“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had a disappointing cruise. Saw no crocs at all - our skipper warned us in advance that we might not see any. Did see a python resting in a tree obviously (judging by the bulge in the middle) digesting some animal recently swallowed. Heard plenty of explanations about the trees and birds. Well done to the guide for spotting it. But we did want to see crocs and ended up not seeing any. A disappointing hour since our expectations were to see crocs. The guide explained it was due to the warm weather and high tide. If we'd known in advance we'd have given this a miss.

“Crocs, kingfishers and mangroves!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We enjoyed a spectacular river cruise with the Daintree River Cruise Centre. Mick, our boat captain and guide, was incredibly knowledgable about the rainforest and the river wildlife and flora. We went in theirninf which giver you 30 more minutes of cruising time than in the afternoon. We saw real crocs in the wild and there were some baby crocs as well near where mom was. We also saw some fascinating birds including the kingfisher and egret. There were also snakes and crabs, all pointed out by Mick who explained many facts about their habits. There happened to be only 15 of us on the boat and that meant thy we could easily move from seat to seat to get the best photos. The reception at the centre was very friendly and she took time to help us plan the ret of our day. I highly recommend this company for anyone interested in the rainforest.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Saw way more than we expected in our 90 minute cruise. Snakes, birds, and of course crocs of all sizes (even a croc nursery full of baby crocs). Guide was informative and clearly very experienced and knowledgable.

“Mick Casey -best wildlife guide!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

We cruised with Mick and saw lots of great stuff - from crocs to kingfishers. A great way to spend an afternoon and learn something about what makes the tropics tick.
Thoroughly recommend........ask for Mick!
