close with crocodiles, see butterfly’s, bats...

Worth while and possibly the best value experience we have done while staying at Port Douglas. Family owned business, father and sons working on ensuring we had a great time.

Great Croc Tour

Friendly staff in a beautiful setting. Free slushy or coffee/tea with your ticket. The boats were comfy and shaded. The guide knew the river well and were able to spot the crocs and other wildlife very quickly. Very informative. Family run business so worth the visit!

Great starter river experience

Really enjoyable and informative. 1 hour is a perfect amount of time if you just want to see some wildlife and get out on the river for a little while. We saw 3 crocs! Our guide was Bruce and he was great.

We only saw 2 crocodiles so that was a bit disappointing but you cart help nature.

Dear Guest Thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry your experience did not meet your expectations. Yes we are a wildlife operator and we are subjected to many variables which we have no control of. Thank you for acknowledging this. Other than only seeing 2 crocodiles Please feel free reach out to us with any further comments you wish to share, concerns, or suggestions. We would love to know if there were other aspects of the tour that you may have been disappointed with leading you to review us for only 3 stars.
