The price of the ticket includes 2 x two hour cruises - the Upper freshwater and the Lower saltwater sections of the river. Both tour guides were very knowledgeable and fun. We saw birds, snakes and crocodiles on both cruises.

Fantastic morning on the river being guided to see a bunch of lifers in comfort by Sauce Worcester. Boat allows close approach for superb viewing. Highly recommended.

We were on Sauce's morning tour and really enjoyed our time. It was only the two of us, but we set sail nevertheless and had the privilege of a very personal tour. We saw many wonderful birds, most of which we would never have noticed without our skilled guide and even spotted a crocodile:) Totally worth the money and getting... More

We had an rainy early morning tour with Ian. Not many birds were to be found. All of his regular go to spots were silent. Tours of this type are always hit and miss. Ian is very professional and tried really hard to show us things. I could tell he was disappointed with what he was able to show us.... More

We went on a private afternoon tour with "Sauce". Had been on a wildlife tour on the daintree a few years previous but this was truly a unique experience. Sauce's knowledge of the river and passion for wildlife is incredible, spotting things from a distance that even with a zoom lens were barely visible. The explanations of the history of... More

We got up early to join the Daintree River Wild Watch cruise and it was certainly well worth it. Ian Worcester or Sauce as he is known, is an extremely knowledgeable and wonderful gentleman. He took us on a boat trip to various locations up and down the river in search of various species of wildlife. He is able to... More

A cool, misty early morning cruise on the Daintree is a must-do. 'Sauce', our guide, was the expert's expert on all things Daintree. He could identify the birds from their calls and had known some of the migrating birds for many seasons. He made difficult photographic opportunities easy, including the Great Billed Heron and Papuan Frogmouths.

We had the best time with Sauce as our guide when we did the sunset cruise. He knows where to look for the various birds & their nests, as well as the hiding spots for the crocodiles. He was so patient as we tried to take as many photos as possible, also getting his camera out for new pics for... More
