The cruises took 2-2.5 what is pretty long for the price of 75 AUD each. The guide has spare binoculars and blankets on the boat. We were taken to many promising bird spots or stopped spontaneously when seeing a bird or other animals. He fed us with many background information and is really good in identifying birds. Seeing the sunset... More

Source was very knowledgeable and passionate about providing an educational tour. We saw a crocodile in the water even though the high tide made it less of a chance to see. We also spotted pythons in trees, many birds including owls and bird nests plus heaps of different trees and flowers. We got to eat a fresh wild cherry too.... More

Was fortunate enough to enjoy a lovely cruise with Sauce. He was a great guide and very enthusiastic about his job. The scenery and wildlife was amazing. Somehow it was only me and my partner on the boat so it felt like our very own private tour which made it even better. Cannot recommend anymore. We look forward to another... More

I have been meaning to rate this for years but only got a 'trip advisor' account a few days ago... we did this trip about 3.5 years ago now, and I'm not into birds but my husband very much is...! Sauce is probably the best guide we have ever had. A bird lover and photographer who was generous enough to... More

Sauce is an absolute treasure. His knowledge of the Daintree is extensive. Our small group experienced the wonders this amazing place has to offer. Sauce knew the river so well he was able to take us to see pythons curled up in trees and where Tawny Frogmouths were nesting. Despite the tide being high, we were even able to see... More

When searching online for a Daintree river experience, I had only found large touristy boats that seem to hold about 30 people, so I didn't book anything. Then the staff at our hotel Daintree Eco Lodge offered to book for us and they hooked us up with this gem. We loved the fact that only 8 people can sit in... More

Ian is such a knowlegeable and enthusiastic guide. He loves what he does and you feel that! We did both: the afternoon and the morning tour. It was different, but each tour was amazing. Would definitely do it again. We saw crocodiles, snakes and so many different birds. The boat is so comfortable and Ian also a keen photographer. You... More

This small group tour conducted by Sauce Worcester is outstanding. Whatever level of knowledge you are at, he has the abililty expand it. His personal years of experience seem endless. Each day and season seem different and you will soon be booking another trip. This was my third visit to Daintree Village and always with Sauce. Early morning offers a... More

Even before this experience began Ian 'Sauce' Worchester was very helpful. I was trying to organise a booking but had to keep changing it due to accommodation changes. Ian was patient and accommodating. As for the actual river cruise it was just superb. Up nice and early, the first boat to leave. It only seats 8 so it does not... More

This is our second year in a row that we have taken a Wild Watch cruise with Sauce, it was his knowledge, experience and ability to pass this on to his clients that drew us back. The morning cruise was full with an assortment of tourists, sightseers, birders and amateur photographers. The boat is fitted out so you can all... More
