Overview
More
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.

It's a shame most people put such a high priority on spotting crocodiles, when the river cruise itself is well worth the cost of this trip. It's absolutely beautiful. We did see a croc, but it was very hot being early January, so the crocs...More

Thanks for your review.Low tide and in cooler months is the best time to see crocodiles.To be able to experience wildlife in the wild is far better than crocodile farms or a zoo.

We arrived for our 2:30 cruise in the middle of a rainstorm but we still had an excellent time. We got to see a large crocodile, some interesting birds and a tree snake. The guide was excellent and knowledgeable and we enjoyed the entire trip.
