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...

We did the 4pm cruise, fantastic service, (beer or wine for adults on 4pm cruise only, slushy for kids), lots of crocs, birds, water monitors etc. Guide (Griff) was very knowledgable, friendly and had great ability to find wildlife and position boat for good viewing

We loved our river tour with this company. It was well-run and safe. We were lucky to see several big crocs and half a dozen yearlings and two year olds, as well as lots of beautiful birds and a snake. Our host, Bruce's son, was very informative, personable and helped us get good views of all the creatures. The cruise... More

we very much enjoyed our morning trip on the river with Griffith Belcher. The river is impressive and the resident crocodiles even more so! we saw about 7 different crocodiles, plus some birdlife. It was well worth the early start from Palm Cove.

If you are planning a trip to the Daintree, I would advise fitting in an early river cruise first before you cross the river on the ferry. The queue for the ferry can get a bit busy so best to do an early cruise and then cross the river before "rush hour". That's exactly what we did today .. arrived... More

Bruce Belcher's Daintree River Cruises crocodile tour today was, for us as grandparents and our grandchildren, the highlight of our time in Cairns and Far North Queensland. It was very reasonably priced for us - and the courtesy and professionalism of the staff was fantastic. No other attraction or facility on our trip has been as well presented, courteous and... More

This was a fantastic, professionally run cruise! Our guide Griffith was really knowledgeable and friendly, and he made sure we got to see a variety of animals on the Daintree including 'Scarface' the big male croc, and some very young ones too! An hour was the perfect amount of time and I recommended you add this cruise to your itinerary... More

Really friendly family show that has been running tours for 30 years. Well run. Very interesting. Lots of crocs and wildlife - these guys have hawk like eyes! An hour is about right - Although we went 15 mins longer as scar face (the dominant male on that part of the river) had emerged and our guide went the extra... More
