Overview

1 hour Daintree River wildlife and crocodile cruise on the only solar electric boat on the Daintree river. The boat it is nice and quiet and there are no petrol fumes or exhaust , it is also good for getting close to the wildlife without disturbing it. We aim to treat this fragile ecosystem with respect and have minimal impact, our boat does not create a wake so we do not erode the mangroves. We are the only boat with "Croc Cam"; a digital video with a very good zoom for showing hard to see animals on a big screen. Wildlife includes Salt Water Crocodiles, snakes, frogs, and birds and also interpretation of the mangrove environment. The buisness is locally family owned and operated and has been going for 16 years. We offer a unique experience with minimal impact see, hear and smell nature at its best nature eco experience. We also offer longer two , three hour cruises by bookings only, maximum 10 people great for photography for those that want a longer more personalised tour.

We had a lovely trip on the Daintree, guided by David. Very informative, and an amazing spotter of wildlife. Plenty of crocs but also other things too. Very worthwhile.

The cooler months are better. The crocodiles will leave the water to warm themselves. The hotter months the water is warm so they don't need to soak up the sun.
