The Port Douglas River Cruise takes you on a journey that showcases spectacular coastal views.

Furthermore, you will witness the breathtaking sights of the rainforest-covered mountains. Enjoy spotting saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat. Amazingly, we see these incredible animals on 95% of our tours along with countless other bird and animal species.
