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.

Absolutely amazing. We saw very big crocs (4 m or so) as well as snakes and many birds on the mangroves. Customer service was great and we really enjoy the jokes or our friendly guide. Awesome small company.

Couldn't wait to do this attraction and see some crocs in the wild. Ray and Jet (his dog) were on the boat and took us down the river looking for Crocs, birds and snakes. We got lucky seeing the dominant Scar Face and 4 other crocs ranging in sizes. Even lucky enough to see the croc take a bite at... More

WOW...if you want to see crocs and other amazing wildlife in their native environment then this is the place to go. We did the 4pm tour with drinks and nibbles and found it to be very informative. Robert was our guide and he was a wealth of information about the river, the crocs and all manner of things Daintree. He... More

The tour was friendly and laid back, our guide Ray was great and got us up close to the crocs and other wildlife. We were happy to support this family run business. Recommend the 4pm ride for the low tide and free beer or wine!

We were excited to see crocodiles in the wild and only saw a couple. The outstanding thing about our tour was the ability of our guide to spot baby crocs on the edge! Added interest was the knowledge of our guide regarding all other flora and fauna along the Daintree. Highly recommend.

The friendl guy started the tour and after two minutes we saw the first huge crocadile.His name is Bruce or so:) We thought it is not alive - maybe it is a fake croc - but then he turned his face to us. We saw seven crocodiles in total. It was just amazing. Thanks for that. What a great morning.

We had an amazing afternoon with Bruce's Rivercruises. Our tourguide Ray was the nicest guy! He patiently answered to all our questions and made sure we would see as many crocs as possible! He really loves his job which you can tell by how he makes sure you have the greatest time! We would and will recommend this tour to... More
