I looked at a lot of croc tour options and am so glad I went with these guys. A small boat, great guide, friendly staff, free pies for lunch... Not to mention monster crocs just metres away! I lucked in to getting there at noon which was low tide and was told this was the best time for croc spotting... More

As others have said, we had good feeling about Bruce's venue. The friendliest atmosphere I've experienced for a long time, really looks after you. They do admit that its seasonal so check out sightings by calling first but we had a great time. tour guide best on the river.

My husband and I recently went on Belcher's river cruise. Our guide Ray was absolutely fantastic. Not only did we get to see and learn about the crocs on the river, but also the unique birds (Papuan Frogmouth) and other reptiles that inhabit the area. He even took some extra time so we could meet scarface. Rays relaxed, casual and... More

We had been told to go on a different cruise in Port Douglas and while the scenery was pretty we saw absolutely no crocs. I had a feeling about Bruce from the moment I saw his ad and decided to take a chance and sign up for a tour. It was awesome!!!! We immediately saw a croc, and then we... More

Our amazing tour guide Ray really did go all the way! He found us crocodiles from baby size to large...and just as our tour was due to finish, he gave up his lunch break to carry on and show us the 'big one'....a monster called scar face! This family run business was great - there was free tea/coffee on arrival... More

My family and I really enjoyed our one hour Daintree River cruise. During the trip we spotted 7 different crocodiles, learned quite a bit about their habitat, eating habits and how they live on the Daintree. Of all the croc tours in the area (we visited a few).... Belcher's was by far the most authentic site on the river.

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
