Itinerary

If you love nature and the water, then this is the perfect tour for you!

After complimentary pick-ups in Palm Cove, Port Douglas and Mossman take a short drive north through historic sugar cane fields until we arrive at the Daintree Rainforest’s Mossman River.

Your highly trained river guide will help you get fitted out with a wetsuit, boots and a snorkel mask ready for the morning ahead.

Step into the cool, crystal clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle. Try to spot the elusive platypus that calls this river home- it is a rare sight! More than 30 species of fish live in this river, so you are sure to spot more than a few lizards, butterflies and rainforest birds are also frequently spotted on this river adventure.

This amazing eco-immersion adventure can be fast and exciting or slow and relaxing, depending on the weather and currents. A family-friendly tour, perfect for staying cool in the hot tropics.

This is a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out to the reefs and small children can journey safely down the river on large river sleds.

After an unforgettable time drifting under the rainforest canopy, it’s time to dry off. A short drive back south will see you arrive back at your accommodation.
