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.

I am so glad I stumbled upon Bruce Belcher’s Daintree rivers cruises when I did a google search. The staff were so helpful in the lead up as I had questions about the weather. We got there earlier than the booked time and they happened to have a few spots remaining for the earlier session so they happily accommodated us on that ride. We were lucky to have the very man Bruce himself as our guide and what a great guide he was. He provided such an informative, friendly and humour ride. Most of all as a parent, I appreciate how he ensured the kids were involved and could see the crocs, birds etc. There were 3 adults and 2 young kids. We all had a great time! I highly recommend Bruce and his team’s river cruise. Thank you.

Excellent experience! From check in, to getting our lunch given to us at the end. The tour guide (Ray, along with his friendly dog, Duke) knew exactly where to go and had a sharp eye for spotting crocs and other wildlife! We saw at least 5 large crocodiles, as well as a few babies. Would highly recommend. NB: other cruises tended to go the other way down the river and apparently had no luck whatsoever - so do yourself a favour and book with Belcher's!
