Owner description: 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.

“Excellent trip - made our day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Very helpful staff first thing in the morning - when a second large group turned up they put on a second boat so only seven on our boat wth tour guide Ray - who was great and did some amazing spots, not just 5-6 brilliant crocs but also birds and snakes too!

"Scar face" was amazing and managed to get really close too.

Would recommended 100%.

Thanks Ray.

“smashing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I was alone and arrived without a booking. the cruise needs a mionimum of 2 so I was lucky 2 others also arrived. One hour, very knowledable young guide/captain, son of teh owner. Every seat has a good quality pair of binoculars which were useful especially with the wonderful birds that he pointed out. We were really close to them but some where very tiny.

His trusty dog Duke kept us company but at a respectful distance from the three guests.

And crocodiles. saw plenty including a male whopper which is about 4.5 metres long and weighs half a ton. Green tree snake too.

Definietly recommend this. An hour was enough but

“Great Tour with a real aussie guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We really enjoyed our 1 hour tour of the Daintree River. Our tour guide (Ray) was a wealth of information and a great character with an awesome sense of humor. He took the time to make sure we saw as many crocs and wildlife as we could. Thanks for a great afternoon with an ice cold beer to go with it.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

A day out exploring was made even better by arriving just in time for a non advertised boat cruise! We arrived at 12.15pm and with just four of us, we set out at 12.30 for our river cruise! Ray (and Jet) was a extremely knowledgable guide who answered all our questions with a great sense of humour and experience. His sighting skills are incredible and we spotted our first croc within 30 seconds of leaving the dock. In total we would have seen at least 10 crocs in all shapes and sizes including the infamous scarface and thin Lizzy. Highly recommended and well worth it! Loved it.
