WE really enjoyed the Black River cruise. Lots of different birds, fish, the crocodiles and the vegetation makes the tour a delightful couple of hours with a really good meal. Very relaxing.

Took this as part of TUI's Southern Adventure tour. The tour up the Black River was about 45 minutes and was a real great experience, we had sight of many crocodiles, birds and shrubs the river had to offer, great experience would definitely go again!

This was a terrible tour. Saw two crocodiles. The guide did not feed them at all. Save your money and don't go. Jose's Crocodile Tour in Costa Rica was amazing. This was flat out awful.

As far as I know there are not scheduled times. They usually wait when they know others are showing up so they can fill the boat.
