What to Expect


Departing early from the centre of town, our fun, local tour guide will greet you with a friendly smile and brief introduction about the days itinerary and adventures ahead.

Our first destination is Palm Cove Beach, where we observe wallabies and kangaroos in their natural habitat and visit the luxurious beach of Palm Cove!

Continuing to the beautiful Mossman Gorge! It's time to put on your swimmers for a refreshing dip in the amazing mountain river!

We then proceed on to the notorious crocodile infested Daintree River, where we board a small boat for sightseeing crocodiles, snakes, bird and marine life. During this time your local tour guide will attempt to catch some fresh river Mud Crab for dinner!

After the 'croc tour', we embark the Daintree River ferry on to the spectacular Thornton Peak, a scenic lookout for breathtaking photos of the oldest, low lying tropical rainforest in the world! This is truly a unique location where the rainforest meets the reef.

Our tour then continues north to Cape Tribulation and along the way guests have the slight chance, of sighting a highly rare and endangered bird called the Cassowary.

We then venture north to the cool tourist town of Port Douglas. Where guests have time to wander the streets checking out shops and local ambience of bars and pubs. We also find some time to visit the famous Four-Mile Beach in Port Douglas. Time to catch some rays and relax!

To finish off a perfect day, we invite our guests to relax on a secluded beach with a bonfire where they get to meet an Aboriginal guide who talks about Aboriginal culture and shows them how to play the didgeridoo.

After a big adventurous day we cruise back to Cairns listening to a variety of music! And guests have the opportunity to play some of their own tunes on the bus!  Being such a small and personal tour group, we'll invite guests to join in some fun and drinking at a local bar.
