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

We went for 2 trips with Ian - and both were fantastic. The morning cruise saw a lot of bird life. Ian's boat is the perfect set up for bird watching with a limit of 9 passengers and the seat swivel. Everyone gets to set on the side of the boat so you always have an uninhibited view of the... More

"Sauce" was a really interesting guide to the birds we saw. Being from England it was wonderful to see the many varieties of birds native to Queensland! We were with a small group of Australians who were all good company! It was an early start for us - but well worth getting up for!

A wonderful river boat ride with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide! We saw not only beautiful and breathtaking nature, but also crocodiles and lots of different birds we had never seen before. Really recommend this as a way to see the animals in their natural habitat!

The boat has heaps of room and very practical comfortable seats.There is a removable canopy that is great for the sun and rain Sauce removed it and put... More

We started early in the morning- with a misty glaze and the only boat on the water, it felt like we were on the edge of the earth! The boat itself was small and quiet which allowed us to get right up close to many of the birds. The guide felt it was a fairly quiet morning however we saw... More

The trip was wonderful. We were so excited to be up at dawn-- the river and rainforest were enchanting in beautiful light and mist. Sauce was the perfect guide, we felt like we got the most experienced birder to give us a private trip around an area he knew in and out. Beautiful birds and scenery. Thanks for a great... More

We got up close to within 2m of azure kingfisher and spotted many other birds. Saw one croc but not disappointed as we were mainly interested in birdlife on this day. Sauce has a wealth of ecological information to share and does so in a natural down to earth way.

A wonderful early morning boat cruise that showed us a significant amount of wildlife. Sauce was a great guide who ensured that we had fantastic views of a variety of birds and reptiles. The highlights were Great-billed Heron, Papuan Frogmouth, Green Tree-Snake and Gould's Bronze-Cuckoo!
