tours available in cape tribulation-- which ones?????

we are staying at the ferntree at the end of June--word on the net is to take a walk with Pru, but how do we find her? does anyone know how to book a tour with her?---we'll have 4 full days up there (and then at then end of our trip we will be back up in port douglas area for several more days) and we are travelling with two children (8 and 10 ) and will probably do a reef trip from here (any recs?) as well as another from port douglas--- can anyone give me an idea of what they liked (or didn't like!) and what they recommend??

many thanks

I very much enjoyed the night walk from Crocodylus with a guy called Possum. He was a real character. During this walk we saw an excellent web casting spider, who holds his little web between his feet and fires it at tasty treats.

I've found an old web blog by him so you can get the idea:


You don't have to be staying there to book on the walk, but this link will give you an idea of where it is (near Cow Bay):

Hi spinny,

Pru is the owner of Cooper Creek Wilderness. They have a couple of different option in tours. I would wait until you get there before you book. Ferntree Lodge will have the brochure available for you to look at and decide which walk you'd prefer to take and they can find out for you which one is avalable on which day.

From Cape Tribulation, you don't have much of a variety in reef trips.

Rumrunner and Odyssey H20 are the only two that I know of.

From Port Douglas the choices are endless, depending on whether you'd like to snorkel only or scuba dive, let me know.

Has anyone done the night walk at 8 PM with Cooper Creek Tours? DO you know if this is a good option for early August? Or would the day walk with same tour guide be better at this time of year?
