Daintree Croc Spotting Tour


Spot crocodiles and other wildlife on the Daintree River!

Bruce Belcher’s Daintree River Cruises offer a one-hour wild life cruise. We are keen bird watchers and have a good eye for crocodiles and tree snakes, with crocodiles being spotted on 98% of trips, particularly in cooler months (June to September).

We operate Daintree tours from our home on the banks of the Daintree River in a secluded wildlife boutique facility. Come and relax in our garden room, listen to the surrounding wildlife and enjoy a complimentary Daintree Tea or coffee before or after your Daintree river tours experience. Peruse our tropical souvenir collection. Meander through our lush tropical garden to our private jetty to board our vessel for a guided tour.

Our specialised small boats are specifically designed for small groups, as opposed to the usual 50 seaters on the river. Our small groups enjoy the personalised introduction with the guide and other guests
