Full description
Enjoy a 6-hour tour by comfortable motorboat up Jamaica's longest navigable river, through Jamaica's largest wetland area, known as the Black River lower morass. You’ll be picked up at your hotel or your cruise ship pier and transferred to the boat. Learn about the area’s ecology and history from the experienced captain/guide. See many of the more than 100 bird species that have been recorded in the morass. Meet a few of the friendly crocodiles as your boat captain calls them by name. They’ll swim up to your boat and you pet them and feed them. Take in the wetlands vegetation, including different species of mangrove, palm and other plants that grow along the banks of the river. Enjoy a ride through Lovers Lane, created by the roots of the mangroves. At the end of your boat ride, you’ll return to your hotel or cruise ship.
