Daintree Boatman Wildlife Cruises

A cruise with the Daintree Boatman is the best way to observe the birds and reptiles of the Daintree River. Tours are professionally conducted in a small, comfortable, open vessel which enables a quiet, intimate exploration of the river with close views of target birds and wildlife. The vessel used is a unique 'hybrid' boat, utilising both a regular outboard and a commercial-quality electric motor ideal for disturbing animals less leading to better wildlife observations. Cruises explore the narrow tributaries of the Daintree River, where the big boats can’t go. Maximum of 10 passengers. Boat has comfortable seats. Collapsible bimini roof for use in inclement conditions. Cruises depart from the boat ramp in Daintree Village. Our Available Nature Tours and Prices: Dawn Cruise (2 Hours) - $65 Adult / $40 Child Late Afternoon Cruise (2 Hours) - $65 Adult / $40 Child Private Photographic Cruises (2.5 Hours) - $375 total (1 or 2 passengers, additional passengers $50 each) For more information, please contact us.

It’s my passion to show you the key birds and animals of the Daintree River, including Salwater Crocodile and snakes. Over a two hour period, at either dawn or dusk, we explore the Daintree River and her tributaries to examine the flora, fauna and ecology of this wonderful World Heritage area.
