Venture into a tropical forest and explore Jamaican landscapes with this trip to the Black River and YS Falls.

Black River & YS Falls Day Trip

We'll pick you up from your hotel or the Ocho Rios cruise port at 7:15 am and set off on our trip to the Black River. For just over two and a half hours we'll travel along the north coast of Jamaica admiring its beaches and green forests.

When we arrive we'll hop on a boat that will sail us down the Black River. It's 53 kilometres long and is one of the most important rivers in Jamaica. The fascinating plants and wildlife that populate its banks make it a real a tropical paradise. Did you know it is also home to the Jamaican crocodile? Will you spot one?

After the boat trip, we'll enjoy a hearty Jamaican lunch. Then we'll make our way to the spectacular YS Falls, a natural paradise. A series of seven cascades fall into a perfect lagoon where you can take a refreshing dip. You can also take a walk along the river path or sunbathe on its banks.

At the end of the day, we'll take you back to your hotel in Ocho Rios at 8 pm.
