This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to the Daintree as our 3 children were looking forward to seeing crocodiles. The owner/guide turned up one hour late and said that he had forgotten the time, and put on a big act about how silly he was! Totally implausible: we didn't believe him as I'd phoned him 20... 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.

It was a warm day so we weren't expecting a lot of crocs but we saw 4, 2 adults and 2 small. It's not an overly commercial exercise, you basically stop at a spot signposted on the road (which could be easily missed) and quick walk in to where the boat is tied up. It probably wouldn't suit if you... More

The hour long trip on Coopers Creek was a great experience. Both the boat and it's captain were not young but he had been doing trips for around 20 years. Scenery is great. He is knowledgable about the area. We saw two crocodiles - one male 5.5 metres long. Awesome. Well worth the $30.

Which is really what we came for. We didn't mind that the boat was old and battered or that the skipper wasn't all that enthusiastic. We went on an afternoon cruise with nobody else on board, and because of the heat our captain really wasn't all that optimistic about our spotting any crocs. But we saw a 3,5 m female... More

We did see one croc because of the season but the reason I found this tour to be average is that our captain didn't seem to have a great deal of knowledge of the creatures he was trying to find. Half the boat was taken up by park rangers who were asking him questions and most of the time he... More

I went with my family on this hour long Wilderness Cruise on Coopers Creek. We were warned that during the summer months it's much harder to see crocs but the mangrove-lined Creek was stunning anyway wirth beautiful views of the mountain. It did start to look like we wouldn't see a croc but then we spotted one and it was... More

We drove to Daintree area from Palm cove. This trip was recommended by the manager of our accommodation. Was a short but informative trip. Easy to find and prompt response when enquiring about trip. We didn't book ahead. Not overly commercial and playing respect to the locals chrocs of cooper creek

Loved this tour. It was only an hour but we saw about 7 crocodiles very close up, including an absolutely monstrous male crocodile that seemed like it was out of a horror film, and also a tiny baby one. Got some great photos! The guide gave some interesting info on the wildlife and obviously knew what he was talking about,... More

Well worth the hour spent. Ernie knows the river, the ecology, where and how to find the crocs, the area wildlife and has a great sense of humor. This is a casual, down to earth cruise of Cooper Creek's mangroves.
