Explore World Heritage Listed rainforest in the Daintree and Cape Tribulation, where the oldest living rainforest in the world meets the reef!

We start our day tour with a scenic coastal drive to Port Doulas on the Great Barrier Reef Drive with stunning views of the Coral Sea. Our tour includes return transfers from Cairns and Port Douglas.

Arriving at Mossman Gorge, at the southern end of the Daintree rainforest we'll be met by the traditional owners of the land we're about to explore. Here you'll participate in a traditional 'Welcome to Country' and 'Smoke Ceremony' with the Kuku Yalanji people before heading into the heart of the gorge where there is an opportunity to have a swim in the crystal clear waters of this iconic spot.

We will head further north to the Daintree river where we will search for crocodiles and other wildlife in this incredible ecosystem.

Journey into the oldest living rainforest in the world on our Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk where our knowledgeable guides will share with you the wonders of this World Heritage Listed Area.

Kick back in the heart of Cape Trib while your lunch is delivered directly to the beach. Soak up some sun or explore this natural and almost deserted beach.

The rest of your afternoon will be spent enjoying some spectacular lookouts, a cable ferry crossing of the Daintree River and even a scenic drive through Port Douglas.
