Discover Jamaica's South Coast

Discover Jamaica's tropical paradise on the South Coast while we journey off the beaten path to an area that is relatively untouched in Jamaica. Take a journey down Jamaica's longest river, the Black River or swim in the refreshing waters of the YS. This tour begins with pickup from your resort, where we travel by air conditioned bus 2 hours to the YS falls.

On reaching the YS Falls, you will be taken by tractor through the lush mountains and valleys passing thoroughbred race horses that are bred at the YS property. YS Falls boast a 7-tiered cascading waterfall, an expansive wading pool fed by underground springs and exciting canopy rides. You can climb the falls, swim in the river or just relax in the natural whirl pools at the foot of the falls.

Following the YS falls, we take a trip to over to the Black River. The Black River Tour takes you by boat about six miles up Jamaica's largest navigable river and wetland area where you will see the native crocodiles along the way and over 100 species of birds

A Recent Review of this tour

Byron is an awesome excellent guide. We highly recommend booking him for a tour. It was quite evident that Byron is a safe excellent driver as he navigated through the winding mountain roads to the Black River and then Negril. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his job and his country. We spent the entire day together and Byron made it very memorable. We were so impressed with Byron that we called him to take us to Montego Bay later that week and again received the best experience.
