A must do whilst in the Daintree. I recommend the evening/night tour! Dan runs all the tours personally and is friendly, informative, accommodating and a fountain of knowledge on the local flora and fauna.

Had the pleasure of cruising with Dan on a private tour in late January. We had limited time in Port Douglas, and I liked that Dan was willing to accommodate our schedule with a 2-hour tour starting 90-minutes before sunset. The river at that time...More

Great evening out with Dan, who is incredibly intelligent and knowledgable. The fruit bats coming out to feed at sunset was a spectacle, and Dan managed to spotlight multiple crocs after dark. It was the highlight of our trip!
