We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

Fantastic cruise, Ray was informative and great sense of humour. From the moment we walked into the gift shop we were greeted politely and made feel welcome, Bruce is very personable spent time with us talking about himself and us......did not know who he was until the cruise. Highly recommend this tour. #familyownedandopperated

Really good one hour river cruise with Bruce- he knows all the spots where the crocs can be found. We saw more crocs than we expected to see and his knowledge of the area and of crocs was very good. Nice touch that binoculars are provided for everyone.

Our young family of 5 were fit to burst with excitement at the idea of spotting real life wild crocodiles. 17 days of far North Queensland traveling and still no sightings of real wild crocodiles yet. This trip was sure to guarantee a sighting...?! It didn't let us down. Bruce was the most perfect host in introducing us to 5... More

We went for the lunch time tour that included a pie or sausage roll for lunch. We were lucky enough to have Bruce and his dog Duke for our tour. Bruce is very knowledgable and very passionate about his job. I would highly recommend his tour. We even found 5 big crocs and 3 baby crocs even on a rainy... More

I've been on the tour five times and enjoyed it every time. The wild life is not located every fifty meters but there is enough of it to satisfy the discerning and close enough to the crocs to test your nerve. This weeks trip coincided with a tour group from a local operator. It meant two boats were used. We... More

Thanks for your review,it is the busy season and every seat is important, all the seating is the same. Binoculars are not handed out when it is raining as they end up wet which damages the lens. More

We went on a very rainy day in July. Bruce was awesome! He must love this role and he's so good at it. The tour we saw baby Crocs and mum Crocs. As well as some male crocs. I'd go again. Highly recommended. Genuine experienced and committed host with cute dog too!!

Very cheap, only $15 via bookme Easy to find, enough parkingspots. Free coffee/tea in the lovely courtyard after a warm welcome. Bruce was a great storyteller, took his time to show us around. Left enough space to ask all the questions we had. What I enjoyed the most was that he didn't just do the talk he does everyday for... More

Great river cruise in a covered boat. Binoculars provided for the cruise duration. Saw a few crocodiles and learnt about the environment. Glad it was included on Tony's Tropical Tour B which is highly recommended.

It started off as a wet day and I didn't really know what to expect in terms of croc sightings in Daintree river. Both my wife and I were totally blown away by the experience. Our guide Ray had eyes as sharp as a hawk and spotted crocs, snakes, and bird life from a distance. It was a truly memorable... More
