Daintree Tours

daintree tours

There is a wide choice of tours in the Daintree, and when you stay at Rainforest Hideaway your host will be able to explain all the differences and find the best suited tour for you.
The choice of whether to go jungle surfing, snorkeling, horse riding, sea kayaking, exotic fruit tasting, fourwheeldriving, crocodile spotting, or relaxing on the beach can be overwhelming, but have a chat to your host who knows all the tours and will be happy to make all arrangements for you.
With so many tours and things to do a stay of at least two nights but preferably three is recommended. Most tours do free transfers from Rainforest Hideaway B&B and other Cape Tribulation accommodation but other Daintree accommodation guests staying elsewhere will have to make their own way to Cape Tribulation first.

sea kayaking at cape tribulation in the daintree

In Cape Tribulation sea kayaking is the most exciting and eco-friendly way to see the beautiful Daintree coast.
Sea kayaking tours depart every morning and afternoon with free pickups from all Cape Tribulation accommodation.
The morning sea kayaking tour takes about four hours and is a good choice for those wanting to spend time out there and exploring as much as possible.
The afternoon sunset tour is a bit shorter in duration and has the advantage of seeing the sun set over the mountains, most of Cape Trib misses out on this but from the ocean you have prime viewing.
For the fitter kayakers and the keen fishermen there is another great option.
An all day kayaking and fishing expedition that departs Cow Bay beach at 7.30 am and arrives in Cape Tribulation at about 3.30 pm.
A fantastic day paddling, fishing, sailing (wind permitting) and exploring remote beaches.
A variety of fishing techniques will be tried depending on weather and fish that are regularly caught are mangrove jack, Trevally, and Spanish mackerel.
A maximum of one fish per person can be kept and we can sashimi and eat fish along the way.

There is a minimum of ten fruits on each tour, depending on season you may be able to try; mangosteen, jackfruit, salak, custard apple, abiu, rambutan, soursop, or if you're lucky the king of all fruits; durian!
After the fruit tasting and learning about them there is a walk around the farm where you can see how they are grown and what permaculture principles are used.
A very interesting tour that will change your perspective on the world of fruit.
