Small and very personal (max. 10) boat tour. Operating since 1993. Experienced, science-based information. See and do much more than on a large boats's one-hour croc-spotting tour. We go where most boats can't and see many special things that they won't. Many people have said that their tour was the highlight of their vacation. "The Nightwatchman" is a 6 metre, open-topped ,shallow draft aluminium punt with 10 very comfortable swivel seats. Powered by quiet, eco-friendly, low emission, fuel-injected "state of the art" 60 hp 4-stroke Mercury outboard motor. One of the best nature-based Daintree River Tours. Private Tours are also available. More than twenty three years of experience on the river.

Fantastic tour! Saw lots of Crocs, Spiders *Shivers* and birds :) Very enjoyable couple of hours.. I would recommend Dan's tour to any of my friends venturing to the Daintree in the future.

Our evening/night tour on the Daintree River with Dan Irby was one of the highlights of our tour of Australia. He met us on the banks of the river in his boat. The ability to gain access was very easy. The seats were comfortable and...More

We are happy to recommend this no frills boat trip. Our tour guide Dan was quietly helpful, allowing us to enjoy the peace and magic of night descending on the Daintree, with all that accompanies it. The colours, vapours, reflections, the moonlight, the bats and...More

We had been on the Daintree river earlier in the day for Tony's Rainforest Tour, and seeing the river at night was completely different. The wildlife that you see at night time is spectacular, and we were able to spot a couple crocodiles, tree frogs,...More

Our intent was to see crocodiles - and we did - large and small. But, to our great pleasure, the serenity of watching egrets glide along the river enroute to their nesting areas, the sunset, tree frogs, bats, and ant purses made our river cruise...More

Crocs are interesting but what made this evening great (and something I was not intending to see) was long lines of Egrets flying just above the water going to roost just on dusk. It was a great sight something I had not witnessed before. Would...More
