Does anyone no if Vladimir's wife is still running this boat? We got the sad news a few years ago that he passed. I am hoping that Dora kept the business going as I would like to send clients to here when they visit in August.

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.
