Excellent tour for birds and general natural history. Not a sensationalised croc tour - which I abhor. The guide , Sauce ,caters to photographers and knows his birds after spending many years around them. Rain coats are provided and we found the tour to be informative and worthwhile. Don`t bother booking if you want the over-hyped " danger crocodile "... More

Had a wonderful river cruise and really enjoyed the information of wildlife in, and on the river. Able to taste flowers, see snakes and one croc, which is excellent for this time of year. Great people taking the tours, so friendly and easy to chat to.

"Sauce" is an excellent naturalist and knows all the birds. It rained when we were on the river and Sauce was super prepared. The boat has a canopy and he has ponchos for the guests to wear. He found us Papuan Frogmouths and Shining Flycatchers both lifers for my wife and I. He is very knowledgeable about photography and put... More

This is the second time we have been out with "Sauce". We have him our priority birds that we wanted to see and he delivered. He has an excellent and in depth knowledge of the river and its inhabitants. He freely shares this knowledge in a comfortable and relaxed manner.

Doing a morning river trip with "Sauce" was highly recommended to us, and he lived up to his reputation. We got great birds and had a wonderful time! We saw Black Bittern, Great-billed Heron, Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher and others. We also highly recommend a trip with this knowledgeable and personable gentleman.

A delightful two and a half hours on the Daintree River and a couple of subsidiary creeks. The highlights for us were the tree full of fat, sleeping, Amethystine Pythons (they feast each night on the 100's of Egrets that come and roost in a neighbouring, fallen tree), a number of nesting Papuan Frogmouths and a locally rare pink flowering...

Our early morning boat trip with Sauce was very enjoyable. An experienced and pleasant ornithologist that explains things in an understandable way even to peolpe who are not very familiar with birds.

We wanted to explore the Daintree river for photos rather than crocs and this trip was perfect. An early start at 6am provided excellent bird viewing as the river woke up, and was worth the effort. The highlight was the Azure Kingfisher in all his colourful glory and a breeding pair of large billed herons which was spectacular to see... More

Sauce our guide was fantastic, we saw many new birds that we hadn't seen before in their natural habitat. He knew exactly where to find them. The scenery was absolutely stunning and it was such a peaceful trip. He saved the best surprise to last just as the sun was setting. I would thoroughly recommend a trip with sauce.
