Overview

We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

Had a great time out on the boat with the lovely Ray. Seen some crocodiles and a few snakes too! Gift shop is great for souvenirs. Despite the rain, it was a awesome trip!

Thanks so much for your review, crocodiles are still out of the water when it is raining as it is still warmer on land than in the water at this time of year.

I recommend the 12 noon cruise because you get a free pie or sausage roll and drink after your cruise. We had Griffin take us out, he was very informative and happy to answer any questions. Gift shop was gorgeous and very reasonably priced.
