What a great excursion! The driver was right on time and very friendly. We turned out to be the only ones that day so unexpectedly got a private tour. The driver told us about the cities, local customs and nature along the way. Once we arrived at the black river, we turned out to have a private boat here too. The trip over the river is beautiful! You will get nice/instructive information and you will (almost certainly) spot crocodiles. Then we continued to the YS waterfalls. Lunch was also here. The lunch is good with quite a few choices (jerk chicken, hamburger, fish, etc.). The YS waterfalls are very beautiful and fun to visit. Together with a guide you will go to the different parts to swim and take pictures. After this you can still use the pools near the waterfalls which is very nice.

The driver or tour guide was very friendly, thanks to Rolando. We had a nice day, the drive from Negril about 2 hours to the YS Falls. A beautiful experience and a particularly beautiful park. Can only recommend it to everyone. We had agreed a good 3 hours with the guide, including lunch. Then we continued for about 20 minutes in the direction of the Black River, the Safri in a picturesque natural paradise and crocodiles can also be admired. We had a nice day.

It was great, such an unique experience and we learn a lot too. The guides and captain were funny, knowledgeable and very helpful. Even if you can't swim, there're lifeguard vest on board that you can wear so you won't miss this one in a lifetime swim. The water is warm, so don't be afraid to go in the water. You should bring a towel, water shoes and your good mood!

We had an exciting time from start to finish. We loved the energy of the staff, wonderful music, snacks, drinks, and the stop at Margaritaville. I would highly recommend.

Driver was fantastic! Tours were fun and exciting. My only issue is that it could have been a little longer.
