We saw five crocs including two mature females and a massive 4m adult male. It helped that the sun was out I think as this seemed to make them sit in visible places.

The best part of the tour was the guide, Daniel Sosa. Its best to go in winter if you want to see crocodiles. Nice views.

Loved this cruise! Classic Australian tour guide, very knowledge with years of experience but relaxed with a good sense of humour. Just kick back and enjoy the scenery (and maybe see a crocodile like we did!)

It's a tropical wild beach unfortunately not suitable for swimming because of crocodiles and dangerous jelly fish but still worth seeing when visiting Cairns. The beach is surrounded by tropical rain forest.

We thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip. It went nice and slow so we could see but the crocodiles were in hiding! We only saw one baby. Do take a trip as it is great!

This tour costs $5 more than the tours positioned just before the Daintree ferry crossing, but you will be the only boat on the river here. Ernie who is at the helm, knows his stuff and can spot a croc at a fair distance so...More
