Didn't realize this tour was still available. We've done it a couple of times but it's not easy finding info on it since it's not listed in a lot of the typical places. Next time we're down, we'll have to make the effort and sail the African Queen once again!

We did not realize that this part of Puerto Vallarta existed until we met Captain Vladimir in a restaurant. He introduced himself and offered literature about the tour on the 'African Queen" We were interested and told him we would like to see the sights on a copy of the boat from the movie with Humphrey Bogart, and Katherine Hepburn....

Novel to be on a steam boat; complimentary drinks (beer and non-alcoholic); lots of animals to see. But we noticed, pointed out and identified the birds. Vladimir was very focused to make sure we saw crocodiles but not really aware of other wildlife.

I took my wife and 12 year old granddaughter out on THE AFRICAN QUEEN with Capt. Vlad and Dora his first mate. We saw many Iguanas, Crocs, and various birds. Wished we had taken this tour years ago. This tour should not be missed, you won't be disappointed. The steamboat is a fantastic, quiet way to move around the waterways... More

I have been on four tours up the river on the African Queen. Vladimir, the skipper, and I have become great friends and I would never visit Puerto Vallarta without going on another adventure with him. I've seen crocodiles, iguanas, Great Blue Heron, Yellow Crowned Night Heron, Pelicans, and many other birds. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. I never... More

This tour on Captain Vladimir's steam boat was fabulous. We saw crocodiles, dozens of Iguanas & a ton of different birdlife. Along with the sights, Captain Vladimir told us all the history of the area. We highly recommend this tour to anyone.
