Overview
More
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.

Sensational tour with a intelligent and informative guide (Jaiden?). We saw many crocs including the notorious Scar Face. The bird life is amazing and very diverse. One of the best tours we have been on. Highly recommended.
