Was still on his holidays, but was kind enough to take us on a river and estuary cruise. Unfortunately there was no crocs or birds around. Was a nice 2 hour cruise, with lots of information on places we passed. Much cooler cruising the waterways.

A group of us enjoyed our BYO picnic on the midday tour while being steered through the calm waters spotting crocodiles in the mangroves. Skipper Mark , talked knowledgeably about Cooktown, mangroves and crocodiles. Highly recommend this good value 2 hour tour!
