Excellent tourist attraction. Crocodiles, numerous birds and of course the mangrove trees with their roots hanging from their branches to the water. Again used Jackies Taxi and Transportation. My third visit to Jamaica and have found Jackies Taxi, polite, knowledgable, save and inexpensive. A must for tourists visiting N. Jamaica.

Our party of four had booked a day trip with Kevin Coleman of Jammin’ Jamaica tours. Kevin picked us up promptly at 7:30 a.m. and we enjoyed our backcountry drive through rural Jamaica to the St. Elizabeth Parish. Our first stop was Black River. A beautiful setting on a stunning day. We actually managed to be the first boat out... More

The guy punting us down was fairly quiet not sure if he had his mind on the job at hand..he provided a safe journey and we enjoyed all the wildlife on the way.we. stopped... More

Avoid being packed in like a sardine on a tourist tour boat and hire a local fisherman to take you up river it causes less environmental impact.

If you like nature and crocodiles you will really like this tour. The tour guide was very helpful telling us about the black river and all the species of bird and animals living there.

We took a small boat from Treasure beach so we spent 1 hour travelling down the coast before entering the river. The trip along the coast is spectacular if calm and frightening if the sea is choppy so be warned. Once you enter the river everything is calm. There are plenty of crocs if you are quiet and look carefully.... More
