our experienced interpretive guide is accustomed to the nuances of the river, rain-forest and mangroves and can spot an incredible variety of wildlife that you would not necessarily see on your own. The boat is fitted with the unique "CROC CAM" to help show well camouflaged wildlife.

We have about a 99% success rate with spotting crocodiles. The small ones are very reliable but the big ones come and go. Even when they are around they can hold their breath for several hours! Successful spotting depends on many factors, low tide is usually better as there more beaches and less water to hide in.

The weather plays a part, crocs are happy when they are warm so if the water is cold they get out, if the water or the sun is very warm, they stay in but are more active. The Daintree River is a natural wild environment and we cannot guarantee wildlife, but we usually see something interesting and the scenery is always stunning.

Travstar Hot Tip:
The best time to spot Crocs is 2 Hours before low tide.

Really enjoyed today's tour! , David has so much knowledge and passion for the river and the ladies are so welcoming. It's a bonus to see all of the other wildlife not just the amazing crocodiles. Being a local i brought along some of my guests, and they definitely enjoyed themselves too! I will definatly be back in my spare time to see Scarface and Lizzies cute little babies!

Just finished the 9:30 tour and it was incredible - we saw a huge male (Scarface) and lots of Lizzie’s little babies that are less than 2 weeks old! Also saw a lovely tree snake and tree frog. Tea, coffee and biscuits before we set off, super friendly staff and a wonderfully passionate and informative guide. Couldn’t fault a thing, Dougie the dog is also a wonderful boat companion. One of the best tours we’ve done on our lap around Australia, would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Daintree river, so reasonably priced and very educational. Thank you for a wonderful morning!
