I was alone and arrived without a booking. the cruise needs a mionimum of 2 so I was lucky 2 others also arrived. One hour, very knowledable young guide/captain, son of teh owner. Every seat has a good quality pair of binoculars which were useful especially with the wonderful birds that he pointed out. We were really close to them... More

We really enjoyed our 1 hour tour of the Daintree River. Our tour guide (Ray) was a wealth of information and a great character with an awesome sense of humor. He took the time to make sure we saw as many crocs and wildlife as we could. Thanks for a great afternoon with an ice cold beer to go with... More

A day out exploring was made even better by arriving just in time for a non advertised boat cruise! We arrived at 12.15pm and with just four of us, we set out at 12.30 for our river cruise! Ray (and Jet) was a extremely knowledgable guide who answered all our questions with a great sense of humour and experience. His... More

We took a trip on the Daintree with these guys. Great value, personalized and professional. I highly recommend this company (there are plenty to choose from) but from our experience it was tremendous. Got off the boat and they even give free pies and drinks.

Our family had the best time on the Daintree with a really knowledgable guide. He took so much time to point out the crocs from 1 month of age to the big daddy "Scarface". Along with showing us the crocodiles he also took great delight in pointing out a white lipped frog and many birds and a variety of plant... More

What a great time we had with (can't remember his name) and his dog "DUKE". Drove up to the Daintree from Palm Cove and had no idea what we were going to do and saw the sign for Bruce Belchers River Cruises and thought, that might be fun. What a great decision. Saw lots of crocs, snakes, frogs etc. Was... More

Great hour out on the river. Saw a croc within 30 seconds of casting off. Great friendly family run business and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Such an interesting trip down the Daintree River with our fantastic guide Ray, We got to see Scar Face, Margaret, Elizabeth and many more amazing crocs. I'm sure Ray has hawk eyes, there's nothing he doesn't see, he even spotted a baby croc in the bushes and backed up to show us! As well as seeing all the amazing crocs,... More

We drove to the Daintree from Port Douglas to visit Bruce Belcher's based on a recommendation. Our party consisted on one adult and two teenagers. We had the best time on the boat. We were on a 2pm cruise. Our handsome guide, Ray, did an outstanding job - he spotted 8 crocs of various ages, a tree snake, frogs and... More

Bruce Belcher was our driver and his daughter booked us in at the front desk. They were all very friendly. We did a middle of the day cruise and lunch and a soft drink were included as well as tea and coffee on arival. On the river we saw a few crocodiles and birds - which Bruce is obviously passionate...
