Awesome tour, we appreciated the passionate competence of guide and owner David White! Saw a croc, frogs, bats and birds ... and learned a lot about rainforest and especially Daintree River and its eco system! We absolutely recommend this tour!

The cooler months are better. The crocodiles will leave the water to warm themselves. The hotter months the water is warm so they don't need to soak up the sun.
