We brought our kiddos on this tour and it was incredible. They loved every minute, even learning about the different bird species that were in the water. I'd recommend this tour for a family or friends who want a different and local experience of Jaco.

Our family took a tour with Jason in March, 2013 and we still all remember it with enjoyment and excitement. We have seen him on an episode of House Hunters International and were so glad to see he was still doing well. As we enjoyed the excellent tour and all the knowledge of the local creatures, he shared about himself and his business as well. That amazing tour came up in a photo from our adventure on Facebook just now, and I thought I would look him up. So glad that you are still in business, Jason. You are so knowledgeable and personable. All the best to you! Take care.

We booked originally this trip with one of his competitors , who cancelled it at the end, but were more than happy that Crocodile Man were still offering this trip. When we arrived at the reception desk, we were warmly welcomed. Once the payment was done, we drive for another 1 – 1.5 km to the deck where all boat trips are starting (and ending) . Once there, we were welcomed by our guide. Few minutes later we were on the boat … with 2 other persons. So, basically we had a private tour. The boat was veryyyyy big and stable. Both the guide and driver were very skilled, knowledgeable and spotted quite a lot of (small) birds. Very nice trip.

We were on a private tour in Costa Rica, and as part of it the company set up a boat trip to see American Crocodiles. Being at there are only 2,000 or less in the US; this was an exciting time for us, and let me tell ya, this company did not disappoint! The boat was large and stable, comfortable. Our guide (Juan) passed around laminated reference guides so that as we spotted wildlife, Juan would call out their number and their name. I thought this was a very clever idea and everyone seemed to be able to follow along easily and without issues. We saw many native birds and reptiles as well as crocodiles as we cruised the river in hunt of wildlife. After our hunting/seeking jaunt, Juan and the boat driver began the cruise in search of big crocodiles. As we passed by other boats, we noticed that the other guides were shaking their heads saying; "no big crocs today". Juan pushed on and sure enough they found us a dandy! The croc was on the other side of the river and Juan called him over...….once the croc next to the boat, the captain got out of the boat and into the water with a piece of chicken! Sure enough, the croc came over to the driver and "snapped" the chicken right out of his hands! This was, to make it even more interesting......right next to the boat!! Great time, lots to see; would recommend anyone looking to see native creatures in their native environments!

I enjoyed this tour from start to finish. We left right on time. Slid into the Tercoles River and immediately started to see herons and egrets, hawks in the trees. There were about ten people on the boat. Our guide Jason and captain Luis were experts, felt 100% safe in their hands. Jason knew his stuff, and I enjoyed his commentary as we moved along the river seeing the many animals we were fortunate to see. Luis maneuvered the boat gracefully. We encountered two large crocs upriver, and Luis surprised everyone by jumped out of the boat on to shore and feeding one. It was an enormous beast. He did it again later with another. Once was enough for me. Those animals are scary. Also, I'd like to note that Costa Ricans own this business.
