  • 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!
  • Great 45 min tour ! Very good value for the price. We got to see crocs, turtles and lots of fish. Our guide Warren was very entertaining and gave us interesting facts about the river and rainforest :)
