Overview

Crocodile Express operate from 2 locations on the beautiful Daintree River. The "Upper Daintree Cruise" departs from Daintree Village. Our office and check-in are located in Daintree Tourist Information Centre in the Village centre. "Lower Daintree Cruise" departs from Daintree Gateway, 300 meters before the Daintree Ferry Crossing, look for the big croc head to check-in. Both cruises are different in landscape and environment, upper Daintree cruise starts from Daintree Village going through rainforest and country farming pastures with the lower Daintree cruise goes past rainforest and mangroves. Crocodiles, abundant birdlife and reptile can be seen on both cruises. Take one cruise and take the second free ! You are welcome to come back as many times as you like. Go to our website for conditions. There is no better value wildlife cruise in tropical Queensland.

Our girls enjoyed the first tour so much we went into Daintree village and did a second trip. The tour was very informative and we saw a few crocodiles and a tree snake. Plenty of photo opportunities along the way.

We were lucky enough to spot a croc on out trip but the view cruising down the river is amazing also. Well worth it even if you don't see a croc its a very beautiful place.
