BLACK RIVER SAFARI
Discover the beauty of the south with a 1 1/2 hour 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.
