What a fun day on the Black River. We learned about the history of the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the crocodiles and other wildlife. We saw so many crocodiles-they came right up to our boat. The tour operators must feed them after hours for them to approach our boat. The captain reached out and touched the crocodile-it is a wonder he still has his arm! We also saw many birds. The tour lasted about and hour. We took a taxi from our resort and combined this tour with YS Falls for a fun filled day. The boat look a bit rough and old but the actual tour and guide were excellent. Only downside was they did not accept credit cards and the entrance fee we were charged was more than the on line posting stated. We were charged 25 USD cash pp. Our taxi driver and the online posting both stated the fee was 20 pp and that credit cards were accepted. Guessing the person collecting our fee gave himself a nice tip!

We did the boat ride, took pictures with the mangrove and saw a couple of crocodiles. At the end, we were able to hold the young ones. This was part of a Nexus tour

Visited as part of a day excursion. The pilot of the boat was very informative and knew much about the local fauna and flora. We saw two crocodiles (Josephine at the half way point, whom the pilot stroked, and jaws at the end). Really enjoyable trip don the black river. Recommended.

We had a great cruise with 6 of us heading up the river to go looking for crocs. Took less than 2 minutes to find the first, and our captain did a great job showing us the sites and the wildlife.

Yeah the guide was great, the crocs yeah good to see, however they totally ripped us off! $42 each for 5 adults 2 kids I asked if kids were $42 as well... Yes.... Hmm well OK so I paid it as we'd driven nearly 2 hours to get here. Couple at hotel just told us they paid $25 each 😳😡🤬 Not worth $42
