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 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.

The cruise, the guides and the staff are fantastic, but you are really taking a punt when you go on the Crocodile Express as you are not guaranteed to see crocodiles. The ticket is good value for $28 as you can go on multiple cruises from two different departure points (Daintree Village and Daintree River Ferry - if you book... More

We did 2 tours on Monday before Anzac Day. The first from the Daintree village at 12:30 with an awesome guide who was also a fruit farmer (wish I remembered his name). He was absolutely fantastic, knowledgable and deserves a full 5 stars as that tour was just hands down brilliant! Yes we saw lots of crocs which made it... More

This tour was a standout just for the great local guide who explained what we were seeing and why we were seeing it. It was a privilege to be on the cruise and seeing 3 crocodiles really topped it off!

Taken for a 1 hour trip on the daintree river by our guide Nick. Ended up being the only people on the tour which gave us loads of room to go around the boat for the best photo opportunities and to ask as many questions as we liked. Nick was extremely nice and very informative - his passion for crocs... More

We went on the upper river cruise at 2pm which coincided with low tide which i thought gave us a good chance to see crocs on the banks. We started upstream briefly to check out a bank to no avail, he explained most action was occurring downstream and that's where we then headed. We quickly saw one sunning on a... More

Great little trip - the drive from Port Douglas is a treat in itself. Despite the wrong time of year and wrong time of day (mid afternoon in March), we saw four crocs, a huge old male, a big female and a couple of smaller one and two year olds. Our guide Nick was very informative and obviously loves his... More

We did the river cruise on the spur of the moment straight off the boat ramp in town. We saw 2 crocks in the wild. One swam under the boat. Great for the kids and adults to see the rainforest and great scenery. Recommend the outing.
