This is an hour tour to do with YS Falls (close-by), makes a nice day. The wild crocodiles follow the boat around waiting for a treat. You will get to see them! Little soft shell crab shack near the end of the river tour - you can snack or go for a swim if you dont mind the crocodiles!

For a min I thought I was in a movie Lovely atmosphere, crocodiles were everywhere, the guide was truly knowledgeable and he showed us how to feed crocs. After the boat ride I visited the nursery where u can see baby crocs interacting with turtles .

Had a fantastic few hours going up the Black River Croc spotting. Started with "small" 6 footers then were treated to a giant 14 foot monster who attempted to grab a 6 footer ! Great guide on boat and incredible scenery. Loved every second of this trip.

A 2+ hour drive takes you over the western spine of the island, past small towns and villages clinging to the steep mountain slopes, down into the lowlands and along the southern coast towards Black River. There we boarded a 20 ft pontoon for our 6 mile cruise up the river estuary. Within minutes of leaving the dock several crocodiles... More

We booked with JTL (thank you to tour guide Adrian and driver Mr Martin). The boat ride was a good hour going up and down the Black River. We saw plenty of crocodiles and were really pleased that they were left alone. The guide explained that they no longer feed them for the tourists as they would be reliant on... More

This was a really enlightening and fun cruise. There were crocodiles of all sizes and the views were stunning. Our guide was very knowledgeable and more than willing to share information.

We enjoyed a relaxing boat trip booked with our hotel as a package with YS Falls. The guide was nice and shared his knowledge about the crocodiles and nature conservation, and we met Margaret the sexy crocodile lady and the handsome Terrorist boy which were laying under the sun on the pier. All the congratulations for this people for the... More

We weren't expecting much from this tour but were very pleasantly surprised. Less than a minute in before we saw a baby crocodile followed about a minute after by an absolute beast on the land alongside the river. The crocodiles kept coming we saw probably around 7 or 8 coming right up alongside the boat. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable... More
