Daintree Boatman Nature Tours provides premium small-group wildlife cruises, with a special focus on highly sought-after birds, crocs & snakes, along with insight into the ecology of the river.
Two hour public cruises are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon whilst birds are at their most active and the river is at it's most scenic. The vessel has comfortable seats and a maximum of 10 passengers. The vessel used is a unique 'hybrid', utilising a regular outboard and an incredible electric engine powered by a 24V lithium battery. The electric engine reduces wildlife disturbance leading to better wildlife observations.
Private cruises, at reasonable rates, are available for groups or individuals.
This cruise is owned and operated by Murray Hunt, a professional guide with experience at some of the great locations around Australasia including Uluru, Kakadu and Fiordland. This business is currently TripAdvisor's top-ranked Daintree River cruise and a member of TripAdvisor's Hall of Fame.
Cruises depart from the public boat ramp at Daintree Village. Bookings essential.
