In 2010 Daintree River Experience was proud to be part of the Oprah's Ultimate Australia Adventure

When explorer George Dalrymple discovered the Daintree River in 1873, he described it as “the finest river scenery in the colony”.

You too can experience this beauty through the eyes and expertise of your driver/guide - all locals, with a real passion for this amazing natural wonderland.


About us

In addition to our regular Sunrise and Sunset cruises, we offer tailor-made cruises for all occasions. Talk to us about taking you to some of the seldom-visited places on the river.

Perhaps upstream through rolling farmland interspersed with creeks which cut through patches of dense rainforest. Maybe a trip towards the mouth of the River to look for Beach Stone Curlew, Collared Kingfisher, Mangrove Robin or shorebirds on sand-flats at low tide. Seasonally large colonies of roosting Splectacled and/or little Red Flying Foxes can be found and often, crocodiles inhabiting the quieter reaches of the mangrove systems near the river mouth.

Are you arranging a tour for keen birdwatchers or photographers, or just wanting a boat all to yourself to follow one particular species? Don't hesitate to let us know what we can do for you.
