This trip was very relaxing despite the fact we saw a number of crocodiles and many different types of bird. The guide was very informative, clearly knew his stuff and additionally was able to coax crocs to the side of the boat to show us their teeth. What a beautiful part if the country that I didn't expect.

I had friends take us to the river to swim. This was fresh mountain water that was cool and refreshing. Families were there swimming and cooking out. There was a rope swing a bridge that you could jump from. This was a nice quiet remote area. The scenery was beautiful. A little difficult to travel to. The roads were narrow.... More

I enjoyed riding down the river taking in the sights, learning about the river and seeing all the wildlife including the crocodiles. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny.

We enjoyed this trip along the river to see the crocodiles. They feed the crocodiles and they come to the boat when they call them.

This trip is a great chance to see Jamaican crocodiles up close and personal. On the 45 min or so trip on the river, we saw up close 6 or more big crocs - the guide fed them from the boat, so they came right up alongside. The guides also pointed other natural interests such as the mangroves and local... More
