Take a tour of a lifetime on our local Croc spotting river cruise, while taking in the sites of the Hull River National Park and surrounds, its rainforest backdrop and the resident salt water crocodiles amongst the beautiful mangroves.
An Amazing 45 kilometre tour, up through amazing mangroves, past estuaries and crab pots. See crocodiles in their natural habitat. Watch as nesting Ospreys glide in the skies above. The animal life is stunning with Ibis, Egrets, Sea eagles and too many more bird species to mention.
Then as we meander up to the mouth of the Hull river we take a short break at the Coast Guard to check our pots and have a light snack before returning on our journey home.
This is by far, the best way to cruise the local waters of Mission Beach and see a few of the locals too.
