We went on the tour today with my 76 year old nan and my four year old twin boys. We were the only ones on the cruise. It was like our own private tour. Our tour guide bill was fabulous and informative and we learnt a lot about the area. His impression of David Attenborough was great. We saw big... More

Despite the heavy downpour this place was one of the few cruising company still open. The staff were very welcoming and our tour guide Adam did a great job educating us about the Daintree river and the various flora and fauna along the bank. It was a very enjoyable experience with free tea and coffee at the end back at... More

A group of us had a short cruise experience with a guide who was exceptionally friendly and knowledgable. He showed us a female crocodile adjacent to her nest in what he said was a most unsuitable location proximate to a main channel and that she had probably picked that location due to her young age and inexperience. The mangrove swamps... More

If you are interested in the rain forest, crocodiles or wild life, there are few places better than the Daintree River Cruise Center. First, the staff is beyond friendly. Shaynee at the front desk and Adam in the boat, made our family cruise a very memorable experience. They also cut their lunch short and started the cruise 30 minutes earlier... More

The staff were beyond friendly and it was lovely to enjoy tea and biscuits in the courtyard before heading off on the cruise. The cruise itself was very tranquil and Jarra knew how to answer any of our questions. We even saw a crocodile, which was amazing! They're very respectful to the region, not disturbing wildlife in order to show... More

Had a great time! Very professionally run whilst at the same time warm and friendly. Our guide knew his stuff and is also clearly passionate about this incredible ecosystem and it's residents. Whilst croc sightings aren't guaranteed (and that's to be expected given they are in their natural environment - much nicer than those horrid baiting shows I've seen videos... More

This morning we had a great boat trip on the daintree river. The skipper is very well informed about everything that lives in and near the river. He has a thorough and deep knowledge of crocodiles. We even spotted a crocodile. Besides the above he is a charming and humorous person and great fun to make a trip with. The... More
