Enjoyed every minute of this tour. Excellent guide. Yolland( not sure of spelling) was so informative. Very passionate about the Daintree. I learnt so much. We saw and did so much in one day . Would love to come back and see more, next time I visit. Definitely worth going on this tour.

We are in our mid 70’s. We have snorkelled a number of times before. The staff were very attentive and supportive to ensure that our day was safe and extremely enjoyable.

Friendly helpful guides, great snorkeling place. Extra bonus swimming with turtles!
