Birding and Eco-tourism specialist, Reliable Adventures Jamaica was formed in 2003. It was born out of a passion for caring for the environment and a desire to create international awareness of our vast treasure house of endemic flora and fauna. Even today, new species of plant, snake and insect are being discovered here in the near inaccessible rugged interior of our tiny island.

Jamaica Tourist Board approved RAJ Tours has successfully been delivering great birding tours in spectacular scenery with knowledgeable and friendly guides from Bluefields on the south coast since its inception.

Led by owner Wolde Kristos the team spearheads local conservation and environmental initiatives within the community such as the fish sanctuary and turtle watch programmes.

Our well trained, friendly guides give top quality tours for experts and beginners alike. They have an intimate knowledge of the local area and its natural history – not just birds, also butterflies,  dragonflies, lizards, plants, herbal remedies  and their associated local folk lore.

My wife and I have just returned from a Jamaica vacation, which included our 3rd tour with this wonderful group. Wolde, Veda, and Deceita are top-notch birders and considerate hosts. Their tours are well-planned, and they are highly skilled at finding birds, especially the endemic species. We have been very pleased with our experiences, and have booked a 4th tour.

We spent seven wonderful days in the company of Wolde, Vaughan, Deceita and Veda. In that time we saw all Jamaica’s endemic birds as well as several Caribbean endemics. They were always so punctual and so accommodating to our needs. Their birding skills were on a par with anything that we have seen in operation anywhere in the world. Not only were they experts in finding birds by call but their knowledge of the history and culture of Jamaica seemed almost limitless. The whole experience of being on their tour was truly outstanding.
