Specialised Daintree River Nature Cruises

Cruises with a difference

Daintree Boatman Nature Tours is a small tour business, owned and operated by professional nature guide Murray Hunt, offering premium small-group wildlife cruises on the Daintree River and periodic cruises on the Mossman River.

Cruises are a special experience, with highly sought-after birds, snakes and crocodiles seen on most cruises. An average of 40 wildlife species are observed per tour. Cruises are limited to a maximum of 12 passengers. Tours are provided in a small open comfortable vessel which enables an intimate exploration of the river with clear view of wildlife in the sky and trees about the river.

Two-hour cruises are conducted at dawn and late afternoon when the river is at its most picturesque, sunlight is at its best for photography, and birds are at their most active.

Three-hour private cruises, at reasonable rates, are available for small groups, families, and those with special interests such as wildlife photography.

A limited number of cruises are provided per week on the tidal estuary of the Mossman River. Mossman cruises provide an insight to the flora and fauna restricted to the saline environment and is a great addition to a cruise on the freshwater section of the Daintree River.

Daintree Boatman Nature Tours offers a Special Offer. Dual cruises are offered for a total of just $100 per adult. Cruise the Daintree River at dawn AND dusk OR explore both the Daintree and Mossman Rivers.
