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

I booked this cruise direct with Ian (Sauce) Worcester from the UK and was really looking forward to it, needless to say I wasn't disappointed. 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...

Sauce gave us a fascinating evening amongst the birds on the Daintree River this evening. He was full of information on birds in particular and on the life of the river in general. He also told us great stories about the area and about his fascinating life in Australia . A highly informative and entertaining trip. Sauce knows the area... More

My husband and I went on the sunset cruise while we were visiting Queensland last August. We were lucky enough to have the boat to ourselves and get a personal tour from Sauce, who is an enthusiastic and talented guide with a great ear and eye for birds and other critters. I know the morning is supposed to be the... More

Sauce is the man. You couldn't wish for a better tour guide at all. He knows all the animals on a first name basis, can show you the bests spots and knows the background facts to make the trip really educational. Add to that the lush wildlife of Daintree with all kinds of birds and reptiles and you've got a... More

Returned to this trip again after 5 years because it was so fantastic the first time around. We were not dissapointed. Unlike many of the other river trips, this one allows you the time to really focus on and learn to understand the river and it's environs at a micro level. While you're still likely to see a croc, the... More

We loved every minute of this trip and saw all the species that we expected to see. Wonderful birds including 4 species of kingfisher as well as close up views of both male and female Saltwater Crocodile. Sauce was and excellent guide and knew much about every species we saw including the plants and history of the area. I would... More

Superb trips up and down the river. I was so impressed, I took a second trip. Amazing sights, so many birds and even a croc sleeping off its recent meal on the banks. Ian’s knowledge of local fauna and flora is awesome. His anecdotes make for a very interesting and humorous trip. I will certainly come again.

Both my wife and I are keen birders and Sauce was recommended by good friends of ours, and we really weren't disappointed. Sauce has great patience, calm temperament and a vast knowledge of birds, as well as other flora and fauna. We were lucky enough to have the whole boat to ourselves, and Sauce as our private guide. After 4... More

We took the morning cruise with Ian. It started out as a foggy cold morning, but luckily the fog lifted quickly as we got on the water. We saw a large variety of birdlife, snakes and some crocodiles, many of which would have been impossible to spot without Ian's sharp eye and familiarity with the area. Definitely worth getting up...
