  • We did not book in advance and did pay during boarding at 10:45. First we did cross the river to view turtles (fed) and fishes. Then we did go to the dam and back again. We saw two freshwater crocodil...  more »
  • Nice view of the rainforest and some nice facts! We saw and learned a lot. Definitely a must see when you're in Kuranda!  more »
  • The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and takes a slow boat along a relatively short stretch of the Barron River, only to rain forest over (and under the Skyrail cableway pass). The tour is accompanied by explanations of the tax woman. There is also a short fish and turtles feeding, but with bread, which is not quite up to date. Conclusion: Relaxing boat tour.

  • Great way to experience the Barron River & something “to do” in Kuranda instead of the sky rail/train which was too cost prohibitive for our family of 6. Our 4 kids (4-11years old) all loved it - fish & turtles were a highlight and even spotted a couple of freshwater crocodiles....although they are very camouflaged! Warren the skipper/owner was super lovely and very knowledgeable and patient. Thanks Warren!
  • Great 45 min tour ! Very good value for the price. We got to see crocs, turtles and lots of fish. Our guide Warren was very entertaining and gave us interesting facts about the river and rainforest :)
  • A pleasant 40 minutes. Knowledgeable Captain. 😉
  • Amazing tour. We were able to feed fish and turtles, having an amazing view. The boat wasn’t crowded at all. The tour guide was fantastic - informative and friendly. Great value for money. Couldn’t recommend more.
  • Absolutely loved our 45 minute river cruise. and feeding the turtles was an added bonus x
