The captain was knowledgeable and witty. His wife was kind and provided great snacks. The kids loved seeing the crocodiles. Worth the trip

Review of: River Cruise
What a brilliant commentary from the Master of the Lady Douglas subjects covered ranged from Christopher Skase and his early involvement in Port Douglas before his ultimate demise, John Farnham’s boat, early development days including a gold rush and cyclone, and how the sex of crocodiles occurs! Spoken with great humour including the three golden rules to avoid being dinner for a big old salty crocodile. Terrific and memorable thanks.

It was awesome! Well worth the money. You receive a drink first off then nibbles, while on the cruise. Lucky enough to see a crocodile 🐊

Really enjoyed the river cruise. It was informative, relaxed and the crew were great. Drink and snack box included so you don't need to take anything.
