road.

Neat cruise, see wild (semi-tamed?) crocs, peaceful cruise down the river. Choose a boat with a canopy/biminy if it's a hot, sunny day

To get to this tour you first have to encounter winding roads which in some stretches you will encounter deep potholes and get ready to be tired at the end of the day especially if you combine it with the YS falls and Appleton rum factory which only makes sense. The tour itself you get on a boat with around... More
