Overview

Crocodile Express operate from 2 locations on the beautiful Daintree River. The "Upper Daintree Cruise" departs from Daintree Village. Our office and check-in are located in Daintree Tourist Information Centre in the Village centre. "Lower Daintree Cruise" departs from Daintree Gateway, 300 meters before the Daintree Ferry Crossing, look for the big croc head to check-in. Both cruises are different in landscape and environment, upper Daintree cruise starts from Daintree Village going through rainforest and country farming pastures with the lower Daintree cruise goes past rainforest and mangroves. Crocodiles, abundant birdlife and reptile can be seen on both cruises. Take one cruise and take the second free ! You are welcome to come back as many times as you like. Go to our website for conditions. There is no better value wildlife cruise in tropical Queensland.

We did both cruises (Upper and Lower Daintree) with Crocodile Express. We would definitely recommend the tour that leaves from the Daintree Village (Upper Daintree). We were the only boat on that section of the river (there were two others on the Lower Section) and...More

We loved our trips out with this company. Saw crocodiles but they were all in the water apparently that starts to happen at this time of year, as water warms up, no need to sun themselves. We learnt so much from the guides and they...More

Decided on this cruise over the numerous ones on offer, as this was relatively moderately priced and departed from the Daintree village jetty. The tour was operated out of well maintained and comfortable boats, which gave you great views of the crocs. The guide was...More

This cruise includes two trips in one and is the best value. We saw two crocodiles even though it was high tide! The tour guide was great, pointing out excellent facts. Would highly recommend.
