Overview
More
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.

Thank you for your informative review,we are moving into great crocodile spotting as the water is getting cooler so these cold blooded creatures have to bask in the sun.Low tides is the best time to see them lying on the river banks.
