We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

We enjoyed the trip - felt very safe with friendly driver and saw lots of crocs in the wild. BUT i was disappointed that there was food and drink included in the price, and that the food was a pie/pastie or sausage roll. Nothing healthy offered. But the worst thing was that the pies were made in Western Australia!!!! I... More

We had a great trip seeing about half a dozen crocs on the banks, our guide was very informative and funny. We went on the 4pm sailing and got a free wine or beer which was even better and with the free coffee was great value.

Great value cruise of the Daintree with Ray, who is an informative and entertaining guide. He knew the regular haunts of the crocs and we saw 6 during our tour. Full of interesting facts re crocodiles and local area.

Took the 1:30pm cruise got to see a few crocs, local birds and fauna. Was only 8 people on our cruise which was great. Tour guide who's name wasn't Bob was really informative and entertaining. Well worth it the $27.

We had Ray as our guide, who was really informative and a good laugh. He knew exactly where the crocs would be, and we saw four. Thanks for a great croc spotting trip!

We took the 9:30am (Thursday) 1-hour cruise with Ray as our tour guide. In a 24-seater boat, there were only 10 of us, and there was one pair of binoculars for each seat of 2 people (12 pairs), to help spot the crocs in the distance. It took a little while, but we ended up spotting five crocs along the... More

Had the most amazing experience on the Daintree River today. Our river guide Ray from Bruce Belcher's Daintree River Cruises got us in pole position to view a rare fight between 3 crocodiles! These guys know the river like the back of their hand. Highly recommended.

We arrived 15 mins before the 3.30pm tour started, so we were really lucky that we could get on it and didn't have to wait long. We were told we could have had a free cup of tea or coffee when we returned, because there wasn't enough time to have it before. Our guide Ray was very entertaining and full... More
