At the mouth of the Coral Sea, Cape Tribulation Cruises will take passengers along Cooper Creek into the interior for half an hour. This is part of the Daintree National Park and worth your time. Thick vegetation, interesting bird life and breeding place of estuarine...More

This was a 1 hour leisurely cruise up the Cape Tribulation Section of Daintree National Park. We saw and got pictures of several crocodiles. The Capitan/Guide was knowledgeable of the area and wild life.

The guide had a great sense of humour and was very knowledgeable of the cape tribulation area and the cooper's creek eco system. We saw 2 female crocs and lots of birds. The scenery was great!

Sure, you cannot assure your clients that they will see crocodiles during a river cruise, it gets a bit tricky though if you advertise your tour as 'croc cruises'. Although we did learn a thing or 2 about crocodile behaviour and mangroves, it would have...More
