Nature River Cruise

  • Daintree River Croc Capital
  • Unlimited Cruises


Exploring the rainforest doesn't have to be through the window of a vehicle or guided walking trails. There are many non-traditional ways to view the rainforest in the Daintree, which will give you a closer inspection of the wildlife, flora and fauna in the region, from the forest floor to the canopy above.



Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours

Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours are unique rainforest tours where you fly through the trees on flying fox ziplines, stopping at 5 tree platforms to take in spectacular bird’s eye views over the treetops. On each platform, a guide will greet you, connect you safely to the tree, and introduce you to different elements of the forest before sending you on your way to the next platform. The guides completely control your gentle flight, leaving you free to take photographs or just take in the views. This is certainly a unique way to see the rainforest up close.
