What people are saying about Port Douglas
I really enjoyed my tour of the Daintree rain forest. It was well organised and gave a great overview of this fantastic area. The group were quickly brought together and put at ease by our guide Dan, who did a fantastic job and pitched the tour at exactly the right level. All in all an excellent way to explore the Daintree with a nice combination of walks and a river cruise to see the crocs. Dan also acted above and beyond to step in and rescue a boy ( not part of our group) who had got into difficulty swimming in the Mossman Gourge.
Given how much there was to see and do in Kuranda itself, the less than 70 minutes was unsatisfactory and the Palm Cove stop could be skipped entirely and that time spent well for up to 2 hours in Kuranda. We raced through Butterflies, birds and animals exhibits in the wild, missed see the village itself and its aboriginal culture entirely. However, we loved the train and tram rides and their stops with history, nature and cultural information!
I loved this tour as it really demonstrates the Aboriginal Culture. I learned so much of just how we can live off the land. Nature that we just walk past all can provide hidden remedies that now I have some knowledge of and can share with others. Keeping in mind for survival and connecting with the earth!
Great day, we got lucky on only 6 were booked on the trip - felt like we had bought our own catamaran ! Great snorkeling, food and drinks were great and fresh compared to other trips we’ve had where after a day on a boat you get soggy sandwiches. Staff was very attentionate to our needs. Nothing to fault!
I have visited this very place 1989 and I have still pictures in my head from snorkeling around the waters that look like the images on your posters. Unfortunately it is difficult to denie how much the reef and marine live has changed.
