Beautiful morning out on the water. Spotted 2 crocs!

Received a delicious coffee on arrival. Cruise left on time. Only 6 people in total for our 9:30am cruise. Friendly staff at both the counter and the boat. Tide was up, so we found only one larger crocodile and one baby one. Was interesting to hear how conditions had impacted the area.

Excellent tour. We were able to see several crocodiles.

Our tour guide was excellent and had a very keen eye to be able to spot not just the crocs but other wildlife too, especially the tree python and the tree snake! A bonus was seeing the ferry cross the Daintree. It was a very enjoyable trip on a larger more comfortable boat than I’d expected.

Really great experience, great family-run business :)

The river cruise was really good, we got to see both crocodiles and some snakes which was great. All of the staff there are really nice and friendly (and there was a dog to say hello to which was a nice bonus), overall really worth it, especially for the price :)
