“An excellent cruise to see the wildlife”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Luckily for us we were the only people aboard the cruise and can't understand why people didn't stop to take the time to enjoy the tour. The only thing I can think is that people don't research what they want to do when they go to Kuranda. The guide was brilliant explaining about crocodiles and naming the different birds and fish found in the river. We thought it was brilliant value for money.

“Kuranda River Cruise”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Best money spent all day in Kuranda, guide was very informative and was excellent at explaining to tourists from other countries about what we were looking at. Recommend doing the trip as soon as you get to Kuranda. Plenty of photo opportunities

“The Best $15 You Will Spend in Kuranda!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Absolutely blown away by this amazing river boat tour (08/12/13). Brian, the builder/driver/guide of the boat was a very calm, genuine, man who had an abundance of knowledge of the waters that ran underneath him and the forest that surrounded him. Not only that, he had a sense of humor, and didnt make anything seem boring or drag on. He actually took us for a 1 hour ride instead of 45 minutes which seemed to absolutely fly. It was definitely the best $15 we spent in Kuranda and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE to get on board!

“Must do in Kuranda...”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We were alone when we boarded the boat and thought it would be boring. I had my wife and 4 year old daughter with me.

Mr. DJ, the host of the boat greeted us with all respect and made us feel comfortable. When Mr. DJ started describing the rainforest and surrounding places, we were amazed by his love, respect and knowledge about the place.

We saw lots of different types of fishes, crocodile and birds. Also realized why the place is called tropical rain forest!

Best and most informative experience. Thank you very much Mr. DJ. Honour and Respect.

Happy Travelling.
