This hour and a half cruise on the inlet and river is a terrific diversion whilst in Port Douglas. It is well run, entertaining, educative and fun. Highly recommended and enjoyable for all ages.

My wife and I thought that an evening cruise would be a nice precursor to our evening meal. We were right. A glass of wine and a beer got us in the mood for 90 minutes of humour, interesting information and lovely calm scenery in the fading light. An experience we would highly recommend.

This was a lovely, relaxing sunset cruise. We had the chance to see a young corocidle 10 minutes into the tip. The captain knew the spots to look for other crocs, but we missed out this time. There was also a beautiful bird in the frogmouth family we saw sleeping in a tree along the bank, and if timed well may also get to see his mate.
The captain was very well informed on the history of Port Douglas, the locals and there establishments, and facts on the funa and flora seen.
With a free drink and light snacks, this was a very well priced, short tour up the river. Perfect if you are looking for something fun, informative and relaxing.

the Captain and hostess made this gentle amble down the inlet enjoyable, informative and entertaining - price includes a free drink (we had a beautiful cold beer) and a tasty morning tea - Captain knows who's who and what's what not only on the waterway but in the Port Douglas community - and kids got to drive the boat which made some little kids really happy

We decided to take this cruise on the spur of the moment. It was great fun and informative. We only saw the one small croc but it was a great trip all the same.
