Deep-sea fishing is the main activity here. Although hiking in Black River itself is is next to impossible, it serves as an ideal base for the ample hiking opportunities at Black River Gorges National Park further inland and Le Morne Peninsula to the south.
The estuary at Black River suddenly plunges 700m down to the ocean floor, making it one of the island's deep-sea-fishing hubs. Peak season is between November and March, when you can catch blue marlin. Black marlin and barracuda can be caught throughout the year, the yellowfin season is from March to May and the wahoo season is around September to December.
