Overview

1 hour Daintree River wildlife cruise on a solar electric boat, so it is nice and quiet and there are no petrol fumes or exhaust and good for getting close to the wildlife. We are the only boat with "Croc Cam"; a digital video with a very good zoom for showing hard to see animals on a big screen. Wildlife includes Salt Water Crocodiles, snakes, frogs, and birds and also interpretation of the mangrove environment.

Our family had a great river trip with Solar Whisper this morning and saw about 4 crocodiles, a beautiful kingfisher and a python up in a tree. Very friendly and great fun.

Great tour and knowledge of the Daintree River. The best part is the boat is so quiet and you can really hear the sounds of nature. Shame only spotted 1 crocodile and a baby but just the time of the year. Definitely worth doing while...More

The cooler months are better. The crocodiles will leave the water to warm themselves. The hotter months the water is warm so they don't need to soak up the sun.
