The entire experience was informative, enjoyable and entertaining. The service was fantastic, pickup and drop off, they provided a variety of BBQ meats for lunch to suit everyone’s taste and needs. Afternoon tea included Billy Tea and a choice of plain or fruit damper.
I would recommend this highly, and is suitable for all age groups. A MUST do activity!!!

A lovely day spent out on the Proserpine River and surrounds. Our guides Tom and Mark was extremely knowledgeable about the crocs and other flora and fauna. Can definitely recommend as an activity around Airlie Beach.

The tour guide was very informative and made every effort to provide the guests with the best opportunities to view the crocodiles. He was also very accommodating with the families with young kids onboard. We saw many crocodiles, from the very small (this year's hatchlings) to the the very large (4.5m) in their natural habitat, with no overt provocation or feeding of the animals, The morning tea of billy tea and damper was excellent, as was the bbq lunch. Overall this was a memorable experience - one not be missed!

Was really impressed with this trip. Coming from the big smoke of Brisbane was totally unaware that crocs can be found as far down as The Mary River, food for thought if I ever throw a line there again.
The guide was massively knowledgeable and gave us all lots of information about crocs as well as knowing each crocs on a near personal level with them all being named.
The guide knew where each animal was located within reason (they do move around) then stopped for ample photo and video I
Opportunities.
This time of year we see plenty of females around with their new offspring as well as the big blokes, two of which we were lucky enough to see have a head to head of territory, rare to see.
The other guide cooked a brilliant bbq lunch with something for everyone and seconds available for the more hungry in the group.

After this it was a hour trip across the swamp areas with a chat about local wildlife and plant life, see some bird, a bit about the local cattle and how they survive in this area and some of the invasive animals such as wild boar.

After this it was back to camp for fresh billy tea and damper, very nice and very filling.

A great day out and although I have done it now, I would prob do it again as it was very enjoyable.

The entire day was well
Organised from pick up to delivery back to our accommodation. The staff are amazing, friendly, knowledgeable, interesting and persisted until they gave us every opportunity to see beautiful crocs in the wild. It was truly sensational. We saw a large 4.5m croc slide into the water and the trip culminated in a male and female interaction within 4 metres of the boat. Awesome. Mark, Ian and Steve really looked after us. Thank you.
Lunch was also great and plenty of it. Thanks again. Truly a great experience to see large crocs in their natural world. (And safe….)

We enjoyed the informative tractor ride. Crocs were hiding a bit due to the weather but we were pleased we had the option to move our day so we would not miss out due to bad weather coming. Boys did a great job with damper and lunch

As the tide was low we started with the tractor ride which was really interesting. Coming from the UK we loved seeing the different wildlife and birds, and the 'licking the ant's bum' was a fun touch. Tom was so enthusiastic and knowledgable. He kept us engaged through the whole tour. Then we had Billy tea and damper, which was so welcome and delicious. We watched them put the boat into the water and set off on the river part of the tour. Again, it was lovely seeing the Australian birdlife as well as some impressive crocs. 'Lenny' was the highlight as well as some babies and mothers. I am surprised at the criticisms of Mark as he was great. He did ask people to be quiet and keep questions for later, but given the inherant dangers and the he is responsible for making sure everyone is safe, I was happy to comply. And someone says, 'it was too safe'...yikes, did you expect to paddle with a croc?? Lunch was also really welcome and delicious with plenty to go round, and even have seconds. A highlight of our 4 week visit to Australia.

Pick up from accomodation was handy but I was hoping for a bit of talking about the area even if pre- recorded. Totally safe, almost too safe for this thrill seeker. The weather made it a little hard to see the crocs but saw lots of babies and a few. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and spoke well. I liked the dad jokes and the dead pan humour.
At some points, I got so sleepybut it might have been going for seconds with the great bbq lunch.
Was equally eaten my weight by mozzies and the aeroguard sprays where in good supply, it did make my eyes water and cough.
Probably not recommend to younger kids as they seemed a bit miserable. The proserpine river must be pretty in good weather. I liked hearing about the medicinal properties of shrubs and trees but probably too large a group to really appreciate it. I would have much preferred going foraging.
I enjoyed watching our boat be put in the water. We had random encounters with horses and a local trespassing.
I was a solo traveller and felt ok with being the only one there. Maybe an hour too long. 10-3

It was excellent. Well organised, the tour operator was very knowledgeable and happy to explain things. The food cooked was fantastic and plentiful. All in all a fantastic day. Unfortunately the weather didn’t play the game and it rained- but the people working there did everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend.
