  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Excellence the captain was awsome as,worth every penny :)
  • Excellent interpretive experience of the Barron River and Kuranda, including history and wildlife- flora and fauna. Very knowledgeable guide. You will see turtles, and many birds, including some nesting on the boat. No guarantees that you will see some of the fresh water crocodiles, but no-one can guarantee wildlife. Very relaxing experience. Try out their rainforest walk and morning/afternoon tea too.
