Attraction details
Owner description: We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

Our guide for the cruise was Bruce's son. He was a thoroughly likeable, informative and enthusiastic young man. He showed us three crocodiles on the cruise, and also pointed out various birds. then came the highlight of the trip. We were returning to base, when I spotted what looked like a big log floating down river. On closer inspection I saw the tail of a croc behind it. I shouted to Belcher Junior that I had seen something, and he steered the boat towards it. He soon confirmed that the "log" was in fact a dead cow that the crocodile was guiding down river to it's hiding place. He said it was the "Spot of the Year". An amazing trip.

We took the cruise as a family of 4 and all of us enjoyed it. Bruce has a keen eye to spot all the wildlife and a vast knowledge of the area. This is a well run local business that is well worth the time and money.

We had a reasonable trip only saw two small crocodiles , we were on and off the boat in an hour so a bit rushed . Long trek to get to the boat so if your mobility is limited be aware.

My family of four, elder teenagers, took a trip with Bruce late one afternoon just before Christmas. We had a great time and could easily have spent longer on the trip. The whole team were very friendly from arrival and a nice cup of coffee to through to a cold beer for the trip.
The trip wad fun as well as informative.
