The Indian River has quite the reputation as the “wildest” river on the island. Scenes from “Pirates of the Caribbean” were filmed in this area. There is a multitude of things to do on the river, from bird-watching to boat tours to simply lounging at the ‘Bush Bar’ for a drink and smoked fish. The Indian River is a mangrove-fringed waterway that flows into the Caribbean Sea between the town of Portsmouth and the village of Glanvilla.
The boat rides are great for all ages of the family and the best opportunity to view the river’s wildlife. There are day-trip outfitters that can transport you and your family from your hotel to the river for a day of activity in the lush paradise.
