1.5 Hour - Port Douglas River Cruise | MV LDY-DGLS

1.5 Hour - Port Douglas River Cruise | MV LDY-DGLS

Short of time, but want to have an amazing river cruise tour experience out of Port Douglas? Why not Book for a morning, midday, afternoon or a stunning sunset cruise (1.5 hrs each) on the stunning Port Douglas Inlet. Jump on board this handsome riverboat, that looks like an old Mississippi paddle steamer, and see if you can spot any crocodiles up close as you ply the wild waterways. Your river trip and tour guides (Skippers Lucas or John) will take you on a unique cruise boat that will travel several kilometres from Port Douglas Reef Marina through the pristine mangrove-fringed channels of tropical Far North Queensland Australia. With an entertaining and informative commentary, you will learn about this fascinating estuarine habitat, its history and the wildlife you are seeing. Keep your eyes peeled! Estuarine Crocodiles are frequently seen on over 90% of these boat cruises, especially in the dry season (May – Oct). View them as they laze on the river banks catching the warmth of the sun, doing impersonations of abandoned expensive luggage. You might even see one open one of its beady eyes or yawn, showing off all of its 67 teeth and the most powerful jaws in the animal kingdom. This World Heritage area is rich in animal diversity. As you slowly cruise down the Dickson Inlet you will be serenaded by the chirrups of insects and the croaks of frogs. Looking up, you might see the circling of sea eagles, kites and ospreys. The flashes of electric blue could be a passing Ulysses Butterfly or the darting flash of Kingfisher hunting. Herons and Waders, on their long super-model legs can be seen waiting daintily on the shore for a passing fish. This is a real family cruise; the boat even has access for infants and strollers. The babies might be a bit too young to know what’s going on, but the older children will love the adventure and hardly notice they are learning at the same time.
