Port Douglas & Daintree River Cruises

The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world and is home to the most diverse wildlife! The Mangroves and Daintree River is densely populated with birds, snakes, frogs, fish, butterflies and crocodiles all living among side each other. For many visitors to the Port Douglas region the Daintree Rainforest is the highlight of their trip.

The best way to fully immerse yourself in the diverse Daintree wildlife is from the water and luckily there is a few different options to see the Daintree Rainforest from a boat!

Some Daintree River Cruises require a self drive to the Daintree and others include the river cruise in a half or full day tour, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
