[Shared] Y.S. Falls and Black River Safari Tour
The combination of Black River Safari and the YS Falls day trip will leave you breathless! They are the two most astonishing nature lover spots anywhere on the Island that will make a lasting impression on your visit to Jamaica.
YS FALLS: Meet your guide in the main lobby of your hotel and get ready for an amazing day to the south coast of Jamaica. Your driver will take you through the mountains in a private vehicle passing by small farming villages that appear one after another. Your guide will tell you about the areas you pass through and teach you about the rich Jamaican history. The drive to the south coast is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.
The first stop will be at YS Falls where a jitney, hauled by a tractor, will be waiting to take you on a 10-minute ride through the woods and up to the falls until you have reached the gift shop. You will have approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to explore the falls and surrounding rain-forest. There are 2 man-made natural pools available to you. Guides and lifeguards are on property to provide guests with both safety and assistance. YS is a nature-based attraction offering the opportunity to experience the beauty of the waterfalls surrounded by lush gardens and magnificent trees. The pools are fed by underground and above ground springs, which is more suitable for children and others unable to swim. YS Falls offers one of the most exhilarating canopy rides, which glide from the top of the falls to its base, and river tubing (Canopy and tubing are extra cost). Diving off the platforms and swing off the Tarzan Ropes are also a trademark activity at YS.
BLACK RIVER SAFARI TOUR: What a memorable day it has been so far! Now you are at the Riverside Dock where you will have lunch. After lunch, you will meet with your Safari Tour Guide who is very knowledgeable & well prepared – eager to take you on a wild journey up the Black River. There you will get all the information on the Black River and its wildlife, including endemic bird species, crabs, rare or endemic plants such as water lilies and others – North American crocodiles and Tarpons also occupy their space in the Black River. Get your cameras ready as your Safari Captain call the crocodiles, feed them chicken meat and pet them – no, your tour guide is not crazy but they have an excellent relationship with their friends from the Safari and are ready to share their experience and expertise with you! You might even see local fishers snorkeling the river collecting their crab traps or spear fishing right there among the crocodiles and other wildlife – and no, they’re not crazy! It’s just a way of life!
