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

We took the dawn cruise Ian "Sauce" Worcester with a view to seeing as many bird species as possible and were not disappointed. Sauce was very knowledgeable and skilled at getting the best possible views of the birds we encountered.

Some tours are better than others, but this one with Ian 'Sauce' Worcester on the beautiful Daintree River in Far North Queensland is fabulous. Ian is so enthusiastic and knowledgable: his goal is that you will love the river as much as he does. He showed us green tree snakes, baby crocodiles, kingfishers, nesting double-eyed fig parrots, a rare great-billed... More

We were privileged to spend an afternoon on the river with "Sauce". It was absolutely amazing. Sauce was a fount of knowledge - plants, animals, traditions - which he offered in an engaging manner and we saw so much that we would never have seen without him. His enthusiasm and wish to know more were totally infectious and time flew... More

We took this trip direct with "Sauce", as he is known. It started at 6am and finished over two hours later having seen lots of species of birds. He gave us lots of interesting information about the river and creeks that we visited and showed us many birds nests. It was a beautiful morning and the time passed so quickly.... More

We met Sauce at Daintree Village jetty at 06:00hrs, there were 4 in our group and another couple staying at the same accommodation as us. We were all mostly interested in the bird life, within...
