Overview
Personalisation – Our groups are small, amplifying the quality of our nature and wildlife interaction. Eco-friendly – We cruise with a solar electric boat operator. The vessel is quiet and a completely clean and green machine. Afternoon advantages – We are heading IN to the National Park when other operators are heading OUT! Our late finish affords us peaceful trails and empty beaches Observe what we casually call, the ‘shift swap’. Animals that are active during the day become more excitable at dusk, right as the nocturnal creatures come out to play! Nocturnal component – Very few visitors to the area have the option to go into the “Oldest continually growing rainforest in the world, at night!”

My heart smiles to read this review Melinda :) We designed the Daintree Afternoon tour 2 years ago for those exact reasons, more wildlife opportunities, quiet boardwalks, more interaction with the region. I am so thrilled you had a great tour with Kelvin and thank you for supporting a small group tour operator and family business. Happy travels!

An awesome trip in small groups that was personalized for what we wanted to see. We travelled in comfort with a very informative guide. A highlight was the night animal spotting. Well worth the tour, which is different from so many of the other tours in Far North Queensland.
