What people are saying about Far North Queensland

We had a fantastic day with our guide Ben. The whole day ran completely seamlessly between the different activities and delicious food in between. Ben was really friendly, engaging and welcoming ensuring that all of us in the group felt comfortable. Additionally, he was like a walking encyclopaedia with his interesting knowledge about the area bringing the Daintree to life. Honestly could not recommend this tour or Ben more highly!! A huge thanks to Ben and the team!!

Was sooo fun and enjoyed every second of it. Was a perfect way to see the smaller channels without having to hire a boat. Our guide Patrick was also a great sport and took us out to try and see wild crocodiles which we did. Absolutely fantastic time and anyone can do it! Thank you, it was definitely a memorable first day of our Cairns trip!

We went Jet boating with Bad Fishy. The captain /owner was very professional and safety conscientious but not did he let rip in the places he was allowed to. The team at the base pontoon were friendly, helpful, patient and fun. All up was a great experience.

The tour and scenery are fantastic and to top it off, our tour guide Ben was the icing on the cake! thank you team.❤

Great fun speeding & spinning through the inlet! Even saw a croc in the mangroves!
