Private photography tours are available for 3 hour sessions on the Daintree River in our dedicated boat with room for 4 passengers.
Private cruises are available for larger groups on request, contact us for details.
We tailor the tour to suit the type of photography you are interested in, whether that is photographing one specific species, general wildlife photography or landscapes. Although this is a dedicated photography tour, you will also get to learn about the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, the ecosystems of the river and much of the fascinating wildlife along the way.
Best cruise times
Times for private cruises are flexible, however generally early morning or late afternoon are most suitable for quality of light and activity of wildlife. If you have specific species you are targeting, let us know and we'll advise the best times to target them, for example low tide is often best for kingfishers and some of the wading birds.
Our dedicated photography boat is a 5 metre Cairns Custom Craft, with a quiet 50hp Suzuki 4 stroke motor. It is stable, has a shallow draft and good maneuverability, allowing us to access parts of the Daintree River system unavailable to larger boats. We aim to put you in front of your subject at the right time of day and in the right light.
The front of the boat has an open, flat deck allowing the use of tripods and unobstructed views of your subject.
