Murray is the best tour guide you can wish for. He is extremely knowlidgeable, takes his time and does not rush. It’s an absolute pleasure to acompany him on his boat. The best tour in Daintree!

Response from MurrayH206 | Property representative |
I provide 2 hour cruises at dawn and dusk. Cruises depart the public boat ramp at Daintree Village. Cost is $60 per adult, $40 per child. Bookings are required as cruises are by demand and I am not there each day.
