Private cruises, 2.5 hours in length, are suitable for small groups, families and individuals wishing either to experience the river in privacy or participate in a special interest such as wildlife photography. Private cruises enable me to concentrate entirely on your viewing or photographic wishes, whether they be stunning scenery or the special birds of the river such as Azure Kingfisher, Little Kingfisher, Great-billed Heron, Papuan Frogmouth and Shining Flycatcher.

Private cruises depart the public boat ramp at Daintree Village. Private cruises are conducted in the good light of dawn or late afternoon. Private cruises are generally conducted on lower tides to ensure good wildlife observations. Let me know what your hoping to achieve, the potential dates that you could attend, and I’ll check a tide chart and give you my recommendation.

Total cost for a private cruise for two passengers is $350. Extra passengers just $50 each.
