I went on the cruise as part of a tour from Cairns to Cape Tribulation. Our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable about the river and its flora and fauna. He warned us that it was quite hot and the chances of seeing crocs were slim but he used his local knowledge to go to the best places and we... More

We wanted to take a river tour in Daintree to see crocs (we hadn´t had any luck seeing crocs in the Daintree Boatman Nature Tour with Murray although the birds and the river were fantastic). In the Cape Tribulation Wilderness Tour we didn´t see anything else but a few crocs. Not too big. The guide seemed bored, It is cheap.... More

We had a fantastic cruise on the 11.30am tour. Ernie is very knowledgeable and we learnt about the mangroves, crocodiles and bird life. We saw a large female guarding her nest and an aggressive male swimming on the surface. I have done most of the cruises on the Daintree river but found this tour on Cooper Creek to be more... More

This was a great 1hr ride down the creek with a local guide to spot crocs. The views were great and it was a lovely respite from the heat to get out on the water in the boat. We saw 2 crocs which we were happy about especially as it's harder to spot crocs in the warmer weather as they... More

We were recommended this by a friend and were really disappointed. i felt that Ernie, the guide, was totally bored. He probably was as he said in his monotone voice that he had been doing this for 26 years. Not informative at all.

I had heard this tour was good... they lie. We saw one and a half crocs, and yes I know they are wild and its luck of the draw, but for something touted as a wilderness tour we saw almost nothing. There was no PA system so when the guide was talking at the back of the boat those at... More

Saw several crocs and very smooth ride in the boat. The guide did non talk non stop, but gave great information on the area, the mangroves and the crocs. Was $32 each which was very good value for money. The guide slowed near the crocs and gave everyone a great photo opportunity, Wold recommend to anyone. Thanks driver from Paul... More

This one hour mangrove croc cruise is great value for money - we saw four crocs! The scenery is stunning too, and you get to see where the mangrove meets the ocean. We learned a little bit about crocs along the way too. A must-do while up at Cape Trib.

Trip was ok. Environment was kind of "the same ". We saw some croqs but Kakadu is so much better. Its not worth the high costs

My wife and I did the one hour tour today up coopers creek and it was a great experience. The boat was perfect for viewing and was comfortable for the hour. We saw three crocs, one female sunning herself, another female swimming around and big daddy himself up on the bank. He was seriously huge. Well worth the $30 odd... More
