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 did this tour 7 years ago and returned with our 3 kids... 9yo, 7yo and 4yo. Dave is obviously just as passionate about these amazing creatures which makes the cruise feel more authentic and less touristy... good to see old scarface again!

There is a reason these guys are rated no1 on trip advisor - super professional but relaxed tour. Guides are knowledgable and obviously care a lot for the local area and the crocs.

After a little confusion between the skipper and company admin regarding a pick-up option on the north bank of the river, make sure you have a mobile with you to make contact, the little cruise was well worth it. The skipper was informative and a...More

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.
