DESCRIPTION

Dawn cruises provide the best conditions to see the river at its most stunning, as well as the greatest chance to see wildlife of the Daintree River. Cruises are 2 hours in duration, and focus on highly sought-after birds, crocs and snakes, along with insight into the ecology of the mighty Daintree. Cruises are limited to a maximum of 10 passengers to enable a personalised experience with cruises customised to the viewing hopes of passengers. 

The vessel used is a unique ‘hybrid’, utilising a regular outboard and an incredible electric engine powered by a portable 24V lithium battery. The electric motor reduces wildlife disturbance leading to better wildlife observations. 

Referred to in many ‘birding’ reference books, this famous cruise has been in operation for more than 20 years. Key target species include Azure Kingfisher, Little Kingfisher, Papuan Frogmouth, Great-billed Heron, Saltwater Crocodile, Green Tree Snake, Water Dragon and butterflies. 

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.

In these uncertain times, payment is NOT required for advance bookings beyond 7 days. For advance bookings, a payment request will be emailed a week before the cruise date. For bookings within 7 days of the cruise date, full payment is required.
