Had a great time! Very professionally run whilst at the same time warm and friendly. Our guide knew his stuff and is also clearly passionate about this incredible ecosystem and it's residents. Whilst croc sightings aren't guaranteed (and that's to be expected given they are in their natural environment - much nicer than those horrid baiting shows I've seen videos... More

This morning we had a great boat trip on the daintree river. The skipper is very well informed about everything that lives in and near the river. He has a thorough and deep knowledge of crocodiles. We even spotted a crocodile. Besides the above he is a charming and humorous person and great fun to make a trip with. The... More

Overall the experience was ok, but didn't hit the mark. They were running late for our trip, which normally we wouldn't mind but it was very hot waiting out in the sun! When we did get underway we saw 3 baby crocs (the size of small lizards) but that was all. I understand that they aren't going to always know... More

Hi Katie, Thanks for the review although we are sorry to hear you didn't get to see as much as you hoped! Working with wildlife can be challenging like that - they just don't run on a schedule. If you are still in the area and would like to come back for another cruise give me a call and I... More

We joined this river cruise as part of the Billy Tea Safari Daintree excursion. This was both tranquil and exciting -- tranquil because you drifted down river and saw all sorts of beautiful flora, but the fauna (read: crocodiles!) were really exciting. Don't miss this. Very hospitable with a cup of tea and a biscuit before you embark, and friendly... More

Enjoyed this cruise with Bruce - a very knowledgeable guide, who managed to find a number of crocodiles, including scar face the alpha male. The only negative - we found out after the cruise started that it was 90min ( rather than 60 as advertised). 30 mins were spent motoring up the river to pick up a bus load of... More

Saw a 4.2m salt water croc... wow!!! Fully understand why there are so many warning signs near waterways!! Heed the warnings!! Natural predators- these guys are all about food... anything with a heartbeat is food! You enter their domain it's at your risk. Love seeing animals in their natural environment!

There are a number of operators offering daintree river cruises but I can't recommend these guys highly enough. From the moment I walked into the reception I was made to feel very welcome. The tour guide was full of local knowledge which made this an amazing tour. Thank you.

We walked in off the street (without a booking) for the first tour of the day. Unfotunately this was full due to a coach party but Shay explained that it would be better to return later in the day when it was quieter. She wasnt wrong. We came back for the 3pm and it was just us (2 adults 3... More
