Overview

This is a great tour for those who only want to spend a half-day out or are short on time. We visit two areas on this trip, Daintree River and Mossman Gorge. We begin with a drive along the Captain Cook Highway, on the way to the Daintree River, and share a little history along the way. Here, we board a cruise along the Daintree River, looking out for local wildlife, including the estuarine crocodile, snakes, birds, frogs, and more. After the Wildlife Cruise, we enjoy morning tea with Lamingtons and tea/coffee. Once in Mossman Gorge National Park, we conduct an interpretive walk along an elevated boardwalk. Weather dependent, we can enjoy a dip in the crystal-clear rainforest stream, whilst being surrounded by the beautiful and healing Mossman Gorge rainforest. What a memorable way to spend your morning!

Great morning out!

Great trip packed full with things to do and see. River cruise was great, our skipper made sure we got to see crocs, tree snakes and local birds. Mossman gorge was so beautiful to walk through. Kim our guide was full of local knowledge and both of the guides were so friendly. I liked that all the staff were locals and knew the area really well.

Majestic scenery

Our tour guide was very informative. On the Daintree cruise we saw three crocodiles which was a highlight. The Mossman Gorge was beautiful. However, due to the recent rain we were unable to go for a swim. This didn’t detract from the overall tour which we really enjoyed.

No waterfalls

It was a big disappointment that the tour didn’t go to Cassowary Falls, instead, went to Mossman Gorge where there was no waterfall. The picture for this tour was misleading. The tour guide said they used to go to Cassowary Falls but not anymore.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Hello Mason, I am sorry that you were not aware that we no longer are going into Cassowary Falls. We have ceased going there from April 1st. We have done our best to change all brochures over along with our website, plus all the other booking page possibilities. Trust me, it has been a mission to do all this and not miss any. Unfortunately, this did not help you. We still do a Daintree River cruise and morning tea like before. We now head down to Mossman Gorge where we explain all about the rainforest before jumping in the gorge for a swim. This is a stunning area, surrounded by rainforest. There is no waterfall here though, but the water is beautiful. Even though you did not get what you expected, and I am sorry for that, I still hope you enjoyed your morning out. Thanks, Grant Knight Daintree Discovery Tours

Enjoyable morning with refreshing swim.

I throughly enjoyed the experience but I went with my mom-in-law and I did not think it was suitable for her. River cruise was lovely and saw a few adult crocs as well as a few babies, guide was very interesting. Mom-in-law was disappointed with the devonshire tea. Swim in the waterfall was amazing, loads of fish and turtles. Getting in was a bit tricky and my mom-in-law opted not to go in. 4 x 4 ride to/from waterfall was also fun but again, getting in and out was not ideal for my mom-in-law. I would recommended the tour but I do think more suited to a more active / agile person.

Waterfalls

Waterfall swim was lovely however everything else was below average . The tour guide seemed uninterested, sound system kept failing. River cruise was boring & average. Morning tea was terrible we had to ask for water on a 37 degree day. We had to squash 10 adults in to 4 wheel jeep that should of only take 8 at the most. This tour is way over priced for what they provide

Pearler of a tour

What a magical day! Picked up from our resort and treated to a relaxed and very knowledgeable guide, Kim, who provided great information about the Daintree and Port Douglas. Our river cruise was just wonderful and we even spotted the big croc Barrett cruising the river. Cassowary Falls was something that needs to be experienced not described, just stunning. Fresh scones at the local cafe and home by 12:15. Best money we have spent here so far. It is an absolute pearler of a tour.

Kim's knowledge and...
Liz_B
, Oct 2021
Kim's knowledge and personality were captivating as was Bill the Daintree River guide. The scenery was spectacular even though we didn't see a crocodile. The water hole in the Daintree forest was spectacular and a must do. As over 70's we found getting in and getting out of the water hole challenging to say the least. We found it a little bit embarrassing, Kim was very helpful but it still was difficult. Overall we would recommend this tour, thanks Kim. PS.The scones, jam and cream were excellent.

We had a marvellous time cruising down the Daintree river and even got to see a crocodile open and close it's mighty jaws! The area is so full of bird and animal life and the lush greenness of the countryside is stunning. Highly recommend this activity.

So beautiful

What a fantastic trip, a definite ‘must do’. Our hotel pick up was on time and convenient. The driver was both knowledgeable and funny. The boat ride was picturesque. Cassowary Falls is teaming with fish and turtles, the waterfall is beautiful and well worth the visit. The kids loved it and everything is Insta worthy. Lemonade scones topped off a fantastic half day tour. We will certainly do this trip again.
