My river snorkelling adventure with Back Country Bliss was totally out of this world. Like nothing else I have ever experienced, the peace and beauty of the Daintree excited, relaxed and exhilarated me. Our guide was fun, informative and organised, we felt in the best of hands. Take a trip you will never forget and get your Bliss on.

Our experienced guides Jason & Glen are so knowledgeable and helpful so although I was the only one in the party who had never snorkeled it was not a problem. They gave us information about the ecology & history... More
