The Black River Safari was our first stop, and it was a boat ride along the black river. We saw three American Alligators (I think they were alligators, not crocodiles, but I coudl be wrong), which was very cool. I am used to taking these types of tours and seeing nothing. We even got some really great pictures of them. We also saw a lot of different birds. Some they were able to get us really close to. About mid-way through the tour they stopped the boat so we could enjoy the scenery and a rum punch.
After the tour we got a lunch of jerk chicken and rice (included in the cost), which was tastey.
From there we went to YS Falls. The bus drops you off at the base of the plantation on which the falls are locate and you take a jittney type ride to the falls themselves. We had about an hour there to explore on our own. We should have had a longer time but the tour was running late and we had to be at Appleton by a certain time. The falls were beautiful. I spent some time taking photos (I am really into photography), and then went for a swim in the falls. The water was wonderful.
We then went to the Appleton tour.
Of course admission to everything is included in the price - which all three would charge if you go on your own.
