We found this place by accident and had a wonderful informative trip on the river with Ray. His sense of humour was great. Seeing the crocodiles in their own habitat was a joy would recommend to everyone

Lovely reception area with nice gifts, clean loos and free cuppa tea. Got good family run feel immediately. Tour boat well worth $70 for family. Smaller than some other boats and we got in quite close. Saw birds, snakes and several crocs of course. The guide Ray had a dry sense of humour but also the wildlife knowledge to back... More

Informative tour. Ray was great. Lots of time looking and finding crocodiles of all shapes and sizes. Kids thought it was great. We all enjoyed the informal chat after the tour and kids especially loved the slushies. Really relaxed atmosphere.Thank you.

Bruce Belchers does not disappoint! I saw two large crocs, a python, various birds and several baby crocs! The small boat tour is wonderfully informed and it is the best I have personally experienced on the Daintree!

No shortage of crocs large and small on our one hour tour. Good commentary from the guide and some exotic bird sightings as well.

The boat was comfortable and well designed for viewing from all angles. Binoculars were provided and the guide Griffin grew up on the River so had all the... More
