Overview

1 hour Daintree River wildlife cruise on a solar electric boat, so it is nice and quiet and there are no petrol fumes or exhaust and good for getting close to the wildlife. We are the only boat with "Croc Cam"; a digital video with a very good zoom for showing hard to see animals on a big screen. Wildlife includes Salt Water Crocodiles, snakes, frogs, and birds and also interpretation of the mangrove environment.

We had a lovely trip with solar whisper. We saw three of the adult crocs and several young of varying ages. We went in the 12.45 cruise and the crocs were quite active so we were lucky enough to see two of them get in...More

Solar whisper runs small solar powered boats which are Eco friendly and quite. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. We saw a number of crocodiles up very close. We were provided with information on the crocodiles,birds and flora in the area. Highly recommend.

This is one of the most friendly places we have been too. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and showed us not only crocs but also special frogs and birds. The experience was wonderful and we highly recommend it.

The cooler months are better. The crocodiles will leave the water to warm themselves. The hotter months the water is warm so they don't need to soak up the sun.
