Stumbled across the cruise by accident waiting for the Skyrail, but was well worth the few dollars to go. The driver/guide was well informed and entertaining, and the vista was lovely. Definitely recommend.

Really nice trip with a very informative guide. This is a very natural experience, not commercial and a much nicer way to see some of the local wildlife. We saw small freshwater crocodiles and many turtles up very close.

went on this trip only by chance as we couldn't get on the train, only the skyrail , so waiting for the skyrail and looking at the town of Kuranda we crossed over the trainline and saw the sign for the river boat cruise and were glad we did ! The boat owner was very informative , friendly and knowledgeable .. for $15 we saw freshwater crocodiles, fed the turtles and the fish and saw lots of birds . Very calming and interesting , highly recommended to spend some time after or before looking at the markets.

This cruise is excellent and well worth going on. The guide was wonderful. He even let us go on the cruise and see a crocodile even though I had mis-read the times and he had actually finished for the day. This is first class customer service. He made our day and we are very grateful. The scenery of course is outstanding and we recommend this trip to anyone heading up to the Cairns region. The fee for the 45 minutes is only $15 for adults, $7 for kids and $37 for a family - very, very reasonable.

We were walking through this wonderful Kuranda village in cairns and we noticed a sign riverboat cruise,it was just behind the train station that travels up and around Barron falls, we were to early for the train and decided to do the cruise, our guide was a real character and full of information about the rainforest, the boat took us up close to view freshwater crocs and we got to view the feeding of turtles, archer and sooty grunter fish from the boat, the 45 minute tour cost us 15 dollars each and was worth every cent we loved it, oh and the tour guide likes it when you make big appreciation sounds at the end of each bit of information, so funny !!!!!!!
