About Dan Irby's Mangrove Adventures
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. (Doing usual their usual one-hour croc-spotting tours while sitting shoulder to shoulder on hard bench seats). (On some boats the people are all sitting facing toward the inside of the boat). We go for longer tours (minimum two hours) and go places where many boats can't go because they are limited by time and their larger boat sizes. We get to see many magical places that they they can't. Several times over the years people have told me that their Mangrove Adventures tour was the highlight of their Australian vacation. "The Nightwatchman" is a small 6 metre, open-topped, punt with 10 comfortable swivel seats. Powered by quiet 60 hp 4-stroke outboard motor. And we don't offer any other marketing gimmicks other just passion and careing.

Dan and Jhoey were awesome. We saw two tree snakes, six crocodiles, orchid blooms and countless birds. Dan took the time to get right up on the crocodiles. At one point we were just feet from the alpha male

We did the afternoon tour and it was brilliant. Dan and Jhoey were incredibly friendly and answered every single one of our questions. They are both passionate and very knowledgeable about the river and its ecosystem. I highly recommend this tour and would happily go again.

Went for a cruise on a hot afternoon, when the nature's snoozing too under the hot sun. Dan and his wife showed us birds nesting over the river, tree frog minding it's own business and we even managed to see a crocodile resting on land as well. Also the athmosphere on the river was peaceful and enjoyable on its own. The boat doesn't have roof, so it's a good idea to take decent protection against the sun. Although the trees cover you quite good deeper down by the river, it still takes some time to get there and that time you're exposed to direct sunlight. The cruise was pleasant and Dan so knowledgeable with his wife, so had a marvellous experience.
