Crocodile Express was the first wildlife cruise operator on the river in 1979. Crocodile Express Daintree River Cruises depart from Daintree Village and a second cruise departs from Daintree Gateway just before the Daintree Ferry crossing. Both cruises are included in the one ticket. Your cruises will take you along sections of this spectacular waterway with your guide pointing out wildlife and flora along the foreshore and creeks. Our naturalist guide will interpret the importance of this amazing World Heritage location. A cruise on the Daintree River is a "must-do" activity as part of your Daintree Rainforest experience. The vessels are well equipped, comfortable and. stable in all weather conditions.
