Daintree River Cruises & Birding Day Tours

Wildlife Adventures by River & Road

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 as well as private wildlife-spotting day tours.

Cruises are a special experience, with crocodiles, snakes and highly sought-after birds seen on most cruises. Cruises are limited to a maximum of 12 passengers. Cruises are provided in a small open comfortable vessel which enables an intimate exploration of the river with clear view of wildlife.

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.

Private charters, at reasonable rates, are available for small groups, families, and those with special interests. Charters vary from one hour crocodile cruises to private wildlife photography cruises up to three hours in length.

Half-day and full-day tours combine a river cruise with a road tour to key wildlife hotspots of the wider region. Day tours are private to your group and are tailored to match your interests.
