Crocodile tours on the Daintree river
Crocodile tours in the Daintree are high on many tourists agenda, as
it is an experience to see these awesome ancient reptiles in their wild
On the Daintree river Dan Irby, the Mangrove Man, runs morning, afternoon, and sunset tours.
My personal favourite is the sunset tour as you get to see the Daintree river in day light, see the colourful sunset with birds flying to roost and bats flying up for the night;s hunt, and some night time spot lighting, crocodiles can be easier to spot at night as their eyes reflect the light of the spot light.
Mangrove Man Adventures does not focus on crocodiles as many others do, he caters for the serious birdwatchers as well, and is an very knowledgable scientist.
Another Daintree river tour boat is the Solar Whisper.
With their quiet solar powered electric boat and "croc-cam" to play back events that happened a bit too quick, this crocodile tour has more frequent departures throughout the day than Dan Irby above, so this may be a better choice for those travelling through.
