About Bruce Belcher’s Daintree River Cruises
Bruce Belcher’s Daintree River Cruises offer a one-hour wild life cruise. We are keen bird watchers and have a good eye for crocodiles and tree snakes, with crocodiles being spotted on 98% of trips, particularly in cooler months. We don't provide Daintree bird watching tours however the native bird life in the Daintree is abundant. We operate Daintree tours from our home on the banks of the Daintree River in a secluded wildlife boutique facility. Come and relax in our garden room, listen to the surrounding wildlife and enjoy a complimentary Daintree Tea or coffee before or after your Daintree river tours experience. Peruse our tropical souvenir collection. Meander through our lush tropical garden to our private jetty to board our vessel for a personal guided tour with Bruce’s 32 years’ experience on the Daintree River.

Bruce is a great host, knows where the crocs are. The good experience begins before you get onboard and the hour passes quickly. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Bruce is so informative and the tour was excellent value. Saw amazing crocs and bird life. We went on the midday cruise so a pie, drink after cruise and coffee while we waited included in the price. Best value we've had since arriving in Queensland.

Ray!!!! What a great character/ guide. Knew his stuff and provided a laugh. We saw 3 snakes, about 6 crocs , 2 of which were large 5m dominant males, and plenty of birds. Couldn’t recommend this place more highly. Good job guys.
