We took my young children to see this and this was one of the highlights of their time in Costa Rica! They loved seeing the tricks the crocodile man tour does with the crocodiles. They tour guide made sure to show us all sorts of wild life around the river and they gave us time to take pictures too.

We took this tour with Johny, and Brian. Brian drove the boat, and fed the crocodiles. Johny gave the commentary. It was a very enjoyable, and informative tour. Brian did an amazing job of find the crocodiles and getting them to come up out of the water after food. He even caught a baby and took it aboard so passengers could take pictures up close. A most enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

We took this boat trip with Crocodile Man tours and had a great time. The animals and birds we were shown would not have been noticed by us without the sharp eyes of the crew.
Twice we stopped and they fed by hand huge crocodiles and at one time even got into the water and pulled the tail of an 18 ft one.
A very enjoyable interlude and I would recommend this company to anyone who wants to see birds and animals up close and personal

You will enjoy a few hours of river boating with beautiful scenery, lots of birds and wildlife - and then of course the ENORMOUS crocs being hand-fed with fish and chicken at the water's edge by your guide. Expected a little, but enjoyed it a lot!

Take Binoculars with you and have your camera ready at all times as this trip is a great opportunity to see many birds.

The Crocodiles were enormous and did get pretty close so keep your arms in and your eyes peeled.

Good way to spend a couple of hours, the boat was safe, dry and easy to get on and off from.
