This was a wonderful tour and very informative about the magroves. Allan was the tour guide and he knew a lot about the eco system and how it all worked. We got to see a couple of crocs but the real excitement was seeing the 5m+ male crocodile who had been in a fight with something equally as big. This... More

The tour was just that.. Okay. Will not be returning as there was no information. The tour guide was just over it. A lady asked "why are there no birds around?" He replied " it's the tropics... Get up earlier to see them, around 5am" in a harsh tone. He was not enthusiastic about his job at all.

A quiet morning, just the four of us, a private tour. Good to go early, as the crocs heat up and seek the shade or the water, we were fortunate to see one female sunning herself and showing off. Lots of questions answered, and a keen eye pointed out the hidden treasures.

This cruise was fantastic. We only got to see one crocodile but the cruise was still worth it. The driver was full of very interesting facts. It's the only cruise to go through Cape tribulation. You even go past Where the crocodiles nest. I highly recommend this cruise.

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
