Nature at its best

Forget going to zoos take this tour and see wildlife as it should be in the natural environment. Our guide/skipper was very friendly and you could tell really cares about the Daintree and its varied inhabitants. We saw snakes and birds and were lucky to see croc hatchlings before coming across the bigger crocs. Our guide took a little extra time to make sure we saw a second croc as the tide was high and they were hard to find. Highly recommend this tour.

Great experience. Do It.

Very well organised tour. Friendly staff from reception to tour guide. Offered coffee on arrival in beautiful rainforest surroundings. Small tour group of 12 so plenty of room in boat which included the dog mascot Duke who was very friendly. Saw variety of crocodiles in the wild both in and out of the water. Also a python, green tree frog, variety of birds. Recommend this tour as it is in their environment and on the beautiful Daintree river.

Not only saw crocs but also very educational

Rainy day and got wet, but we’re still lucky enough that the Crocs came out. Learnt a lot about the eco system of the rainforest & river as well as the role everything plays in the circle of life......very enjoyable and great service....a much appreciated hot cuppa afterwards.
