Private Charters

Why Book A Private Boat?
There are many ways to see the magnificent Daintree River and a private charter is inarguably the best. When booking a private boat you are in charge of all aspects of your experience, making it far more unique and memorable for your group. Our guides can cater specifically to you by giving you extensive information the surrounding flora and fauna or you can just sit back and enjoy the spectacular view. 


Some of our most common private charter requests include:

  • Birdwatching Experience
  • Scientific Research Expeditions
  • Picturesque Sunset Cruising
  • 5 Star Catering and Exotic Fruit Tasting
  • Arrival and Departure by Private Helicopter
  • Special Celebrations (Corporate, Birthdays, Honeymoon, Anniversary, etc.)


Cruise Times Are Fully Customisable
When organising a private charter we set aside a tour guide and boat specifically for your group. This means that timing is flexible and you are not restricted by our daily schedule. Initially we take a deposited payment for the trip and then if you chose to extend the tour, add extra guests or make any specific changes, we handle the rest of the payment on the day.


Suitable For All Ages

Our centre is designed to be wheelchair accessible. If you are travelling with someone who has specific needs or mobility issues, please call us ahead of time so we can make sure we have people available to assist you upon arrival and when boarding the boat.
For those with infants we recommend bringing a car seat or small pram if you do not wish to hold your little one throughout the cruise.
We are also very pet friendly. If you plan on bringing a guidance animal or a special furry friend, please call us ahead of time so we can accommodate them.
