My boyfriend and I had an absolutely awesome time on the evening spotlighting tour with Dan. He was clearly very knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife (he published a book about it, which we purchased at the end of the tour) and was really good at making the trip an interactive experience. He would stop and turn the boat around when anyone spotted something interesting, which made the trip feel like a real adventure. We saw many fascinating creatures, including a young crocodile, a cormorant, a darter, and many others. Perhaps one of the best testaments to how great this tour is that we're still telling friends about the things we learned on the trip, 4 weeks after it happened.
We also did a bushwalk tour in the area (with Pete Baxendell 's Heritage & Interpretive Tours) and decided that Dan's trip was an essential component of our Daintree trip, so if you're deciding between a bushwalk and a river tour, do both!
