Overview

1 hour Daintree River wildlife cruise on a solar electric boat, so it is nice and quiet and there are no petrol fumes or exhaust and good for getting close to the wildlife. We are the only boat with "Croc Cam"; a digital video with a very good zoom for showing hard to see animals on a big screen. Wildlife includes Salt Water Crocodiles, snakes, frogs, and birds and also interpretation of the mangrove environment.

We had a wonderful time with David. We saw so many crocodiles as well as lots of other wildlife. He is incredibly knowledgable and factual and he has a great video camera which he zooms in on difficult to see wildlife with. Thanks again!

This cruise was excellent. The guide was very informative and very accommodating. Being solar powered, the boat was quite quiet and we were able to approach very near to the crocs. The scenery was marvellous and the experience very worth while.

A very relaxing cruise to check out the crocodiles and birdlife on the Daintree River, it rained most of the time but that happens a lot in the rainforest. The boat was quiet and the guides were very friendly and informative.

To see nature its not about having an appointment - Its about knowing where to find the gems. The Solar Whisperer (David) guided us stealthy along the river banks to meet Scarface, Elizabeth, baby crocs and a new croc on the block. We saw birds...More

Interesting and informative. Saw baby to huge crocodiles. Electric boat was very quiet and allowed you to get within a couple of meters of the crocodiles.

It's an enviro friendly boat that runs off a battery from the solar panels on the roof! Boat driver is your guide. He can spot a croc a mile away. It's only a small group so it's easy to ask questions and feel involved. We...More

We were met by the very welcoming Martin who offered us coffee and biscuits. Boat was solar powered so glided along the river quietly. Gave us an informative and scenic tour of this amazing area. Good value for money.

The cooler months are better. The crocodiles will leave the water to warm themselves. The hotter months the water is warm so they don't need to soak up the sun.
