Tours and Excursions from Sandals Whitehouse

There have been lots of inquiries about tours and excursions from Sandals Whitehouse or in that area in general. There are several great tours that I have gotten good feed back on, and others I'm sure I haven't heard about yet.

I will list this topic as another one of my Top Questions links that you can always refer to in the top right corner of these posts. We haven't had any for the Whitehouse area (Top Questions), so I am trying to build some up.

Please help add to this list, make corrections, and provide personal experiences with tours. Thanks.

These are just a few of the tours/excursions I have heard about:

YS Falls

Black River

Pelican Bar, Treasure Beach

Dolphin Encounters/Cove

Rick's Cafe

Appleton Rum Estates

Short list, but perhaps others can add to it and add their personal experiences with them. Sandals Whitehouse has Island Routes that organizes their tours for them from the WH. Also, refer to the Top Questions on the right for drivers that provide tours too. Thanks.

RandB...you are doing a great job at getting more info out about Whitehouse! Kudo's to you!

I can highly recommend both the Black River Safari and YS Falls. We've been to both these places and thoroughly enjoyed them. The Black River Safari brought us up close and personal to crocodiles, plus I loved the peacefulness and beauty of the river and it's large mangroves. YS Falls is lovely...another great place to pass the time climbing the falls or relaxing in the water or doing some of the activites such as the zip line and rope swing. We spent part of the afternoon relaxing by the spring fed pool. I would recommend for those who go, to definitely wear water shoes as the rocks are slippery!

RandB...I'm only estimating as I didn't really track the time, so hopefully others can chime in. I think it took us about 30 mins to get to Black River from SWH and I think YS Falls was 45 minutes from SWH.

I would think that Mayfield Falls (also called Riverwalk) is also doable from SWH. We did it from SN, so I can't really tell you how far it is. We really loved Mayfield Falls - better than YS. Not sure if it is still open though - read something recently that made it sound as though it is now closed. Maybe someone else can clarify the status.

Hey TP. We are on the road in MI.

Is Mayfield Falls on the WH side of SN or the other side?

You mention the Pelican Bar, any info on how far it is from SWH? Is this a road trip then boat to the bar, or more of a stop included with a day sail/snorkeling trip? We'll be back at SWH in Jan 2012. Can't wait.
