Daintree River Sunset Cruise

Port Douglas, Queensland

The perfect way to finish your Daintree Rainforest experience. Floating on the water, enjoying the late afternoon light, watching wildlife foraging before sunset, there are few better places to be than out on the Daintree River. Highly sought-after birds (kingfishers, herons, frogmouth, flycatchers) as well as crocodiles and snakes are seen on most cruises. Cruises cater for a maximum of just 10 passengers and are customised to the interests of the passengers. The boat used is a unique ‘hybrid’ vessel utilising both a regular outboard and an incredible electric motor to aid wildlife viewing. Late afternoon cruises give an opportunity to see the river in lovely light, sometimes with the setting sun colouring the sky, often with a multitude of egrets flying home to roost for the night.
