“Great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Enjoyed our river cruise on the Lady Douglas. Certainly is great value with a complimentary drink before starting and afternoon tea along the way.They also supplied insect repellant if needed. The Ladies in charge kept us informed along the way and we were lucky enough to see four crocs . Great afternoon and would highly recommend it .

“The best boat trip in Port!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is definitely the best value for money this to do in Port Douglas. We take the cruise every time we are there, 5 times. Its never the same as you see something different each trip. I bet you will see crocodiles, we have on each trip. Don't miss this when you are in Port Douglas!

“Nice river cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We booked on this river/inlet cruise hoping to see some crocodiles, but unfortunately the crocs didnt want to come out and play but thats not a reflection of this tour company. The boat is an old paddle steamer which is geat and the skipper and deckie were lovely. The cruise itself was great, nice to travel up the inlet and take in the sights of this area. As i said unfortunately we didnt see any crocs but that was probably due to some guys in a small speed boat hooning past us to go fishing, which would have scared them.
We will try again next time we come back to Port Douglas.

“A unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

What a wonderful unique experience on board Lady Douglas with first hand knowledge given with a sense of humor by our Captain Grahame who made the day informative and fun as we sought the crocs in an environment quite unique in the Port Douglas landscape and were lucky enough to sight an adult and young. Highly recommend the experience.
