We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

The Best of The Best. Ask if Ray is driving the boat you will have the Best of The Best river cruise and see all of the big crocs money back guarantee if you don't see one. One tip watch out for the snakes in the trees. Best $25 dollars you will spend

From the moment we arrived we were very impressed with the place. The workers were friendly, and very informative. The cruise along the river was fantastic and our kids loved it. Looked much better presented then some of the other river cruise companies along the Daintree.

We arrived on spec and timed it right for the 11 am tour....may want to book in advance...pretty much a family run business with very friendly staff and a nice little shops which provides free coffee whilst you wait for the tour. Our tour was with Bruce....they have been running since 87 or thereabouts so he is incredibly knowledgeable and... More

We went on this river cruise with 5 adults and an infant and it was great. Our tour guide Bruce was friendly and informative and could spot crocodiles and other animals with ease. We took a 14 month old on the cruise and were made to feel welcome and included from the moment we entered the boat, even when our... More

I can't really compare to other croc cruises being our first however sadly this day was not a day to see crocs. We saw only 2, one out in open well enough to see but driver did his best to get close. When heading out there was some basic info about the river or such but we could not hear... More

We went on the river / croc-spotting cruise with Ray and Jet (Ray's super-cool dog :-))). Ray was a cool guide, he had some great stories and info to share about the river and croc's. As guides, they all know their stuff, as Bruce has been observing these incredible animals for decades. Worthwhile reading the info in the cafe. The... More

For a low price of $27 minus a 10% off from a voucher from our accommodation, we took the last cruise of the day. With a free wine/beer, we boarded a comfortable boat and saw two adult and two baby crocodiles. This was despite the fact that apparently at that time of day that's when the crocs consider reentering the... More

We did the afternoon cruise with Ray and his cute dogs and it was absolutely beautiful. We saw crocodiles, snakes and birds, what a lovely tour!

What an outstanding tour. We had the opportunity to see crocodiles of all different sizes, snakes and an array of birds, all in their natural habitat. Ray, the boat driver and tour operator was extremely knowledgeable and good humoured. A great day and value for money.
