This one hour mangrove croc cruise is great value for money - we saw four crocs! The scenery is stunning too, and you get to see where the mangrove meets the ocean. We learned a little bit about crocs along the way too. A must-do while up at Cape Trib.

Trip was ok. Environment was kind of "the same ". We saw some croqs but Kakadu is so much better. Its not worth the high costs

My wife and I did the one hour tour today up coopers creek and it was a great experience. The boat was perfect for viewing and was comfortable for the hour. We saw three crocs, one female sunning herself, another female swimming around and big daddy himself up on the bank. He was seriously huge. Well worth the $30 odd... More

We took a cruise on the creek to spot crocs. We did see some - far off. There were very few birds which is what we were expecting to see. I could have skipped this excursion.

Great little Aussie boat trip run by a local guide. No young over the top tour guides that dont know what they are talking about and dont shut up! Saw 5 crocks and for the price of entry this is well worth your time. Great to meet Ernie and go for a cruise up the river.

My tour took me to this cruise and I am glad he did. While I only saw one young croc, it was still a very nice experience. Part of the explanation for a lack of crocs was the weather because it was rainy but warm. Evidently the crocs hit shore when the water gets cool. They are seeking to sunbathe.... More

We had a great little cruise with Cape Tribulation Wilderness Cruises recently. We hadn't booked in advance and just happened to arrive at the starting point 5 minutes before the next cruise was departing. The tour guide was happy for us to just join in and pay on the spot (AU$32 ea). After a short trek through the mangroves (while... More

We loved this tour and were so excited to see crocodiles in the wild. We were lucky to see a male, a female and a baby in different locations. What I like is that you will be the only boat on the creek making it feel more unique and personal. We really enjoyed Ernie's sense of humour and his knowledge... More

This was a wonderful tour and very informative about the magroves. Allan was the tour guide and he knew a lot about the eco system and how it all worked. We got to see a couple of crocs but the real excitement was seeing the 5m+ male crocodile who had been in a fight with something equally as big. This... More
