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.

My girlfriend and I had a really great boat trip on the Daintree River with Solar Whisper today. The solar boat is great as it is silent and so you can come quite close to the crocs. Captain David is very knowledgeable about the flora...More

Incredible crocodile boat trip. Martin was brilliantly knowledgable and clearly passionate about his work. We spotted around 7 crocodiles, some large and some small, as well as frogs, snakes and birds. I honestly cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

We did the cruise yesterday and chose this operator to support a family owned business and we also liked the idea of an eco-friendly tour. Most importantly, we wanted to experience those spectacular reptiles in their natural habitat, instead of visiting some farm. Knowing that...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.
