About Daintree Boatman Nature Tours
Daintree Boatman Nature Tours provides small-group, wildlife cruises for close views of highly sought-after birds, snakes and crocodiles on the mighty Daintree River. Two hour cruises ($65 adult, $40 child) are provided at dawn and dusk whilst birds are at their most active and the river is at its most scenic. Cruises cater for a maximum of just 10 passengers and are customised to the interests of the passengers. The boat used is a unique 'hybrid' vessel utilising both a regular outboard and a commercial-quality electric motor which enables less disturbance of wildlife and better wildlife viewing. Cruises depart from the Daintree Village boat ramp. Private cruises are available for those with a specific interest such as wildlife photography.

After a very long day travelling the sunset cruise was a welcome reward. Beautiful, serene and extremely interesting. Murray made sure everyone's pet interests were considered and his passion for the place was an obvious delight. Thanks for a great couple of hours

Highly recommend this tour! Murray, the Boatman, is extremely knowledgeable and did a fabulous job steering us down the river while finding an incredible range of the reptile, bird and botanical life that this place is rightfully famous for. It was a really special experience - friendly, informative, rich in natural beauty, well paced and personalised. A highlight of our trip.

We had a wonderful experience on our Daintree River boat tour with Murray. Saw crocs including a huge one, tree snakes and an abundance of bird life including the rarely seen Great-billed Heron. Murray is incredibly personable and has an extensive knowledge of the rivers wildlife and ecosystem. If you want a relaxed and informative tour of the river with a small group this is the tour for you. No crowds, microphones and noisy tourists. A true nature lovers experience. Thanks Murray!

We had a fantastic tour with Murray - the highlight of our trip to FNQ. Murray was very knowledgeable, responsive and thoughtful; he was also very kind with our young boys. It's something we'll remember (very positively) for a long time.

Thank you. The world is a bit silly at the moment with serious unknown impacts on businesses and families, so I particularly thank you for your kind review at this time.
