Full description
Enjoy an educational boat ride along the pristine wilderness of the Black River in Jamaica and keep your eyes open for the many wild animal sightings that can occur.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in Negril or Montego Bay, sit back and relax on the 1.5-hour to 2-hour journey to the Black River region. Upon arrival, you will climb aboard a small river boat to learn the river's history and look for abundant bird and wildlife. Watch in awe as your captain hand feeds the resident alligators.

To make your off-the-beaten-path tour even more special, upgrade to include a 20-minute boat ride out to the Pelican Bar, a secluded tiki hut and seafood restaurant. Located 3 miles out to sea, the hut offers a unique position to go swimming in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, and take advantage of the day's fresh seafood catch.
