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

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
