activities / Boating & cruises

Tour description provided by Viator

Explore Cairns’ waterfront on a two-hour harbor cruise. You’ll glide through Cairns’ mangroves and meandering waterways, and spot saltwater crocodiles basking in the sun. With informative commentary from the crew, it’s a fun way to learn more about crocodiles and their mangrove environment. You also have the option to include lunch at one of Cairns’ best restaurants located right on the waterfront prior to boarding the cruise.

Cruising through Cairns’ tidal estuary on the air-conditioned Crocodile Explorer, follow the waterways of this stunning estuary, backed by rainforest and mountains. As the boat weaves through the mangroves, you’ll have the chance to spot crocodiles basking on the riverbank, especially in the cooler months.

Your friendly, informative crew will share insights on the life of a crocodile, including their breeding habits. As you cruise along the Cairns waterfront, they’ll also highlight points of interest and share tales from the history of the harbor.

With external and internal viewing areas, the boat operates in all weather. On board you’ll find a fully licensed bar with snacks and souvenirs available (own expense), includes afternoon tea. Children can take a tour of the wheelhouse and they receive a Crocodile Certificate and crocodile coloring-in sheet.

You have the option to include lunch at Dundee's Restaurant, one of Cairns’ best restaurants located right on the waterfront and just a short stroll from the ferry terminal. Prior to boarding the harbor cruise, enjoy a two-course meal with a selection of starters, main courses and desserts. A children’s menu is also available.
