Take a cruise through a world lost in time and experience the hidden wonders of the ancient Daintree waterways as they wind their millennial paths through the World Heritage-listed tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland. Who knows, you might just come face to face with a beady-eyed local.
Dense rainforest canopies and mountain views await the adventurous on this must-do Daintree River experience. With cruises departing six times daily from the Daintree Village jetty, you will get up close to nature and enjoy the magnificent Wet Tropics World Heritage in comfort. An especially popular cruise for bird watchers, you will wind your way through dense rainforest and mangroves, taking in spectacular views of Thornton Peak and watching out for exotic wading birds fossicking for tasty feed amongst the exposed mudflaps. Meanwhile, majestic Brahminy Kites look regally down from their perches high above as you dart through the shallows. You’ll see a vast array of waterlife as you get up close and personal with all the locals including the most awe-inspiring of all, the prominent resident Salt Water Crocodiles basking themselves in the sun or gliding silently through the reeds.
Saltwater crocodiles, birdlife, reptiles and butterflies are just some of the wildlife you will encounter on this trip, with your Eco River Tour Guide, local naturalists with a keen interest in the local environment and passion for flora and fauna of the Daintree River systems, providing engaging and highly informative commentary during the trip. Crocodile Express guides communicate with each other by radio to give you the best opportunity for wildlife sightings along the river. Your tour vessel is stable and spacious, allowing you and all other passengers to get up close and personal with the wildlife as you move around the boat to get the best photos. And best of all, when you book one cruise you will get a bonus cruise pass to cruise again, free on any scheduled departures from either location for up to 30 days!
Guide and assistance dogs are permitted. Other dogs may be permitted at the discretion of the boat crew member on the day. Issues may occur if some passengers on board express they fear animals. Barking dogs are not permitted due to the discomfort of other travellers and disturbing wildlife.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
