We went on this cruise hoping to see a Croc and we were not disappointed! We saw 7 crocs, ranging from babies (under 1m) to some mature females (2-3m) on the banks of Cooper Creek. The tour was a great amount of time for kids...More

This was a 1 hour leisurely cruise up the Cape Tribulation Section of Daintree National Park. We saw and got pictures of several crocodiles. The Capitan/Guide was knowledgeable of the area and wild life.

Disappointing. Given how well the business owner understands the natural rhythms of Coopers Creek, it would make sense to run the excursions at times best suited for viewing crocodiles rather than fixed times. Low energy engagement with his customers. Did learn that crocs most likely...More

The guide had a great sense of humour and was very knowledgeable of the cape tribulation area and the cooper's creek eco system. We saw 2 female crocs and lots of birds. The scenery was great!
