28 people on a small boat sailing around Cooper Creek with guide who repeatedly told us how long he had been doing the trip ( 25 year, 7 days a week) and clearly had little enthusiasm about what he was getting paid for (ie to provide informative guide re area and crocs) and a little enthusiasm for cranking out the...

We chose these guys because we were staying up near Cape Trib. Loved the smallness of the outfit and the fact we had 2 croc sightings before we had even boarded the boat. It showed us how real these creatures are! I thought the guide probably could have had a bit more of professional spiel but he did make an... More

A small boat with a very knowledgeable local who found plenty of crocodiles. It was great to see them on the Creek , and see how they behaved. Saltwater Crocodiles in the wild are amazing, and we enjoyed the hour looking for them.

We booked the tour on the basis of trip advisor recommendations and it was good. The skipper was enthusiastic and knowledgable, although he occasionally exaggerated reality to the overseas tourists, much to our amusement. The region and nature is truly magnificent and we learned a lot about the 5 varieties of mangroves in the Daintree. We spotted the obligatory crocodile... More

Mangroves and multiple crocs from the guy who knows his business! Cruise just the right length to educate and enjoy without boring the kids. Website doesn't reflect how good it is!!

This goes on the smaller Cooper Creek, the only boat that can do so, so it's definitely a less "touristy" experience. We booked this as part of the Cooper Creek Wilderness package deal. We were even the first boat of the day so the river was really calm and peaceful. We saw about 6 crocs (4 adults, 2 babies). The... More

We had some time left on our way out of Cape Tribulation and decided to go on a croc cruise. The Wilderness Cruise appealed to us because it is the only one that goes into Cooper Creek, making it a more secluded experience than the tours on the bigger Daintree River. It is also a smallish boat that can take... More

Saw crocs, views along the river were lovely. Quiet and un-touristed. Informative and amusing guide. Whole family loved it. So glad we chose this one and not the cruises on the Daintree river.
