Overview

There is simply no better option then to come on board Snapping Tours and experience the famous world heritage listed wet tropics. Our locally owned and family operated business have generations of local knowledge and have taken interest in learning about the history of the Innisfail area and the surrounding rivers, rain forests, flora and fauna. We happily pass on our knowledge to our friendly customers. This leisurely cruise takes you along the beautiful calm waters of the Johnstone River, where our guides take you for a closer look at the mangroves and wildlife, such as snakes or birds, that live on the banks of the river. You will also experience a close up of the abundant river life such as fish, turtles or even the chance of spotting a cassowary. We have a very keen eye for spotting our fellow crocodile friends in their natural habitat. They will either be lurking beneath the waters or sunning themselves on the sandbanks. Either way it is a spectacular sight! These animals are all unique to the wet tropics and can be mostly spotted all year round. The best chance for spotting wild salt water crocodiles in their natural habitat is during low tide, in the mornings and from May to September. Feel free to contact us to find out more information regarding the prime time to spot crocodiles. Whether it is for an enjoyable day out or a special occasion, our cruises can be tailored to suit the needs for all our customers or groups. This unique cruising experience on the tranquil waters of the Johnstone River awaits you! Check our new sunset experience! A perfect way to end your day. Come on board our 5:30pm tour and enjoy the breathtaking scenery our beautiful Johnstone River has to offer upon nightfall. This 2.5-hour sunset cruise provides opportunities for our customers to take part in spotting wild salt water crocodiles and other nocturnal wildlife that live beneath and along the banks of the Johnstone River. Night time is prime time for crocodiles to begin hunting, so this tour is not to be missed for those interested in seeing and listening to how crocodiles hunt in their natural habitat. Experiencing wild caught mud crabs and guided walks along a secluded beach is also on the agenda. During our boat cruise, our tour guides will check crab pots in the hope of seeing wild caught mud crabs, together with explaining their general features and their habitat. These mud crab’s claws are very powerful and customers can see just how powerful their claws are through a live demonstration. Take a walk along a secluded beach located in a world heritage area comprising of the wet tropics and cassowary habitat. Our guides take you for a guided walk along the beach, with a chance of spotting cassowaries and other wild bird species. *Additional cost for food platters* During the tour, food will be provided. There is a choice of a seafood platter and fish chips is also on the menu. Our food is provided by the lovely people at Innisfail Seafood and Walla's fish and chips. We thank them for their catering options and service! (Please note that you must book for the seafood platters and the fish and chips either through Snapping Tours Sunset Tours and Dinner Cruises or you can contact us via phone or email).

Highly recommend Snapping Tours. We headed out towards the heads in search of crocs. Not the right time of year, but still managed to see two smalk crocs, and the time on the water was lovely anyway.
