When it comes to exploring around Cairns and Far North Queensland the Daintree is often high on the agenda, yet many visitors don’t know that there are a range of ways to explore the Daintree. One of the best ways is by boat.
Located smack bang on the Daintree River, Daintree River Cruise Centre provided an excellent opportunity for the public to explore the mangroves, river systems and ecology of the ancient Daintree Rainforest at a slow and relaxing pace.
Take in the serenity of the stunning landscapes and wildlife as your river guides give you an in-depth insight into the habitat and species within the region. River guides consist of highly knowledgeable naturalists and biologists, so you can rest assured you are in good hands.
Cruising along the tidal convergence zone, there are opportunities for passengers of the cruise to spot and photograph crocodiles, as well as other local wildlife such as of snakes, frogs, lizards, insects, butterflies and bird life, some species of which are only found in the Daintree area. With this in mind, there are plenty of photo opportunities, so be sure to have the camera charged and ready to go. Cruises also operate several times a day, so even if you are running a little late, there are opportunities go head out onto the river even late in the afternoon.
When it comes to pricing, the cruise itself is quite affordable, so if you are out looking for things to do in Cairns on a budget, the time you spend out on the water and the tour itself is a very affordable option, not compromising quality for price.
