Daintree Boatman Wildlife Cruises
Daintree Boatman Wildlife Cruises is a small tour business, owned and operated by professional nature guide Murray Hunt, offering premium small-group (max 10 passengers) wildlife cruises on the Daintree River.
Cruises are a special experience, with highly sought after birds, crocodiles and snakes seen on most cruises. Cruises are professionally conducted in a small open comfortable vessel which enables a quiet intimate exploration of the river with close views of wildlife. The vessel used is a unique ‘hybrid’ equipped with a regular outboard and a commercial-quality electric engine. The electric engine reduces disturbance resulting in outstanding close views of wildlife.
Two-hour cruises are conducted at dawn & late afternoon, when the river is at its most picturesque, sunlight, is at its best for photography, and when birds are at their most active.
Private charters for an hour or more are available for small groups wanting to experience the Daintree River at its best.
Cruises depart from the boat ramp in Daintree Village.
