Closer to NZ than the Amazon and just as good!

I went on the sunrise trip with Andy. He was flexible and responsive with the trip. After checking there were no time deadlines for anyone to return the two hour cruise became 4 - 5 hours because we were having fun and enjoying it. Saw loads of birds and several water dragons. Andy was able to explain parts of the... More

Like other reviewers we really researched the best Daintree River cruise and wanted to really experience the river, not just hop on and hop off as other cruises seemed to only allow time for. We weren't disappointed with the Daintree River experience and glad we made this call as we could have been there for so much longer and still... More

We checked out a number of Daintree River cruise options, but were attracted to this one by the fact that it was 2 hours and that the brochure seemed to emphasise a bit more about nature than the jingoistic croc-chasing of the others. (We had to work hard to make contact though - both the phone numbers on the brochure... More

Our early-morning bird watching cruise with Andy was outstanding. We saw many birds that were new to us, including some rare ones, and Andy worked hard at finding them. He was very familiar with the river and was able to take us directly to interesting sights such as a tree snake in a hollow log. He listened to what we... More

My family, including two young daughters went on the sunrise boat tour with Andy this August to go birding. Everything was great! He really took us to special, private places where we saw lots of birds, including many kingfishers. It was just perfect in so many ways. His enthusiasm for the river and the birds and his knowledge made it... More

Small group. Ideal type of boat for sightseeing. Very friendly atmosphere generated by Andy, who was an excellent boat handler. He also had extensive wildlife knowledge. This made our trip very interesting. Saw many types of birds, shrubs, trees, mangroves, flowers, nuts, a tree python up close (1 metre away), and of course many Saltwater crocs. Take a good camera.

Just outside the village of Daintree we opted for the 2 hour twilight cruise and had a fabulous time for c$50, seeing frill necked lizard, frog mouth owl, tree snakes and crocs up very close, Royal spoonbills and hundreds of birds flying down the river route roosting in the sunset -this is a great relaxed tour by a very knowledgeable...
