Canoeing, Kayaking activities in Black River
For a less regimented (and a more authentic) experience, you can easily hire a guide to take you upriver by canoe or boat. Ask near the bridge in town. Or, if you're continuing on to Treasure Beach, you can hire a boat there for a round-trip tour that includes a stop at the Pelican Bar and a journey up the Black River.
Midday tours are best for spotting crocodiles; early and later tours are better for birding. Take a shade hat and some mosquito repellent.
