Overview

We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

It was a good tour with several sightings of crocodiles. The staff was very nice and with the tour booking you can have a coffee. The guide was awesome. He could see a lot of animals from very far away!

Tour was great and informative, but it's really down to luck if you see many crocs. Best time to go is at low tide. We saw a baby croc and one a bit older but no huge ones. Decently priced for 1 hour.

Thanks for your review. The best time to view wildlife is at low tide as there is exposed banks for the crocodiles to sit on and bask in the sun

They don't call it a crocodile tour ss they don't guarantee seeing an estuarine (saltwater) crocodile but they try pretty hard. We saw 5 on our trip so we were very pleased. Ray was our boat driver/guide accompanied by his dog which we nicknamed "Tucker"....More

Firstly our brochure does not promise big crocodiles. When you visit the Daintree river you are viewing crocodiles and other wildlife in their natural habitat, so there is no guarantees. It is also suggested by us that you do our tour on a low tide....More
