Friendly, helpful, welcoming & knowledgeable staff. We were advised that due to the very hot weather we might have difficulty seeing crocs (they will be more likely submerged in the river rather than sunning themselves on the bank) but we saw two beauties during our very enjoyable cruise today! A great family friendly tour. Highly recommended.

Beautiful boat trip down the river with sightings of three different sized wild crocodiles. I was shocked to see a another tour boat (bright green) go right pass a crocodile sun baking on a sand island without even sighting it or stopping to look at it!!! We got some great pics of this croc and felt so re assured that... More

I did the lunch time tour and it was great, it's the best value tour in my opinion, we were offered a slushy at the beginning of the cruise as it was quite hot, and when we returned from lunch we received a pie or sausage roll and a cold can of drink. We saw 2 crocodiles on the trip... More

Bruce's wife (?) was at the cashier the day that we got there and was extremely helpful and full of advice for the rest of... More

We were totally disappointed when we went on this one hour cruise at 230pm on the 6th Nov. We were advised by a local in Trinity Beach to use Bruce Belchers company. Well Bruce was nowhere to be seen, and maybe that was the problem. I understand that these companies can't control when wild animals will appear so I am... More

We’re compelled to reply to Mr. Grrr after his report on Trip Advisor on the 7th of November 2014, describing his disappointment after doing our tour. We are obviously surprised as we rank highly on Trip Advisor and have never, ever received scathing criticism like this. Our guides are highly trained in providing information and entertainment. As for Bruce Belcher... More

This tour is an Australian owned business which automatically drew us to the company. Bruce is your laid back host who gave us a tour of crocks and birds and was happy to answer any questions. Friendly staff, complementary tea and coffee recommended

We arrived to Bruce's just before 11 and it was pretty busy. We opted to wait an hour and go on the 12pm cruise and the lady, who was exceptionally helpful, told us we'd get a free pie and drink after the cruise (bonus!!) We bought a couple of drinks and were told we could have a free slushie as... More
