About
Very personal (max. 10) nature-based Daintree River tour. Experienced, friendly and science-based information. We think the tour when on a small boat is so much better than tours on the other larger 20, 24, 30-50 seat boats that also tour the river...more

We set off at 5pm and returned around 8pm, totally fulfilled with the adventure on the Daintree River with Dan and Joey. There was an abundance of peace, bird spotting, information, conversation, mangroves, tropical foliage, sunset, fruitbats and multiple crocodiles 🐊🐊🐊
