Another Great Daintree experience. The trip included seeing the crocs and other fish species, but the guide, from his vast knowledge blew us away with the detail of the surrounding bushland, birds and how the whole Eco system operated. I wish I had a book to right down all the information. Thankyou again for the happy attitude of the staff... More

Unfortunately we were not able to see any large crocks but the guide did the best to find some smaller ones, a... More

Do both trips, each trip offers something different. Tour guides know the area and animal life well. Very enteratining even if you don't see a big croc. Bill is a character.

His passion, knowledge and enthusiasm was shared to us in a genuinely friendly manner which surpassed our expectations. Cruising along the beautiful Daintree River & seeing the incredible mangroves was awesome. We saw up close some wonderful crocodiles all from the... More

After a month vacation in Australia, we stumbled across this gem of a boat tour on our last day. Our guide Adam is truly a master of his craft. We got to see crocodiles, birds, AND a python while on the river cruise!! The simplicity of booking, and hopping on the boat, along with the knowledge of the crew, made... More

A 2 hour cruise with a small group in the evening just as the sun was setting. We saw crocodiles, snakes, lizards,kingfishers of different types and many other birds. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He turned it into a great journey

The cruise left about noon for a little over an hour down the Daintree River. The boat is covered with 2 seats on each side for good view. They provide binoculars to help spot the Crocs in the river. We spotted 2 large crocs and 1 young croc falling off a log. We saw Kingfishers, Butterfly's, & Egrets along the... More

Visited Daintree area and went on a river cruise (Matilda 1). Very interesting talk from our skipper (Paul - thanks), learning about the various fauna and flora. We were lucky to see 4 crocodiles of differing ages, from a few weeks to a few years old. We also saw crabs, butterflies and birds. A great hour spent on the river.... More

We had a great cruise along the river seeing two full size and one baby croc. Our guide was very well informed and pointed out many points of interest along the river bank. We were lucky to be in a small group of six people on the tour which made it easier to move around to take in the surroundings... More
