OK, so it's a fake paddle steamer (I come from near the Murray River where they're real!), but a great boat to cruise the inlet adjacent Port Douglas. The boat is very comfy and your ticket includes a drink and some nibbles. As you cruise...More

Aside from crocodile hunting, you also get running commentary on crocodiles in general and the history of Port Douglas as you cruise. Drinks and nibbles are included in the price and it is great way to spend an evening on the water. Would definitely recommend!
