Overview
More
We have been conducting tours on the Daintree River since 1987 and run a family operated, one hour river tour from a private jetty. Our boats are small and personalised for a quality experience and our tours focus on wildlife such as snakes and birds, with an emphasis on crocodile spotting. The tour includes commentary about the area and the mangrove ecosystem. We also provide good quality binoculars and complimentary hot and cold beverages.

Bruce Beltcher's cruise was exceptional. Our guide's ability to spot a croc from afar was uncanny. His knowledge of the flora, fauna and wildlife (crocs included) was impressive. It was worth every dollar and cent.

The guide was respectful of the animals we spotted. The comments were really interesting. The 1 hour cruise was the good timing for that activity. We recommend that company

Thanks for your review. The 12.00pm cruise is great value for families with a free lunch. Our private jetty is located in a mangrove eco system and that is why our crocodile sightings are great.

We visited Bruce's on Thursday and although their 11am tour was booked they squeezed us on to the midday tour. We were taken out by Griffith who was really knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting facts about the river, local plants and of course the...More

Thanks for your great review. Bruce's son Griffith was born here and from a very young age spent his youth fishing and going on tour with his dad. His passion for wildlife is part of his way of life.

Our late morning trip along the river delivered in spades - several crocs and other wildlife spotted, along with an interesting commentary from our young guide. This wasn't a hard sell and we stayed out for longer than advertised, which was nice. The tour party...More

Thank you for your great review. The last cruise of the day is a relaxed one with a wine or beer and some nibbles viewing wildlife at the end of the day.
