Nice jaunt down the estuary . Good commentary about the flora and fauna . Just a shame the service was so unfriendly and the nibbles not worth it . Take an apple and hopefully see an evasive crocodile

What a delight this trip was. For $35pp we had 1.5 hours of calm cruising, a welcome drink, snacks and loads of wildlife including birds, crocodiles and mud skippers. The hosts were warm, friendly and knowledgeable. If you are in Port Douglas get around it.

Excellent value for money on the Sunset Cruise; well paced, relaxing and organised, knowledgeable guide and friendly. Generous nibbles. Didn’t see any crocs but the guide was so upbeat and informed we didn’t care (there was so much more to learn).

Sorry for late reply. I can't remember what we paid, but the other replies all seem to be the same ($35) so I guess that is right.
