  • Great way to experience the Barron River & something “to do” in Kuranda instead of the sky rail/train which was too cost prohibitive for our family of 6. Our 4 kids (4-11years old) all loved it - fish & turtles were a highlight and even spotted a couple of freshwater crocodiles....although they are very camouflaged! Warren the skipper/owner was super lovely and very knowledgeable and patient. Thanks Warren!
  • Amazing tour. We were able to feed fish and turtles, having an amazing view. The boat wasn’t crowded at all. The tour guide was fantastic - informative and friendly. Great value for money. Couldn’t recommend more.
  • Absolutely loved our 45 minute river cruise. and feeding the turtles was an added bonus x
  • Amazing experience. Best tour guide we’ve ever had! So much information and such a beautiful cruise! Do the rainforest walk as well, we saw a CASSOWARY!! Rare and amazing. Love this tour!!
  • Definitely recommended. Very relax journey and you can feed the fishes & turtles. Crocodiles may pop up if you are lucky enough.
